    I know i might be pushing the budget a bit, but its good performance for $100 more, if not you cant really go wrong with builds posted above>!!
  5. zip if you are refering to me I clearly stated this "I know i might be pushing the budget a bit, but its good performance for $100 more, if not you cant really go wrong with builds posted above", yes its 100 more, but it also a little better pc.

    there is nothing wrong with others opinions. However you didn't post any links, besides missing a hard drive cost factor on you "$575.00" build, and thats just besides the point that neither the 620/630 or x3 440 are good for gaming, a dual core like Callisto would of make more sense, i know you trying to remain in the budget, but instead of giving him what ever he can get i gave him the choice of getting something better now then having to build a whole pc altogether in the near future or upgrading parts for that matter, wouldn't that be more expensive than the $100 now?
  6. oh ya you right $600 = is equal to euro lets not mind the dollar sing, yes i did miss the part where he has HDD, as he said HD i though he was talking about something else,

    620/630 overclocking better than callisto?, you know what why am i doing this? you know what you right, congratz!! :)
  7. "I would take a 620/630 or x3 440 over a Callisto dual core ANYDAY. Overclocked either of those would smoke a dual core in ANYTHING."

    yah its true I seen that some ppl put the $ sing but usually after see the newegg links they state right away that they need Newegg.ca or an European site, op didn't say anything to clear up, so we arguing pretty much nothing right now

    and $700 - $54 is roughly 650ish if he doesn't need a hard drive and you have to admit that ocz 1600 and amd 925 its somewhat little better, and i did point out your good suggestion if my opinion wasn't good, to go ahead and fallow yours, but reading your comment " he didnt get the 600 part" i feel you were insulting my intelligence, and did again in the 2 fallow up post stating that "your reading comprehension REALLY needs work." well, maybe it is true, but maybe you aren't the right person to come up with it.
  8. damn this son of his...
    look I was trying to fix the issue with a minimum of fight, but you are .*^%
    what ever man, you just trying to pick a fight.
    thanks to your BS the OP never came back for suggestions.
    I need a moderator to check this kind of behavior.
    this isnt an English class.
    stick to giving computer advice and stop having personal issues with the people, in other words stop being gay.
  9. He is right though, he never mentions overclocking.
