What part choices for a $1500 build?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So I am going to sell my sig rig for $2000, and I am wondering what parts I should get for a $1500 build.

I was thinking Intel, because u kno...

but AMD is good too.

Not sure on the GPU(s) but I'd like to stick with DX9 for now and get a DX10 card later.

2gb RAM is a must, 4gb preferred.

Don't need too much HDD space, my 160gb did just fine and I had plenty of room left.



Thanks!

Oh, I would like it to be quiet too. The TT fan and the HD 2900 XT fan was pretty loud.

Gigabyte P35 DS3R
Ballistix
OCZ 700w
eVGA 8800GTS 640MB
Thermaltake Armor (Black)
Western Digital 250GB

I don't know if you'd like to go with the GTS 640MB again.

Thanks!

I think I'm going to go with the DQ6 version though... and a corsair PSU.

Sounds even better! Corsair, excellent PSU makers.
