Default Re: Building new rig, advise?

Thanks everyone but i dont think a quad core fits into my budget and i probly wont use it to its full potential, so ill stick with my dual.

A True Folder- staticice is a really helpful site thanks!

I did do some more research and i have found this:

CPU/Processor AMD AM2 Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 6000+ 3.0GHz 176.00

3.5" HDD SATA-300 320GB 16MB Seagate 99.00

Desktop DDR2 Ram 2GB (2x1024MB) PC8500 1066MHz (Samsung Chipset) 77.00

MotherBoard AMD AM2 S940 ASUS M3A (Phenom 64 x4 /FX) 121.00

5.25" SATA DVD Buner/Rw Samsung SH-203B 20x (OEM with Nero 7.5) 38.00

ATX CASE CoolerMaster Centurion 5 RC-T05 with 460w Black 105.00


Prices once again in AUD. and from http://www.itestate.com.au/

Think its better or worse than before?

Get a case that costs less and save yourself that money. I got a $40 case and it works fine for me. Otherwise, that build looks pretty good from a short glance at it.

Ok... Thanks i guess...

I really want to build this computer... except one small problem

I dont have the funds to buy the parts :'(

I was thinking about selling my PSP and 10 games for like $450.

Because i rarely ever play it anymore.

thats a much better rig than the initial one. the 770 chipset is a good choice and it will allow for the phemon later on if you want it. and seeing as how your not xfireing you should be fine, i went with the 790x just for that lil more uumph but you should be set for what you will be using it for now

and 700 dollars isnt bad at all for what youre getting....the first time i built mine it was around 650 and i didnt get anything close to what that rig will be

Isn't the 790x the chipset that supports CrossfireX? That's going be amazing when ATI releases there new card with 2 chips on one card. 8 chips!
