My System Specs


Anything sub-$1000 which can play current games at decent frame rates is a pretty good build AFAIC.

If I had to change anything it'd probably be the 550W Ultra PSU. I'm running a 600W ultra, but that was only after seeing it survive SKYMTL put it through one of his torture tests... If I hadn't been able to pick it up at a decent price (review unit) I probably would have gone with a different manufacturer.

In the end though, it doesn't matter what we think.... what's important is what you think. :)
