Wanting to build a cheap Core 2 Duo and SLI 9800GT's Please Help

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my parents are splitting up and I want to make a small MATX form factor Core 2 Duo comp for SLI'ing 9800GT's or 8800GT's. I have a power supply, case, DVD, and HDD.

If you guys could maybe build up a small board, CPU, and RAM setup that would be great because I really do not want to go with the "I" series processors. Thanks a ton InerTia*

Honestly I would look on the For Sale section on here there are quite a few people getting rid of 775 C2D and boards. I think I saw someone with the whole package selling a while back. If you buy new now your going to pay a premium for the older tech.

heres a guy that has an sli board an a c2d and memory for decent prices. $180 for the C2D sli board and 4gb of Dominator memory. If I needed more than the memory id jump on it lol

Im sure there is more thats just what I saw right off the bat just look around.

I would be cheaper to do an i5-2500k build or AMD rather than spending it on old hardware. Especially if you're gonna use SLI.

And I was also thinking about getting an i3 or an i5 1156 with an EVGA P55v Micro. Sounds good?

If you wait just and save a little while, you could get an AMD 990FX/GX/X setup and an AM3+ CPU

There is no way an i5-2500k build will be cheaper than a c2d sli build not in this life time man sorry.

*edit* before we all start bickering about what will be better OP what is your price range lol

Yah I am kinda loosing hope in the whole 775 SLI board... I also do not want to run something way expensive and have my system held back from graphics. I just want a cheap build to SLI, Play COD4, and WoW.

again how cheap? lol if thats all you realy want it for check out the link in my first post $180 for c2d and 4gb of memory and an sli board (not matx tho) I actually dont know if they made 775 sli matx boards?? If thats all the gaimg your going to do that would be fine with sli 9800s and you can always upgrade to a quad core later
