Hi on the 25th i am looking into getting another pc looking to get something half way decent that can play some games is all ..have a budget around $600 would like a flat panel monitor to go with it also if not no biggie..if you have something in this line hit me up and lets talk thanks..
I have a custom build I built strictly for my brother, and he is never able to use it.
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 2.4GHz Socket 939 89W Single-Core Processor
Thermaltake CL-P0257 Blue orb II CPU Cooler for LGA775 & K8
ASUS A8V-E SE 939 VIA K8T890 ATX AMD Motherboard
APEVIA X-CRUISER-RD Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model VS1GBKIT400
Sony NEC Optiarc Combo Drive Black IDE Model CRX320EE/B2S
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3802110A 80GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive
I have two Video Card option for you:
ATI X700 Pro 256MB
BFG 7900 GT OC
Core 2 Duo (E2180) Overclocked to 3 Ghz with a Hyper TX Cooler and MX-1 Paste
2 Gigs ddr2-800 running at ddr2-900 High Performance Gaming Memory Crucial Ballistix
250 Gig Western Digital SATA2 Harddrive
BFG 7900 GT Overclocked
Sound Blaster Audigy SE
Looking for $700 for it. I have a 17 inch Flat Panel Samsung monitor also, but that'd be extra.
This computer can play 99% of games out there with full graphics.
I think he could ($500), though it depends on how serious you are. How would you want to pay for the PC?
I can get some pics, at some point for you. I just need to get over to his place. It is a good PC, though. He has taken good care of it. He got it from Ibuypower a couple years ago. I am pretty sure it is this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But it is in RED. It has some blue cathodes in it. Also, I forgot to add it has an SB Audigy card in it (though which one, I am not sure of).
here are the specs:
# CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 1.83 Ghz
# Motherboard - Intel DP965LT Classic Series (with CDs)
# RAM - Patriot 2 GB (2 x 1 GB) DDR2 667
# Video Card - 3D Fuzion Nvidia Geforce 7600GS 256MB PCI-E
# Power Supply Unit - ThermalTake PurePower 2.0 12V 500W
# Case - Antec SuperLANBoy (comes with extra screws)
# Hard Drive - 160 GB SATA/150
# Optical Drive - BENQ DW1620 (Can write: CD-R / CD-RW / DVD+R / DVD-R / DVD-RW / DVD+RW / DVD+R Dual Layer)
# Sound Card (optional) - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE (if you prefer to use integrated sound instead and have the ability to use the case front panel audio ports, I will take this part out and knock $20 off the price. Please include your decision this during or before payment)
(the reason the list is so sophisticated is because it's also up on ebay (with a different video card, however), but no one's bought it yet)
I'll go with the price of $500. No monitor however. I can install a fresh (genuine) copy of Windows XP Professional
