Hey everyone, not only is this my first post but I am in the process of building my first gaming rig. It was the peerfect time to join, this is a good day in my life! : P Well I am in the process of building my first computer (budget-mid range gaming/video editing machine, or at least thats my goal) I am little nervous and ALLOT excited! I thought I had everything about ready to go and then one of my friends (who knows allot more about this then me) said everything was good besides my video card (4870) and that I should swap it out for an 8800GTX and I replied with something similar to "Whaaaaaaaat?" I dont claim to know a ton about computers but I do feel like I know a decent amount and everything I have seen point to the 4870 winning that battle everytime. But I dont doubt him.......well... he seems very sure of himself. I know the 4870 costs more but if it would save me from upgrading in the near future then I have no problem with that. Im not an extreme bleeding edge freak but... lets say I appriciate the finer things in life ; D What do you think? price vs performance/overall. Here is what I am looking at so far: Motherboard - ASUS P45 - Processor - Q9450 2.66GHz - RAM - Corsair 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 800 - Video Card - Radeon HD 4870 OR 8800GTX - Hard Drive - Seagate 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache - Power Supply - 650w Antec OR 600w Raidmax Aurora 2 Case - Apevia X-Discovery What does everyone think? I am totally open to any suggestions as this is my first build and any help is greatly appriciated. Thanks!
