New Build Ideas
On a strict budget with no job. Got some money for my birthday and I would like to dedicate my laptop for ONLY school. No more games, junk, movies, etc on it.
I can afford around $500 for a new build.
I will not be needing a case, HDD, OS or GPU(S).
Will buy a power supply from Best Buy unless I can find one on Newegg for around $50 that is a reputable brand. Need around 500 watts to be safe.
I have 1 3870 and 2 9600GT's I can use in SLI/single. I will mostly be playing World Of Warcraft. It's not a big deal for me to have the best GPU right now. Will most probably be throwing in a little counter strike source here and there. Will upgrade GPU down the line.
AMD x6 build. Just really need a CPU, mainboard and RAM. Should be doable for around $450, right? Don't worry about getting an SLI capable board. I can always just use one card.
I have a 750i SLI FTW laying around. Why not pick up a cheap Core 2 Quad and throw it in there? Should last a while for just playing basic games. I still would like to believe that the C2Q series are still more than capable for many things.
