I'm putting the eggs in my basket, before I get the hen. We're supposed to be getting a profit sharing (xmas) bonus in the upcoming weeks. So I'm playing around with different build configurations, ranging from $450 - $750 CDN.
Ideally, I don't want to go over $600. But I don't even know if we're getting the money or not.
I was simply looking for the merits of each GPU. What makes one better than the other, given the environment in which it will be used.
I know I could get a better CPU. But I like the price of the 3.2MHz triple-core Rana. I'm upgrading from a 2.1MHz Athlon x2. I was told that this processor is not that difficult to OC, and that a 3.5MHz target isn't out of the question.
If you'd like to suggest I build my system around a specific graphics card, I would consider it. My limit is $200 CDN. And I'll change the other components to keep the price down.
