Need Help budgeting this set up Tags: Homebuilt Performance Build Systems Last response: January 20, 2013 7:50 PM in Systems Share tenaciousk January 20, 2013 1:53:47 AM http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yvUg So after a little while i think i really like the essence of this build, and i will be purchasing something like this by the end of the month... Was really trying to get the price down a little more. Can anyone see any place i might be able to cut cost without sacrificing to much performance?

It has a newer chipset which may help to get the motherboard a bit cheaper. dragonlord12832 January 20, 2013 3:23:42 AM Or you could get an A6 processor with a built in GPU and then get an AMD GPU and it will do something similar to cross-fire.
