Default $6-700 gaming

I was wanting to make a gaming comp for like 700 without monitor and small accesories. If I build this thing around a 256mb 6800gt pciX what would be the min stuff i could get to play BF2 and high graphical games on all setttings with high framerate?

um you can't do that

3000+ would be like $160? a mobo would be $120 a 6800GT would be $350 a gig of cheap but good twinmos ram would be $80

that's over your budget already and you haven't got a case, optical, hard drive, PSU

you can't except a decent card with a small budget, it just won't happen

Sorry you cannot do that


AND IT"S PCI-E NOT PCI-X, PCI-X IS A 64 BIT PCI SLOT BASED AROUND SERVERS TO GET FASTER NETWORK CARD SPEEDS. PCI-E IS A HIGH SPEED INTERFACE TO CONNECT GRAPHICS CARDS.
