AMD Budget Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Money spent would be $300.40 CAD.

Biostar Tforce 550 SE - Chosen for it's good overclocking ability - $89.04
Sparkle Power SPI ATX-400PN 400W - Good name, decent amount of watts, good price - $35.10
ASUS TA-863 - Really light case, cheap price, decent ventilation - $29.38
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane - We all know why - $68.88
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2x1gb - 2gb set of ram, decent overclocking, all I need for the 3600+ - $78.00

Total: $300.40 CAD

Plan on saving up and picking up a used 8800GTS for this build from the forums sometimes.

Any suggestions I would prefer to come from www.directcanada.com as that's where I'm ordering from.

I've heard that they aren't the best, but still aren't bad.

I'm in Ontario and yeah, it's nice, but no SLI.

I've found DirectCanada to be basically the best for prices in all of Canada.

By the way, changed my build a bit.
