Comments on This sub $500 Game Rig Tags: New Build Games Systems Last response: June 12, 2009 9:00 PM in Systems Share bigslacker June 12, 2009 8:42:21 PM Hello, my first post. Comments please on my budget setup listed here. I have the following games in mind for this system: currently finishing up: --------------------------- NWN 2 Mass Effect Universe at War On Tap: ---------- Assasin's Creed Crysis Empire Total War Dead Space (Yes, I'm behind due to time constraints) The idea with this parts list is that I can later recycle the parts for other uses. -video card (add another identical one) later in a higher power rig - remaining parts for a server here @ the house. Time frame for this rig purchase: < 1 month Time frame for "recycle" as about 6 - 12 months MB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case, PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... (I already have: Mouse, Keyboard, Monitor, OS, and HD ) $455.94 + $30.85 shipping to Atlanta Doubt I can put much more $ into the system right now. Other contraints: Would like to keep the PS under 625W so it'll live in harmony with my 1000kva ups.
