WR2 August 1, 2010 11:55:23 PM Looks like a nice start (except for the RAM). I think I'd like a GTX 460 better than the 470 if I were in your position. What resolution monitor will you be using? Using NewEgg.ca? Or maybe NCIX. NCIX I think. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer kanadien August 2, 2010 4:55:20 PM which ram should I get? and I know its not as good of bang for the buck but I would still like to go with the 470 because it is more powerful and I have a 24" 1080p monitor to use it on Can't find your answer ?
