Budgetr PC
 
I'm looking to get a new PC, but I have only $800 to get it. I could manage $900, but would really rather cheaper. I know I'm not going to be getting top of the line for this price, but please post a possible build. I am wanting the best possible gaming rig within my price range. I do not need mouse/keyboard/monitor/ect, on the main computer parts.

Thanks

That's got to be as good as you can get for $800 and that's pretty darn nice. Well done!

lol...I have a lot of builds based on budget, in a folder....and I will change them according to the specifics, the person wants. If he wants a system with a monitor, I'll adjust the budget to include one.

I have one for low-priced C2D, mid-priced C2D $1k, 1k+, $1500, $1500+, etc...Gotta work on AM2 builds though.

Oh...I'm always lookin' to update the lists. Like I just added the P35-DS3R to all the mid-priced C2Ds, along with the MSI P6N Platinum, for the option of SLI.
