New E6500 build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm planning on buying a rig to play TF2 with decent fps because mine is waaaay to old for any type of decent gaming.

So I've posted in the AMD section seeing as it's known for being cheaper, but the site I'm ordering from is a little limited in CPU choices.

So I saw the E6500 and it's only a couple of € more expensive than the dual core AMD processor I was going for.

So what I'm asking if it's possible for you to make a me a good rig with a e6500 cpu that has some room for OC'ing if possible, my budget is about 300€.

Thanks everyone!

/offtopic: you didn't ask this question, but buying now a sk 775 soket CPU and motherboard is just about the worse choice you could make for a new computer. Compared to the Athlon X2 these CPUs are at best of similar performance, but their motherboards are outdated and overpriced and in a few months they will be impossible to upgrade since Intel will stop building sk775 CPUs.

My 2 cents for a 300$ build would be an Athlon X3 440 on a AMD870 motherboard (Gigabyte, Asus are safe bets), 2x2GB DDR3, an Antec PSU+case combo, a Samsung F3 1TB and the best graphics card you can buy with what is left. This CPU would run circles around the e6500, can be OCed and AMD870 motherboards have such benefits as SATA3 and USB3.

Thanks for the quick (and good response). Well I'll stick to AMD then...
