Budget System... - Page 2

post #11 of 30
CPU 3600X2: $70 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103760

RAM Corsair Value DDR2-667 (No need for high frequency like ddr2-800 because of high multi on AMD cpus.): $59
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145098

GPU 8800GTS: $269
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133193

Mobo: I forget the motherboard chozart always recommends but its about $80.

Obviosuly these are US prices and they dont include VAT but I think you should go this way as long as the PSU can handle it.

LOL! So helpful! Give Chozart a link to here and perhaps he'll enlighten us.

AMD certainly seems cheaper, but aren't they less overclock-able?

FYI he wants to really not spend any more than 400GBP which = 790USD at the moment, but at the moment he only really needs the guts (cpu, mobo, ram & vga).

My friend plays a Final Fantasy XI a LOT... as long as it plays that and the Battlefield games, he'll be happy as larry.

Thanks for all the hints so far guys.

I would get this if you go for Intel (you said you wanted a Conroe, but you picked an Allandale )


Net Total £251.27
Carriage £4.99
V.A.T. £44.85
TOTAL £301.11

Add the GEIL RAM you picked yourself, and you're all set.

I'm open to ideas and suggestions

As I stated, my mate isn't a performance junkie like I am... if it runs the games he wants to play he's a happy panda
