Help lowering price for this build please Tags: Build Downgrade Systems Last response: February 16, 2013 4:29 PM in Systems Share Gregmillr February 16, 2013 1:12:21 PM http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/DSfz I really want that deal on the gfx card, so I don't think I'm going to downgrade that, but are there any suggestions? I need to knock it down $50 or so. Remember please I need it on the Canadian site!

Also, the ASUS vs the ASRock is basically quality. People say that ASRock is more bendable, while ASUS is nice a sturdy. And it's cheaper. m 0 l MrSlavw February 16, 2013 2:06:51 PM http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4... this card is even better m 0 l SHORYUKEN February 16, 2013 2:12:43 PM MrSlavw said:http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4... this card is even better I guess. This is a preference thing. Some people like AMD's ability to keep up with certain things, and others like NVIDIA. This is completely up to you. You want less power used? Go NVIDIA. You want better OC? Go AMD. m 0 l MrSlavw February 16, 2013 2:16:42 PM 650 w to much for 1 vd card , not enough for 2, maybe a 900 (iam running 2 7950s on a 920w)with that mb saving m 0 l MrSlavw February 16, 2013 2:21:08 PM its the same 7950 for less(it runs at 925 mhz with boost) m 0 l Gregmillr February 16, 2013 2:21:48 PM why is the vid card better? Looks the same. m 0 l MrSlavw February 16, 2013 2:28:28 PM Gregmillr said:why is the vid card better? Looks the same. it is the same for less $ m 0 l Gregmillr February 16, 2013 2:59:59 PM ohh yes, but I think I'm going with the one on the build because it comes with 2 free game I was going to get anyway, so it saves me more. m 0 l Gregmillr February 16, 2013 3:06:37 PM The new build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/DSjC + http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
