Hey everybody - I've built two gaming-grade desktops. I loved immersing myself in the technical knowledge that is required leading up to placing your order for a new PC. I spent months researching. That was three years ago now, and I'm pretty much out of the loop when it comes down to the real specific pros/cons of certain hardware pieces. My roommate wants me to help him build a gaming PC for the barrage of kickass games coming this winter. He wants to spend roughly $800-$1000, and as always, the higher the valuerice ratio the better. He already has a monitor for the time being, and is looking at an HDD for now; he'll get a SSD at a later date. I want to grab him no less than a GTX560, since those seem to be the best price point/performance from what I've seen (maybe you can tell me differently). One last thing, both him and I would prefer to use NewEgg, since I love their customer service/shipping, and he can pay monthly via the preferred account. So, guys, help me out here! I really appreciate it!
