    I see a lot of people starting to build their own computers. I guess thats a sign I should finish my DIY guide :p.

    Anyway, for anyone thinking of moderate to heavy gaming, I HEAVILY suggest the Nvidia 8800GT.

    Heres why:
    AnandTech: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT: The Only Card That Matters

    8600GTS cost about 170-180 dollars.
    8800GT cost about 220-240 dollars.

    For 23% more money, you get up to more than 400% more performance. It provides the best bang for buck for any graphic card out there. It almost matches the 8800GTX that costs $550 !!

    The only competition is the ATI 3XXX series but not until they knock the price down a few more dollars.

    If it's taking you forever to finish a guide, then all your information is going to be obsolete! Just head over to the system building guides that Anandtech and HardOCP put together. They're updated every quarter and contain quite a bit of good information.

    Anyone want my eVGA 8800GTS 320MB SuperClocked for $165 shipped?
