Could any of you PC Guru's recommend a good gaming rig build for under $1000? I don't need a monitor. Also when you recommend the build are you sure it all goes together fairly easily?
Or i could go this route:
Newegg.com - iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 968i Intel Core i7 920(2.66GHz) 3GB DDR3 500GB NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Desktop PCs
Any suggestions most welcome thanks!
I found this:
Sub $1K i7 barebones
"i7 920: $270
MSI X58 Pro: $191 - $20MIR
OCZ Platinum 6GB 1600mhz: $120 - $50MIR
ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB: $198
WD Caviar Black 80GB: $80
Total: $860 - $70MIR"
Actually this seems a little too hardcore. I need an OS and DVD, etc. And the HD is only 80gb?
Sorry about the triple orginal posts. Mybad. Thanks for the replies. Any thoughts on the newegg/iBUYPOWER ready built that i linked? Overpriced? Slower than the duo core e8500 for gaming?
