For $900 I'd get something like a Phenom II 955, AMD 6850, 4 GB RAM, $150 motherboard, Corsair or Seasonic PSU (~600W), and Windows 7 64-bit Home edition (OEM).

Of course, if you need keyboard, mouse, and monitor you might have to cut back on the above hardware a bit.

He wouldn't need a $150 motherboard. my god. You can get an Asus evo for like 100.

For midgrade there are a number of good PSU's.

Silverstone and Coolmaster for example.

Other than that, I like this build. It lacks a case, but that will just be your choosing.

If you can't wait till Mid June for Bulldozer, then get a Phenom II Quad.

I'm creating a wish list on Newegg with stuff I think you may be interested in.

Be back in several minutes

This is a similar to another build I made for another OCN member but I changed it around to Radeon graphics and made it around $900 bucks. This build is really powerful for the price.

MB: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 B3 LGA1155 Part#:MB-P67X4B3 http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?...TX-Motherboard $159 shipped

or if you want to save money and don't need SLI/Crossfire (having 2 graphics cards) ASRock P67 Pro3 B3 LGA1155 Mfr Part Number: P67PRO3 B3 http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?...TX-Motherboard $131.99 shipped (Asrock is part of sub-brand of Asus, they make really good mother boards for cheap)

CPU: Intel 2500K BX80623I52500K you can get this for $180 if you have a microcenter store near you (instore only). If not then its $215 on newegg and superbiiz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-072-_-Product

HD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive, This is the best hard drive on the market. I only order hard drives from newegg because they package their hard drives well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=samsung%20f3

Case: Cooler Master CM 690 II Advance ATX Mid-Tower Case (RC-692-KKN2)

$90 shipped. This is another great case but has no fan controller and is only a mid tower.

PSU: Corsair 650TX v2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-020-_-Product

CPU cooler: Coolermaster 212+ RR-B10-212P-G1 $30
DVD drive: Samsung SH-S222A/BEBE 22X DVDRW Internal Drive (Black), Bulk http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?...ive-Black-Bulk

GPU: HIS H695FN2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-368-_-Product

or if you want to save 90 bucks get the Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 XTREME 1 GB DDR5 100282XTREME which is slower but still very good. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...805&CatId=3669

This way your computer will have the latest and will be future proof for a long while.


Stick with the 6950 for a while as you can upgrade graphic cards easy.

When you do buy a Bulldozer cpu, you'll need an AM3+ motherboard, not an AM3 socket.

You'll have the option of doing 4GB DRR3 or 8 gig DDR3. If you do 4GB (2x2GB you'll be able to still put in 2 more RAM sticks for 4 more gigs in the future, just make sure your motherboard has 4 slots for DDR3. I also recommend 1600 MHz DRR3. Lower the Cas latency the better. You'll want 7 or 8 cas. 7 is much more expensive than 8 though.

The Power supply I showed you will be good for a while, or go ahead and get a Corsair 750TX for future proofing your power supply.

The case is a mid range gaming case, it's cool, simple, and cheap and will allow plenty of room for cards and is great for modding imo
