I want to use the computer for gaming but also want as small/quiet a case as possible(Currently using an Antec 900) Other nifty things, i have a some friends who work for AMD/ATI so I would get a 20% discount on AMD processors. Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP Budget Range:500-700 before rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming Parts Not Required:I have all peripherals, HD, ATI HD 5850, Corsair 520 watt PS, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I am located in CA so amazon doesn't charge tax and I have free shipping, but really any location is fine Country of Origin: Los Angeles, CA Parts Preferences: no preference Overclocking: No SLI or Crossfire: No Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 24 inch Additional Comments:I would like the smallest, quietest computer case More about : gaming build 500 700 ScrewySqrl April 28, 2011 9:09:35 PM I'd STRONGLY recommend saving for about 2 months on this if you get a discount on AMD stuff: at the start of June, the AMD Bulldozer and Llano stuff should be shipping. existing AMD stuff really doesn't compete with Intel Sandy Bridge processors, in price or performance. Anything over $600 is better with Intel right now. This will change in June, when AMD should be solidly competitive again, and your 20% discount will really pay off. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
