Re: help with computer parts

Mate,

Go with an nVidia card. ATI have been havin ALOT of trouble with most of the new games that have been comin out lately. I have a 256mb GeForce card and its damn good! Ran Far Cry on me and a mates nVidia system, and it shat all over his brothers ATI system that has almost identical specs.

Re: help with computer parts

I would go for the 256mb, I have an ATI Gigabyte 9800XT 256mb and it kicks ass, But at $800 it should.

Re: help with computer parts

no, no SATA, the NF7-s does tho, that ones about $139
Asus boards are good, cheaper n-force2 boards are a bit dodgy, wouldnt touch an epox with a 10ft pole
