Budget system - Page 2

post #11 of 16


Here is something I just did real quick. This gives you an AM3 mobo, DDR3 ram, quad core (not phenom but this is budget so dont matter) and leaves some room for aftermarket cpu cooling or optical drive of your choice. You can also get cheaper 5770, dont know why I grabbed the sapphire (probably cause I don't like XFX).

Thats a nice build, ill keep that in mind. But is the antec PSU gonna last for a while? My old antec dided in one year and a half :/ And for the cause Ill get the NZXT M59 Case looks nice and cheap.

if you want a good/cheap case consider the Rosewill Destroyer, it also combos with a 650w and an 850w rosewill PSU (new lines, not the old ones, got rave reviews (at least the 850 did))



i wouldnt get a vapor-x 5770 either, the $150 powercooler is $25 cheaper and has the same core clocks as a XfX XXX edition @ $175


Edit: and antec psus are fine, if you had one die you got unlucky

I don't know about the powercooler, i'd get a sapphire over them if they were close to the same cost. (I saved $20 going ECS from EVGA and this 8800 gts 512 won't OC worth a crap, I wish I had a EVGA g92)

I personally would get for COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply - Retail $30 after MIR:

A Centurion 5 is only $50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119047

I would also get a AII x 4 620 for $99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6&Tpk=x4%20620

BIOSTAR TA790GXB3 AM3 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138163

Anymore on newegg you have to pay attention to shipping costs as it can easily add an extra $50-75 to your build if you don't pay attention anymore. Everything I linked has free shipping (not intentional but easier to know what you'll be paying counting S&H)

IMO, the best cheap case on the market is the NZXT Beta Evo Classic.
