    Default Help me build a budget computer for Rift

    I haven't built a gaming rig in a long time, not since I was running one of those ancient AMD clawhammer cpu's and a 9800GT lol. I was thinking of doing this build but I really need help with it, especially when it comes to potential bottlenecks. If any of these parts look bad, or could be replaced with something better please point it out and recommend a replacement. The only thing I'm not open to replacing is the SSD as I've seen these in action and I will never go back to an HDD.

    PSU + Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.594816

    Total = $711.93 shipped. Please try to keep it around the same budget, I'm open to going over a little if it makes an impact <3 Also I live close to a Microcenter if that helps

    Yeah pretty solid parts there mate, personally I'd go a slightly beefier PSU but the one you selected should do the job.

    Thanks, I plan on flashing the firmware too on the 6950 so it becomes a 6970, would that bottleneck anything?
