That should save you some money. Also, you can go for a cheaper power supply if you are only going to run one card. Something like the Antec NEO ECO 520W should do. m 0 l Related resources Ironside Computer Custom Build Help - Forum Someone help me build a custom pc for 600-700$ - Forum Need help with a custom build - Forum Custom PC Build - Advice & Help Needed - Forum Help for my custom build - Forum Can't find your answer ?
