Ecollegepc request.. or should I say, challenge


Nov 18, 2007
This is what I need. Not want, but need:

A desktop from ecollegepc that has:

i5 2500 (not k because I don't plan on overclocking, since I am an oc noob)
SLI motherboard (plan on SLIing in the future)
PSU that will support 2x 580
case that can fit 2x 580
CD Drive/HD

All of this for around 500 dollars. I am probably going to buy the GPU (a 580) from newegg because all ecollegepc can give me is one from a "major brand".. nothing specific.

If someone could pick good parts out for me, since I have no idea what mobo is best for SLI or what PSU is good, I would be eternally thankful.


So, you want a shell of a PC with no GPU or memory for $600 with a decent PSU and case?

For SLId 580s, you need solid PSU (check this link...

3.3Ghz Intel Core i5-2500 6MB Cache Quad-Core
Stock Intel LGA1155 Heatsink and Fan
GIGABYTE GA-H67M-D2-B3 (Intel H67, HDMI, 2xPCI-E, 6xSATA, 2xDDR3)
500GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache Serial ATA300 (Major Brand)
22X LG SATA Dual Layer DVD+/-RW/CDRW w/Nero
Antec Black Nine Hundred (6 5.25, 6 3.5) 4 Fans, Audio/USB/1394
850watt Corsair CMPSU-850TX V2
Onboard LAN included
Onboard Sound included
Wires and Cables neatly tied up away from fans
3 Year Parts and Labor Limited Warranty

Probably the "least" you can go with from your desired site. Way more than $600.
