Recommendations for building the right enthusiast's PCs
by Cyril Kowaliski, Geoff Gasior, and Scott Wasson - July 5, 2007


WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW mid-range and high-end DirectX 10 graphics cards from both AMD and Nvidia behind us, it's high time for a new system guide. We've neglected the guide a little lately, but we've been swamped with other pursuits, including Computex and "Weighing the value of today's processors." In the meantime, the hardware landscape has been altered quite substantially. Processor and memory prices have plummeted, new CPUs and graphics cards have been released, Intel has rolled out a new generation of chipsets, and other manufacturers have introduced an array of new products to keep things interesting. With those changes in mind, we've concocted a brand-spanking-new system guide to, er, guide you through picking the latest and greatest hardware for a new build.

Because speed doesn't have to cost a fortune

Nice find, thanks.

The Sweet spot build seems the best to me. Although some of the parts from the ultra high end could be used also.
