75% is still a C right? Here's April's $500 Dollar PC Rig.
Mobo: Foxconn H67S LGA 1155 Intel H67 $59.99
Cpu: Intel Core i3-2120 $115
Ram: Patriot Signature 4 GB PC3-10600 $22
Gpu: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6850 $135 (with rebate)
Psu: Cooler Master Elite 460W $21 (with rebate)
Tower: Cooler Master RC-343-KKN1 Elite 343 $36
Total Cost: $512
Looking back : I feel pumped duders and you should be too! The main theme of the build this month is "price drop". The Tower, Pus, Cpu, and Mobo have all decreased in price. Plus, did you see that sexy 1TB harddrive?!?! This is the first $500 dollar rig to feature this beast. My hope is that it likes what it sees and stays a while. The release of the next gen of graphics cards means that discounted cards of the previous generation are ripe for the taking. The 6850 gives our $500 dollar beast a big ass bite to back up its little bark (metaphors!). To give you an idea of the capability of this GPU I'll link a review by Tom's Hardware . If you don't like reading, then my synopses is that it runs Crysis Very High at 30fps in 1080p. As always, this is a budget PC for people that can't necessarily drop big money on their PC. If you feel you can save more money for your PC, then please do so. In closing, you should always check your local computer hardware store for better prices. Show them this list and see if they can beat it. This build gets a "seal" of approval. Until next month duders.
P.S: Don't know how to build a PC? These duders will show you how. Reminds you of the old days...
