Well, first off Im not sure how much I´ll be spending on this. It´s really up to my younger brother as it´ll be his. But I´m guessing around a 1000us. (I said around, so I expect deviations.)
And of course you can have a budget gaming machine. It´s not going to be hard core, but it isn´t going to be a text machine either.
I was thinking of a 8600GT, but if I wait a little longer for the G95 to come out, the 8800GTS will be a lot cheaper.
This is what I have decided on so far, recomendations would be great.
AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ 3.0ghz
Corsair Twin 2x 6400 DDR2 total 2048mb CL5 kit
Asus M2M32-SLi Delux, NForce 590 SLi
Samsung Spinpoint T166 500gb SATA2 16mb 7200rpm
NorthQ 400watt psu
GeForce 8800GTS (bought after the G95 comes out)
