Budget Build of the Month, May 2011
It’s that time, bros. You want to own noobs with the big shots. You want to build a gaming rig capable of housing the most demanding games at decent settings, but you’re on a budget. (and build it yourself. It’s easy. Watch videos, bros.) That’s where I come in. Randomly I will be posting a solid mid-high end rig that will allow you to play the games you want, for cheap. I will be using the USA-based website Newegg for components. This weeks build will be featuring the AMD x6 series CPU and an XFX 6870 GPU. Let’s do this.
