New system to be built - 1.000 € available...

Now I need to buy a new system, since my current system is more or less too old... unfortuantely =(

I would like to get some reco0mmendations if you have some minutes of spare time - be sure, I will count on your advices.

Budget: 1.000 Euro
My Case and power supply I want to keep, if it makes sens ( current ssystem:

The 1000 Euros are dedicated to:
1 x HD

What do I want to do with the PC ?
NO 3d Shooter
NO professional photoworks
Internet (of course)
The Computer should be able to run upcoming games like DIablo, Age of Dragons and for sure Fifa 2010 in best quality.

I prefer a non power wasting system

I don't need special OC functionality

I tend to AMD, DDR3 and a Board with AM3 Slot, and HD4890 GPU. Alternatively the decision for DDR2, AM2+ could also be wisely.

Furthermore I really like ASUS express gate, this I would like to use.

What would be your recommendation for me ?

Thank you in advance for all advices!

More about system built available
  1. List case and PSU so we can check the video card will fit in the case. And that the PSU has enough power for the new video card and cpu.

    Asus M4A79T Deluxe 790FX motherboard €163
    Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition AM3 €125
    4GB OCZ Platinum Edition DDR3 1600 PC12800 €66
    Powercolor HD4890 1024MB GDDR5 €224
    WD Cavier Blue 640GB HDD €57

    This is not exactly a power saving system. For lower energy use you would have to cut back on gaming performance.
  2. Thank you for the first recommendation!

    My case is a Silentmaxx ST-11 Pro black and Power supply is BeQuiet! P7 450 W.

    Is there a big difference between tri and quad core ? Where will I FEEL the difference ?
  3. You'll feel the difference in future games and multitasking.

    you'll need to upgrade your PSU if you want a 4890 though, minimum is a mainstream 550w. You could probably get away with a 4850 though in those games unless your playing at 1920x1080 or above and if you were playing 1080p or 1920x1200 then you could get away with a 4870.

    Not likely. In two years you might need to have a quad core, but at that point you can upgrade to a newer processor. Now there isn't really any reason to get a quad for gaming. I would just get the 720 so you can put more money into the GPU or perhaps a better PSU. WR2 made some great suggestions.
