Need help building a lan box.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I need to build a tiny computer that could play BC2 with decent framerates.
Case needs to be something like this but I'm not sure which one to get.

My budget is around $550. Would anyone care to help me?

Do you need peripherals?

Here is what I came up with, sorry there's not too much thought put into it, but I hope it helps somewhat

I'm not surprised that none of you are suggesting worthwhile memory.
1. Patriot Signature 1600 CL9 memory - $43 shipped
2. Crucial Ballistix 1333 CL7 Micron IC memory - $40 shipped (currently not in stock)
Remember to use DM15A02US to get 15% off that adds another $4-8 discount

The total of the stuff you guys suggested adds up to over 650$ (with tax and shipping).

Is there a way to get a better gpu and stay at 600 total (tax+shipping)

A motherboard with a AMD 780G Chipset or higher, that will run BF BC 2 but I suggest a 880G Chipset motherboard.

A motherboard with a 785G Chipset will cost $120 and an Arhlon 635 CPU $99.

I would have picked that CPU but it's not available at newegg anymore.
I have picked a 880G motherboard. >.>

Thanks.
Mine was $560, no way it's $100 shipping. The tax is inclusive, you don't add it on.

What's wrong with the GeIL stuff I suggested? It's what I have and I have no problems with it.
