Quad Gaming Rig for around 500? - Page 2

post #11 of 37
You could get the Antec Sonata III that comes with an Antec PSU which is enough for your system and is cheaper (case + psu). Of course the case might not suit your taste

Good alternative if you are looking for quiet solution. But the 600 will be better for airflow if that's what you're looking for.

why hasnt anyone mentioned the athlon II's? They are great chips for those on a budget, which this is....

also you might want to look into the for sale threads, since SB was just released people are going to be selling their old components to join in the hype

No there are Athlon II Quads. If the OP is planning on OCing then I don't see a problem with OCing an Athlon II and getting a better graphics card.

By the way OP, what res will you be running at?

Especially the c3's, they can achieve 3.6Ghz from what I understand pretty easily. take that and pair it with a 5770 and your set for a while as far as a budget system is concerned

i would buy this if i were putting a 500 bucks rig
PSU 1 89.99$ (-10$ MIR)
PSU 2 89.99$ (modular but 30 watts less and no MIR) both PSUs are enought for a future crossfire setup anyway
Video Card 129.99$ (-30$ MIR) will run preaty much everything you throw at it
CPU + Mobo combo 183.99$ (-15$ MIR) phenoms are only good if your on a 800+ budget , for a 500 dollar budget this chip is best bang4buck , mobo will support crossfire in future and not tear down ur wallet
Memory 1 49.99$ not the best but will do the job
Memory 2 59.99$ (-10$ MIR) same price if u get MIR and slightly better
Case 1 49.99$ (1 side , 1 rear fans) <-personal preference since the side fan will cool future CF setup
Case 2 49.99$ (1 rear )

total price : 503$ , total price after mail in rebate : 448$
thats as future proof and as price per perfomance (ppp) as you can get i think
recieve the MIRs and you can grab an HDD

I have no clue what res I'll use. I'm planning to use my HDTV, I think it runs 1080p, but not sure of the actual resolution.

And thanks to everyone for your help, I appreciate it!

What kind of games are you planning to run?

If they are intensive at all, i'd suggest getting an athlon II and OCing it and getting a stronger graphics card to run 1080p.
