post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have 400 bucks to burn, I like to do a new build, it will take some time, but where should I start? Any suggestions. I thought about buyin off CL but, i thinkin I'd rather go new,and have some pride in my own build.

I think you should wait until you get some more money together. The performance per price doesn't really begin to scale until you hit about 700 or 800.

I think that if it is for gaming $400 is gonna be tough. If you're looking to get a HTPC/Basic workstation that can do light gaming, I would go with this list which includes rebates into the total:

any decently equipped MicroATX mobo around $60
Core i3 2100 $125
500GB drive $40
4 GB RAM could go with lower height...($35)
DVD Drive ($19)
Windows 7 HP x64 (if you need an OS disk) ($95...was $80 with promo: EMCKCJE83....expires today)
CASE ($40 with rebate)
PSU ($45 w/ rebate....code:EMCKCJE26.... expires today)

Total with win7: $444 (without...$364) That way you could save like $50 bucks or so and get a decent GPU)

A good base? And the over time go from there? Any other suggestion?

......

by the time you complete that build, expect Sandy Bridge to be well on it's way out of the door. You don't get to test your hardware either, and DOAs would be a pain, not even considering the warranty time you wasted from time of purchase.


Save your money and buy everything at one time gets my vote.
