I feel lazy and don't want to make a well thought out build. If you want to, you can do it for me. Just keep in minds that the price includes an operating system, decent gaming peripherals, and a monitor.

If you're going to be that lazy, I'l just wait until someone else suggests a build and just criticize it; much easier.

heres a good guide, and itll help you get a great build to knock out 2003 era games :p 


+1 Hilarious, the stuff is 10 years old. Those $2500 computers would cost 3100 today with inflation. Sad, a computer today costing 3100 would be at least 10 times faster.

Very nice but I cannot recommend the ASRock Extreme 4's any more. The seem to suffer from thin motherboards.
The extreme 6's and up are fine though.

Fair enough. An Extreme6 would only add $20 to the price tag, so I would certainly consider it worthwhile. I was just too lazy to change it. :p

Stellar find on that combo, Planar. I'd recommend a slight tweak, though:

Well, i think you right, its seem to be better though, i must admit, but the ram stick in my build, which prior by you, contain Ripjaw X series 1333MHz at CL7 & 1.5v (kind of waste money), overclock seem to be better, i think, would you compare both and tell me which is better, and better find which better.

I tend to think that CL9 and 1600mhz is pretty fine. You could probably get more performance by overclocking the Ripjaws X, but I don't think it would be very worthwhile. That said, I'm not a memory expert, so I could be wrong. I've never gone wrong with CL9/1600mhz, however.
