WTB: E8400 or Q6600, 2-4GB DDR3 RAM, HD4870 or GTX 260, Combo is Best!
I've been around the forums and the site for a while and i like it, just posted now for the first time.
I need a system upgrade and now is the time for me to do it. I have a DDR3 motherboard already that I'm going to use, so I need the rest of the components to make the computer complete.
CPU: E8400 or Q6600 (maybe Q8200 or Q9300 - depends on price) RAM: 4GB (hoping) of DDR3 RAM even if it's 1333MHz, but 1600MHz is ideal, depends on price. Video Card: Radeon HD4870 or GTX 260. At this point they're so close that I'm going for the best deal I can find on either one - yeah in some way I'm hopeful for a 4870, but really the better value is more important.
I just so happened to have a Diamond HD Radeon 4870 1GB GDDR5 that i bought and used for about a month before i upgraded to the X2 version. i could part with it for around $250 plus shipping. Hit me back @ Christopher.Tiemann @ gmail.com
