Re: Gameing rig that doesn't break the bank;

I think if I were to do a build on the cheap right now. I might wait just a few days for the new AMD FX chips to come out. It seems they just might have something for Intel price to performance wise. Yea competition! That build seems a little steep to me for an i5 rig.

I really hope that's the case. I mean, the whole build will be a bit cheaper than a SB i7 system, I just hope the performance is there (i.e. - great overclocking, otherwise it won't touch SB).

Is there an official date yet, I can't wait to read some real reviews! The motherboards should be rock solid, since the processor is ~ 3 months late.

Re: Gameing rig that doesn't break the bank;

I think you'd be pressed very hard to build one better than this. I would buy it in a heartbeat if I didn't already own five homemade PC's.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-371-_-Product

Re: Gameing rig that doesn't break the bank;

Well I actually just this laptop:

Intel Core i7-960 3.2-3.4Ghz Processor
Innovation Cooling IC Diamond 24 Carat for CPU + GPU
8GB 1333Mhz RAM (2x 4GB Configuration)
500GB 7200rpm Seagate Hard Disk
nVidia Geforce GTX560M 1.5GB GDDR5

it's definitely a bank breaker, but the way it runs games is just a thing of beauty! I do however recommend the company I got it from (it's called Horize), you can customize your laptop to fit your budget. I agree with SpeedDMN, AMD is the way to go.

Re: Gameing rig that doesn't break the bank;

I believe Sirs rig cost is close to all five of mine put together, but let me explain as you are kind of new here. First I am the cheap builder and Sir gets all top shelf parts. The build in my sig = $1,000.00US

You're welcome...
I really don't keep up with the cost as I'm always upgrading. I'd
guess some where between 4k and 5k for the complete rig.
Add monitors over 6K, mice, key boards, speakers, misc...
Somewhere around 7k....all these numbers are guessaments.

That's about the number I was guessing. I think two years from now, even if you stop upgrading, your system will still be ranking in the top. How does it feel working with 32GB RAM? I'm also thinking of investing in memory.
