I'm putting together a new rig for gaming now, i've already sunk $600 into it and i'll probably sink another $1600-1700 into before i'm done, so far i'v got.
1 ASUS M4A79T MOBO with an AM3 chipset capable of dual video cards. 1 AMD Phenom 2 3.4 GHz quadcore processor 1 of 2 Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E w/Dual DVI, HDMI, Display port. 1 4GB kit of Kingston Hyperx DDR3 1600 MHz Ram
what i plan to get is.
1 Corsair Pro Series Gold AX 1200w Power supply 1 Samsung Syncmaster 27" LCD monitor w/1 ms response time another 4GB kit of ram another video card 1 copy of windows 7 home premium full retail box 1 copy of office 2010 home and student retail 1 Corsair Obsidian series 700D full tower
i may or may not need a sound card depending on if i can reuse the one on my current rig.
1st,3000 dollars - 5000 dollars is 248,000 yen - 413,000 yen...
i can buy so much with that... i can buy a good highspec pc for about 100,000 yen,and the rest would be tons of pc equipment,such as very cool printer,very cool mouse,usb hard disc,etc... 413,000 yen buys alot of pc equipments,gosh it'll be a dream come true...
