Opinion Wanted in Part List Please

Dupras

63 months ago

Looking for an opinion on the part list provided. I am mainly using the system for day to day word processing and some gaming (The Repopulation, SWTOR, LOTRO). Ideally I am trying to keep things under 700, even lower if possible. I welcome any suggestions!

Thanks

Thanks for the input. So you essentially went with a cheaper board and ram and upped the video card?
