Thanks to Banthracis for the help More about : 600 gaming Best solution banthracis February 8, 2011 7:49:23 PM Save $4 on optical drive with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Unless you need usb 3.0 you can grab this mobo instead. Has xfire support. Asus Evo $89 w/ $15 MIR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Use above savings to: 1. Spend a little more to get a better PSu $75 Antec 650w earthwatts http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... just beware it doesn't come with a power cord. 2. Upgrade the GPu. An asus 5850 is only $150 now after rebate, practically a steal. For 1080p gaming you'll probably wanna get one. http://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-EAH5850-DIRECTCU-2DIS...
