Re: Newegg.com New Computer..Scope out my Build
Most here would recommend you do not get the 8600 GT... if you have enough squeeze out a few more bucks for an 8800 GT 256 or 512... OR if you dont you can get an ati budget card HD 3850 256 or 512 that will out perform an 8600 i believe.
Unless you are planning on buying that evga 8600 GT and going through a stepup program later on for a 9 series card or possibly an 8800 GT, 8800 GTS 512MB.... If you want to do that when you have more money you only need to pay the diffrence between the 2 cards and shipping... I did it with 1 of my cards.
And i'm glad to hear that your going to keep researching because prices ususally just drop, and you will learn more and there will be less chance of you buying something you dont want (coughcoughSEcoughcough)
good choice on the e8400 but its out of stock just to let you know atm... but thats alright since your still researching, but you can buy things on other sites cheaper just to let you know. the only downside is parts coming in at diffrent times.
