Thanks alot. More about : gaming computer max 900 1000 p1n3apqlexpr3ss March 16, 2010 7:31:15 AM For a gaming build like that... what video card you already have? 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 m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources 900-1000 Gaming computer needed - Forum Best Nvidia/Intel gaming build for 900-1000$ max - Forum Gaming computer max 1000 - Forum need a $900-$1000 INTEL GAMING PC - Forum Need help building gaming computer that can max any game for 2-3 years... - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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. m 0 l 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...
