    I wish it was that easy.. but i need a OS aswell that add's up to 650$, no higher.;/
  3. The gpu is the most important component for a gamer. See if you can't do better there.

    The $70 6670 is ok, but perhaps a 6770 @$110 would be better.

    You can back off of the 2120 to the G860 cpu without much loss.

    Do not get vista when windows 7 is so much better.
