Planning to build a new computer system before the holidays? To get some ideas for your new system Firingsquad has published its Winter 2009 PC Buyer's Guide, you can read it over here.
Just in time for the holidays, FiringSquad is here to help you build that new gaming rig or upgrade your existing one. With a little help from Santa or some (hopefully well-deserved) self-indulgence, you should be able to get the most out of the slew of great games that have been coming out lately. Quite a bit has happened since the last edition of this guide, including the release of ATI’s next-gen DirectX 11 parts and Intel’s new Lynnfield-based processors for the LGA 1156 platform. All throughout, a turbulent economy and manufacturing difficulties have led to higher prices on components like RAM or hard drives and lower than expected supplies on most mid- to high-end graphics cards.
