  1. id say impossible to fit everything under 550 given the video card after taxes is like 250 which just ate half of your budget up. and you say you need overclocking? cool

    this is the cheapest build you can probably have with decent components

    you could go to a amd phenom rig but it would still be around the 700 dollar mark
  2. I dont need anything super fancy i only need something that can support the 7870 so like a phenom ii x4 or 4gb or ram or a 500gb hard drive
  3. And overclocking also isint a big deal
  4. Also i have an optical drive
  5. having a optical drive doesnt impact your budget at all

    i3 and h61 motherboard combo

    the rest

    it could fit under the 550 mark after these adjustments
  6. the gigabyte 7870 is cheaper

    try to buy everything from ncix as it only costs 5 bucks to get everything shipped
