Hence why an AMD build is usually better in budgets less than $800.

AMD provides better balance in low budget situations.

Since a lot of guys are putting budgets above $500 (trying to get 4GB of RAM and an HD5770 instead of an HD5670 seems like a good idea), I might as well suggest saving up a bit and get this for $602.92:

lol no OC-ing
Not the way to go. Sure, it outperforms Phenom II still in most cases, but is this really the best choice for the future? Locking yourself with a stock speed mess? What about, for the same price about, you get an existing Phenom II with AM3+ mobo. When the AM3+ processors come out, they too will be on 32nm, and OC ridiculously like the SB "K" processors, likely for the same price, unlike these other non-K LGA1155 processors that mostly can't. A cheaper 2-module, 4-core AMD FX Series processor will be enough for most everyone out there - and WILL OC on a platform known already to OC very well.

I don't like the other SB build either, with the i5 2500 (non K). First of all you're sticking him with a single channel 2GB DIMM, so even going for SB in the first place would be a complete waste because this would bottleneck it all. Not to mention the GPU is considerably weaker than the other suggestions, and the PSU I can't trust at all.

Don't buy a case, and you can save 50 bucks that way (I'm being completely serious)

just put the motherboard on top of the motherboard box.

I suggest if you can =] Open up a paypal account and if you are comfortable with purchasing some good used gear from some of the OCN members here that would be great in helping OCN members give their old gear a new useful home.

That could save you a lot of cash and you never know you might just get really good gear for an amazing price.

So what is going to be the final parts list for OP?
post #40 of 55
Ok so there's a huge difference then not being able to go slightly over budget. Best thing to do is like xd says, build with AM3+ and save up for a bulldozer CPU.

6850
http://www.overclock.net/video/97661...5-shipped.html

AM3+ 880G
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128490

F3 Spinpoint
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152181

Antec 430w Bronze
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371034

2GB DDR3 1600 (1 stick now, save up for another later)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104219

X3 450 3.2Ghz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103886

Tower + Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.627954

TOTAL Shipped = $501.70 (try to get seller to do $133.30 on the 6850)
