Default Re: Need help with first gaming computer build?

Thanks Muffin Man.

I am concern about the Mobo that you gave me, it doesn't come with SLI and CrossFire does it? I want to find the right mobo for me that doesn't have any needed extra I don't need like the mobo I pick.

I don't know if the 100 dollar extra price tag is worth it for the 5870.

I also got a few more build I am looking at including your, maybe you can help me find which one would be best, this is from other people suggestion from other forums. Sorry to bother you. I just want to get this as right as possible. So that I can spent the least amount of money for all the parts I need.

ok, so ive reworked my suggested build a little.

Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners

totals $1,034 + shipping.

i didnt really know how much you would be willing to spend on a gfx card, and you said that this rig would be strictly for gaming, thats why i had originally listed a 5870, currently the best single-gpu gfx card out. plus it fit in your budget.

but if you just dont like the idea of dropping that much on it, the 5850 is still a beast gfx card.

now with these parts, you will be able to go crossfire. the psu would be more than enough to handle another card, cpu OCing, and additional hdds, among other things.

and about the hdd, do you mean if you could use your external hdd as your main hdd (where you will have the OS)?
