I built a speedy computer for a business customer onc, it was fast, and it has 2 PCI-E slots for SLI, so this should fit your needs:
CPU(different than what I used because my first one came without a heatsink):
Video Card(different card, same model): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814141018
RAM(dual channel RAM):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16827106992(CD/DVD combo drive)
Case and Power Supply:
Not completely sure the Power Supply is enough, but give it a shot, if it doesnt work, buy a 400W PSU.
Total price: $475.38(American dollars)
As for the building, I will give you some steps:
1. Case Preparation-Remove all Hard drive cages, air ducts, and optical drive bezels.
2. Motherboard preperation-a. Install the CPU, by lifting the lever on the CPU socket, align the triangle on the processor and the socket, gently place the processor, it should drop in wthout any force needed. After that, install your heatsink according to instructions.
b. Install your memory-Insert your memory. To do this, simply align the key on the DIMM slot with the memory's key, and insert it that way. Close the latches in each side. Repeat for every stick of memory.
3. Insert your motherboard into your case-Place the standoffs you got with your case so that when you place your motherboard in, it will fit right in. Next, if necessary, remove the I/O panel(the silver thing where the mouse, keyboard, etc. plug in), and install the I/O panel that came with your motherboard. Next, gently place your motherboard to align with the standoffs, into your case.
4.Cable Connection-For this step, have your cables ready. Insert the 20+4-pin connecter into the power socket on the motherboard. Also place the 4-pin connecter with the motherboard, which adds stability. Also install any FireWire, USB, or other peripheral connection according to the manufacturer's instructions.
5. Install your video card-The video card powers all the display you see on your computer screen. Install this into a PCI-E slot(or other slot, depending on your video card's slot type)and screw in the screw. For AGP video cards, there are no screws. There is a latch on the slot. Close the slot.
6. Install your hard drive- Your hard drive is all the storage on your computer. Install this by taking a hard drive cage, screw in the screws connecting the hard drive cage to the hard drive. Insert the cage into it's place until you hear it *click* into place. Next, connect power and your SATA cable to the hard drive. For IDE hard drive users, set the hard drive jumper to "MA", which stands for Master.
7. Install your optical drives- The optical drives read CD's DVD's and other multimedia. The can also burn your CD's or DVD's for easy storage. To install this, screw the bezels into your optical drive, and insert it onto place. You should hear a *click*. Repeat for floppy drives and other optical drives.
Ok, the building is done. Now we install Windows and some drivers. Windows can cost $96.51 if you buy at ZipZoomFly.
To install Windows, see HERE
Then you're done. If there are any problems, let me know.
ill go with some of the stuff u picked out (though i would rather go wit my processor :-D ) to make a comp aroud 800-1000 and i will ask if theres something wrong besides i have all the time i need till january.......... (cuz vista comes out) ugh its gonna be a long time (about 1 month) till i even order the parts....... i might go wit some of the stuff u picked but im preparing wut to get so far..........
ugh it seems as if ur post is like ...... too cheap >.< i mean like im gonna be playing games like bf2 new battle field coming out and the new medal of honor coming out and world of warcraft(if i can....) (pay freakin 15 $ a month!!!!!!!!) but im gonna start getting a 4$ allowance a week to cover that >.< and im gonna play the game every korean played....., starcraft
i dont think ur build is like powerful enough (no offnce) in my opinion to fit these needs.......................................................
o wait i think that build could fit my needs (but i dislike the case and processor) i think i might go wit that........
i alrdy have my instructions on how to build my comp :-D thx anyway....
Please dont post in more then 1 thing... Just edit previous post if someone hasnt posted yet because it gets quite annoying.
Also your madre thing wants a $1000 computer eh?
If you follow that guide from Techspot your total price will be about... $700 so you have $300 to spend on the most ember-of-ember games out there because that system in that guide can run Oblivion on high
AM2 is good but if you want to get Duo core / extreme core then get LGA 775 but since you're not really needing such high-end processors because you're just gaming and not making some 3D animations like Final Fantasy: Advent Children now are you? :haha:
well,you can get a geforce 7600gs and it work with good fps
Yeah but depends on what gaming he wants to do, If he wants to do Oblivion and from what I have seen from Splintercell Double Agent ( you need a 7900 just to even run the game :haha: ) you'll need a high-end card but if he just does games like Counterstrike then a 7600 would be good
You don't seem to understand this bighead(kor) eh?
Madre is mom or mother in Spanish
I think he should go with a 4000+ along with sw123 post.
Oh... Madre = Mom
You're so smart Wolfram :haha:
I'm mexican TimeParadoX. I must know what a Madre is lol
Well I live in texas so yeah... Im cool :haha:
I am Mexian/White but I know no spanish. My last name is Lopez, but I don't look really Mexican....strange.....
What a surprise CrossFire851, my last name is Lopez too
OK here is a design:
AMD Athlon 64 FX
Evga K8N-A Socket 939 motherboard
Thermaltake socket 939 heatsink for AMD Athlon 64 FX
nVidia GeForce 8800 PCI-E(when it comes out, supports DX10)
Eagle something-something case with 400w psu(hope its enuf) :laugh:
2048 MB(2 GB) OCZ premium RAM
Creative SB Audigy PCI sound card.
That should play games nicley, however AMD Athlon 64 FX's cost $800 :laugh:
Got a link to the new GeForce 8800, really pricey though, but apparently, it cant be maxed out for a long time....should last until 2054 :laugh: Link is HERE
I'd choose the Core 2 E6600 over any AMD 64 FX. Higher performance, less cost.
My first name is Richard, but everyone calls me Rick. Cheers
lol nice :-D
ummmmm i heard that the intel core 2 dou like owns (as in wut u get for the cost) most of the amd processors.... UGH this is gonna be a hard descision, can everyone.... like come up with one FINAL post?
yea and madre= mom in spanish
I learned that in school ^^
:-DDDDDDDDDDDDD (no i dont have that many chins)
plz ppl i need a post from the SMARTEST here so i guess we are supposed to do a battle royal......
Sad to say being an AMD fan, but the core2duo are the best.
lol sw123 you just went from cheapish and little low to -> A MONSTER of a gaming machine......
2014$....... overpriced >.< i still need around 1000-1200 and also i love my $1330 build :-D ^^ it seems so sexy I Love u all (as brothers)
rite now im pretty sure im gonna go wit my 1330$ post ...... if any of u have any add ons or wanna give advice go ahead
and im not that sure if everything will work if i try building my computer.... :-l
if i have technical issues when i build it u could always ask tech spot :-D
just to keep my thread on top.... MAY THIS THREAD RULE ALL~!!!!
Poor Howard lol :haha: How many times did you edit his posts :haha:
Yeah I know wolfram, This guy bighead(kor) guy double post like 789645312897465128764312876431528674531278653197865317864531.50 times
:-D and i love my self fopr that...
Yeah, so have you got the computer yet? If you have, Does it run good or is it not like you expected?
If you need more help with a gaming system then just send me a private message or something and i'll help you with it
