Look at intel i5 750 build on p55 platform with 4gb ddr3 ram, will give you just as much performance as the more expensive 920 build | Report abuse shubham1401 March 16, 2010 6:36:44 PM You don't need an i7 gor a gaming RIG with that budget. As p1n3apqlexpr3ss said, You can get yourself a i5 rig or a Phenom II Rig will be great. | Report abuse shubham1401 March 16, 2010 6:37:03 PM Please mention your current system specs | Report abuse Related ressources $ 900-1000 Gaming Build? - Forum Gaming rig $ 900-1000 - Forum $ 900-$1000 Gaming PC Please rate & comment - Forum Build in the $ 900-$1000 range - Forum First gaming computer , $ 900-1000 budget - Forum Ask the community Publish tauro91 March 16, 2010 10:56:54 PM I will be using Dual PNY GeForce GTS 250 1GB.

The real thing that matters is GPU power. Remember, For gaming an awesome GPU + good CPU is better than a good GPU and awesome CPU Otherwise you can also look for i5 750 processor which can outperform a stock clock i7 once overclocked. | Report abuse shubham1401 March 17, 2010 3:06:18 AM +1 to whitefang's suggested rig with few changes: Dual cooler Gigabyte HD 5870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... XFX HD 5870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... These brands are better than Powercolor IMO. You have to decide between modular PSU(HX series by Corsair) and non modular(TX suggested by whitefang) | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Need Gaming Computer.
