Default Re: a budget rig is born

I was particularly cautious about cheaping out too much on the gfx card. I'll probably regret that when I get around to installing win7 and trying out some more modern games. Actually at the last minute I decided to go for the GT220 instead of the 210. Basically spending more than $100 on any one part makes me cringe. Thanks for the suggestion.

The Rig
ASRock 970 Extreme3 AM3+
AMD Athlon II x2 260
DDR3-1600 (2x2GB) Kingston HyperX
Western Digital caviar 1TB
ECS GeForce GT 220 1GB
Cooler Master Storm Scout ATX case
Corsair 750W PSU
