Very good builds. When you want a gaming machine for $500 or less, you pretty much have to love AMD They have the cheap market tied up at least, which is good for those of us who want to game on high resolution and high settings without breaking the bank on an i7 just yet.


If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!

AMD is generally the best option for budget builds but if you plan on doing a lot of overcloking the e5200 could be worth the slight price increase over the x2 7750.
