More about which graphic cards
  1. What is your budget in $USD?
  2. All of these computer are $500 and about to $700 and I can afford $800 and yes the computer I'm looking at have these already in them.
  3. Would you be opposed to building the computer from indiviual pieces?
  4. If you have to pick from what you listed, by far the 2nd option.
  5. Some mobo (785G?) $60
    Phenom II 550 $100
    Some case (Tornado or something) $40
    PSU (Something decent) $50
    RAM (4GB DDR3 Dual-Channel)$70
    HDD (640GB) $60
    --$380--
    HD5770 $160
    --$540--
    Cooling (CPU FAN) $20
    --$560--
    Am I missing anything?
  6. No but I might just get a gaming computer out right an Asus or Alienware cause really buying part's would be a bit more money then just buying a new computer right? Besides it has to be a laptop.
  7. $800=

    i5-750 @ 199.99
    GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3L @ 99.99
    Any case you like @ ~50.00
    Sapphire 5770 @ 159.99
    Various good 500W+ PSU's @ 49.99-69.99
    1TB HDD @ 89.99
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 @ 109.99

    = $760-$780 and a pretty rockin system for that budget

    Get for a few more $$'s get a good CPU cooler and OC the pants of the i5! :P
