It's usually cheaper too. Here's the cheapest gaming build I've been able to come up with, should be ok at low resolutions. i3-2100 ASRock H61M-VS Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D 380W MSI HD 5670 4GB G.Skill NS Rosewill R102-P-BK That comes to $350 on Newegg. It would really benefit from spending an extra $50-100 on the graphics but as i said, HD 5670 is ok at low resolutions. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
