So, I'm looking into building a computer for my brother, which he'll mainly use for games and watching movies. The games would be like Skyrim, Saints Row 3, Tera and Guild Wars 2.
We'll be using a spare monitor to save money, but the computer should eventually be able to handle games in 1080p.
Any suggestions and opinions are appreciated!
Intel Core i5-3570 Processor.
Not planning on overclocking, so it'd be better to choose the model that's not 'K', right?
The stock CPU cooler should be sufficient, since there's no overclock, I'm guessing?
EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti 2GB.
I'm quite in doubt about what motherboard I should choose, but I was thinking of MSI Z77A-GD65 Socket-1155.
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333MHz 8GB CL9, 2x4GB.
Corsair HX 750W PSU.
I was thinking of a ASUS BC-12B1ST, BD-Reader/DVD-Writer.
Hey there, thanks for the reply.
I probably should've mentioned this in the first post, but I live Denmark, so I probably can't buy from American stores. So the prices for parts are probably quite bigger also. The budget isn't really set in stone either.
From the list you just compiled there... Not a single thing I picked would work out?
Well, I wouldn't go with the CPU as it's only slightly faster than the 3470, that MoBo you want is for unlocked processors, the RAM is fast and cheap, added an SSD, better card (imo), better case (imo) and cheaper PSU.
I don't know any Denmark stores, but this is the build I recommend. If you want slightly more power, get the 670.
