final price is 625.92$. it has a nice quad core, great gpu, 4 gigs of fast ram, and a super fast hdd. some possible upgrade would be:

adding a second 5770 for xfire
adding another ram set for 8 gigs
buying the hyper 212 with the money left over to oc the cpu further
setting up a raid system or buying a ssd...

thats about as far as would be logical to take this computer...

(HERES MINE IN A POST I MADE FOR SUGGESTIONS)

Hello,
im putting together a budget gamer build. my motherboard is going to be a ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard. Im goin with an AMD Phenom II X2 555 Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor - C3 Revision Model processor cause im just gaming but if need be ill unlock the other 2 cores. Im going with a 500gig seagate 7200 with 4 gigs of crucial ddr3 1333 memory. the case is an antec 902 and ive got an antec earthwats 500wat powersupply. I got a sony cd-dvd-r. So all together this setup is 600 bucks. i figure i can get up and running with the ATI 4200 iGPU and after a few weeks get like a 5870 Cypress XT or Pro. I know I MIGHT need a bigger power supply but doubt it. Anyone have any suggestions as to my setup. Im thinking about adding a thermaltake duo orb for my cpu cuz im gonna overclock. MY MAIN QUESTION IS THIS, the 1 16x pci-e will be great for my 5870 but I have a another slot at 4x. Someone said that they would use that for a physx card. Where would i get this physx card cause i definately want physx. Do i just get a cheap card that supports physx and if so do it in sli with the 5870 cause I thought that would bottleneck it. Im not too sure about the X2 with physx all in one card, everyone says it is too expensive of an option so Im liking the fact that I can get a 5870 and then get a little physx going on the side in my 4x. Please help me, im learning on the go here!
