Not so cheep build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My last build... sucked (as you can see by my sig rig) but ive started looking for parts for a rebuild and I found this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116070

Ok CPU? Or should I just give in and buy something more powerful?

Look at this Guide for suggestions. I would probably start fresh, see if you can sell those parts for something. You could probably keep the PSU and HD.

The E2180 is a better overclocker. So, I'd get that, or just save up for an E7200. It also depends on the GPU you plan to pair it with. The E2180 would be nice with a 9600GT, but if you go 8800GTS 512MB or better, I'd say the E7200 is the right CPU (with the 8800GT in the gray middle area... leaning toward E7200 also for that one)

A lttle off topic and kinda appraising but how much do you think the X800 would go for?

yeah, Im doing a E7200 for another build. It should be a wonderful chip for the money. hope to hit 4GHz on it...
