hi

First of all Im really sorry, i posted on the forum asking for the same question like 2 weeks ago and i actually got a build that i liked, i bought it and everything but i had some issues so i had to cancel my order. Now the problem is that some of the stuff in my previous build are not available so i need u guys to help me again.

Im just gonna copy and paste from the

previous post



Hi community

I Need your wise opinions and suggestions on upgrading my P4 3.0ghz 256mb nvidia 5700 LE.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: today, tomorrow, this weekend,

BUDGET RANGE: $ 400 MAX

SYSTEM USAGE: Folding@Home, causal gaming want to be able to play most games at low-medium quality, surfing the internet, watching movies and basic CAD.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, optical, case, no HD

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: none

PARTS PREFERENCES: none

OVERCLOCKING: No

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No!, no money.

Graphic Card: HDMI plz.


ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I need a HDMI cable aswell.
i would like a PC to be able to handle BASIC CAD usage, but i also dont have much money at this moment so i would like to spend the less possible.


I want, hopefully, something similar to my last build. Joyfully with a lot of rebates :D

Something like this could work for you:
Athlon II X3 435 Rana 2.9GHz $71
BIOSTAR A785G3 785G Micro Motherboard $65
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600 $100 after discount (may want to run at 8-8-8-24 timings)
Your HDD
Your Optical Drive
POWERCOLOR AX5670 512MD5-H Radeon HD 5670 (Redwood) 512MB $90 before $15 rebate
CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W $50 before $20 rebate
Your case

$376 before $35 in rebates.

A bit of a stretch in the budget:
POWERCOLOR AX5750 Radeon HD 5750 1GB $125 before $15 rebate

$411 before rebates of $35

I'm actually going to be buying a $400 gaming rig also :) , the 2gb of RAM is the best choice for a budget, how's the computer btw?
