It's suggest me a computer day!

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Ok folks, its time to suggest parts for my new pc that I'm getting for graduation. My dad promised me one hell of a computer, and by god I'll have one

SO, here's me budget : 2000 at most, I really don't want to make him spend that much, but I might be able to get him to go as high as that, so stay around 1400 to 1500 at least... maybe more for the monitor...and stuff, I'm lookin at a whole system. and I put it in the amd section, since I game and you guys will most likely recommend amd.

Oh, and if you would, give me links to stuff thanks everyone

This stuff is in order of listing on newegg

Hard drive, 300GB 7200RPM 16Mb cache

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144421

RAM, OCZ EL Gold DDR500, these are 512MB sticks so get 2 if you want 1 GIG or get 4 for 2GB of ram, 512 sticks are the best for overclocking...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227205

Motherboard, DFI LanParty UT SLI-D

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136158

Power Supply, OCZ PowerStream 520W SLI Certified

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817711002

Processor, AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103562

Video Card, XFX 7800GTX Overclocked (490/1300, stock is 430/1200)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150105

Monitor, I have the VP191b Viewsonic but here are the 19in and 17in versions of this (VP191b and VP171b) take your pic.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116347
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116277

If you haven't noticed, everything in this is SLI certified and I got a dual core CPU for maximum future proofing, also that PSU is more power than you will need, all you need now is a CD drive and case of your choice and ofcourse speakers, keyboard and mouse unless you have them.

Total is about $1300 without the monitor and with only 1 stick of ram, if you wanted 1GB of ram it would be about 1400 and 1500 with 2GB of ram. If you need it cheaper the first thing I would drop is that video card LOL! This is the BEST 7800GTX, you could get a cheaper GTX, a 7800GT or even an X850XT, some of those are under $300 now!

lol that's awesome thanks man, I thought about getting 2 80gb seagate barracudas, and putting them in raid 0, instead of having one hard drive, have 2 acting as one super fast

I also thought about getting an opteron, are they necessarily good for gaming? I hear they are awesome overclockers, can anyone fill me in on em?

just a reccommendation for all of this. while having a lot of high performance stuff is nice, being in college myself, i would almost have preferred to put all of it in a small micro atx case. i have my stacker in my dorm sitting on my desk. it has given me several problems... A) Its firckin ::huge:: B) the watercooling and fans make it quite noisy, enough so that i turn it off at night.

i have sworn that my next rig will be micro atx, so it will be small, but powerful. definitely air cooling next time. so for my reccommendation, i reccommend:

micro atx case
micro atx mobo, skt 939
2x 74gb WD raptors
1 gb OCZ ram, or 2gb if you have the budget
AMD 3700 sandiego. or if you want a good chip for almost nothing, 3000/3200 venice
7800 video card, gt or gtx depending on the $ (ive been ati for life, this hurts me )
and on newegg, find the fujiplus 19" monitor, it blows away all competition, and you cant beat the $200 tag

sorry for no links, but thats just off the top of my head. another down point of college: tests, which is why i cant find everything on newegg good luck!!

Why not go with a Opertron 148 or 150 if you are going to OC and game?

Ch13f121, the RAID 0 idea is pretty good, However, if you want single drive then the drive I listed is THE BEST you can get, forget the Raptor. Plus its 300GB for $121, something to consider. Also I would definitely reccomend 2GB of ram, you will really benefit especially if you like BF2 or CoD2, as those games are really RAM hungry. Since you have a 9600, even a X850XT would be a huge performance jump so like I said, if you end up over budget, then drop the video card to a 7800GT or X850XT since they are alot cheaper and not TOO much slower. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136063 This is the CD drive I have, it reads and burns any type of CD or DVD at pretty fast speeds and is very quiet, really good price too. All that is left is the case which is just personal preference, even if the case comes with a PSU, definitely get the OCZ I linked to since PSUs that come in cases ALWAYS suck. Good luck and post back if you have any questions


EDIT/// The Sapphire GTO2 is a very good idea, I forgot about them but now I believe they are down to $230 or something, so yeah they are great cards and guaranteed to unlock and overclock to X850XTPE speeds.
