Building my 1st Customized PC

After like 4 years or so, I’m finally going to get to use a desktop again. I’m planning to build my own customize ddesktop when next academic semester begins. Now I’m in the period of studying the best rigs for my budget. It’ll tough trying to squeeze my demand for performance into a 1K budget.

Let’s see my current choice of components are:

Choice 1: Phenom IIX4 955

Let’s see, if I go for all my first choice components it would cost me S$ 1394. Crazy! Over budget by 400. What if all my last choice. S$ 1185… still over budget by almost 200.  I think I seriously need to reconsider my budget.. or my components of choice. But I’ve been using PC for so long and I haven’t for once tasted a very powerful PC to suit my usage. For the first time, I really want to have that since I’m planning to have this for a long time. If you have cash, can go for this rigs, guarantee extreme performance.
