Need Help for Budget AMD Gaming Config

I would like to buy a computer asap but need some desperate help with what is the best for my buck. I liked the price point of lunyone's build in the sticky but the combos are out of date on newegg's site and there is a few comments saying those builds are a little dated.

I would like to keep the price point around $600-700 but I'm willing to move a little. I have a 24" monitor and would like to play new games on as high settings as I can. I only need a tower and OS. I doubt I will overclock it and am a maybe on SLI or Crossfire.

Thanks for helping me get the best deal for my buck.

  1. A couple of your guys combos dont seem to exist anymore. I took a few items from each of your suggestions and came up with this. Any advice you could give on this config would be great and I havent decided on a case yet.

  2. you don't need the x4 970, get the 955 to save some money then raise the unlocked multiplier 1.5 and your at stock 970 speeds.
  3. I'm also interested in this same price range. So it is a good build with the exception of switching the x4 970 with the 955? If so I think I will purchase this today.
  4. ^yes, but if you plan to CF in the future get a 6850 or 6870.
