Default Re: So I'm building a computer on a $600US budget...

if you're really on a budget, i would lay off on the heatsink

and maybe even a smaller hdd, unless you are dl'ing tons and tons of movies

and pick out something like an e7400 (even if you get the faster e8400 it will still be outdated pretty soon by quads)

and see if you can even debo a dvd/cd optical drive from an older computer

and definitely focus more resources towards the gpu. this will make the most impact in your gaming experience
