But this will allow for an upgrade to video card if there is a change of mind in future. Plus Microcenter did not have the 430 in stock Related resources First-time build, moderate gaming, sub-$700 - Forum Fast , Quiet Non-Gaming PC Build - Forum Help A Girl Out II Moderate Build Sub $1000.00 - Forum Need fast /reliable laptop for college - Forum Moderate Non-gaming PC for home office - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Best solution ScrewySqrl July 11, 2012 3:22:18 PM that should work fine, and should take up to a 6850/7850 AMD video card, or up to 550ti/560SE from NVidea (maybe the 660?) sirjoe25 July 18, 2012 5:53:47 PM My system is complete and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The only thing I would have done differently is install Linux only instead of dual Windows/linux. I never use Windows now that I have Ubuntu installed. sirjoe25 July 18, 2012 5:54:10 PM Best answer selected by sirjoe25. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
