1 tb caviar black hard drive
asus optical drive
nh-d14 cpu cooler
MSI big bang xpower motherboard

I don't have a birthday. I ripped open my mom's stomach with my bare hands after only 3 months into the pregnancy. I slapped the nurse's ass, then I strutted out that hospital. LIKE. A. MAN
While you call that a budget, I call that "I have enough money to build the best gaming rig on the market right now." I know that you can easily go over $2200, but honestly that's enough money to build a computer that can play every game out right now at max settings. I could buy a $2200 PC, but I actually want to use it some before summer is over.
why does he need that much power...a single 6970 is more than capable at running most games at max/very high settings...unless i am wrong?
Yes, but it keeps him from having to make upgrades in the future. I once met a guy with a 6K budget, oh the fun watching that build develop :biggrin.gif:. It had a i7 2600K with a Z68, a agility 3 SSD, 16 GB of ram and duel GTX 570's.
