HotHardware Holiday Gift Guide

Article Index


Our goal while putting together this guide was to arm you all with the knowledge necessary to design systems that would fall in three different price ranges: a low-end system at under $750, a middle-of-the-road system at approximately $1600, and a high-end rig that really didn't have a budget ceiling.

Please keep in mind, however, that with the number of different product recommendations on the previous pages, there are a myriad of system configuration options to choose from.  For those that are less inclined to shop around though, we've eliminated the hassle and compiled a parts list for a trio of systems...

System 1: High-End Intel Rig

Total Price - $4650

System 2: Mid-Range Quad-Core Intel

Total Price - $1655

System 3: Budget AMD

Total Price - $725

We hope that you've enjoyed our 2008 Holiday Buyer's Guide as much as we've enjoyed putting it together for you.  We here at HotHardware wish you and your families a happy, healthy, and safe fun-filled holiday season.  Thank you all for another great year in 2007.  See you all again in 2008!
