Cheap system with Radeon 6950 Tags: Homebuilt Radeon Systems Product Last response: November 14, 2011 7:44 PM in Systems Share Kyogre504 November 12, 2011 9:20:35 PM Hey guys, can you guys help me build a cheap system for gaming based on the xfx radeon 6950 1gb? I already bought a psu (750w), HDD, and a DVD drive, so all i need is a monitor, case, motherboard, RAM, and cpu. Is this asking for too much?
