Need Help Building New Gaming Rig. $2100 Budget

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys..

I need help building a top of the line gaming rig. I have $2100 in my budget.

Few guidelines..

1. Has to be AMD 64FX

2. 2GB of memory

3. Want at least 1 7800GT or GTX or possibly 2

4. I already have the monitor,mouse,and keyboard,and speakers so you dont have to include those in the prices..

thanks

AMD doesn't support DDR2 yet.

DDR2 does not exist in AMD platforms.

I would go with:
FX-55 - Ebay for $600-$700 or newegg for $800
DFI NF4 SLI-DR - $200 from newegg
Silverstone Strider 600W PSU - $170 from Newegg
OCZ Plat. 2GB(1GBx2) - $200
XFX 7800GTX - $470

There are some of the main components, still need cooling, case, etc, but that should give you a start.

for that price I'd say get a Opteron 148 (230$ish), DFI SLI DR Expert(again probably around 200$), 2gig (1gig x2) of tccd ram (150$), Antec truepower 2 or Seasonic S12 (110$) case: you choose (100-200$) HDD: 2x raptor 74gb (300$) Video Card: 7800GTX 256mb for 400$... then spend the rest on good water or phase change
