    I suggest patient and a lot of research, use Neweggs reviews, they have a good participation level so you can get a good idea of what hardware is performing like in the wild. Yes, some of them have no clue what they are talking about but it's still a good tool when you can find fifty seventy or a hundred or more people reviewing a product. Ignore some of the DOAs unless there is a very high number of them, some DOAs are to be expected. Google hardware you are considering to get other reviews and Roundups are even better as you can see side by side comparisons. By all means so go to the manufactures web site and download the users manual and go through it as a lot can be learned from that like to make sure that some of the features are not just Angel Dust features, not really functional. Do a search of interesting hardware on your favorite forums and see what enthusiast that has actually use it are saying.
  4. seriously a budget of $250 ?

    Sorry no go.
    But I'll give it a shot

    AMD 2.7 ghz Rana X3 + a biostar TA785G3HD $130

    G.Skill 4 gb $105

    MSI 4770 $100
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127452&cm_re=4770-_-14-127-452-_-Product

    So $335, yeah I can't build a system for $250... WITH a good proc and video. That's impossible.
  5. Wait did you mean $250 for just video ? Then you can get the above and slap a 5770 and call it a day.

    edit: or even better yet 5830s are on par these days
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102878&cm_re=5830-_-14-102-878-_-Product $250
  6. Here's a thought, with $900 get a very good mobo, CPU and PSU then skank on the rest and upgrade that stuff later, if you're going P or H 55 you can use the integrated graphics. $900 is a very good start to a high end rig for a good shopper.
  7. yea i meant 250$ for just video...,i was thinking nVidia instead of ATi but everyone is recommending ATi..i have always been a nvidia guy but you got me thinking of ATI.
