More about 1000 dream built
  1. can we get a future proof gaming machine in this budget ?
  2. I would want twice that for a "dream" build. Going to have a hard time squeezing an i5 and strong graphics into that budget if it still needs a monitor.

    I think I would go with an i5, 5770 and 22inch 1680x1050 monitor.
  3. You can get a basic system with enough juice to play today's game on high and the next gen on lowered detail.

    I'm thinking a budget-friendly AMD quad core, an ATI 4890, a decent case and PSU, a Samsung HDD, a decent motherboard, a not to expensive 21-22" monitor and peripherals.

    So you can get a good quality PC, but a dream machine? No way...
  4. ok so no dream built..gaming built??ok???
  5. Dream Build is not 1k... A common build around here is $1200 and thats just for a high end gaming...which is far from a dream machine.

    Heey he obviously need help on what to buy with $1000 of his :) some of us have budget you know :(
  7. Thats not my point. There is no "dream build" for 1k. Its just not doable, you can't really get a i5/i7 with a high end GPU.
  8. My build cost nearly $1000, (top to bottom) it does what I need it to do, but it is a long, long, looonnnnngggggggggggggg ways from what I would consider a "dream build".
    I would need to budget about $3's to really make what I would call "my dream build". Some of you would probably need more than that.
  9. If i only hade 1K this would be my dream build :)

    Hope this helps

    thinking about it some more i would do this

    Drop to a 20 " Monitor it will help a bit with FPS in games and up the GPU to a 955, With the changes it will add 26 bucks past your 1K but you get 35 in MIR

    I believe the question was if you were limited to $1,000.00, what would be the ultimate PC you could build for that budget.

    You always got to have a budget or people would build a 50,000$ pc.

    Pretty nice rig there. I myself am torn. At this budget I think an i7 is out of the question, specially since we need keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor. So it would really come down to the i5 or a Phenom II. Not sure which way I would go actually. Probably i5 because DDR3 ram, vs DDR2 of Phenom II.

    Radeon graphic cards aren't really my thing. I can never pick out good ones with them. I'm more of a geforce kind of guy.
  12. The Phenom can use DDR3.
  13. Best answer
    Now that the HD 5850 is in stock for sub $1k

    This gaming config is a cut above the rest at its price point ^^ Edit : Swap out speakers for WD 500 HDD

    Thats grate but no HDD KB OS MOUSE, So add another 200 to a 1K build
  15. Nah actually this would be for one who does not need OS, speakers (i had swapped this for WD 500) , kb. mouse just the tower and LCD hehe

    You could get a i5 750 setup for 83 more then that AM# build with the same setup so 1083

    If you live by a mircocenter you can save 50 off the CPU

    Should make your own post tho :)

    nods nice build BTW


    Its hard to nail it down when your adding in KB MOUSE SPEEKER ect because you can get some ipod speekers for 7 bucks or some for 400 bucks
  18. Does anyone know how to make an i5 build for this price? Yes with everything.
  19. Thanks - i just hope these HD 5850 dun run out fast hehe From what i gather peeps in Asia have it better than the USA :P
  20. The XFX 5850s at newegg are out of stock again. Didnt last more than a few hours.

    Its not hard to make an i5 with everything for $1000 as long as you stick with a microATX motherboard (no xli/crossfire), a 5770, a 1680x1050 monitor and cheap logitech mouse, keyboard and headset.
