    Design me a sexy build

    Hey guys what's up, I'm sick of my computer and I want a new build but I haven't really stayed too up to date on the latest hardware.

    The only thing I do not need are a hard drive and case (custom building my case around the computer).

    What I want and will not change are an AMD processor and an ATI graphics card. I'll never go with Intel or Nvidia. I don't care how much better anyone likes them or how much more powerful they are, I've always been and will be an AMD/ATI fanboy.

    My budget is currently 1 grand, so if the build can be lower that would be awesome, as it will give me a jump start on saving for better parts in the future. My current gfx card is the XFX HD 6850 so if I have to I'll keep the card and buy a top-of-the-line ATI card at a later date.

    Thanks guys I really have no clue what's up-to-date anymore!

    Something you could do is to buy a new MOBO with 2 PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 and then get another 6850, that's what I've got. I managed to make it perform slightly better than a GTX 570 (referring to this: PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmarks - High End Video Cards) with a little overclocking on both of them.

    Thanks to both of you, I'm going to check out all of the listed items when I get home and do a comparison, I need to make sure I can keep all of this cost effective for future building on my PC. Very much appreciated to both of you!
