I see thanks.

Off-Topic: Is it just me or am I noticing less PC games that truly try to "push tech"?

Should I get this card instead of this one?

No get the msi one. The evga card is an older generation card and has handicapped performance compared to the newer offerings.

Though on a random note, thats freaking cheap as **** for that card... Retail originally was $300...

Also, no lately there haave been a number of releases that are pushing the envelope. However, developing games take time so there are periods of slowdown of new releases for that reason.

Okay I think I've got everything I need.

Now where could I go to get help with building a PC? *I.E. is there a topic?*

EDIT - Here's what I have:

Video Card

Processor

RAM

Motherboard
