Re: Building my first computer
Any particular reason you are wanting to stick with Nvidia? IIRC, the 6870 outperforms the 460.
Just buy from Newegg. They are usually the cheapest place, they have great customer service, decent shipping, and have always been where I have ordered for my computer business.
Also, do you need an operating system? Remember to get a 64 bit OEM if you do. Look on Newegg for a monitor...I can recommend one in a bit if I remember to check back. Asus and Acer are both great brands for monitors.
