More about : comments time computer build jaguarmatt November 25, 2010 3:03:28 PM You can definitely find a better deal on an SSD, perhaps look at OCZ's. The graphics card will be your bottleneck, IMO at least a GTX460 1gb if you prefer Nvidia. Other than that it looks like a great build. Will definitely be able to handle just about anything you throw at it with decent settings. Seriozouch November 27, 2010 4:28:38 PM I was planning on eventually upgrading the gtx460 it to double 460s in sli, but from what I gather it is just better to get a better single video card. I might spring for a 470 or 480 if they drop in price any time in the next few months. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
