budget build!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright so here's the deal. I had a GREAT build for just under $700 on newegg and it was sitting in my shopping cart until I got paid today. So I come home with money and what not and to my surprise Newegg decides to change ALL of my combo deals so now it's going to cost me way more than I can afford.

So I would like some build help if possible with a budget of $750.

Limitations
Amd Phenom II 955 - CPU
a full sized case
500-600W psu
ATI card
500-1tb HDD
No need for an OS or Monitor or optical drive


help me out please!

Best I can do.

bit more than your budget; I wouldn't skimp on things like the case/power supply as they will last more than one build. The board/ram should be more future proof and allow you to use much better processors seeing AM3/DDR3 will be around a long while.

I pulled the trigger on a deal I couldn't pass up Total of $731.31 WITHOUT rebates which totaled up to be $35 and skimmed on a HDD because I found one I could use for the time being. Will post building process.

I ordered and then canceled RIGHT after it had charged my card so now I have to wait 3-5 business days to order. Hopefully my new combo deals are still there. =/
