Budget Range: Budget adjusted, bought a couple LCDs, new Budget $ 750-800


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Poker, some gaming, surfing, light video editing


Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, Speakers, HDD (WD blck 750Gb), DVD burner, Monitor (bought 2 22" monitors here), PSU (OCZ MosXstream 700)


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tigerdirect, geeks.com, superbiiz, amazon

Additional Comments:
Rebates are not available for me, i want quality parts as warranty is a big issue since im shipping parts outside the US territory.
Double monitor would be really nice, but im not sure if i can fit it into my budget.
If i get good pricing on monitor within my country ill buy it/them here, just for the guaranty add.

  1. anyone?....

    just found a funny combo on newegg...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.552882

    Windows 7 64 home + crappy software $ 82.98

    so you save $17 on the windows and get a crappy soft for free!


    Will like to see some suggestions for my build.... thanks!

    ^ You have a good build there...
    But if you will not be Crossfiring, then I dont see the use of that board, but even if you switch to some other non-crossfire board, you would save ~$25, So instead get this PSU -
    Antec EA 650
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371015
    So this opens up the Crossfire option without having to upgrade the PSU...

    For me with no desire for CF/SLI and shipping overseas: have u considered a smaller/lighter mATX build?

    Tower $603


    23" LCD $150 Free Ship

    $753
  4. batuchka's build is pretty righteous, and i'd use the extra money for either a larger monitor, or a second monitor. being able to 8- or 12-table without any overlap is key.
  5. newegg doesnt ship outside usa
  6. i thought newegg doesnt ship out of usa...
  7. soz sonic, didnt read :D
  8. actually newegg doesnt ship outside USA... but there is people who ship things from USA to anywhere in the world.

    I have problems here with biostar board, they are not really quality, and for me guaranty its a big issue being outside the USA.

    What about heat heat on micro cases?

    I like the idea of micro atx, so shipping its cheaper, then i can expend a little more in quality parts, and 2 monitors its really nice for poker playing!
  10. I have no problem with Biostars (i have a machine @ home with the same exact mobo and had built with their AM2+ line since 2008 for clients) and CM 341 is one of the few mATX that has huge clearance for long GPUs whilst having up to 4 x 120mm fans capability ^^

    As it is a good idea, i think im going mid tower, maybe going after the HAF 912.

    Think the Antec EA 650W its really a good idea, still waiting till black friday/cyber monday to see what is available!

    New Budget $750-800, no need for monitor.
