Ask ! Get the answer Zero_ January 24, 2012 3:21:07 AM Check my sig. Look towards stepping up from the $1000 build. Since you are buying around march, you should probably go for a HD7850/7870 depending on price/performance. Also, 750W should be plenty to CF two of those. Corsair TX750 going for $105. Neocentric January 25, 2012 12:31:32 PM Im getting the LCD tv due to the fact that my g/f will be getting it and I will be getting my plasma back in a few months. Once that happens I will be getting a 24" monitor. Until then the LCD will work for everything for me. Mousemonkey January 25, 2012 3:42:10 PM Neocentric said:*bump* Don't...
