Need Help with New Build


Alright the past 2 days i have been spinning my brain trying to figure out what i want and get the best bang for my money and well i am no closer today than i was 2 days ago. I realize alot of you are way better at this than i am so i am here for your help.

First my Budget is $1200.00

I already have a Sony 32" LCD TV that i will be using as my monitor so i will be using HDMI.

I want something that is Crossfire that can support 2560x1600 resolution and run games at least on medium.

Would also like to keep it AMD but am up for Intel solutions.

Also want 8GB Memory.

So if i could get your help in suggesting a build that includes everything i need for just the tower and keep it under my budget would be greatly appreciated. Newegg or Amazon only for me. Thanks in advance for anyone that helps me.

Also wanted to add that i have windows 7 64bit already so that's not needed. Thanks

    If you're spending over $1,000 I'd do a Sandy Bridge build when the MoBos are re-released in April. This one is $1,167 and has room for CF / SLI, overclockable. Stuf marked "later" is for future upgrades.

    Case - $90 - Coolermaster HAF-922
    Case Fans - Later - CM Red 200 mm
    PSU - $90 - XFX Black Edition 750
    MoBo - $395 - ASUS P8P67 Pro
    CPU - incl above - Intel Core i5-2500K
    Cooler - $40 - Scythe SCMG 2100
    TIM - $5 - Shin Etsu
    RAM - $90 - (2 x 4GB) Corsair CAS 9
    GFX - $290 - Asus 2 GB 6950
    GFX - Later - Same
    HD - $65 - Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 rpm
    SSD - Later - OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 120GB
    DVD Writer - $22 - Asus 24X DRW-24B3L w/ LS
    OS - $100 - Win 7-64 Home Pre

    IS there any 32 " TV that supports 2560 x 1600 resolution ?

    - Case has hi airflow for twin cards and OC
    - PSU has 10.0 performance rating om jonnyguru for stable power and voltages
    - Cooler more than adequate for 5Ghz OC's
    - Low profile RAM to insure 0 clearance problems w/ CPU cooler

    Only real option I can offer given current prices is the DF-35 case. If ya not partial to the922, this would cost ya another $30
  3. Thank you all for your replies. They are all great suggestions and hopefully will help anybody in that price range. There is solutions for now and a great solution for anyone that is willing to wait or build their system at the beginning of summer.

    Again thanks.
