(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-09-18 12:51 EDT-0400) More about : buying today final checks rabowz September 18, 2012 4:56:01 PM I meant to change the memory to something with a lower profile than the high fins on that one. Does anyone have a suggestion on a better memory choice? Also, the video card situation... I would like to stay around $200. There were 2 7850s by Sapphire, one with 1 GB OCd and one with 2 GB, not OCd. Which would be the better choice. Or can I get better performance elsewhere m 0 l TheBigTroll September 18, 2012 4:59:30 PM here you go http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hQj0 -better case -lower profile ram -better video card -ever so slightly better ODD m 0 l Related resources Final check on this rig, buying today and tomorrow - Forum Need your help - FINAL CHECK - BUYING today - Forum Final check, buying today, 1st time builder! - Forum Buying Today - Final Check Please - Forum 3rd and final post gaming build (buying today) !
