Default Re: ~Rig me up for 400!!!

the 7600gt is better than the 8600gt, but the the 8 series can play dx10.

I've heard that the 8600gts is better than the 7600 though.

But the 8600 series wont be good choice for dx10 games.

For a cheap build I can now recommend this PSU

Newegg.com - Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-DB ATX V2.2 450W Power Supply 115V (90-132V) / 230V (180-253V) CSA, UL, TUV, FCC - Retail

Rosewill PSU's have been making a name for themselves and I even have an RP550V2-S-S2 powering my system right now.

I had that exact same PSU to power my system I bought for Christmas and It is still running in a friends computer to date with no problems. For the price you really cant beat the clean power that comes out of it on a tight budget. The reviews on it are just as good as the FSP 450w you will notice because honestly Rosewill do make the best budget PSU's you can buy and I am a huge fan of them. My Ultra X-Finity died on me in 2 months and those are recommended for budget however the RD450 I picked up for 35 at Christmas which people told me I would regret except it's still kicking.

E6300 w/ Arctic Freezer Pro 7 @ 3.6ghz 1.4Vcore
Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
2 8800GT in SLI
22" Samsung Syncmaster
1 250GB WD and 1 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0

I think 8600GT is much better than 7600GT

Here is a benchmark for you
AnandTech: More Mainstream DX10: AMD's 2400 and 2600 Series
