Greetings one and all at Tomshardware.
As you may have deduced from the message title I plan on building a computer whose components amalgamate to an approximate cost of $750.
I will be buying exclusively from Newegg.com.
System Usage from most to least important: gaming, everything else.
I already have a monitor with speakers so that will do for now. Although I plan on buying seperate speakers eventualy.
First and foremost I plan on overclocking the processor, but may may overclock the gpu aswell.
As for the memory, I am aware that athlonII's are only capable of utilizing dual channel DDr3 memory at speeds of up tp 1066 mhz, but I plan on upgrading to amd's six core Am3 proc when that comes out, so when that time comes I'll already have memory that it can fully utilize.
Also the video card comes with a Dvi to VGA adaptor hence the purchasing of a VGA cable, as that is my monitor's lone imput.
I certainly expect to. maybe ill spend the extra fifteen dollars or so on a celebratory pizza.
but in any case that 4890 that youve been recconmending to people for thier builds is actually part of a combo deal with a $20.00 Roswill angled hdmi cable (literal description)-for a discount of none other than $20. thought that was pretty nifty.
