Ok so my old desktop just died out on me, was an Alienware Bot(bought it after Dell bought out Alienware). So I decided to start building a new rig and I wanted to stay ~$500 with it. I already have a monitor, keyboard, speakers, HDD, Disk Drive, and mouse.
Kinda just want to know how this rig looks for the price and if there is anything I should change.
that comes to 461$ if we'r using your ramm and PSU, so you save 40$ and you can look for better gpu
BTW in your original post ramm is not compatible with MB ddr2 ramm and mobo ddr3....
ok well the case i already bought cause i wanted that case but i was putting it here to add in that its in the $500 i wanted to stay near
as for that combo deal i think i might just change to that and save money on that and use that money to up my card like you said, i was looking at sapphire cards as well. thanks for pointing out that combo for me.
oh and the asus mobo is DDR2 1200(O.C.)/1066/800/667
so that should work with that memory right? thanks for pointing that out aswell lol would sorta suck to not be able to use them.
oh and i was reading reviews on the sapphire and a good amount of people are saying it died after about 3 months, my last card was a radeon x550 and it came dead and then i sent it back and got a new one and it died after a few months as well. Is this common for ATI? and should i worry about this card dying on me?
In my opinion nvidia have always been more trustworthy. They're calmer on bringing out stuff and don't rush ahead to directx11. In march the GF100 series will come out and casually take over the 5000 series.
