All I really need now is the Graphics card.
-Intel Dual Core E5500(2.80 GHz)
-2x 2GB DDR2-800 RAM (Kingston)
-Asus P5QPL-AM Motherboard
-generic 500W PSU
Is what I have and they were given to me by my friends and since I dont want these to gather dust, I decided to build it.
As of posting, the 9800GT costs around 117$(converted from local currency at current exchange rate of 1$ = 44PhP) while the HD5770 costs 194$ at the nearest PC shop...
I would have settled for a 130$ card, but as with the poor selection at where I am, I have to make do with what is available
So I can either go for the HD5770 or the 9800GT depending on how far I can stretch my budget?
And also, would you expound what impact should the processor "bottle-neck" the system?
And would having a Core2Duo E7500 (2.93Ghz) instead somewhat remedy this?
