I just bought myself a Socket 939 San Diego 3700+ for 20 bucks, so I plan on using it to it's fullest. I am upgrading from a 2.8 P4.
I am trying to keep it under $200 for the upgrade, but I can't find a great video card for gaming and keep the budget under $200 shipped.
Here's what I've got so far...
P4 2.8 w/ HT
1gb Corsair XMS Platinum
6800GS 256mb/256bit AGP8x
160gb IDE HDD
8x DVD Burner/16x DVD Reader
350 Watt Antec True Power Trio
Now, my thinking behind this is to get this motherboard:
And this Video Card:
But, this is where I am stuck.
I want a SFF case.
Do I get a cheapo 40 buck one, with no power supply? If so, which one.
Or, do I ditch the expensive video card, and get a cheaper one, and a SFF case with a power supply on it?
I also have a best buy $40 gift card I can use, if there is any reason to go there...
