I am thinking of buying the NewEgg.com DIY Custom Build Core i7-2600K/Z68/8GB/1TB/THOR V2 SuperCombo. I was wondering if the price is good on this thing, and if it can handle games like Minecraft, TF2, Portal, and if it could also handle a Capture Software like Bandicam...


Here is the URL to the Computer.

Everything seem to be powerful enough, but the main question is where is the GPU? :o

Probably the 2600k's HD3000 IGP.

Not much space to squeeze a GPU in a $850 i7 build.

Intel's IGP are good enough for source stuff I suppose. You could get a graphics card off ebay, the 8800gt is better than what you have and that can be found cheap
