SLI does NOT make sense in an $800 system. SLI is only worth it with high-end GPUs (7900GT or higher); two 7600GTs in SLI will be beaten by a single 7900GT; two 7600GS' in SLI will (probably) be beaten by a single 7600GT.build from scratch. i'm looking to spend bout up to 800 bucks.
AMD suckss , dont go AMD , stick with Intel , their the best , and Nvidia.
Does it? Last time I have checked, DDR2 was cheaper than DDR (but I might be wrong).Unfortunately, with only $800., you probably aren't going to get two video cards. A 939 sytem is about all you'll probably be able to afford, but don't worry about that. 939 systems are still plenty fast. Conroe or AM2 would require DDR2 ram, which would totally blow your budget.
stats have shown that the C2D beat the AMD processors are everysingle benchmark by at least 20% ,and Intels have always had superior Architectures then to AMD.
AMDs have been known to perform really badly and over heat alot.
Here's the best system I could come up with on your budget. The E6300 runs about what a FX60 does on games so its your best CPU for the money. You'll pay $190 for this CPU.i'm building a gameing comp, its my first build. i picked out an intel mobo i might buy and a amd mobo as well. i want sli so both are nvidia chipsets, but should i get the core 2 or amd X2? any suggestions on mobos and video cards would be helpfull.
