    I like how they go on about it not being expensive

    corsair dominator ram
    Lian Li case
    8800gts

    thats probably most of the cost right there!!!!

    change the case to a CM centurion 532 (the front bar one)
    RAM to some other stuff
    8800gts to an X1950 pro or 7900 series card or 8600gts soon

    loads of cash saved

    In this article, you are looking at the cost in contrast to a boutique or prebuilt PC. Read the title and the information. This is simply a guide on how to select components, not a super cheap budget build guide. And, anyone reading this should realize that none of it is etched in stone. The reader can change any component based a variety of reasons such as brand loyalty, budget, performance, OCing, etc. Our readers ask for this type of information daily at our home forum which is why it was written.
