Started Building My PC

Two components in, sitting at $800. WTF? I could buy two consoles for that.

You should start by not building a Mac

I'm not. GFX card and processor. Can you even dream of accessing those in a Mac?

I say you should just stop building and buy 2 consoles. Put them in SLI, and they'll still be less powerful than my computer I built in 1999.

You are not very welcoming to a future member of the Master Race.

Maybe so, but I don't want to have to upgrade it a month after I build it.

re: Started Building My PC
I'm eventually going to have to upgrade it anyway. What's the point of not putting something in that you will end up putting in six months down the road? Sounds more like a waste of money to do it that way.

Changed my mind after I realized it would need nearly immediate upgrading.

You already ordered those or are looking at them? Which model of the 680?

re: Started Building My PC
apparently running the latest games at max resolution with highest quality textures at over 60 fps across dual monitors, all while recording, streaming, and multitasking with 10 apps processing, and 6 browser windows w/ flash open in the background, is a requirement.
