Gaming PC Build, better MB? Tags: Homebuilt Build Systems Last response: March 17, 2011 6:00 PM in Systems Share chronochaz March 17, 2011 3:00:04 PM Hay all; So I have the following build lined up to buy but still have a little more cash about. I'm wondering what I should spend it on? Should I get something like a SSHD or just get a better MB? Here is the Build Plan atm (Not yet perchesed): Case: Antec 900 £77.75 MB: ASUS Sabertooth TUF £149.50 Processor: Intel i7 950 £207.80 Graphics: MSI GTX 580 £395.50 HD: Samsung Spinpoint 1T £38.90 Fan: Xigmetek DarkKnight £30.62 Power Supply: XFX PI 850S NLB9 £86.75 This totals at around £987 from the sites I've found, I have around £120+ more I can spend on it so far.. So for a decent Gaming PC, what should I look at making better? I have some RAM (8Gb over 4 strips of 2Gb, 2 different brands however) and a basic LG disk reader and Windows 7 Pro (64) Keeping in mind that I want to be able to upgrade on this if needs be for a few years at the least. Thanks so much for your help so far!

You wont need to update your graphics for 2-3 years. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Gaming PC Build, better MB?> Related ressources: ForumBetter gaming build ?
