Re: Building a basic gaming computer
Juice, I know where you're coming from. When you have a bad experience with a product, you don't wanna buy another product from the same company. I'm in the same boat right now.
I'd say for the video card look at the 9800GTX+. It's a good deal for the money (~$150), and is about on par with the 4850. I don't know how much you are looking to spend, but RAM is cheap now. The Q6600 is still a great processor, with a lot of OC potential.
