OtterFox Posted November 17, 2006 Share Posted November 17, 2006 OPTION A $120-Athlon 64 3000+ $100-AM2 mobo $120-2*512 of the cheapest ram $230-7600GT $175-320GB HDD $070-case and PSU off trademe $815=total option A OPTION B $170-Intel Pentium D 805 2.6GHz Dual Core(upgrade to conroe later and buy a HSF) $250-LGA755 mobo(a good one for that $$) $230-2*512=1GB Corsair Value Select Dual Channel memory kit $230-7600GT(until 8600GT comes out) $175-320GB HDD $150-PSU $050-case $1255=total option B note-prices in NZ dollars Wrong with my current rig you ask? Well first, it isnt mine its Dad's and... my Dad has become a control freak and I now have a limited account. I also want my own rig because I want to be able to play games, code, ect all holidays(NZ holidays have prety much started) instead of just afternoons(not allowed on in morning) and then I can take it to mates houses and play with him. -Option A would be until halfway through next year when I would build something about the price of option B. Then I could turn it into a linux box, file server or a media center(then sell to Dad maybe because he just burns DVDs at the moment. expected gaming life 1 year. -Option B would be upgraded until its not economical to upgrade when it to would become a linux box or server expected gaming life, 2-3 years(with upgrades). I also intend to buy a cheap laptop sometime in the first half to next year and just use it for Linux. I have $400 now and when exams are finished in two weeks I can earn $100 a week. edit: Please post any other ideas and why you voted for each option.
