Building $400 Computer - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Yes I too would drop the SLI motherboard and just look at a DFI or EPOX or the CHAINTECH for a cheap option. Just look for nForce4 Ultra chipset and you should be good.

2 X 512Mb RAM would be wise..this..G.SKILL 2 x 512Mb 2-3-3-6 PC3200 is good cheap RAM at $102.00

cheers

Motherboard DFI Lanparty UT nF4 ULTRA-D..here..$125.00

If you can stretch to $500 you will get it all in with a good PSU to boot and a reasonable case.

Don't know how tight your $400 target is so forget your shipping costs.
