Budget AMD Gamer

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I may be getting a new AMD build from my gf. So of course I need to keep the prices down so she doesn't change her mind. I have a tentative setup I want you guys to look at.

Please post improvements whether it be increased performance for little $$$ increase or decrease in $$$ for little performance loss.

Thanks to all who take the trouble to do this for me

The build is for ME not her lol. She's buying it for me

there you go . that shaves 50$ off for the same performance.

Theres also this HDD. that saves about 30$ for very little performance loss, and there will be the same performace in games. definietly worth it IMO.

Thats 80$ cheaper for very very little performance loss.

Enjoy

the asus 465 is $215 shipped and yours is $231 shipped


And I don't want to replace a F3 1tb for a refurbished F2 1tb for $25ish savings. But appreciate the suggestions

...uuuhhh, what are you doing?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-116-_-Product

there's $100 off

I assume she isn't going to do eyefinity, which will have a hard time doing anything past 3840x1024, but it's do-able

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182199

another $50 off

...I could probably find more deals, but seriously dude, trying to pair a $100 CPU with a $230 GPU? You know better than that...Dragon platform??? AMD CPU, chipset, and gpu, consistency my friend

EDIT: open box deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...873R-_-Product

better 5770

Please don't cheap out on your mobo, it's the component that holds together your whole system.
Unreliable Mobo=Unreliable system.
