Hey guys, looking to get a gaming desktop as my laptop is becoming a bit outdated.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within a few months..
Budget Range: up to $400
System Usage: gaming, video and image editing, surfing internet
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, graphics card
I have a GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB already, so that will be fine for a while, (just make sure it will fit in case, lol)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: any trusted, newegg, amazon, tigerdirect, etc
Parts Preferences: full tower case, at least 3ghz quad core, at least 6-8gb ram, motherboard with extra ram slots, also need a cheap copy of windows 7
This ram should work well, unless there is lower price or any better: Corsair Vengeance
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Additional Comments: Like stated above, want a good gaming and editing computer
Clarification: I have 2 of the 8800 cards to use. I also have xp to use if that lowers price. I do minor editing, heavy gaming, but i'm all about performance, not looks/quality. I can go get a better gpu later, and for when i get a newer card, I wont need sli, so I don't need the power for two new gpus, I think i'll be fine with only one of the 8800s too, if that helps you guys find parts.
