Looking to get a decent rig for playing some PC games, but I'll be looking to upgrade down the line
. I've got about $700, but I would hate to spend all of it unless I was really getting a killer deal.
I'm not terribly confident in building, but I'm not really sure what's involved there...
I've been comparing prices online, and I keep going back to this: Gamer Ultra SLI GT
. Am I paying too much because I'm not building it? Also, is this even a deal? I don't plan to run Crysis anytime soon, just some Star Wars Galaxies (:laughing
and some home music recording.
I realize there's plenty of alternatives out there, but this one jumped out at me. Opinions greatly appreciated!
