Gaming computer 1300$ Tags: New Build Gaming Computer Systems Last response: June 17, 2009 7:27 PM in Systems Share Maciuska June 17, 2009 7:03:29 PM APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Soon, 2-3 weeks SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, and so it could be on for a night PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Not sure, I live in Iceland so I use the site Computer.is and its my most preffered one. PARTS PREFERENCES: Good parts, not a MSI motherboard OVERCLOCKING: No, and maybe graphic card in crossfire. MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have 1280x1024 now but I am thinking about a 22 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like a quiet PC, and good for gaming. Oh well, I am buying a new pc mainly because it is pretty old expect my graphic card. I will just give you links to computer.is, it is in Icelandic but you can still read the name of the things and specs in English. First I will tell you my current specs and then what I have on my mind. Now I have: Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 6000+* (3 GHz) AM2, Retail http://www.computer.is/vorur/6559 MotherBoard: MSI K7N2G MS-6570 AMD (v1.X) ATX Mainboard (This one I got from my friend and I have no idea where it is from) RAM: 2x Kingstone DDR2-667 1G Memory Although it is gone from Computer.is Power Supply: Corsair VX550W Black, This one I got from Poland and I dont even remember the name of company Hard Drive: Western Digital WD2500JB 250 GB ATA100 7200rpm 8 MB Hard Drive (Its like 3 years old) http://www.computer.is/vorur/2393 Graphic Card: Power Colour ATI Radeon HD4870 512 MB PCI- Express Computer Case: Some old all white little case. Disc Drive: Pioneer DVR-112DBK, 18X Double Layer, DVD+/-RW Drive (Black), Bulk http://www.computer.is/vorur/5613 Monitor: Acer V193Wb 19 inch Widescreen 2000:1 5ms LCD Monitor (Black) http://www.computer.is/vorur/5155 And 3 motherboards died with my new Radeon 4870 through one year. Thats also a reason that I would like Gigabyte instead of MSI for a motherboard now. Anyways, lets get to the new computer: Processor: Intel Core i7 Processor, i7-920, 2.66 GHz, 8 MB, LGA1366 CPU, Retail http://www.computer.is/vorur/7132 MotherBoard: Gigabyte, GA-EX58-UD3R, Core i7/ Intel X58/ DDR3/ CrossFireX/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard http://www.computer.is/vorur/7210 RAM: Supertalent - STT D3-1333, 2 GB/128Mx8 Samsung Chip Memory http://www.computer.is/vorur/7115 Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower W0104 650W w/14cm Fan Power Supply (Black) http://www.computer.is/vorur/6094 Hard Drive: Seagate, ST3500418AS, 500 GB, SATA2, 7200 rpm, 32 MB Hard Drive http://www.computer.is/vorur/5471 Graphic Card: Power Colour ATI Radeon HD4870 512 MB PCI- Express (The same one) Computer Case: KÖNIG MICRO ATX CASE WITH LCD TOUCH SCREEN, model CMP-COMPCASE20 http://www.computer.is/vorur/4233 Disc Drive: Pioneer DVR-112DBK, 18X Double Layer, DVD+/-RW Drive (Black), Bulk http://www.computer.is/vorur/5613 Monitor: Acer, V223Wbd, 22 inch Widescreen, 2500:1 5ms DVI LCD Monitor (Black) http://www.computer.is/vorur/7091 Okay, so I think that parts work together, and maybe I should get a AMD Phenom II 920 if I find a one and another 4870 512mb? And another question, Would: Giga-byte ATI Radeon HD4870 512 MB DDR5, 2DVI/TV-out PCI-Express Video Card, Retail and Power Colour ATI Radeon HD4870 512 MB PCI- Express Work together if I would put them in crossfire? Anyways thanks. More about : gaming computer 1300 Reply to Maciuska Anonymous June 17, 2009 7:27:46 PM 1. I think Crossfire/sli is overrated. You're better off saving that money and getting a 4890 instead. 2. Yes they should work should you choose crossfire. Make sure that all the specs are the same though.
