    Re: Post-NY budget gaming rig.

    Come back to this thread on the 7th.

    As for GPU, a GTX460/ Radeon 6850 is capable of playing everything game at around or above 60FPS @ 1080p.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Yeah this seems to be the idea - depending on the prices after 7th a lot of things can change.
    and I am pretty sure on the GPUs now and like you said I will be mainly picking between those two.
    Thanks for contributing Terbinator

    this is definitely an interesting build and I guess spending a bit more on mobo is a good idea seeing as how this will be worth it in the future.
    only question is ram you linked cat - isn't it supposed to be orientated on working best with intel cpus ?
    thank you for your time cat - gives me slightly different pov on the whole thing but it is perfect price wise since I believe after NY i'll save a tiny bit on some components and get to improve mobo like you suggested without going over budget.
    The AMD AM3 CPUs can work with both high voltage and low voltage DDR3 DIMMs so they are less picky than the Core i5 processors.
