I don't get why everyone tells you to get the best hardware for a build that doesn't need it. Yes, this is OCN, but that doesn't mean we can't be smart with our money!

If you plan this right, I suspect the most expensive part of this build will be the dual monitors.
The monitor that he currently has is:

Same one from my sig rig by my recommendation

Dual or tri monitors is definitely a possibility..this is why I am asking here, because I really don't know what it takes hardware wise to make poker/browsing run like fire since I only make gaming rigs

Well, he has managed to get this far playing on a laptop screen (he just bought the monitor he has)..so he is looking to upgrade to a full size dedicated Poker rig to move into full time / semi pro poker.

There is most of your parts, add in the gts450 or gpu of choice, a dvd-rw drive and an F3 1 TB or Caviar black you're done.

Edit: And if you hadn't said some light gaming you wouldn't have needed a GPU as that board has built in graphics which are enough for online poker.

I would get something in the 4850 area or whatever the Nvidia equivalent is. Not the newest video card, but does it have to be?

If you HAVE to use eyefinity, get a 5770 at worst. 4GBs of RAM AT MOST. And a quad core at best. Then you just simply get an appropriate motherboard and PSU with a 500GB... heck, a 360GB hard drive. You don't need an SSD for this rig unless you want a "WOW!!!" factor for the guy.

Well I was thinking the SSD because he has an external hard drive that he's been using for years, where he keeps most of his data so a 60 GB SSD would be all he really needed to complete the rig hard drive wise, so I figured it could be budgeted..but at the same time..I would never skimp on true hardware for an SSD, when a budget is in place

Eyefininity is great for stretching a game across multiple monitors. But I don't see how it'd be good for someone wanting to have multiple things going on at the same time like he is doing.

He needs a multiple monitor set up, not an eyefinity/surround set up.

Athlon 2 x4 ~80-100
880g motherboard ~110
4GB DDR3 ~60
Light gaming video card ~150
Good 450W PSU ~60-70
Antec 300 Case ~60
2 more 1080p monitors ~300

Thats really all the guy needs. Poker doesnt take a lot to run since its all web based. Light gaming you dont need a high end chip for, an Athlon 2 quad is more than enough for it. pair that with a GTS450 or 5770 or something like that and hell be fine.

eyefinity\\3d-surround: These are un-needed. These two setups are for panning one app across all 3 monitors and making the monitors act as 1. If you have multiple windows, there is no need for this as you want them all visible. Does it theoretically benefit? Yes, but no more than just a normal 2-3 monitor setup. does.

Everything else will be cheap and generic from there (psu,case,drive)

He might even have enough for a second monitor
6GB with a 1055T? What?

Why recommend a triple channel kit with a dual channel chip?


Quote:
core i3, 6gb's of dual channel ram, 1tb drive, 5XXX or 6XXX series graphics cards for eyefinity.
lol, what? "6GBs of dual channel?" Do you guys know something I don't?
(the answer is no )

If you're going to get a dual-channel chip then get 2x2GB or 2x4GB. If you're going to get a 1366, then go with 3x2GB.

2GB+4GB is just.. .weird.

I understand about the eyefinity now, I think that 2 monitors should be more than enough since the guy has dealt with a laptop monitor until recently when he picked up 1 24 inch monitor..I think 2 of those total will do the trick!

As far as the hardware goes..I am seeing some conflicting reports as far as how much power people recommend..I want it to be smooth as butter but not more than necessary..build is certainly long term but doesn't need to be perfect tech

This should be more than enough and then just get one more monitor. The system comes to like $535 ($505 with MIR) I think. This will do just about anything he wants it to. Plus he can get an extra monitor with what's left over.
