if you want nvidia .. go for gtx 560 or higher .. that's the minimum for the games now

^ Not true, the Gigabyte 560 Ti OC is clocked at 900mhz which puts it passed the 570. Hence this specific 560 Ti > 6950
September 23, 2011 2:50:08 AM

dual bios gives the option for the brave but when you need 1.2GB vram for some of the titles youll be way ahead

mind you ive seen the 560 non ti in action gigabyte at 930mhz and it was actualy terribly impressive at 1920x1080
September 23, 2011 4:39:11 AM

^ 1GB Vram is really all anyone needs. I run a 5850 1GB and it's fine (Though it's aged since 2 yrs ago) as for the 560 Ti it is great OCd.

CRAZY I just saw your old system in the signature, when you get the new system your going to shed a tear or two

Yeah the case is ugly but I swear by it, I will build my next machine using the same case unless there is a massive sale on something else. I already have
Perfect venting great cable management great everything Esata up front and Enough space to SLI and crossfire with tons of cooling options

Only real issue is cleaning it all the time I have lots of 120 fans sucking in the dust

September 23, 2011 1:46:41 PM

ok i like all your suggestions but can windows 7 32bit run 8GB ram because i lost my 64bit disc and windows 7 cost way to much ?
September 23, 2011 1:57:27 PM

No, 32bit only recognizes 4GB of ram.

as i stated before i only want a amd build not intel ?
September 23, 2011 2:54:08 PM

Why would you want an AMD build?
September 23, 2011 3:33:20 PM

for performance/cost and i love amd products
September 23, 2011 5:54:50 PM

AMD is a big behind intel right now, although Buldozer may change that
September 23, 2011 10:35:11 PM

^ Also BD comes at a lower price if the latest news is correct. Another thing although your intel build is good Rohit, the board only supports 1 card as opposed to an AMD build that could fit in a board that supports SLI for that low of a price.
September 23, 2011 11:28:16 PM

Would he want to SLI/CF in a $600 budget?

ok i like the build so i only have to add a blu-ray burner and i want to add i will not be gaming.
September 24, 2011 2:19:50 AM

If you will not be gaming at all, then replace the GPU with a blu ray burner.
September 24, 2011 2:47:42 AM

thats the thing see i will be running Powerdvd 11 to burn and play 3D blu-ray movies
and it requires a good gpu
September 24, 2011 3:45:14 AM

HD 6770 would do... spend the saved money on a br burner.

awesome build but do you think an ssd is needed
September 24, 2011 5:52:50 PM

Why not? If you can afford an SSD, it speeds up loading your most important files and the OS. 10-15 seconds to load windows, smooth manipulation in photoshop and 3D CAD programs, etc. 2 Seconds to load Word.

if you can ScrewySqrl look at the system requirements for this TrueTheater 3D playback and blu-ray 3D

http://www.cyberlinkpowerdvdultra.com/system-requiremen...

this is mainly what it will be using for and web surfing ?
September 24, 2011 10:57:44 PM

the build I posted is WAY ahead of that.
September 27, 2011 6:33:52 AM

^ Llano = NOT AM3+
Llano is FM1, if you want an AM3+ board you're going to look at the AM3/3+ chips.
September 27, 2011 7:25:13 PM

I just updated my price because i came into some extra cash i could use so now i need a new build any suggestions.
