Also, I'd go for the Asus DirectCU 6850 for the same price. fuskie October 31, 2010 1:46:03 AM xurwin said:here's a more good for gaming pc around $660. dont know what your budget is but will speculate. cpu:atlhon II x3 445 mobo:Asrock 870 extreme 3(x8/x8) psu/hdd:xfx 650watts/samsung f3 1tb gpu:sapphire 6850 case:cm haff 912 dvd drive:cheap dvd sata drive ram:mushkin enchance blackline 4gb cl7 this build is much faster in gaming. cause of the gpu. gpu matters always in games and not much on the cpu.and the mobo and psu will let you xfire you can bring another 6850. total:$659.92 thing is, i'm buying everything that i listed here @ memoryexpress..everything in newegg.com is cheaper but i'm in canada xD so yea, do you think what i listed here is pretty good? oh and the ram, it says w/ INTEL XMP is that ok even tho i'm using amd processor xurwin October 31, 2010 1:47:26 AM im not saying that you have to unlock it. phenom II 955 would be a great choice too. i just tried to put a budget gaming cpu, he didnt state how much he's budget is xurwin October 31, 2010 1:51:16 AM Why not use newegg.ca? yeah swap your gpu for a 6850 for much juice. then seagate 7200.12 1tb or a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb.
