The ultimate gaming rig - 10/23/04 08:35 AM

i am throing out my other idea of building a pc with the parts i originaly listed. now i have made 1000$ to spend on this rig what i need from u readers is help on makeing a list checking it twice. imean everything ineed all the parts from cpu to ram to monitor to mouse and key board. just give me a price for each part adn where to get it . why i should use it in my ultimate rige and if it is afordable. what i have in mind is a amd processor at least a 3200+ 512 or more ram 120 gb hd and a 17in monitor every thing else is up to you readers when we are done geting all the parts listed and the cost under 1000 i will buy all the parts build this rig. i will take picures of it and show what we have made then i will preforme the ultimate benchmarks. so lets get to work

ps i also need help to find a cheap windows xp pro vender less than 200$

I suggest pricewatch.com for what you are looking for. You can find all your parts cheap. Tiger direct is also a good resource.

NewEgg is good; I use them above tiger direct as they tend to be cheaper and offer more affordable shipping options

newegg has lower prices than tiger for the most part every time i looked something up. the only thing tiger has cheaper that i noticed was monitors if i remember correctly.
I personally like the AMD Processors. I do video editing on 2800+ 32 bit Athlon. 1 GIG of ram pc2700 min is a must. Separate drives is nice but a single 160gig 7200 will do. I've only Used Nivida for gpx so you would have to take that up with some one else.

I bought from one store recently, horrid experiances; I'll post more later though (and names) should they decide they don't want to refund me...

I'm sure they'll take a look at this post soon to realise I wasn't fucking around when I said that I'd slander them all over the interweb ...

fair

As I mentioned before, computergeeks.com has some nice pricing. Newegg is still a very nice choice though.

I've got an 8 in one device I'm planning on buying from computergeeks.com shortly (Floppy Disk drive with a built in card reader); but I still feel better ordering shit from NewEgg.com as they've served me well for many years past ..

The device is here btw. They also have a pretty good deal ($60) on a 1gb SD card
