whats the budget for this build??
post #4 of 12
600 bucks, he stated that in the first post.

Im not sure about the PSU. The motherboards look good... how is that monitor such a low price?!?

U could do better with intel for that budget...I'm not an intel fanboy...but I am a performance fanboy

I agree with SerenityKill3r. I am no Intel fan boy but go with them just this once. You will thank yourself in the future. Consider this, with a C2D at 3.2Ghz my CPU utilization shoots up to 60% on both cores when playing demanding games. In the future would the 5400+ be able to keep up?

Go for an E7200 in my opinion and mate it with a P35-DS3L and you should be on your way to a monster gaming build.

Not a bad budget build but I would suggest spending an extra $40 more bucks and getting yourself a 4GB kit so that you can have Dual Channel enabled.

Wouldn't an 790FX mobo and an ATI card be better aswell? :/ If you are going AMD might aswell go full AMD and get a spider!

I mean for the price of the 9600 u can get a 3870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Radeon+HD+3870

All those suggestions sound awesome but again I really need a 22 inch. So out of that 600, 200 for the LCD which leaves 400 for the rig itself other then the LCD. Thats the reason why I went with AMD. And the reason for not going Intel is that only way you can pull massive performance from intel is overclocking and my friend doesn't know how to OC or anything. AMD comes clocked high @ stock speeds and alot cheaper.
