Hey, was thinking of what I could get my family for christmas. Then i thought a computer. We dont have a desktop only my mom has a laptop. No1 ever goes on my sig rig. So what a better present? I have an amd 64x2 5200+ from b4 i upgraded and a amd 580x crossfire board. Thats a start right? I want to upgrade my graphihcs card to a 4850 and if i get one for say 150 i can put my 2900xt into the build. I know the performance and it would probably be 50 bucks more expensive then getting an 8800gt or something and ive been wanting to upgrade my gpu for a while. This will be for my family so my bros will want to game like cod4, guitar hero 3, bf2, and my parents will want to powerpoint, excel, and all that boring crap. So i know the performance im getting with those parts. I have 300 bucks now but will have like 150 more by december. If i get the 4850 i will have 150 bucks now and 300 then. I still need a psu, case, mouse, keyboard, wireless card, cpu cooler (not oc'd cpu), ram, hdd, cd drive, and a monitor. I know its alot. Maybe i will put more money towards this. Im going to compile a list and see what the cheapest i can get things for is. Alright ocn members, do ur best!
