Well, not sure if anybody remembers me, but I used to be on here quite a bit about 5 or 6 years ago, I did the theme song for the 2006 Forum Warz, have been out of the PC game for a while but am probably putting a budget build together soon since tax time approaches! Probably going to be a $600 system as I am not the money splurging enthusiast I used to be..... My last build was an Opteron 1.8 dual core overclocked to 3Ghz with a s4*t ton of goodies, and 7800GT's in SLI and had about $2k in that system in 2005 maybe? Anyways, now days the cheapest build out there with a $70 video card walks all over that thing so it is just sitting in the closet collecting dust, and am now using a Pentium e5800 Dell ($399 special over a year ago) with an HD6670 in it, does okay for the free to play stuff, but good games do NOT fair well.... I am now thinking about going with an A10 5800k on an A75 board and pairing it with the 6670 I already have. I know this is not an optimal setup, but I am seeing people run the games I want to play such as BF3 and Crysis 2 at very playable setting on 1080P display ( will be using a 40" LCD) Just a note, I am considering using my old OCZ Modstream 720w PSU from my old rig, thoughts on that? Also, may re-use the NZXT Nemesis Elite case too!!! hahaha, anybody remember that one? Any thoughts would be much appreciated!!! Glad to be back!!
