Nice Little Rig?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys, I'm going to get some more money soon from a promotion at my work and was wondering what parts I should use for a nice little Gaming/LAN rig? I plan on making it pretty cheap; $1000 - $1250 Australian. I plan on buying from http://www.pccasegear.com/.

I would like to play most new games on good settings and GTA IV on pretty high settings also.

Any help would be appreciated! thumb.gif

Stick your current rig in a mATX case with a new mobo and be done with it? lol


I know I know you love your littledevil case, but if you really need a portable rig it's hard to justify building a whole new rig when the only thing you need to make your current one portable is a smaller case and mobo.

I'd agree with you, but.... lol.

I'm moving to Europe and I'm going to assemble a little rig, when I get there; and then I'll ship it over. When I get around to it. xD

By the way, I'm not building a mATX rig; I'm probably building it in a BitFenix Shinobi.

Water Cooled I envy you living in Melbourne. I love PCCASEGEAR and would be there every day if I did live there however I need to factor in courier costs when I order.
