Its been a while since i learned about computers, or visited this website, and since i decided to build my own gaming pc, well i needed some refreshening, im looking for a 1500$ gaming pc, im not with the newest tech at the moment, and i need someones oppinion, dont need any of the other accessories, mouse, keyboard, moniter, just the major stuff, GPU, CPU, power supply, mother board, anything you can name, price can go over 1500$, just not over kill
$1500 will get you ALOT these days if you do the work yourself. For that price you are looking at an Intel i7 920 and all the trimmings. The x58 chipset, which is what supports the i7, allows for both SLI or Crossfire. Just make sure you don't get the cheapy boards that only support one of the other. DDR3 memory in Triple channel is just FAST. Throw some parts up on here and we can help. Pick a case, video card, etc. What games do you play and what res is your monitor?
ok, well when i was planning to build a computer, i had the Q6600 and like a 9800GTX, i havent been up to times lately, so if theres anything better, bang for the buck, would be nice, games i would be playing... Supreme commander, command and conquer, spore, the 9800GTX can definnetely play all these games, good and beyond, but with the fast changing tech i might want something that might last me a bit longer, i picked out the Q6600 because supereme commander is said to run better on quads, but the CPU can be anything to fit in with the specifics, i would also want to overclock, even if i dont know how
