Default Re: OKay

I checked CompUSA's site and their selections are too limited. Maybe for the core, get something like this:

Super Lanboy Aluminum Super Mini Tower Case
http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...199&pfp=BROWSE

Athlon 64 3200+, 2.00 GHz, 2.0 GHz FSB, Socket 939 Processor-In-A-Box
http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...524&pfp=BROWSE

nForce4 Ultra ATX Socket 939 Motherboard for AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX
http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...638&pfp=BROWSE

HyperX 1GB PC3200 184pin 2-3-2-6-1 CL2 DDR DIMM Memory Module Kit
http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...082&pfp=BROWSE
Their prices are high too. You can get some of these on Newegg or other sites for a lower price. Plus, their selections are limited.

Yeah, some of those suggestions above are ok, due to CompUSA's limitations. They only carry so much PC parts. The idea of buying a comlete system is another good idea and just get a new video card to replace the one they have in there. Most systems use integrated graphics there.

Now if you go on Newegg, they have more selections with cheaper pricing. I know one of these chipsets allow full 16x bandwidth for SLi video, but forgot chip one. I think it's the nForce 590 chipset that does that? BUt it's going to cost you a pretty penny.

G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail

MSI K9N SLI Platinum Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130048

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Orleans 2000MHz HT 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103637

eVGA 256-P2-N553-AX Geforce 7600GT CO 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130283

Lol, it's almost the same like the one I posted for BadNinja. Those specs will let you play ANY games. Hell, it's better than what I got and I can play all games!!!

Go to newegg and design it, considering how long you been about i'm sure you know what to look for.
