You can build a fairly decent computer for $1,200 these days. For the same amount of cash you could pick up an ASUS ARES graphics card sporting dual HD 5870 GPUs running each running at a full 850MHz. Couple that with 4GB of GDDR5 memory and you've got some serious horsepower available. Also included in today's roundup are two AMD motherboards based on the 890GX and 890FX chipsets. We also picked up another review of the Cooler Master V6GT CPU cooler (also reviewed by OCC here).
