So far but not sure exactly what PSU to use and I am already over budget by 10 with no PSU. Also am not sure about a sapphire GPU not sure of their quality I want something that is going to last. The price does not have to include shipping.
Will 4gb ram be enough though??? That is my only concern and how good of quality is the sapphire because I can get a gigabyte or ASUS GPU for the same price if I build it this way
If your primary use for this is gaming... 4 gigs with the option to add 4 more should be fine imo. On the vid card....they were all priced about the same, I just added that one. Any vid card of your choice will do. XFX has great warranty's.
Sapphire quality is as good as any other Taiwan-based gpu manufacturers. However, their tech support is nearly non-existent. They do reply emails, but that's about it. XFX is one of the best in terms of tech support & warranty (double lifetime). If you plan on keeping the card for a long while, it's worth the extra for a better card.
