Doesn't exist. That is a $1000 build minimum. If you can't afford $1000, then i7 is not for you.

You missed the quality case, PSU, and HD. And a DVD drive? i7 was not meant to be this cheap, Core i7 or not that system would not be fun to use. That HDD would be 1/4 full just installing Vista x64. And low quality case, low quality PSU would not be fun, let alone installing your games/Vista without a DVD drive? If your gaming then look at a E8500 system, or AMD 955 system, otherwise save up or wait for Core i5.

I wouldn't skimp on the PSU, for a Core i7 build I would definitely go with something like Antec, PC Power and Cooling, Corsair, OCZ etc.,

Not having a quality case isnt a big deal all it does is sit there(and do i really need to be able to stand on it), I didnt realise that it wasnt a dvd drive made this list quite quickly, a lg dvd burner costs $10 dollars more, PSU wise yeah its probably is a good idea to get a better psu the COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W costs $30 after rebate and should be sufficient. A Hitachi 500GB harddrive costs $45 after rebate so the new total cost is $829.40.

But you could just go with a cheaper graphics card somthing like a 4870 for $125 and that would bring the total down to $764 and that way you would have $36 to spend on improving other parts of the system.

This is exactly why you don't want to get a i7 build for less than 1k.

I mean seriously 1GB of ram?? lol have fun with that.
Not to mention the cheapie power supply, stock intel motherboard. You aren't going to OC this setup.

I would also get a better case as I tend to use a case for multiple builds if I don't give it to a family member.

Read my second post, also you missed the part where it says 1gb x 3, so its 3gb and that way you get to use triple channel aswell

go to p2 or c2q or c2d

Yep: Pay what tho owest! I7-users like to keep-out the riff-raff.

While you could possibly afford a i7 in that range, it wouldn't be much of a future proof system. If you wanted to overclock, you would have to switch out the motherboard and RAM. As others have said, there are better, faster systems for that price range (Phenom II, C2D, or wait for i5). Or wait until you have a little more money.

Shrex also forgot the OS and tax. Add in $99 for Vista, (you can use Windows 7 RC and wait until June 2010 to purchase a copy) and $75 for tax...plus a DVD drive and definitely a better HD...80GB is way too small...and a good PSU.

You'll get close to $975 without OS.

Hey guys give shrex a break; the OP asked a question and got a pretty good answer. He took the time to try to answer the OP's question, in fact his is the only attempt at it that was taken. He put in more effort that the OP, which is a peeve of mine, posters not putting in any effort to answer their own questions. Are any of the components debatable? Yes, that's what the forums do debate. With some time to buy on sale some of the debatable parts could be upgraded to better parts for the near same money. Point is shrex did put together a system in the range that the OP asked about. I would say to the OP as others have that the system you really want is going to cost you more than 700 bucks. I think that you want it for gaming? If so and you really have to have an i7 think about 1500+.

I don't think anyone was ragging on shrex...he did a great job of piecing together a i7 system for $800...it's just that IMO with some of the things forgotten, and tax/shipping that the actual "drive-away" cost is more like mid-upper $900. I think more the point was that the OP needs to have realistic goals...if it's gaming, then for $800, I would put together a Phenom II system...or maybe a 775 based system with more on the videocard front.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 x ($279.99) CPU INTEL|CORE I7 920 2.66G 45N R - Retail $279.99 (going with stock intel fan should be decent for oc with good airflow in case usually up to 10pct i believe i could be wrong, i dont really oc much so wouldnt know details)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 x ($-62.00) DISCOUNT FOR COMBO #216527$-62.00

with os oem windows vista home/ xp will be around $1000

if u go with mediocre mobo and 3gb ram and so so case u can cut another 100-150 bucks so 850+ u can have a decent i7 system
July 26, 2009 3:39:49 PM

Yeah but an equivalently priced Phenom II system will outperform it...
July 26, 2009 4:10:04 PM

You can't be serious... A Phenom II system would allow better RAM, a large hard drive, and/or better graphics cards. A sub $1000 i7 system is stupid, pure and simple.
