  1. $586 AR - not sure if u need kb/mouse/speakers but in any case more than enuff headroom for those $$ wise hehe A small top up for a Samsung F3 500 would be nice too hehe
  2. ^ That's a very good budget build. Since there's a $100 left (minus shipping & tax), you might want to look for a 3.0Ghz AM3 CPU if it's not too expensive.
  3. Good build. Another option for the extra room in the budget (assuming nothing else is needed) is to spend about $40 to upgrade to an HD 5750 and the rest on a better AM3 CPU. The 5750 would be a little better, stay a little more current with Windows 7, and give you the potential to play more games or watch stuff in full HD.

    Another suggestion would be to spend an additonal $8 to get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB HDD. This would be faster than the WD in the build.
  4. Negative on downgrading to a dual core - games like GTA4/Dragons Origin will bully all/any dual core - a tricore is far better and the clock speed can be made up with OCing

  6. @niklas: You're absolutely right. I didn't read the prebuilt part...

    @OP: In that case, you're not asking the right people. This section is pretty much dedicated to building your own. I highly recommend you consider building your own, as it's really quite simple, not to mention cheaper and higher quality.
  7. +1 on DIY however if u 100% set on prebuilds do study in detail the *exact hardware* they cram into that price point to ensure they not dumping inferior hardware to you @@
  8. Don't know about newegg, but ncix.com does build a pc for a price for you. Or you can always print out the list of parts, buy local and pay 'em to build it.
