Do you have the option to upgrade to a ATI 5770 instead of the GTS 250, which isn't the best of gaming GPU's. Also, have you looked at building one yourself versus buying on from CyberPower? m 0 l rotciveel June 23, 2010 4:51:47 PM What is the difference between the two i5's? And yes, I can change to the ATI. I don't know much about GPU, but I thought Nvidia was better for the price? I haven't really looked at building myself one. I don't know enough about the compatibility of hardware, and I don't trust myself enough to make it correctly. m 0 l Related resources Please check out the components I chose for myfirst computer - Forum Check out my new build please - Forum Please check out my new Gaming Rig and help cut potential waste - Forum Please check out this gaming setup. - Forum Can someone please check this build out - Forum Can't find your answer ?
