Re: GAMING PC FOR CHEAP(Please Rate)
For the video card, get an x1950GT for $115 and overclock it to x1950PRO speeds. It's the best price/performance ratio card you can get.
However, if you can find a 7900GS at around $120, I think PNY has one at about that price, it'd be a better choice, but it'll be easier to find the x1950GT for super cheap. (also I'm not 100% with American prices)
Either way, any of those two cards would completely destroy and humiliate the mid-range DX10 cards; 8600GT and 2600XT. Performance is a joke. Nvidia and ATI both took a shiet on the mid-range community. Some people are gonna be fuming when Crysis comes out and their 8600s and 2600s can't handle the extra DX10 features, while a high-end DX9 card, which usually costs the same or less, will play nice and buttery smooth.
