I’m trying to build a relatively inexpensive gaming rig for about $600 or so (I already have a few parts, that’s why that number is so low). I’m not including an OS in that price. I would ideally like to be able to play games along the lines of Half Life 2 and Oblivion - but not necessarily with all the bells and whistles like AA and AF, et cetera. Any suggestions regarding the parts or whether the entire system is compatible would be deeply appreciated! Here’s what I have for pieces so far: Case + PSU: Antec Sonata II (with 450 PSU). Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Monitor: 20’ Olevia LCD Have cheapo speakers. Decent keyboard and mouse. Have a card/floppy drive reader. DVD drive. This is what I’m thinking of buying, for about $550 (-$40 MIR): Motherboard: ABIT KN9 ULTRA Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813127008, currently for 76.99 Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2.2GHz Socket AM2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103747, currently for $183 Memory: CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145568, currently for $106 Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16814143070, currently for $184.99 - $40 MIR = $149.99 (eventually) Thanks!
