Super-Budget AMD Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm in the process of setting up my own business building PC's, which I am currently pumping all of my spare cash into. I had to sell my main rig to help my dad when my mother passed away a few months ago so now I just wanna build a quick and cheap rig to tide me over through my cash flow problems.

I plan to buy most of the parts second hand, hopefully on OCN.

Parts:

AMD 5000+ X2 Socket AM2 (Or Similar) (Maybe BE if cheap enough?)
AM2 Mobo (Doesn't have to be an extreme ocer) (Sli/Xfire?)
2x1GB DDR2-6400 (Any brand)
8600GT or better/2600XT or better
160GB SATA HDD or better
DVD Writer SATA


What you guys think?? I really don't have alot of money, between the business, college and helping my dad, I can't afford great components. Would you guys make any suggestions??

Thanks a million guys,

Chris

For a super low budget, would integrated graphics (780G) be an option?

This is a more gaming orientated build, and I mainly play Source games and Guild Wars so an 8600GT would suffice, I will probably upgrade that to a low end 4 series AMD once I can get enough cash
