New $900 gaming build - should I wait? Tags: Homebuilt Development Gaming Build Systems Product Last response: January 22, 2013 7:14 PM in Systems Share eckythump January 22, 2013 1:51:06 PM Howdy. I'm building a new machine, trying to keep under $900, need it for some development (C# .net) and gaming (one monitor 1080). My question... I can wait a month or so before I buy, in that time is their anything new coming out which would be worth waiting for? (New graphic cards/CPU etc) FYI Here is the build if you have any comments. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ytvw Thanks Paul More about : 900 gaming build wait eckythump January 22, 2013 2:11:17 PM (Sorry for posting this question 3 times - not sure what happened!)
