Hey, okay, i am going to ask the community here at Toms if they could come up with a gaming Rig for under $950. But here's the catch, it has to include this monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and Windows. Future Xfire/SLI upgrades options would be nice but i really don't need them unless i end up getting a eyefinity/surround setup. I'd like to get a few lists and then chose one. Since i am having a difficult time finding a good price/performance setup.

Thanks,
Ventorus

P.S. i like to make my posts sound as if i am talking to someone, gives them some feel.
P.P.S. i am coming from a laptop with a 1.7GHz C2D, a GT210M and a 500GB 5400RPM HDD, so ya...

More about : ummm dunno

sorry for the format, this is a newegg shopping cart. you can search for the item numbers and i have linked the combo deals. this build will not allow for xfire/sli or overclocking, but you simply wont be able to do better for the money, and it will be quite a nice gaming rig.
