go for the extra space. even if he doesn't need it he will have it just in case.

speed is nice but inless you know what your looking for you dont really see much from 1066 to 1333 but if your hitting that price cap feel free to ignore what im saying.

however i would get as cloce to that 600 mark as i could with the best parts i can and future proof as much as i can even if its just a few months


im falling asleep here so ignore me if you want to lol i could be WAY off base today. didn't get in till really late last night after a rather long drive (240 miles)

So, the first thing I want to say is big up's to the AMD industry for the 1090T and 1055T. Great prices for a 6-core processor. Also, love the 890FX chipsets with the dual X16 PCI-E lanes!

Next on the agenda...

I'm going to be doing a modest build for a friend of mine. He's converted to Mac for a few year now, but wants a PC Desktop for gaming (at the moment, mainly Starcraft II). I thought I'd share with you guys the parts we are going to use...

FYI, He wanted to keep his budget $500.00 ~ $600.00 but we ended up just under $600.00 with Mail in Rebate.

One item I wanted to highlight is the case we're using. I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, but from the specs/images it's a pretty nice case if you're on a tight budget. Sure, Rosewill isn't a great name.. but I said "Budget". The PSU mount is on the bottom, 120mm on front, rear and top, option for 2x120mm on side panel, full black (interior), tool-less design, and front mesh. Not bad for $49.99, no?

CPU & Motherboard combo:
$213.99
  • AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
  • BIOSTAR 790GX

RAM:

i have the m4a785td-v evo board with the Storm case and a single 5850 card and i was wondering will i be able to get a second for CrossFire? i would be doing the hard drive mod before adding a second to give myself some space, would this upgrade be worth it? or should i just upgrade to a better single card?

I'm thinking I'll either do (4 x 1GB) DDR3 1066 or (2x1GB) DDR3 1333. Of course, the 2x1GB DDR3 1333 would allow him to upgrade to 4GB if he needed, later. Then again, I suppose he doesn't want to have to buy additional parts soon...

@ Clee. First off I'd like to say I'm glad I'm not the only one watching too many Simpsons shows. Every time someone posts "Hi Everybody" I hear Dr. Nick's voice in my head. Hmmm isn't that one of the things they ask for sanity "do you hear voices in your head" or is it "do the voices tell you what to do".

Oh, anyway, I'd really really really really rather have 4G's of DDR3 1033 that you can clock to at least 1333 without a fan than have 2G's of anything at even 2000mhz!! More than once I've done a build (one of ours included) and skimped on the ram amount for faster ram and about died with the hard drive thrashing because Windows, any version, is playing in too little ram and is constantly acessing the hard drive.

On another note. I was like HOLY HANNAH when I thought a Corsair 650 bronze would be cheaper and the EGG is selling it for $109- because it was pick of the year last year. Isn't that price gouging?? I got Mindy's for $59- last Dec.

Oh, did you go to pricegrabber.com and see if any other reputable re-seller had these things for less? Of course taking shipping into accout. I already had a gpu in there but it's easy.

Defintely like the 690 as a case better than any Rosewill. As for the PSU, find out for sure, go here: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp They include a margin of sloppiness for inefficient PSU's. If that isn't spot on for you tell me everything that's going to go in this thing, initially and the future and I'll look it up in "The Book".

Dang I hate when I'm posting and hit the Windows key. I'd disable it but I use it in other things, like Windows.

@ ArmageddonAsh.
No no no, two of any video card (at least those out now) is better than a dual GPU chipset on one board. Especially AMD, why? Because to fit in on one board they have to cut back a little and it's usually in the area of the Vreg. You may get double the Vram but look at the clock speeds on a reference XFX 5870, then an XFX 5970, the clocks on the 5970 are lower and don't expect to be able to overclock it, specifically because of the Vreg problem.
Also 2 cards always seem to run better and for those games that just won't do a dual chip setup, you can always take the bridge out in the Software when you have 2 cards, if that doesn't work you cam pull it physically. You can do it on a dual GPU card but I see all the time people complaining about how much trouble it is and you can't seperate them physically. Finally, if you have say a 5970 with 2Mb Vram and you crossfire it with say a 5850 that comes with 1mb Vram you get knocked to the lowest amount. This isn't a problem unless you use a large monitor or multiple monitors, then it's a big problem.

Oh yeah, if you meant upgrade to a better card as in replace it with a GTX 480, then it's still no, you'll get more bang for your buck with 2 5850's than with a single GTX 480. The only way it comes out better is if you buy 2 GTX 470 or 480's, with that much cash you can just add 2 more 5850's and still beat the pants off the 480's. Did that answer your question?

no i mean like instead of 2 x 5850 go for 1 x 5870 or the 59xx series
which would perform better keeping in mind that lower the cost the better

what cards are there that are actual dual cards in a single slot/case design?
i know there are a few just not too sure what they are
