I'm looking for a gaming system that will last 3-4 years, with possible band-aid upgrades along the way to keep current. I don't plan to OC. I do have a monitor, mouse and keyboard (hence the KVM switch)... one system for iTunes, photo and movie storage and a new system for gaming. I'd like to keep the price under $1000, and as low as possible as this will be a second system and mainly a luxury upgrade. I think these components are solid buys, the CPU being a bit on the low end. Overall, do you think this is a decent budget build? Any horrible choices? All input is welcome and appreciated! Thank you for your consideration! gkay09 November 10, 2010 7:12:38 AM Some changes - For a gaming PC, IMO the X3 would suffice, also a 3.1GHz X3 would perform better than the 2.8GHz X4 in gaming... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
