A lot of the time monitors will have great looking specs but are very disappointing when they arrive at your home. | Report abuse chinitams November 23, 2010 3:39:13 AM ok ok, Question: Why did you suggest amd? is it because of the budget or it fits well with my gaming requirements? | Report abuse chinitams November 23, 2010 3:40:08 AM @Karma831 ok ok ill keep that in mind. thanks for reminding me | Report abuse karma831 November 23, 2010 3:43:28 AM chinitams said:ok ok, Question: Why did you suggest amd? is it because of the budget or it fits well with my gaming requirements? Both. I'm sure you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between these CPUs and an i7 in gaming. AMD gets you the best bang for your buck. | Report abuse chinitams November 23, 2010 3:45:42 AM oh i see. they always say that intel is better than amd so i asked that question. haha. they keep telling me that i should get intel not amd. haha | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Need help! cheap build for starcraft 2> Related ressources: Forum~600 Starcraft 2 /Productivity build ForumCheap Starcraft 2 gaming PC ForumNeed help on building a cheap computer for SC 2 ForumWill this PC run SC 2 smoothly?
