$800 gaming pc? Tags: New Build Power Systems Last response: February 7, 2010 7:22 PM in Systems Share smoovyc February 7, 2010 4:56:26 PM Ok, I've been bitten by the bug to get a new pc. I mostly want the processing power for some editing/rendering capabilites. Not so much dealing with multi-tasking, but will not rule it out. Also, I consider myself an occasional gamer, and would like to keep up with the current games. At least 2 to 3 years... So, I'm looking at: http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Configurators.aspx?mid=9...
