$1000 Slight Gaming Build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I haven't been keeping up with the recent computer hardware and my friend asked me to help him build a rig for some slight gaming. He plans on playing d3 for sure. He doesn't overclock or anything that is sophisticated. I just did a quick search for parts and I hope you guys can give me some suggestions. Thanks

Don't just assume newegg will be cheaper on everything. Amazon has really good deals on their products as well.

He shouldn't even need a 560. HOWEVER, getting a 7950 = eye infinity...

I say go for the 7950 if you can fit it in your budget. It has more staying power, mostly due to vram.

GTX 570 consumes more power and performance less then a 7950 more then that the 7950 is more futureproof give me one reason why would you recommend a person GTX 570 over 7950 headscratch.gif
