Recomend me a Computer that plays CSS well. - Page 2

post #11 of 28
OK, here's what I came up with. If it's too much money, let me know:

CPU: Brisbane 3600+: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103046
Mobo: ASUS M2N-E: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131022
RAM: 2 GB Geil DDR2 800: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144047
Video Card: eVGA 7600GT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062
Power Supply: Thermaltake 500W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153052
Case: Cooler Master Centurion: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119106
HDD: 160 GB Wester Digital Caviar: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144415
Optical: Lite On SATA Combo Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106040

Total Price = $508.92 + $27.93 Shipping = $536.85 - $40 in rebates

Final Price after Rebates = $496.85

I knwo you said you wanted C2D, and I admit C2D is faster, but in the under $1,000 price range, right now, AMD is the better way overall to go. When Intel drops prices, that will probably change, too. But unless you plan on spending $1,000+ on a tower, then AMD is more than likely the better overall route to take.

That comes to a total of $533 with shipping. You can probably pick up a case locally for cheaper than they are on Newegg because of the expensive shipping. I can make you an even cheaper budget gaming system if you are open to AMD.

REALLY FREAKIN CHEAP

MOBO: HERE $25 (C2D support and ddr2 667 support)

CPU: user choice

DDR2: HERE $75

GFX: HERE $270

GRAND TOTAL $370

$330 left over to spend on C2D

not the greatest build, but cheap...and should run CSS on full everything, especially w/ the 7950GT

if you want to splurge more on your cpu, get a cheaper gfx card cuch as the 7600GT which will also run CSS with ease

You can get a x1950xt for $170 and it is more powerful than a 7950GT. Keep in mind guitarcrazy he needs a case, harddrive, and powersupply.

Lol a $25 open box Asrock mobo. Don't touch it with a 10ft. pole.

For the price of that GPU he can get a 8800 gts 320mb after MIR.
---------
If all you need to do is play CSS maxed, a AMD X2 3600 would get the job done, then throw in half decent video card, 2 gigs of ram *1gig would do it fine, but hell, it's cheap atm!* and a decent mobo and your good to go for around $500...

dang, didnt even consider that...well he can use his current case.

and if his PSU supports ATX mobos, thene he can use that too,

the mobo i listed supports IDE hdd's, which im sure his is...nothing a litlle harddrive can't fix
