Thread Starter 
Ok So I have these two options, I wanna buy a cell phone of 300 dollars and I use it often but my computer sucks allot, so we are near xmas, I have 200 dls, In xmas I will get like 400 dollars, In total it will be like 600 dollars, so here is the deal, I wanna buy the god d*** cellphone for social life but I USE the computer more often ( lets say that the computer is a 80% of my life ), I wanna upgrade my comuter so here is what Im going to upgrade and you guys tell me

First of it:

A Xion case, XION Onyx currently I have a standard one
A new mobo, ABIT AN8 32X Nvidia nForce 4 SLI x16 currently I have an ASRock AGP
New memory, G.Skill 1 gb DDR currently I have 1.21 gb
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 2.4 ghz, currently I have an Intel Celeron 2.6 ghz
Now last, an GeForce 7600 GT SLI support, currently I have onboard video card ( UniChrome )

So what you guys say!

dont buy a $300.00 cell phone...Thats just not smart at all. Even people that have cool phones dont use all the cool stuff on them that much. I only use my camera phone sometimes and i would rather use my 7.1 megapixals camera so its kinda a waste. Now onto the computer. I would say if you have 600 bucks get a dual core processor. Opteron, 3800+, 4400+ something like that. 165 Opteron http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103588
and there are alot of mobo's to look at. That mobo seems to be good. As for memory, Look at corsiar xms or the ocz since you have about 200 bucks left over.

Buy a cheap cell phone, they all work the same. You can pick up a cell phone for less than 50 dollars.

1st recommendation. Case should be fine but the motherboard could be better. Go with the DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D....much better board.

2nd recomendation. Good memory, cant go wrong with gskill. You may want to think of some TCCD memory or even Mushkin redline.

3rd recomendation. If you are going with a single core AMD, buy the 3800+ Venice core, it overclocks VERY well. IMO I would go with a dual core AMD like a X2 4200+ (Also overclocks very well)

4th recomendation. If you have to go with a 7 series nvidia, go with a lower end 7900 and overclock it to GTX speeds. Otherwise hold your video card money until DX10 cards become more established.


I think you can acquire all of this for around 600-700 dollars. good luck

The SLVR is a good phone and it's cheap now, and it has iTunes on it. That's what I got, and it's great. I love it. It used to be like $200 but now it's only like $80 or something.

Then upgrade your comp

Don't bump your threads, and don't double post (I can't really say anything because I've done it before, but only once )

If I were you I'd go with a AM2 build...

You would get a lot out of a S939 build that had a San Diego, Venice, or Opty... but I'd go for at least a Opty \\ X2 for a 939 build

For an AM2 build you can get a X2 (reccommend waiting for the 65nm version), I'm not sure how good the Optys are for AM2 though...
