First build - advice appreciated Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: April 21, 2008 11:36 AM in Systems Share Phork April 20, 2008 11:04:01 PM So this would be my first build and I'm looking for some of your expert advice. I'm on pretty flexible budget but I would like to keep it around $1,700 - $1,600.

It's only slightly faster than g92 8800gts. But if you have the money, go for it. Everything else good as is. akhilles April 21, 2008 11:36:14 AM What's the build intended for?
