building a gaming computer - Page 3

post #21 of 35
No way you can build a good gaming computer for $700. I'd reccomend just upgrading your current PC.
post #22 of 35
Dani you already have a skt775 motherboard, upgrading to a skt939 AMD one would be usless......especially if your max limit is $700. Just upgrade with what you have. Put $300 into a x1800xt or 7900gt, sell your processor, and get a Pentium D 920.

Other than that, keep what you have

man you are simply mistaken, i dont think you need fx-60 and two 7900GTX and LIan LI case......

GOOD GAMING PC FOR $700:

CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz HT 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - Retail -$212.99

Mobo:
TUL AX480A-GF Socket 939 ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail Don't let unfamiliar name fool you. this is an awesome mobo that is very cheap and OCable, with a PCI-E 16X and it is very stable (read reviews)-$54.88

RAM:
Patriot Signature Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail-good OCer, cheap and reg price is basically same, so dont worry about "one day sale" tomorrow it will be $2.01 more thats all-$71.82

GRAPHICS:
XFX GeForce 7600 GT XXX (590MHz) 256MB PV-T73G-UDD3 Video Card - Retail-The 7600 XXX is a toned down 7800 for about $200!!! It is EXTREMELY AWESOME, with 590MHz Core Clock and 1600MHz Mem Clock easily OCable with the given copper hs and stock fan to 650/1780 and with your WC that things a humdinger with 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 best value out there, gets up to 7800 speeds easy, i know i love this card but hey its good.-$213.69
COSTS $553.38, with $146.62 to spare (could get a better graphics, or maybe better RAM; like ballistix, only $30 more and even better than patriot sig series, still have like $110 to spare, maybe get a new psu, dvd+-rw

HD, PSU, Optical Drives, Case, Cooling: YOU ALREADY HAVE

see you can do it easily

Try building a good one from scratch. I said you can not build a brand new PC without using parts from the older one.
