$1000 gaming rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey my buddy wants to build a rig i told him about mine, but he said he does a little multi tasking and was wondering if he should get a dual core. It's mostly for gaming though, also he prob won't oc it for a while so that really doesn't matter to him (I know it's crazy). But yeah if you guys could help me out that would be super. LOL

Just for ur price information... i just Won a auction on Ebay for a Pentium D 820 for a 146$ !!! and there is more... if he wants a duel core thats hella cheap!

If ur an Nvidia guy...6800GS 179.99

Great thing about this u can go crossfire later on if u need extra performance for games... then he wouldnt have to overclock
Nvidia board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131536

As for ram would go withDual channel DDR2 2x 512 = 1gig total 79.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231017

Hard drive thats really depends on the size... sounds like he doesnt need a Rapt. 10000rpm... just ge aSAta150 decent size
