I am in the process of building my new gaming pc on a budget.
i already have the video card and i would like to get everything else.
DIAMOND 6850PE51G Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Approximate Purchase Date: the closer the better
Budget Range: 500 without Graphics card
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching HD movies
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor , speakers, OS , DVD RW, Speakers
I have not checked the memory compatibility against the motherboard list.
any notes on compatibility would be welcome.
With this build i am 40$ over budget, any help trimming it down would be apreciated.
It is hard to cut any money from that it is all quality components and should all work well together. At the cost of some overclock you could skip the CPU cooler and just use the std one to start with. I have never had issues with memory as long as the module voltage is supported by the motherboard.
