Help me update rig!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Let's say budget $600-$800
Only need MB, Mem, CPU, and SSD.(maybe another monitor see below)
I have a 5870 as a GPU and 22" LCD(might pickup another).
I like OCing but not hardcore levels.
Gaming rig.

I've looked for a while but would like suggestions on MB Mem combinations. Thanks!

The higher end of that budget might allow for a 2500K, p67 motherboard, 120gb ssd, and 8gb of 1600/1866mhz ram.

And in 6 months or w/e it takes for AMD to get their 7000series to market and you to save up enough $$, you can toss a new GPU in.

For ~$600 you should be able to get a decent P67/Z68 motherboard, a 2500K, 8GB of RAM, and another monitor.

I guess I forgot the SSD part. I would just get one of the less expensive 64GB models and a 1TB HDD. That should keep you within your budget.

Near Dallas or Houston? Microcenter in each. Check Directron.com for some things to see if you can get cheaper, Directron is in Houston.

Don't know if it's that much difference once tax and driving there is added.
