  1. I could have sworn i saw someone post about a x850gt, but idk bcuz i googled the card, every site was forgien, or if i search "x850 gt" i would only get the known x850 cards. So am i just talking out of my butt or what? I heard that it was better than the 6600gt and cheaper. But idk, and if it is a card, when is the "release"date. Thanks a bunch ~Ham
  2. Totally not in ur budget but new and not on ebay http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-...asin=B0002MJGGA do a google and -ebay in the search.
  3. lol, that was a good scence, but it that really what they called it? Too bad that wasn't a funny/cool as Billy Madison. Beside the point, give me the scope for ATI's mobo chipsets in lamest terms.
  4. What about Macs? lol, I would totally game on the G5 Mac my parents just bought. Too bad Blizzard is the only company that makes "good" games for it. Any other companies that make good games for the OS X? I don't really know of any at the moment. O well, i guess windows is just as good..... O ya, I'm a Nvidia kind of guy just because they have better mobo chipsets(i'm pretty sure they do, haven't heard of anyone brag about their DFI ati chipset mobo) but the ATI x850GT (i think thats the name) looks pretty nice compared to the 6600GT i'm thinking about getting. None the less, ati and nvidia will "dook" it out w/ the new SLI/CrossFire cards they have/working on. my $.03 And eldiablo10 have you tried a ATI card? PS. I think we pretty much got the idea that you like Nvidia over ATI
  5. sry, I have already found the answer in another post, sry for the [email protected]#$ up on my part. http://forums.overclockersclub.com/Sli_Or_...Sli-t55032.html
  6. Its that easy? um, i thought they all the wires to the mobo and its all confusing and crap. ok i'll go w/ the rosewill idea, i found one w/ a PS and i'll take that out. and put in the suggested one. thanks a bunch. o ya, i'll have about $140 every month now, so my "ghetto" rig will be here soon. BTW, should i order piece by piece or all together?
  7. Thanks guys, I've just never put in a power suppy before and I'm a little..... nervous about putting in the "heart". I have about a $100 budget for the case and the PS. Like I said before, I don't need anything flashy at all and would like to buy at new egg. ANY brands that I should stay away from or good brands I should look in to(besides the ones listed already). Or if you guys already know what I can get for 100 bucks give me the link. Oh ya, if anyone knows where i can get an old Apple G3 or a G4 case, that would be pretty sweet and I wouldn't mind spending more money for that. But I just took a look at my parents old G3 and the power suppy looked small, so I don't know if "PC" parts would even fit inside. But you know, whatever, and hit me up with so good links guys.
  8. Thats about it. Need a decent case w/ a PS, need a link, would like to buy through new egg. Need to run a 6600GT APG8x, 1gb ram, eVGA Nf3 250gb, and a 80gb hardrive. And a Sempron 3000+ skt 754. I found a couple but idk. Doesn't need to be flashy but I don't really want white/beige. PS. I'm not going to overclock at all.
  9. Ok i want a gaming rigg and this is what i pick out. I'm on a very small budget as you can see and I won't be overclocking at or little at all. I don't mind at all having a stock power supply plus it had good reviews on newegg.com(how reliable though?) And semi-generic parts are fine w/ me. Already got a hard drive and optic drives and i have a 5.1 sound card. Speakers/Keyboard/mouse already have.

  10. O no way, I might get a glossy spray paint and do that b4 i shove everything in. But that would be the must of it. Anything. the DFI mobo supports a Athlon 64, the processor I want to get is a sempron? is it it the same thing. O ya, my mom just order 2 G5 makes w/ 3 gigs of ram. I'll tell you guys when we get em. Man, that would be cool it have a PC inside a Mac case.
  11. Well that sucks something awful, its pretty good looking case too. Heres another one w/ a lot of good reviews. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16811154017
  12. K after a crap load of editing, i think i got it. Look a couple replies up.
  13. Alright I have it. Its decent and i'll be able to keep up w/ my friends that play WoW, CS:S, and AA:SF, and when we all get BF-2.

I went w/ the 754 bcuz I think its cheaper and i wanted the DFI mobo just bcuz of the good things i have hear about it. Tell me if there is anything better for the same ammount of money and just set it like how i did. I don't think there is though all that for $561.99. The tax is shipping is about $70 bucks. What it have been cheaper if I bought a bare bones system?>
  14. lol, i sorta am, i should have done more research b4 posting the other one, plus i wanted any man's opinion, no offense, but i think i have figured it out, Now I just need to save money and buy it as soon as i can. And i have also got rid of the Barebone idea, bcuz its cheaper to build it myself, i didn't think it was but a lot of ppl helped. Team effort, lol. Plus I don't know too much about computers in General, i know little pieces and stuff. LIke i didn't know that bundled PSU suck that come w/ cases. I wouldn't have not known any better.
  15. Those are some wicked cases, but everything i am ordering is on newegg.com, and idk about going out of my way to try a new site, i have never heard of, plz no user reviews.
  16. Hey what case to you pick out? all the cases i'm looking at suck. I found one it was like $30 but it looked .....dorky? idk how to explain the un-coolness of this case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16811154017 Whats the difference in the DFI mobo and the MSI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813130491
  17. Thats exactly it, don't don't need a killer rig, I don't want to save money bcuz i'm sick of this piece or [email protected]#$ dell, my mom gave me. I'm on PCI(not express) i can play CS and Startcraft.....thats about it. I tried Warcraft III and AA:SF, i couldn't play those i doubt i can play BF2 or HL2 w/ a MX 4000. Which is why i'm asking for some much help. Plus I want to make sure everything works for sure. This is my first setup so I'm fallowing like 10 different guides so i don't mess it up.
  18. I would like for you to make out a layout w/ everything(754 or 939, what ever you use or like the most) except that stuff i already have. If you can't thats cool too, but It would really help me. And who knows I might be OCing if i know for sure The worst that happens is that my computer shuts down and reboots normally. I wish I could pay you guys moeny for this information. this board has been the most helpful about systems and stuff.
  19. WEll good news is I have a 30gb hard drive already to get me started and I have my dell cd-rw and dvd, (nec and lite-on) and have a keyboard/mouse/beefy 5.1 surround speakers/Aopen 5.1 sound card. SO basicly all I need is a decent mobo754, guys i'm sry, but i it sounds like a 939 is over kill for me. BUt a mobo $100, PSU $75-125, Case (something rly simple not into lights and crap $50-75, ram, i have 2x 256 but i want a gig or a 512 stick30-Refurb 1gig rosewill. and I might need a floopy $5-15 and the best part i think is .... a 6600GT for less than $150. I think thats adds to $600.......ahh crap the processor $150.....*drum roll plz*..... dang that like $825, maybe i'll find a dcent processor cheap that 150, maybe like $85, i doubt it but who knows. Thanks a bunk cchalogamer, you helped a lot breakingin it down in noobie language Edit: I wanted PCI-express for sure, but no sign of a DFI mobo, what other mobos are 754 and have pci-express? Edit #2:I search socket 754 w/ PCI-EXpress 16x and found like 8, someone just pick one out thats the best, I can afford all of them on the search page. I have 2x 256 and some of them would be good if i got a stick of 1gig, or would it just be cheaper to use a brand new 1gig stick than mix match old/new ram
  20. I don't plan to OC it at all, maybe in the next rig i build, i'm afiard I'm gonna break this bcuz money is tight.($40 bucks week + odd jobs) I saw they make a 939/754 boards, those any good? I found a CHAINTECH VNF4 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard, what is the most reliable mobo. I've heard a lot of good things about Asus and what does the chipset do for porformance and which ones are decent/good. What kind of power supply should i look into? a 400 or a 450 wat? or higher? And what kind of PCI-Express card is decent for under $150 and plz don't tell me to save up for the 6800GT ultra or w/e the Badest model outthere. I should tell you I still play SC and I only plan on playing maybe BF-2 since HL-2 in coming for xbox\360
  21. I'm not quite where to begin. I'm starting to build a budget gaming system under $600 so price is important. But I also what to be able to play Doom III, HL-2, and BF-2. So far I picked out 1 gig of ram, APEX PC-115 Beige Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 350W Power Suppl, ELSA GLADIAC A660GT 128B3 DTV Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X, ASUS K8N Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard. The processor must work w/ mobo of course and needs to be better than my P celeron 1.8ghz(my a dell ). I'm grateful for any help, and it possible have link for processor. RIght now all my parts are coming through newegg.
  22. Well riddle me this, whats better, agp 8x or pci-express 16x? pci i think yes? so in "theory" shouldn't the 6600 be better than the agp 6600gt? another thing is , how much better is pci-express than agp 8x?
  23. 6600? If this isn't find me a 6600 for under $150, i don't care at if it refurb or not. New egg has a crapload of them and other decent(i think) PCI-express cards. And plz don't tell me he to save and get a 6800 GT w/ w/e ram. I'm saving up for this along w/ a barebone. I already have 512 ram, i need a gig, already have harddrive, monitor and keyboard/mouse and cables. I was also was wondering if I could just buy a semi-cheap system and customize it to what are need and "take" out what i already have. Almost like http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...22269&CatId=335 get a decent vid card and more ram and presto!. Could I play HL-2 and BF 2 on that? PS. I don't rly want to build the whole system, looks like too much work, and I wan't this at least under $600
  24. Alright I have decided to buy a decent computer. I have a Dell(it was a Xmas gift, I had no controll) And I have a PCI Generic Audio 5.1 Card(It was cheap and it works) and 2 x 256 ram and a 30 gig Harddrive. I really want everything eles i need inside the computer. I'll most likely drop maybe $150 on a video card after I'm done owing my mother. I have a no idea what the different sockets are and would like at least 768 ram. I don't plan on OC'ing at all. I need a computer that can handle at least Half-LIfe 2 w/ 800x600 or higher. I come from a dirt cheap computer, a Dell that has a PCI(not express) card. I have play SC and CS...........Thats about it. I don't really feel confident about putting the complicated parts in. (power suppy, processor, motherboard) I'm greatful for anyhelp offered. My budget is under $500. PS. I did a search on the forums for this kind of thing, nothing was really found, give me link if there is a similar post
