Review my build Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: November 10, 2010 2:03 AM in Systems Share rth95 November 9, 2010 6:45:46 PM Building a new system to run Lightroom 3. Little to no gaming. Decided to go AMD primarily due to price. Wanted to be between $500 and $600 but that doesn't look it will work out. Note....already have Powersupply and HD for system. Selected memory by using Crucial configuration program. Checked cosair and G Skill but couldnt find memory specific to the board. Need suggestion for single video card.
