Staying Green/red.

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well I found a buyer for my sig rig and I was going to build a C2D/crossfire setup to find the only crossfire boards for 775 are about $230.

So I decided to stay AMD/ATi for now

So far i'm looking at a 6000 + (Still in question) Asus M2A-MVP and 2gb of XMS2 and HD2600XT Crossfire.

But the problem is, added all together I end up with $90 of tax with newegg, I need a store to buy it all at without the outrages tax fees

here's the list so far...

CPU
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...u=CP1-AM2-5600
Motherboard
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=A455-2354
Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145015
Video is still in question.. found this site but I don't know if it's the right kind if card, I want the full size red one.

If you know of any good AM2 motherboards under $100 with crossfire let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Why not Intel/Nvidia? Theres plenty of people selling p5n32-ESLI's on here. Anyways, why pay tax, you're not in California. Not that I'm suggesting anything

I'm done with nvidia and their drivers. I have to install a new driver to play every damn game and the new drivers break the old games.

Around $100-$130 range is fine.

And I want something with a stock clock high enough to where I don't have to overclock

Newegg is great, but I also dislike all the tax we have to pay. They had to put a plant in Memphis...

I use ZipZoomFly for the most part. They tend to have great deal with "free" shipping all the time, and with no tax to us Tennesseans. Other great places for other things with no tax to us are FrozenCPU, and Performance-PCs.

CPU link-------89.00
Mobo link-----148.00
RAM link-------89.90
Video...no idea

Not sure about the video card, so can't help you there. Hope it helps!

No problem, my good sir! I'm in the same boat as you, when it comes to taxes. I was charged $92.50 tax on my 37" Westy from Newegg. I decided it was worth it, but GOSH!! It smacks the crap out of your wallet when you upgrade!

ZZF is great, IMO. They pretty much always have great deals with no tax/shipping added to the bill.
