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

I wouldn't be able to afford that stuff right now. I was just looking for your guyes opinion on what I should get. I can always get a cheap ATX case but I would like to stay small.

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
It will be cheaper. Unless the C2D build is used. Here in Denmark the prices are high. But I can get CPU, Mobo and RAM for $562 that includes an MSI board with 8+2 Phase Power design and 8x8x SLI/CFX + i5-2500k + 4 Gb. G.Skill RipJawsX 1600 Mhz. CL9. I bet OP can get it cheaper where he's from.

It pushes $1000 here if I should get a brand new LGA775 setup.

Then wait for AM3+. I think it's gonna be killer price/performance, and the 990FX/GX/X boards all support SLI

ah gotcha ya you guys have a bit of a mark up over there and I agree if he buys new itll will cost a ton. I would not buy a 775 setup new now.

and Op for what you want to do a used c2d set up will be the cheapest you can go right now although a dual core amd set up would work to. If your not buying now then wait a bit longer for the new launches not only will prices go down but the market will have alot of used stuff up with people upgrading

What you need is a good p-45 775 motherboard.The thing is you could probably buy a new amd board instead for the used p-45 price.Honestly amd would be the way too go to do it cheaply,until you can afford to move to the newest sandy bridge platform.

So I just got a PS3 case and I was thinking about getting a M-ITX board with a core 2 duo and only have one 9800GT. Or I could get a P55 MATX SLI board with 4 GB ram and an i3 550 for the same price.
