TR's July 2007 system guide
Recommendations for building the right enthusiast's PCs

mid-range and high-end DirectX 10 graphics cards from both AMD and Nvidia behind us, it's high time for a new system guide. We've neglected the guide a little lately, but we've been swamped with other pursuits, including Computex and "Weighing the value of today's processors

Processor and memory prices have plummeted, new CPUs and graphics cards have been released, Intel has rolled out a new generation of chipsets, and other manufacturers have introduced an array of new products to keep things interesting. With those changes in mind, we've concocted a brand-spanking-new system guide
