Hello! For my very first build, i need some advice. I am building a gaming intensive rig that i am planning to use for the next few years. I will order the parts in August. My total budget is ~$1600. Here are the three builds that i have to choose between. And here are my three planned builds:
As you might see, the third build is a tad overbudget. I really need some advice to lower it's price while not switching the card, a mech. keyboard and case. Should i even go with that build? Is it a definite improvement? Help please, it will be appreciated.
Usually, I'd say the AMD build, but I'm usually biased towards AMD, so I must resist in this instance.
To be honest, the third build is probably the best. The GTX 780 is one hell of a card, not so sure about the Haswell i5 though. The 3570k would be perfectly sufficient, but to each their own
They all look like solid builds to be quite honest, it'll mostly come down to your personal preference/gut instinct as to which one you'll build
First one looks good, the haswell i5, will be about 20% more powerful then the current i5-3570k, and considering the current i5, eats the FX-8350 for dinner, I am sure the even more powerful Haswell i5-4670k will dominate.
The HD 7970 will eat up just about any game, and you will save a couple bucks. The GTX 780 is better of course, but in my opinion the first build is my choice.
Yeah... The third is the best, but the priciest too. I am hoping the price will go down $50-$100 by august but that's just me and not at all probable for such a price range. I still need suggestions to lower the price so that i am no relying on hopes. Any ideas. I do want a mech. Keyboard, the 780, haswell and the case. I need help on that one.
Heh! I can hope that the price drops by the middle of August. And look at me, i still cant help but want an ssd. Is there any potential in changing the hdd, optical drive, or anything else to reduce the price?
