How to shop for a computer:

  • pick a video card that occupies the sweet spot between price and performance
  • ask Newegg to display all the PCs containing that video card and sort by price
  • check the video card distribution

  • here the GTX 660 and GTX 760 are in the top three most popular, confirming that we are looking at the right options
  • the GTX 650 is second most popular, but performs much worse ( 1830 G3DMarks ) so I'm not considering it
  • if there isn't an $800 option, then pick another video card and start again
