As soon as I can get it done. It really depends on how much research I need to do and how much work I can get done before my brain "crashes" Undecided

I'm doing several builds in each article with the tiers, so next article should cover the $800 - $1400 range or so.

The articles are really getting long. Very detailed and nice though.

Yeah, it's always tough to keep them short enough to not get too long, yet long enough to be detailed. Trying to do a few separated articles, so that I can post links instead of a full section in every build, like I did with FAQs and the like.

RE: $850 Gaming PC
On black friday, I finally bought a new PC for around $800 (although I saved about $50 because of the deals, so it's around $850) that got me an i5 760 and a 6870 (MSI twin frozr II). Of course, were you to go with a 470, that build could be even $50 cheaper. I can't tell you how good it is, as I haven't even built it yet (all I have so far is the case, rest should get here tomorrow or Thursday), but it certainly seems like a very good bang for your buck.
For reference, this picture is what I bought.
