700 bucks, Intel gaming rig.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My buddy wants me to put him a system together.

He would like to use either the ATi 6950 or the 6870 or comparable to Nvidia.


His budget is 700.00. He already has a HDD, PSU, and OS.

He only needs:


CPU
GPU
RAM
CASE
MOBO

If your interested in giving me a hand I would really appreciate this. I am going to also post this in the AMD section. I would like to compare what can be put together.

Why clutter the forum with two threads exactly the same? I understand you are choosing CPU, but seriously...

Excuse me?

Did you read my post at all? I have very little knowledge on the Intel end. I don't see how this is cluttering.


Don't clutter my thread. Thanks.

I understand what your saying.

He wants prices on both systems, and I am clueless on Intel.

I honestly don't see how this is cluttering when I clearly stated in my post I was going to be asking this question in another section.

Yep.

And if you honestly think I am breaking TOS rules I will delete the AMD thread. I honestly try and abide by the rules the best I can. No harm intended.

Thanks! I will run this past him. I believe he is looking for a Quad core. I'm not sure if Intel is going to fit his budget though.
