Default Re: a budget rig is born

You're not going to be gaming much on a GT220 either.
You can grab really cheap older video cards on ebay/craigslist. A GTS250/9800/8800 would give you much better perfs and still probably be cheaper.
You could also grab a Radeon 6750 or a Geforce 550 for slightly less than $100 and have both DX11 and better perfs.
Otherwise, you may be better off with a Fusion A processor and just use the integrated graphics. This should still beat the GT220...
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
