You can build a perfectly good loungeroom / home theatre PC and completely skip a discrete video card. That said, if you want your machine to have enough grunt to run most games at reasonable settings, it can be wise to shell out for a decent GPU. MSY is currently selling ASUS-branded RX460s for $119, a nice discount on hardware that usually retails for $150 or more.


RAM drives aren't as popular as they used to be, with the speedy performance of solid-state drives good enough for most. But they still have their uses and with the average PC sporting 8GB of system RAM, sparing a couple of gigabytes is not a problem. The thing is, video cards are starting to pack on memory as well. So, is it possible to use GPU RAM as a virtual drive? Certainly.


The hardest part of building a PC is picking the parts, especially when everyone around you seems to have an opinion. And no flame war is more prevalent than the NVIDIA snobs vs the AMD fanboys. What's really going on with these two companies, and which card should you get?
