ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Looking to build my first computer. Deciding after seeing retail computers way over priced as i often browse the net looking at computer parts comparing them to what other have in there store bought computers and what you can build for the same price it would be foolish to buy from retail. Here's what i have so far.
For $99 you might as well get the HD 4770...they are clocked much higher...
a few more dollars must be different in your opinion. thats nearly $100 more. I was thinkning about the 8750 triple core its $112, i know it will overclock to 2.9-3 easily possible even without voltage bump. but not totally sure how much performance it has compared to 7750 or the new phenom 2 x3.
