How good of a computer can I build for $1000? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Defiantly start checking out Newegg shell shocker deals on a daily basis, I've found some pretty sweet deals doing that. Might as well namedrop Combo Deals too.

I wouldn't grab an SSD, too pricey to be a the only drive in your rig (roughly $2 per GB). For the same price as one of those you could just get a 2nd Graphics Card....which is a much better investment for a gaming rig. Defiantly consider it as a long term upgrade tho, they are indeed a performance increase but not so much that it's worth cutting back expenses on another more useful part. Any Sata HDD will suffice and cost way less.

could too, but things like case, psu, HDD and RAM would have to be budget level. sufficient but budget level. but every budget component except the case is pretty much upgradeable.

Just based on what I've seen and what other people suggested, I think its totally possible.
And there is always some deal going on too.
