AMD + Crossfire Build! PLEASE HELP!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im looking to build my first AMD Rig, im going crossfire (ATI), Iv been planing this out for like months i want to get the most out of my money, i will have $900 Canadian, i need a Case(with PSU atleast 550 watts for Crossfire), A motherbaord (939 socket, Crosfire mobo), CPU ( AMD ), Videocard,Ram.

Here is what i think i should get so far i want the best as possible!

CPU - AMD Athlon 3700+ Sandy 1mb - $250

Videocard - ATI 1900XT 512 Crossfire Ready ( 1 for now later i will get another and im getting this for half price so its only 300$ canadian!!)
Motherboard - Asus A8R32-MVP Deluxe Socket 939 ATI Radeon Xpress 3200$250

OR
Asus A8R-MVP Socket 939 ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Crossfire Chipset Dual $114
OR
MSI RS482M4-ILD Socket 939 ATI Radeon Xpress 200(RS482) $94

(the first 1 (A8R32-MVP is so amazing but is 250 which is pricy!, and the rest seem ok i guess... i really need help, i want crossfire in my mobo and good features and a solid long lasting mobo)

RAM- I really dont know much on ram i heard OCZ is good?, i want somthing around 80-120 max i can spend on ram i want atleast a gig

Case and PSU - i like this case but it comes with only 450 wat PSU http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...617&cid=CS.664

PLEASE USE www.canadacomputers.com to find cases cuase im proby going to buy it there unless u find an amazing good cheap case thats worth it and under 150 msg it remember this is all canadian prices and im canadian
and i need atleast 550 W i belive for ATI's Crossfire ?

Hard Drive - Maxtor 200 Gig (already Purchased)

Total of all this should come to around 900-1000 but the cheaper the better but i dont want to lose quality!

Thanks so much for your time your help will be apreciated! this is my first build and i want it to be a good 1! i dont work and barly make money lol but i love to game i want to be able to play all the newestgames like fear cod2 and more to come. thank you.
