Default Re: a budget rig is born

Enter the buyer's remorse. Yep that GTS250 looks pretty sweet. Read a few reviews.. Found one on ebay for about the same price I paid for the 220. Oh well. Maybe in a few months I'll look into upgrading the card. I'm hoping kepler will push down prices of everything under it. I briefly considered the APUs but since I like to get my linux on, I tend to only consider nvidia. I also think the AM3+ platform gives me more options down the road.. thanks
