Good for a budget build?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I'm only keeping the case from my old rig which is a CM690. Everything else, I'm selling to a friend for around 500. I plan on spending 500-600 for a great computer that'll be able to upgrade in the future. This is what I have in mind so far

Getting a 4850 from FS section.

instead of a open box get a brand new mobo like the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P or UD3R.

Another option may be to go with a board with the P45 chipset, and go with the 4830, with an option to add a second one for crossfire.

At the price range GPU your looking at you might benefit from switching to a P45 board and ATi video card. The Biostar TPower P45 motherboard is champ at overclocking, and you can get a 4830 Video Card for ~$80-100 that will perform comparably to that 9800 GT if not outperforming it.

If you can wrap your budget around it, the Q6600 or E8400 CPUs are great for overclocking and perform at a higher standard than the E7300.

750i, different power supply (750TX).

Also, AS5, not that OCZ crap.

AND, a 4850 is only $25-35 more (you would want a ASUS P5Q Pro if you got a 4850):
