Sub $600 AMD Machine - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Interesting choice. I love how you skimped on the motherboard and chose the worst memory on the planet
I'm going to be in here with a suggestion in a moment, for now I have some other threads to take care of--
EDIT:
Phenom II x2 555 - $90
Biostar A880G+ + Windows 7 Home Premium - $140 (Not for unlocking/overclocking!)
Corsair XMS3 1600 9-9-9 - $43 after promo code DKMEM15, $33 AR
XFX HD 5830 + XFX 650W - $225, $165 AR (yes, it's finally back in stock!)
NZXT GAMMA - $40 shipped
Samsung F3 500GB - $45 shipped on Superbiiz
Samsung 22X DVD - $16
Corsair A50 cooler - $33, $23 AR

This actually goes slightly over budget at $632 (within budget if you take out the A50), but consider that there are $70 in rebates here! Many of the parts are of much better quality.

Of course you could find better deals going into a Microcenter for the CPU, MB and/or HDD.

I like your choices... except I've been VERY happy with my ASRock mobo!
