Need more help for yet another rig!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I made my first rig with all the great help from here, so why not try again?

I want a second rig, but a lot cheaper, as cheap as I can get with GTX 580 SLi.

Post your rig suggestions if you would like.

Thanks in advance!

I want one as cheap as it can get, I don't expect it to be dirt cheap of course it's going to be around 2,500-3,000$ and I'm prepared for that.

My last setup was a GTX 580 Sli setup for around 4,500 because of the monitors i decided to take, any cheaper then that is a success for me.

I think the only thing i would change around is take a i7-2600k instead of the 2500k, just about the same price and a slight higher performance with the 2600k.

If you are gaming...there is no need for i7-2600k.

Also if you want to lower the price... you can get a quality 650 watt psu and a GTX 590 instead of GTX 580 SLI.... as the performance is pretty much the same..with the SLI you get like 15% better performance which is not that important when most of the games play at 60+ fps at 1920x1200 already with the GTX 590. You save around $350-360.
