help me build some FOLDING/GAMING rigs:

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Okay so I think we can all agree that folding is an important thing right now. It benefits the whole of humanity and its rather rewarding.

However, my rig is retarded stupid to fold with. For several reasons. And my Fiance's is too weak for any folding.

So I am going to build a folder soon.

First off though I need to raise some funds for my new rig. This is where you guys come in =) I could go the sponsor route and beg, borrow, and steal from the rich but last night over a few too many beers I got an idear. . cheers.gif


STEP 1:
I am going to order what you guys all recommend as good parts off amazon (I have an account with them)


STEP 2:
Build the rigs in my new computer building room with gloves and proper grounding


STEP 3:
Overclock, Test, Re-Test until we are all satisfied we are stable


STEP 4:
Install student specific software that I get a deal on


STEP 4:
Mark them up a measly 10-15% for struggling students like myself

For all the naysayers out there I HAVE built about a dozen rigs in the last two months for friends and family. I have been charging some a small fee. This is totally possible. I am just saying this for all the negative nancy's and naysayers out there. AKA Trolls and ****. I have actually been able to rat-hole about a grand for my wedding doing this. But of course the wedding money is UNTOUCHABLE LOL. Trust me, I have asked to borrow it hehe.



Please help me build some AMD rigs for students who like to play wow, bf3@60fps, watch pron in 1080p tonguesmiley.gif and whatever else students do.


I have to use amazon.com as I have an account with them. And lets keep it AMD/ATI thumb.gif

I am going to be building three different AMD pc's:

Right now I am going to build a $880 rig for gaming purposes and a $440ish rig for light gaming.




Thank you guys so awfully much and please just be sure and to keep your posts clean and I promise I will keep the thread clean and organized as well. Everyone have an awesome day!

I think you are confused sir, I am not talking asking about folding rigs LOL. I am asking about rigs that I can SELL in order to fund the building of a folding rig wink.gif

Thank you sir, this is great bang for the buck. Just got quite a few emails though and it looks as though a couple guys want me to build them some expensive Intel rigs. And a fellow student wants me to build him a $500 gaming rig for SWTOR. Any help with that would be appreciated I am buried with homework and wedding stuff right now so not really able to research everything I want to but will get to everything asap.

I love this forum =)
