Ascendtech Inc. seems to be very respected through www.pricewatch.com with 5 stars... Do you happen to use www.pricewatch.com? I wouldn't mind using Newegg if I knew I can get the most for my money... I really really appreciate the fast response Shadow703793.. As far as a max budget... I would love to stay under $400.00 without a monitor.. I have heard good things about AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 7750.. Not sure if it would be my best bet tho
Thank you Jim937... I would be most greatly appreciative if someone could help assemble a machine with me... The reason I liked Ascendtech is because they would assemble the machine at theyre warehouse.. I don't know how to build them so I would like to leave that up to them.... Would someone out of the kindness of theyre heart write down what would be the best setup for me... motherboard, cooling, video card, processor I really do like AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DUAL CORE 7750 2.7GHZ, 7750 as far as processors since it seems to have wonderful reviews.. but all of that i need help with Do you think I could assemble this stuff myself?
Corsair 400CX (NEVER skimp on the PSU, also this allows for future upgrades esp. the GPU)
SAPPHIRE 4670 512MB (not needed, but I thought you may want to play some recent games at decent quality)
Hitachi 1TB (looks decent for the price)
G31M-ES2L (basic decent OCing board)
LG DVD RW
2*2GB DDR2 800
That's the Intel version. Comes to $454 before MIR.
Same as above except for CPU: X2 7750 and Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2
Total: $452 before MIR
I highly recommend you get the Gigabyte I listed as the 630a chipset listed by Jim is quite old.
Most of the cost of the build above comes from the GPU and the PSU. What every you do DO NOT skimp on the PSU. You can drop the GPU and save $70.
For watching vids you really don't need a GPU imo.
Is there a way you can add all that to the Newegg or mwave cart and just send me the link? I dont know how to assemble it either I just need everything in the cart that will complete this computer minus the monitor. I'm so sorry for being a pain in the ass guys
I have no idea how to OC.... If that is an easy process maybe I should stick with Intel? This is what I have so far.... For some reason I got a higher total than you suggested, maybe I added the wrong thing?
