First Budget Build - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
I changed it a little...

instead of the 8600gt, I'm going to get the MSI GeForce 8600GTS 256MB GDDR3 and the 3600+ Brisbane instead of the 4600+. I heard that when that gets overclocked, its a much better value. Is that ture?

$800 is just the budget for now, I'm planning on getting more money for another video card down the road.

One more question:
Whats the difference between these 3 mobo's in relation to ports, OCing ability, etc.?
MSI K9N4 SLI-F Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI
BIOSTAR TForce TF570SLI Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI
GIGABYTE GA-M55SLI-S4 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
Thanks again.

Yes, the 3600+ Brisbane will offer you more bang for the buck since it can be oc'ed to 3GHZ with a good cooler. Why don't you get the build I made for you? Just switch the cpu and mobo with the 3600+ and an AM2 mobo. The 8800GTS will allow you to run any game at the highest settings...with the exception that you don't run them on super high-res. I'll edit the build for you.

It's too much money and XP is fine for what I need right now.

Drop SLI, and get a Tforce 550. Go for an 8800GTS 320MB, and go for some G.Skills.

There's still some stuff missing, just add in what you might need. Speakers, OS, Case, ect...

Edit: It might be a good idea to start out with Ubuntu as your OS, and get a better system, until you can get Windows.

Ubuntu Studio is really good, and includes ALOT of added programs free of charge.
