My System Specs


NP. You're absolutely right the 3850 would be the best choice in that price range, don't know where my head was at. Maybe I have a soft spot for the 7900GS since it was my previous card.

I've heard good things about the newer Biostar TForce 560 AM2+ motherboard and it's a slightly cheaper price.

ok i picked the m2n-e sli because the m2n-e with the nforce 570 dont have enought voltage option

i was looking at the dfi infinity ultra mII which was 79$ on DC ...

arctic cooling cooler is a mush because they want their computer near silent, and i want to squeeze ra few mhz of that little sucka

has for the 7600GT i wasnt sure about it, but i will loook at other option, 7900gs seem to be a good deal but new ati card could be find for near the price of a 7900gs

i need this to fit the 600$ with tax and shipping and i need to keep room for a speaker set has my firend already have a 22in lcd and a new nmouse/keybaord combo

so far i will take a llok at all the option you guys gave me, but my firend dont wanna mess with the MIR,. and he want his computer ASAP, ( i think he wanna play some games during his X-mas break)

i wil buy the best part available when its in stock, and ncix shipping rate to northern quebec is just OVERKILL so thats why im going with DC
Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P / AMD Phenom II x3 720BE @ x4/ Crucial Ballistic DDR3 / Sapphire 4830 512mb / Corsair 620W PSU / 2*80GB Seagate
