heh...umm i'm going with the amd of course...that 2k bus is just too hard to pass up...and umm yeah, i think i'm a pass on the r22 refridgerator coolant, or more commonly known as Freon, because it's kind of expensive and they are passing acts and such in hopes of retiring it or so i hear, although i don't install the ac no more sooo i'm not too sure of the reliability of the sources. anyways, i haven't gotten around to building the comp. yet, but plans are set in motion for the weekend after next, soo if any of you want to offer up you're expertise then be my guest...

so far here's what ive got planned out:

- 1 amd w/ 2k bus and 2 ghz, 939 socket, probably not the FX though(two espenisve heh)...
- umm an atx board(don't know much about these, suggestions???)...
- a 256M pci video card with sli, possibly two, haven't decided(let me know if you think i should go with 1 or 2)...
- as for the hard drive i was thinking of getting a 15k rpm w/ 36 gigs for the operating system and then a sata hard drive with 7.2k rpm and 250 gigs(any thoughts on this then be sure to let me know)...
- as far as ram goes i'm thinking either 2 512's or 2 1024's (still not sure though)...but i'm getting at least a gig though...or that's the plan anyways...
- umm don't really know anything much about the sound cards, cept that i'm going to need one probably and their not too espensive...
- i was thinking of getting my stuff from either newegg or tigerdirect, but probably newegg, because i can do more detailed searches there
- as far as cooing goes i'm thinking maybe just doing fans and heatsink, but i really don't know what the heck i'm talking about when it comes to cooling, lest we're talking about house cooling heh, but even then i'm kind of outdated---*hint* *hint*...any advice would be appreciated
- ohh and if you've never built a computer, or don't know what the heck you're talking about then don't waste my time heh...
- no clue as to a case yet...i'm thinking if i get one with a window then i'll probably get some neon lights and some water cooling, and maybe put some food coloring in the water to make it look cooler...
- also not too knowledgable about overclocking, but some buddies of mine are, so maybe if i go with the water cooling then i might do that, or quite possibly with the heat sink and the fans...

BUT umm yeah...i'm thinking 2k max is all i want to spend on the computer though...maybe when i get out of school and pay off my loans i can build a decent computer for about 5k or something heh...or a super awesome one for that heh...but yeah, if you have built computers before and you know exactly what you are talking about then be sure to help me out with any info that you can...and i guess thanx in advance...

P.S.---you can e-mail me at "insainiac01@gmail.com," without the quotes of coures, if you have any suggestions, or if you would just like to look up the best stuff you can find at the cheapest prices and send me the links then that would be greatly appreciated...laterz

Welcome to Overclock.net.
You can get a hella computer for 2 grand.
You got to start with the basics:

Good power supply unit,
Quality motherboard,
Good ram,
Quality PCI-E graphics card,
Good 7200 / 10,000 rpm SATA HDD

All todays CPU's are considered good nowadays, and most should work.
What do you intend to do with your comp.?
GameOn....

well i need it for my Computer Science major, but i also wanted to play games on it...

heh...and i forgot about the power supply lol

but umm i was thinking like 500W or around that general vacinity...

i have one dude helping me build it who has built a few himself, and another guy who is like an expert, so they will be filling me in on stuffs, but i figured i'd get a few opinions before i set anything in stone heh...
