Need at MAX $600 build

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I need a $600 build, I already want these parts:

2x GTX 460 ($200)
AMD Phenom II x4. ($120)


SO I need support for SLI and a good PSU and such. If you can, try to make it as cheap as possible without sacrificing quality. Thanks!

No, about 300 for the rest.

You are not going to be able to get a SLI setup for under $600 unless you steal the parts. In this price range you're looking at something more like a GTS 450 and i3 2100.

You got a pretty good deal for the earlier parts. Unfortunately, $300 for the rest is quite tough if you want to get compatible parts. Give me a moment to see if this is actually possible...

:C. But I'm already getting an SLI deal for 200, and then AMD Phenom for 120, so I don't see how I cant afford an SLI setup. Maybe around 100 for a motherboard, 40 for a case, 25 for RAM, and 60 for PSU.

If I have to, I'll lower down the CPU for more affordability.

You can also take as much time you want to find the parts, I'm not in a hurry as I am not buying right at the moment. Thanks for any help!

2x GTX 460 + Phenom II x4 would be bottlenecking very hard. Just one GTX460 would be good imo.

It's possible.

ASRock 970 Extreme4 SLI ready AM3+ - $115 shipped [Superbiiz]
FALLSALE coupon - $5 off [Superbiiz]
Rosewill RG630 + Rosewill Challenger - $100 shipped both [Newegg]
2x2GB G.Skill NQ DDR3-1600 - $28 shipped [Newegg]
Coolermaster Hyper 212+ - $23 shipped [NCIX]
Seagate 7200.12 1TB HDD - $50 shipped [NCIX]
Use NEWCUSTOMER10 promo on Newegg, ideally with creation of new account, to get $10 off; OR 7200.12 500GB HDD for $30 shipped if you can't use code NEWCUSTOMER10, to keep it within or at $300 budget.

Total cost: $291-$301

Not compatible nor safe to run due to the 3+1 phase. Also, no SLI support. That OCZ 550W is over-rated and will not run both cards.

Well its possible if you already have Windows, don't mind getting open box, and dont need an optical drive
