Im planning to get a new gaming rig instead of my old Dell desktop that costed me 1500$ couple years back, its slow as hell now

Anyway, I want this pc just for playing MMORPG, they dont need high end pc but I dont want any lag at all when everything on high settings and alot of people around

I want to be able to run 3-5 clients of the game at the same time without having any lag and I want to record with FRAP without lag also

The pc will most likely be on the game 24/7 botting and I rather if the GPU had HDMI so I can connect it to my 55" TV when I feel like it

The budge is about 1k, no problem if it goes up a little
no need to include moniter

Try to include the highest RAM possible, if im not wrong that will prevent the laggin when multi-clienting

Im thinking about GTX 460 for a GPU or maybe get two on SLI

so what do you think

Thanks alot for the suggestion

I dont really like AMD CPUs I rather get Intel, but I dont know which is best for this budget

Well with your budget it should be no problem going for i7 but the MOBO is more expensive for it which means you might have to go lower on the GPU..... Also i'm not too good in putting an intel build together as i think AMD is better bang for the buck. :D

if he's running multiple clients, it might be better to consider a 6-core AMD processor.

with 3 clienst going at one time, you'll want to keep the 68xx GPU at least. a 1075T 6-core is $199, so to stay in the same price range as the first build, go to a Rosewill Destroyer case for $39.99,

Im not sure if I can find the AMD where I am, AMD isnt so famous here thats why im looking for Intel build

could you advice me which MOBO and which Intel CPU I should get

200$ off the budget wont be a problem, I could manage 1200$

guys could you mention couple MODOs for the AMD X6 1055T
that support SLI/crossfire , big enough for new graphic cards and support overclocking

incase i dont find one MODO in the store i'll have a back up one

edit: ok I just called the store

they dont have AMD at all, they only have i7 950 for 306$, does it worth?

and they have the GTX 460 for 240$ , does it worth it? I might get 2 for SLI

the prices here are too damn high but oh well

so what do you guys thinks

im in Saudi Arabia, computer parts are very expensive here

here are the prices I found

Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel for 213$

AMD X6 1055T for 240$

AMD X6 1090T for 350$

Gigabyte nVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 1536MB 413$

EVGA nVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 1GB for 400$

Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB for 165$ , best price to buy 2 for crossfire and might get discount

ok, for what I'm seeing, go for the 1055 and crossfire the 5770s. (if you can get a hd 6850 for close to the 460, get that instead. 460/6850 is better than

The AS Rock 870 Extreme 3 is the least expensive 8x/8x crossfire board, if available.

If not consider a 790. an 8x/8x crossfire board should be minimal given your multi-screen methods

8x/8x PCI? why not 16x/16x?

8x/8x loses at most 2% of 16x/16x performance of the very fastest GPUs, less on midrange GPUs like the 460 and 6850. This translates to 98 fps instead of 100 fps. or 49 instead of 50 on a GTX 580, HD 5970, or the like.

Its likely to be 1 FPS or less to use 8x/8x instead of 16x/16x for crossfire
