New to OCN and the World of Custom Builds

Hey all!

Obviously I'm new here to these forums, and so far I've been living my lifestyle stock. Well, that is about to end because even though I've been a lifelong PC gamer I've only just recently decided to start my own build and go crazy (within my limited budget at least).

I've known OCN to be a good community based resource for such matters, so I figured it to be about time I stop lurking and start posting.

Anyway, I know I'll have a great time here and thanks everyone in advance for the help and community you provide.

Welcome! Setup looks good.

2x GTX 280's though? What price you getting them at?
Thanks all for your welcomes!

Well, I've actually not had great luck getting the cards at the price I can afford with my part time job. I went the eBay route but the bids drive past $220 each usually. I'd like to get them around $200 each at the most. I think I will just need more patience.

Do you guys think it best to get one GTX280 now, take it for a spin, and then get the second card next year when the new card releases will hopefully drive prices down?

I would get the GTX280, then get the 2nd next year, but then again, the time next year comes, you'll want something new

Welcome to OCN.

I myself also went from lurking a lot to registering, so I know how that is.
