$500 Build, What to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 36
a serious suggestion, your friend would benefit SO much by saving ~$75-$100 more. he could get a 5770, and a better CPU like an E7x00 series. (if you go intel)

I've used it before in a different friend's build and it's powering a HD4850 + Q6700 quite well.



Says 3.5", but I agree, it looks like a mobile hard drive in the picture.
If you can get a $29 psu that you trust I say go for it then you can upgrade the graphics to a 1gb 4870 or maybe even a 4890

PSU

RAM

HDD

CPU

MOBO

i got everything minus the PSU as a package deal from newegg, saved 50 bucks total, ill try to find the link for you, but i think with case my build was about 370 total, so that still leaves you for a nice GPU if you dont want to do on board graphics

And yes, I am a Washingtonian. Down here in Bonney Lake.

It's a 3.5" drive. It's the same size as my 500GB 7200.12. They are just thinner drives because they're single platter. They take up less space and produce less heat. The 500GB 7200.12 is also $54.99 on the egg at the moment.

What about an optical drive and power supply?

Also that motherboard uses DDR3 and you linked DDR2.

Again you forget that the motherboard uses DDR3 and you linked DDR2.

Here's what I got. I don't think the CPU will bottleneck the vidcard. Very good hard drive, RAM has tight timings, and the power supply is a Corsair.
