Desktop in April

  harmeetb 12:00 12 Mar 2006

Hello everyone,

I have read the magazine for a while now, but this is my first post in the forum.
I am going to buy a new desktop in mid April for about £1500-£1600. I have looked around and decided on probably custom building a Vantage click here) similar to the Black Thunder (click here.

As I will not be buying for about a month does anybody have any other suggestions (company) besides building one myself or know about any price drops in the next month.

Also I have a question about SLI, is it possible to have two different cards in this configuration or do they have to be the same. If it is possible to have two different cards should I go for one powerful card and one slightly weaker card (one Geforce 7800GTX 256 and one GeForce 6600/800 256) or combine the money and just getting one GeForce 7800GTX 512.

Thanks in advance.

The 2 SLI cards must be the same.
