C2D Build: $650

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I have my mind set on a few select parts, and I can't seem to talk myself out of any of them. Which wouldn't be bad, if they all weren't over $200 a piece.

I wanted a 1680x1050 monitor, but I cant make a decent enough system with that chunk of money out of it. I don't to go anything lower than that, its either what I got or 1680x1050. (Can't talk me out that one. )

I wanted a X1950Pro. To power the monitor. But these two alone are near $550.

Wanted the Asus P5W Deluxe mobo because of crossfire. I do *NOT* want to go Nvidia anymore - so SLI would be stupid. But, since its 975 and not 965, to get the minimum of 3.2Ghz OC I want on the C2D, I'd need to get an E6600 to touch that.

So yeah. Just post what you would get. Then "argue" with me why you'd get this vs this, then have some free punch, "argue" some more, one of us either gives in or see's that the other is a genius, get some pie, wash, rinse, repeat.

Just on a less harsh scale.

E6300, Gigabyte S3, decent 667 RAM.


You CANNOT have a good build with a 20" WS for $650, Pook... it just ain't happening.

Yea, just save up for a bit longer. That way you won't have to settle for any less. If you waited this long I'm sure you can wait longer. Just think of the holiday sells.

Most of that is from selling the rig in my system specs.

$150 is not nearly enough to convert to DDR2 + a good mobo. Mind as well sell it and start over.

Save up a bit. 200 dollar mother board. Not sure how much the screen is. Around 300? Processor around 300. So 150 more? Do you have the ram and psu already?

...Read the topic again.

I'm asking you/anyone else to do what you would do with $650 - sans the video card.

And I already said I wouldn't have enough in the original post for everything I wanted.
