Default Well it's off to the races again New Build Time :)

So I built my intel system. Yay! Now I want to see if it's worth building an AMD system to have some fun with. Just wondering what you guys would recommend for it. I'm prob going to have a 800-1000$ budget so yeah. Any ideas?

Thanks

IMO you should build a lanbox, unless you already have one.

My System Specs

Default

Well I just built 2 new AMD machines I use mostly for heavy work but they are also good gaming rigs :D

ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
Athlon 64 x2 5600+ 2.8Ghz / 2MB L2 (if you are LUCKY to still get your hands on those 2MB Windsors)
4GB Corsair DHX Dual Channel kit
BFG 8800GT OC 512MB
SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatality Xtreme Gamer Professional series

(if you have more $ you can get the M2N32 SLI which supports 2 x x16 SLI)

Do you have EVEREST Ultra maybe we can compare our scores if you'd like :D
