Nice gaming rig *LIMITED BUDGET*

Hi guys I'd like to build my first machine. I can't spend too much on it. Preferably 300$, nothing more than 600$. I'd REALLY like it if it was under 500$. I want to be able to game at 30+ FPS on high or at least medium. I also photoshop, which isn't a big deal if I can't do any on it. I currently posses 2 Radeon HD 5670;

PowerColor AX5670 1GBK3-H Radeon HD 5670 Video Card- PCIe 2.1
and
XFX HD-567X-ZNL3 Radeon HD 5670 Video Card PCIe 2.0

Was wondering if I needed something better than that, if not AMD crossfire motherboard is preferred so I can utilize both of my GPU.

So yeah, 300$-600$ preferably nothing more than 500$, more like 400$ but what ever.

    I'm assuming since you have those cards you also have a DVD Drive and Hard Drive you can use. If not you'll need to add that in.

    If you want you can leave out the card I added and use your two in crossfire. I'm not sure how they will perform though. The 6850 will have no problems with high settings and is a good crossfire option if you need more power later on.
  3. Thank you :D, luckily I also have an 800w diablo tek, so I can use that yeah?
  4. I don't know much about that brand but it should be sufficient. Use the money saved to buy a hard drive if you need one.
