New PC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I want to build a new machine and I wanted to see what you guys think limit is $420 and i have memory and a HD.

Case: RaidMax XA BlackSilver

Motherboard: BioStar TForce6100-939

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego E6

I would like to use the left over to buy a CD-RW/DVD Combo b/c i sold my old 1 with the PC in my SIG. so keep this in mind. I also do not have a PCI-E card yet so that is why I am going with the Tforce to hold me over. Ne opinions would help me decide what to do.

With your current build as long as you don't have alot of extra peripherals running off of it youll be fine. Now if you decide to upgrade the vid card in the future you might have to because its gonna suck alot of power. If the factory one is stable with your rig then it wont matter, oure fine.

Better PS for the same price initially, $10 cheaper AR (it's the one I'm using, woot). That is, if you decide to get a separate one.
