Once again though she is already on the end of the budget...plus for 200 bucks the HD4850 is the best choice. Less power and heat than a 9800GTX and performs on average better
She ended up getting the 4850. This is the build that she will probably end up with. I paid for it with my money and she just gave me what she had.
What you think?
