Thank you in advance. More about : opinions wanted dndhatcher January 15, 2010 6:25:36 PM The cyberpower with the 5770 is going to game around 50% faster than the one with the GTS 250. It also DX11 and the GT250 is only DX10.1. MadAdmiral January 15, 2010 7:13:27 PM That's true, but the cyberpower one also uses DDR2. I'd recommend building one yourself. I assume you have a $900 budget. That could get you: CPU: i5-750 $200 Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro $190 RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $115 HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB $55 Case/PSU: Newegg combo: HAF 922 and OCZ StealthXStream 700W $130 after rebate Optical: Cheapest SATA DVD burner $21 GPU: HD 5770 $155 Total: $866. About the same price as those builds, but with none of the flaws.

MadAdmiral January 16, 2010 1:44:18 PM If you're a student (or know one), you can get Windows 7 for $30. If that's not an option: CPU: Phenom II X4 955 BE Mobo: Asus M4A79XTD EVO Usually in a combo for about $250 after rebates. Makes the total $826, including Windows. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
