I need an AMD configuration thats around $400 - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Try an Athlon X2 and unlock the 3rd and 4th cores and over clock a bit (this is about 30 for the cpu and 70 for the mobo) ... my mobo is rock solid (sorry not trying to make a pun on as-rock) but it is real stable and doesn't give issues and you can get 4 gb of ram for about $100 so that leaves $100 for the case and power supply... should be a good little rig for your dad...

With all of your recomendations, I have made a configuration on Newegg that is just below my budget, and the gaming abilities for the machine has been scratched off the list. I will show you guys the configuration, but currently it on another computer. Also, a very kind person has given me a Dell 1545 laptop with a broken screen. Should I spend $70 on the screen, fix up the laptop, customize it to fit his needs, and sell it to him? Here are the specs of the laptop:

Pentium 4 Dual Core T4400 2.20Ghz
250Gb HDD (I will most likely upgrade it to 640Gb for movies)
Intel X4500MHD GPU capable of Blu-Ray unconversion and 1080p playback
3Gb of DDR2 PC 6400 Ram (2Gb and 1Gb)
Windows 7 Enterprise (same as Ultimate) 64-bit

So what do you think?
