What exactly do you need a bump for? The rig he specified is good enough really.

Well, when money's involved you always have to be opened to other opinions. Also kind of wanting to know more on the memory card hard drive things, and other's ideas on what video card. I kinda ****ed the terminology on that, but yeah. Lol.

Not many more opinions to be had as that is the going rig right now for the money. Problem with it is, with a budget of 700 dollars it leaves not much room for an actual decent video card.

Well, the thing is I'm building it up over time. So the price is really flexible. I kind of figured 700 is the average price to run games etc. I mean, it's not like I'm paying a big 700$ right up front. Just collecting the parts over time. I'd prefer not to go over 900, but it is what it is. As long as I can play all my games and have just an overall nice computer I'm satisfied. I'd like having it done around new years. So yeah, I got time..and time is money.

Good way of going about things, but the problem with doing that is supply and pricing fluctuates about every 3-6 months for computer parts. One month you will see a monster video card going for a good deal then 4 months later when the next thing comes out supply and demand dictates they discontinue or price high due to low demand and stock. If all goes well, get the rig he said up there ^^ and add a 570 to it. By the end of the year the 570 will be a lot cheaper, if still in stock. If they deactivate the product then substitute with 660ti.
