Hello Guys .... i've made a thread about Intel gaming pc build before.. but i have discovered that some parts from intel are expensive and there is better at AMD and not too expensive like Intel... so here is my build which i wanna have ... :) 

MotherBoard:GA-78LMT-S2P

CPU:AMD PHENOM II x4 955 Or Phenom II x6 1045T

Ram:4GB HyperX or G.kill and after i upgrade the pc I'll get another 4GB ^_^

GraphicsCard:Ati Radeon Hd 7850 1GB or Ati Radeon Hd 6670 or 2GB Ati Radeon 6450
**( i don't know which one to get but i know that 7850 is better but i maybe not be able to find it in Egypt )...

HardDrive:500GB


Case: i don't know what kind of case would fit but i think any case that is not so expensive Like Gamma or maybe cooler master cuz i don't want to spend alot of money on the case ;) 


PowerSupply:i think 550w or 600w from Gamma or Antec (but i'd get Gamma cuz i maybe not gonna be able to find antec in Egypt !)

Dvdwriter:maybe a samsung dvdwriter should do !


So... i wanna know what do you think guys ! is this build is a good one ? & is it going to stay with me w/o upgrading for a couple of years ? & if i got the Ati Radeon Hd 7850 1GB will the motherboard keep up with it or the motherboard gonna be toasted :p  ? :D  & if you have any other ideas about changing any part of this build please be my guest :)  i wanna hear your opinions ? :D 


BTW: I wanna be able to play Battlefield 3 on High and Battlefied 4 will this build make my wishes come true ? :D 

Thanks Guys ... :D

First, what is your budget? That is a key part of this.

Second, I think it's time to move on from the Phenoms. I would suggest looking at a 4300FX or a 6300FX. Also, you would want to go ahead and get the 8 GB now. It's better to buy RAM in pairs for stability.

Third, what was your Intel build? Though Intel is a little more expensive, it's not a huge margin.

I agree with barto. Get the AMD FX-4300 or 6300 and I would recommend Corsair vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM. For the case, get what you want. As long as it looks good to you and you like it. The GPU is good or you could get an EVGA NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650Ti for about 20 bucks cheaper and runs faster at stock speed. If you overclock then the Radeon will run faster. Your hard drive is fine and so is your Optical drive and the power supply should be at around 430 watts to 600 watts is really all you need unless you have two GPU's.

well my budget is around 635 US $ it's about 3800 L.E

but the problem is that the CPUS that u suggested may not be in egypt i Barely could get the Phenom II x4 955 !
and about the ram i can get 2x4GB HyperX is that is good ? Ps: i think i may not find other kinds of the ram ! :p 

Here is my Intel Build : http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/67244-3-builder-bui...
but it's a bit more expensive :D

well i will look for these CPUS in the stores in egypt ! but are they more expensive ? and if i got the Phenom II x4 955 will it bottleneck the 7850 ?

and about the GTX 650Ti i think i'm not gonna find it in stores here :/  and btw i'm not gonna overclock anything :p 

and about the Nvidia GTX 650Ti can it even work with this motherboard ? because the Gtx 650Ti doesn't support SLI/CROSSFIRE ! will it work or what ? :D

Your budget is pretty good for a gaming PC build. The CPU's i can check to see if any good AMD CPU's are available in Egypt and the Hyper x RAM is very good. Kingston is a good brand. If you can find em in Egypt get some corsair vengeance RAM.

Okay cool thank you but put in consideration that i live in Alexandria :D 

and about the GTX 650Ti will it work with the mother board ? and if so could you check for me how much does it cost and if i could find it where i live (Alexandria..Egypt) ? :D 

and if i got the exact build that was written above will i be able to play Battlefield 3 on High or Ultra ? and will i be able to play Battlefield 4 on high ? i mean will this build stay with me without upgrading for a couple of years ?

The Graphics card you listed first is good and so is the GTX 650Ti. I would proably get the Radeon 7850, that will play Battlefield 3 and 4 no problem on high as long as you have a good Cpu paired with it. If you can spend a little more cash i would get the Intel core I5 3350P. Its 179.99 USD on newegg. but you would need a new board. If you already have your Mobo stick with the 6300 CPU. Its available in egypt is what im told by newegg. I will list some links the CPU and Graphics card i would get to play Battlefield 3 and 4.

In the long run Intel quad cores win over AMD 6 cores. Any other part you get wont really matter except the motherboard and the Graphics card will fit into your mobo. Either one will fit. And make sure your board has everything you need connector wise.

WELL AT FIRST THANK YOU :)  ..... and i really can't get an intel cor i5 cpu cuz it's a bit expensive ! and i will have to look for another motherboard that of course will cost me more ! and btw: i didn't buy anything yet ! :D 

and i compared the GTX 650ti 1gb and the HD 7850 1gb it's nearly no difference but the 7850 is better ! :D  and btw: i would get the HD 7850 1GB not the 2GB cuz it's more expensive .... and tbh: i never bought anything from newegg or any of the sites ! i'll buy the parts from local shops ! but the 7850 2gb on newegg is for 180$ usd only ! in egy i will be lucky if i found this card the 1gb version for 1300 L.E ! and i think the 2gb will be for 1700 L.E

and for the cpu .... the core i5 will be for about 1500 L.E but the Phenom II x4 955 will be for 600-700 L.E ! :p  but the problem also in the motherboard cuz i won't be able to find another one in that price and the 7850 will work on it ! if u have any suggestion tell me ! Thanks bro :D  BTW: WHERE ARE U FROM ?

The intel CPU's are kinda expensive and the 7850 is better than the gtx. You could also downgrade to a 7790 which will still play battlefield 3 and 4.

If you're looking for this rig to last you a couple of years, I would really suggest trying to save a little extra for the core i5. All it takes is one new ridiculous game like Crysis 3 to come out that puts your CPU to shame and you're going to wish you went for a little more. it's cheaper to pay more now than have to upgrade completely when you need it. (1500 LE now is less than 700LE + 1500LE upgrade in the future)

I know that's hard to hear, I had to make the same decision when I was building my last rig, but what I found was that even though I stretched every dollar I had at the time, I got through it and I'm far happier now with my rig than I would be with less quality components.

Just some food for thought. But on a side note getting computer parts in Egypt sounds rough man!! I'll pray that the powers that be change that for you!

This is not necessary. I have a GTX 260 SLI, an Intel Core i7 920 @ 4GHZ and 4GB of 1600MHZ RAM and I can run Battlefield 3 on Ultra and it only uses a little over 3GB of RAM total, that's with Windows 7 and everything.

The 8Gb is not only for battlefield and for a gaming rig you are going to want to have 8gb of ram because other games take up more memory and if he is running multiple programs at once while playing a game then he will want 8gb of memory and at least a quad core cpu so it is kind of necessary.

The powercolor 7850 is good, I'm not to familiar with them but everyone I know says they make quality GPU's so you could get it if you want. The 7770 oc edition is a good graphics card, it will still play modern games at medium to high setting. And gigabyte is a good brand. Both GPU's are good and will get the jib done easily but the CPU you put in kind of determines what frames your gonna get(Kind of). The core I5 is a really good CPU and if you get one go with the 3470 model and now that the haswell chips were released the I5 prices will drop most likely. Not sure about the motherboard though. You dont really need a 150 dollar motherboard just to play games. So look for one that will support your memory speed and your CPU socket. Heres an example: If your CPU has an lga1155 socket get a mobo that supports that and make sure it supports ivy bridge cpu's, and when you find a motherboard that has your socket look at the supported speeds, It will look like this (1600(Oc)/1333).
