Default Gaming PC || $700-800 Budget.

First of all I'd like to thank CalcProgrammer1 for his built posted on Need PC Built: ~$1000 Budget I went ahead and bought the built (with some small tweaks) & It's running fantastic.

My IRL has been extremeley jealous because of my new built & He's thinking about also buying a new one, His budget is slightly lower as mine though, he has about $700-800 to spend.

It will be used for gaming; MW2, the upcoming BlackOps & Other games with similiar requirements.

After trying to buy from newegg I found out they don't ship to my country (Belgium), I found my parts at an internet shop here but they're far more expensive than new egg, so I was wondering if tigerdirect ships to Belgium.

Call of Duty games aren't very processor heavy, so for your processor I would recommend Quad Core, and around the 2.5-2.7GHZ speed.

c'mon sean... i think you know a 5830 isn't going to play any game at max settings, then what would be the point of a 5850, 5870, etc .

Default Re: Gaming PC || $700-800 Budget.

They mean exactly the same thing... max and maxed are both short for 'maximised'.

Edit: Actually, I'm wrong there. 'max' is short for maximum. But it still means the same thing :P

I'd cut back the CPU, that's a little unnecessary. Go with a lower 900-series CPU, and get your items in combos (from NewEgg). That'll save you big bucks for upgrades.
For mobo, i'd go with, say, an ASUS M4A89 series. With the combo savings i'd aim for a HD5850 GPU or a better case or SSD/RAID. I don't have the time right now (gotta clean my room) but maybe later i'll see what I can put together.
