Re: trying to decide between two builds
Best CPU -> Acer
Best GPU -> MSI (But not by a very large margin)
Best RAM -> Acer
Best Screen -> Acer
Best HDD/s -> Acer
A clear win for the acer. CPUs and RAM are as if not more important than GPUs when choosing a gaming computer. The difference between the 5850 and the 5870 won't be noticable unless you really look deep, and the Acer's specification in other area's eats up and spits out the MSI.
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black
