I've built my last 2 gaming rigs and I'm ready to go ahead and throw together another one as my Athlon 5200+, 8800GT system is showing it's age and I'm passing it onto my wife.
I'm building a system to handle Diablo 3 when it comes around, as well as solid settings on various FPS's.
I've got a case and a solid PSU (I also have an Antec Earthwatts 500w PSU I could use as well).
My budget for the remaining components is about $550 max. I'd like to be between $500-$550 as it's going on my newegg perfered account and no interest for 12 months.
Any suggestions / thoughts? Looking to buy in the next few days and wondering how solid this would be for a budget gaming build and if any changes I should make or go as is. Look forward to any feedback! Thanks.
Components Already Have:
Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion PSU: Corsair VX450W Power supply - 450 Watt Hard Drives CD Rom Drive
Wow, didn't realize there was that little difference in performance versus price. Much appreciated! Definitely throwing that in instead.
16 bucks under budget, but I can throw in a USB drive or something to push it to $500 even. TY!
