BF2 isn't as demanding as people think...with Catalyst 5.8 drivers I run it at 1280x1024, 4x AA without a problem on my X800 Pro with 1GB of RAM.

My neighbor is thinking about a $1000 build too.

How would this be guys?

case - 75
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811133147


mobo - 119
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813136152

video card - 300
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130215

PSU - $113
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16817103462

processor - 190
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103535

ram - 110
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820227031

HDD- 89
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822148034

burner - 39
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16827152047

$1,035.87 w/o shipping and I think that with that mobo, ram, and processor you will be able to do some damn good overclocking, plus you'll have a spare PCI-E slot so a PC like this should last years for even a big gamer because a lotta people have OC'd the 3200 to FX-55 speeds.

you should look at the 6600gt only because i personally think that spending 300 dollars on a vid card is quite extravagent (but hey thats just me) prolly 1 gb (2 x 512mb) corsair or kingston at least 433mhz? memory is important. cpu you should go for AMD 64 3200+ any over is really not worth the extra speed for the cost. (you wont see any noticeable difference). Personally i also like MSI K8N Neo4 not Neo4-F thats the entry level one. its a socket 939 board. if you follow my specs you could prolly get away with about 400-500 shipped.

Are the X2 cpu worth it now? also would two 6800gt in sli run better then one 7800gtx? are most the newer nivida cards sli compatible? so later on down the road when they get cheaper I could upgrade with another one? Thanks Scott.
