Very First Gaming PC Build Help ($1000 Budget)

Last response: in Systems
Share
May 12, 2013 11:11:28 AM

I am very new to the world of PC Gaming but due to the boredom of gaming on a console with outdated technology, I plan to avoid this again by choosing a Pc rather than a Next Gen Console coming out around the end of the year.

So with that being said, my knowledge of computers are very very limited. So any help or build ideas would be very appreciated.

Approximate Purchase Date: Early June

Budget Range: 800-1000 USD

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the internet

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Do you need to buy OS: Yes - My initial thought would be to get the latest version of Windows but then I started noticing that Windows 8 isn't that great for gaming and Windows 7 is preferred.

Needed: OS, monitor
Possibly needed: Mouse and key board (not sure if I want to include that in the budget since I could use cheap items until I'm ready to buy some that are more expensive)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com was the most recommended site for me but I'm open to nearly anything.

Location: Florida

Parts Preferences: No preferences

Overclocking: No - Had no idea what this was until looking it up and seems like I shouldn't do this until I'm more familiar with it.

SLI or Crossfire: Dont know what this is.

Your Monitor Resolution: Need to purchase the monitor

Additional Comments: Lots of new games I will be trying but I know I will be playing Elder Scroll Games and such. I would just like to be able to play modern games at max setting aswell as being able to easily upgrade my computer as games require more power in the future.

As far as the OS goes Windows 8 is just as good for gaming as Windows 7. I have even seen games that run better with Windows 8. Yes Windows 8 does take a little time to get used to but overall it is a really good OS but ether will work just fine. Just make sure you get x64 version. The parts list that avenseth12 posted would be a good build.

Awesome, thanks guys. I'm somewhat nervous about putting it all together but with step by step videos like that should make the process pretty smooth.

Using benchmarks is the best way to build a low cost and powerful PC.

Benchmarks are simple, the higher your benchmark is the better.

You just have to look for the best CPU, GPU, HDD, RAM for the lowest price possible.

That's how I've been improving my computer for years.

So let's say you wanna spend 150$ on your CPU well, all you have to do is look at all the CPUs within this price range. Then, if you see a something with 3400 benchmarks for 150$ and a little lower there's one with 3200 benchmarks for 110$ then, you should pick the 110$ one because paying an extra 40$ for 200 benchmarks isn't worth it.

Someone suggested this build for me. How does this compare to Avenseth12s suggested build?

i5 3570K + ASRock Z77 Extreme4 + Corsair DDR3 1600 8GB combo $328 AR
Sapphire 7950 3GB $290 AR
Sandisk Ultra Plus 120GB $95
Seagate 1TB $71
Lite-ON DVD Burner $15 AP
Rosewill Hive 650W $50 AR AP or XFX 650W semi modular $70 (supports crossfire/sli, as does the mobo)
NZXT Source 210 $25 AR

It's superior in terms of gaming performance. Go for the XFX, if it's one of the ones made by SeaSonic. If not, go for a 550-650w SeaSonic PSU, such as this one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
However, in your shoes, I would pay the extra $45 for a Phantom 410 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) instead of a Source 210. Drastically superior case.

There are a lot of changes you need to make if you want a good gaming PC. You are spending way too much on a case. You can get by just fine in a $65 Corsair 300R. On the counterpoint, you have a really weak GPU. The Radeon HD 7850 or GTX 650 Ti should really be the minimum you get, and at your price range you could easily afford a Radeon HD 7870 XT or more. You also only need 8 GB of RAM, and your PSU is from a poor brand. I would strongly recommend changing this if at all possible.

Sorry. That's a really bad build, from an optimization standpoint. At the $1,000 mark, you're in "max everything short of Crysis 3" territory, and he had you with a GPU which I try to avoid for $600 builds.

No offense meant, but why go for a lower-rated GPU and case? Neither is bad, mind you, but the 410 beat the 300R fairly convincingly when Tom's compared them, and the 7970 Ghz. is quite a ways ahead of the 670.
