  1. I started wanting Amd. Then I decided I like Intel. I recently settled on my build and plan on ordering in about a week... same theory. 1000 dollars. SLI option. starcraft.

    I won't force it upon you but if you'd like to see the best Intel build 1000 can buy I'll post it.
  2. Sure why not?
  3. Here is a build -
    X4 955 + HD 5870

    If you want to save more money, then even the HD 5850 would suffice, also you can add 1 more later on...

  4. If you want Intel option -
    i5 760 + ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.492249

    GTX 460 1GB + Free game
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.455033

    So still should come in the same price range I think...

    All of the above comes out to about $960 with rebates. I did a lot of reading up and I love this build. The i5 proc overclocks easily and the payoff is big. Same goes for the 460, which provides GREAT bang for buck. and it kicks @$$ in SLI. One 460 is totally fine for now, and later you can another another for SLI and it will be even cheaper. ;)
  6. ^ Those are good too...
    As for the PSU, even this 650W XFX would suffice if going with GTX 260 SLI

    So should save some more money...
