The Tech Report has revisited their line up of recommended system builds, thanks to the new season’s processors. AMD still rules their Econobox, with the highly overclockable Phenom II X3 720 BE and the HD4850. The Utility Player gets an update with a nice Lynnfield processor on a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R while the Sweeter Spots uses a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P and a faster Lynnfield CPU. The Double Stuff system is of course the most impressive build, 12GB of DDR3-1600 along with a few other twinned components will get you ahead of the pack and for only $2,600!
