We maintain several computer parts lists with recommended computer parts for a range of budgets. We update them every 2 or 3 months to keep you up to date with the latest computer parts.
We recently updated the lists.
Some of the highlights are:
$800 Gaming Computer - Changed the recommended CPU from a 2.5GHz to 2.8GHz. The upgrade was only $20.
$1200 Gaming Computer - Switched the Intel CPU to a Core i5 (motherboard as well)
$1800 Gaming Computer - Changed the recommended video card to a ATI 5850. These cards are crazy fast, relatively low power and support DX11
$2300 Gaming Computer - Changed the ATI recommended video card to the 5870. This is the higher performance version of the 5850 mentioned above. The recommended Nvidia card didn't change. It's still the GTX 295. This is a 2 GPU card. It's expensive and takes a lot of power but if you want the best...
Hopefully ATI will release a 2 GPU version of the 5800 series and take back the single card performance crown in a few months.
Most of the rest of the updates were price changes and substitutions for products that have been discontinued.
