    I'm building a new system consisting of an i5-2500k with ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 and GTX-560 or 6870 system. I will never use SLI or Crossfire. Just one optical drive, and one hard drive, looking for a no frills but solid psu. Around $50 or less from Newegg please. Thank you.

    Recommend Gskill ram to go with ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

    I'm building a new budget priced i5-2500k rig from newegg. Is 4GB (2x2) sufficient for gaming and light multitasking ? So 240 pin DDR-3 1333 speed is what I want ? I see 10600 and 10666. What about latency, is 9-9-9-24 good enough ? Thanks in advance. Edit: Does this look ok ...

    Best sub $200 video card ?

    Simple question, what's the best sub $200 video card out now ? I'm building a new system for the first time in a long while. I'm looking for something to go with an i5-2500k. I'm inclined to go with Nvidia since I haven't bought one of their cards since NV25. But ultimately I just want the...

    Best "budget" LGA 1155 MoBo for overclocking

    I'm finally ordering parts for my new build. My last gaming system, which I haven't bothered to boot in over a year, was a single core opteron and X1900. :eek: I've settled on an i5-2500k and GTX-560 or 570. I don't need SLI. I just want a basic board that has the chipset to allow...

    What's the minimum PSU for an HD4850 ?

    I helped my brother build a new system last night. And I need a recommendation for a decent, budget PSU available from Fry's Electronics or Newegg. Hopefully $50 or less. It's a budget build, we tried to reuse as much as possible. He bought a Phenom X4 925 and ddr-3 memory, MSI 790GX...

    Nintendo passed on Natal

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=232754 The natal games will be light on graphics so I doubt the loss of the chip will matter. Is Killer Instinct still in the works ? Or what is Rare doing ? Still secret ?
