Default Another build

Got a budget of 300$ this time.

I need RAM, CPU, Motherboard, and RAM and a case.

Its a tight budget, to tight for me to build, so I need you guys to help me out.
I have the video card, and the PSU already.
The PSU is 550W.

You said ram twice. Did you mean you needed a hard drive or something?

Well case is personal choice but I would try and go cheapish ($50 or less) to have good components on the inside.

Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops Intel e5200 $73

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP43-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards Gigabyte ep43 $80

Newegg.com - OCZ SLI-Ready Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory OCZ ddr2 800 sli 2x2gb $51 - $20mir

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases Antec 300 $50

So you got a total of $254 - $20mir. If thats all you needed I would probably grab a Sunbeam core contact heatsink and fan or maybe upgrade the cpu to e7300 but the e5200 is a great deal.

If you did need a hdd then maybe go for

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500410AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives Seagate 7200.12 500gb $65 which would put the total at $299 after the rebate. If you did need the hdd also and can't go over a intial $300 then you can just drop to 2gb, find a different case, use a smaller hard drive, whatever fits you best.

Default Re: Another build

Well what is the computer for? If its for gameing then you could stick with what I posted and add

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards Sapphire 4850 $125 - $15mir (use code EMCABCHAH )

I normally suggest a 500w OCZ stealth since their good and really cheap but they seem to be out of stock so I would spend a bit more and get a
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer PPCS500 500W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies Pc Power and Cooling 500w $70-$20. (or you can spend a little more because after rebate they have good deals on 610w - 750w but thats over kill.)

And do buy the core contact if you were going to overclock which I suggest you do
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks $40 - $10mir

Add in a dvdrw ~$25.

So you would have ~$580 - $65mir. Maybe grab a couple 120mm fans for the case. If your comfortable with $600 after rebate then you could jump up to a 4870 but its a big price jump.
