Graphics Card And Hard Drive
Graphics Card: Sparkle SXX460768D5UNM
The level of gaming sought for this system would require a potent DirectX 11 graphics solution, and we were thrilled to find the Sparkle SXX460768D5UNM GeForce GTX 460 768MB for $160. This reference clocked Fermi, has 336 CUDA Cores, 192-bit memory interface, and 768 MB of GDDR5 memory. More technical details can be found in our GF104 launch review.
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F4 HD322GJ/U 320 GB
The Samsung Spinpoint F4 HD322GJ/U 320GB SATA 3.0Gb/s was an attractive option, setting us back a couple bucks less than September’s hard drive, while providing a small boost in storage capacity and double(16MB) the cache.
