$600-800 gaming budget (including shipping) Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: October 1, 2011 4:22 PM in Systems Share thenewx September 30, 2011 10:45:49 PM Hello Tom's Hardware forum, I'm a long time reader first time poster and I want to ask of your opinion of a new build that I plan to purchase within the next couple of days. My usage will focus on gaming and I do not plan on overclocking. Costs for a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and an OS are excluded. All units are in American dollars.
