$600US gaming rig...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, my friend wants me to make a rig for him.

This is what I have concocted:

Althon64 3200+
Generic PC4200 2 x 512
M2N4-SLI
Case
Ati X1900XT 256

coming to...$790 AUD.

He only wants it for gaming (ie. Oblivion).

Any ideas?

Your own rig, but with a X1900XT or 7900GTO.

Prices seem a little worse in Aus then here...

What website you plan to buy from?

And is he a guy who upgrades a lot? or just a rig for a long time?

get a better processor maybe a 3500 as it overclocks well if needed. If you can afford it get an X2, everything else seems good.
