Hello,

I am looking to build a gaming rig
looking for these specs:
PHENOM X4 9600 at 2.4ghz
3GB RAM DDR2
Ati Radeon 4870 512mb version
800 Gb harddrive
Case+mouse+keyboard

what prices should i be expected to pay..
I am asking this because my "friend" said he can get me those parts for dirt cheap
but I am nvoice at this stuff.. so could you give me an idea of how much does this currently cost?

Also, should I wait for prices to go down ... because I can wait untill September..
but I do not want to wait just for a $50-100 price drop..

thanks in advance

The phenom x1 chips are pretty crappy compared to the x2 aren't they?

Why don't you post the prices of each of the items he is recommending...he probably can't get em dirt cheap :sarcastic:
 
Phenom serial numbers ending in 00 are bottom end quads and best avoided for gaming .


Look online for prices at www.newegg.com


or give us a budget and we can suggest components . Make sure you tell what its going to be used for , and if you already have a monitor, windows etc etc
