Well my aunt could only hook me up with a GTX 460 2GB and she said even though GTX 560 would be coming out soon she wouldn't be able to get that for me until probably a year. I'll upgrade my graphics card in about a year though. m 0 l Related resources First Proposed Build - Please Critique - Forum any critique on first time build? - Forum First Ever PC Build (low budget) and Looking for critique - Forum First Build In A long Time, Looking For Critique - Forum My first build for 2300 please critique my build - Forum Can't find your answer ?
