My son recently received (today) a new Phantom NZXT case for his first gaming build. Needless to say, we know very little about doing this and came to you for help. While I applaud his ambition, his Dad is not much help here.
Can you help us?
If you had a budget of $800 and this case, what would you build? Please excuse my ignorance in this matter, but who better to ask help from then experts such as yourselves that have done this before?
This is a gaming PC. He already has the keyboard and mouse. The monitor he has as well, although I'm sure he'd like to upgrade. That might be something down the road. Biggest concern is the build within the case.
why not the 6870? it runs much faster than the 6850 and it fits the budget, yes i agree. it depends on the resolution. a 470 would maybe to much.
Thanks so much for the information. Maybe I should also mention that I will supply the OS, so that can be taken out of the equation. That being said, would you spend the $$$ somewhere else and upgrade?
I'm sorry I didn't mention that earlier....again, kind of new to this.
Thanks again for the information...it is a tremendous help!
