I know I posted earlier about a 700 dollar budget but, I may be able to stretch it a bit so how would this be?

More about good rig
  1. for what?
  2. Very nice. I am going to get that system too.. :D
  3. its good, will play games great, but would recommend getting a better gpu, the 650 is good but in that price range u can get a 650 ti boost, or a amd 7850 which is great for the price, but rest looks good.

    Also maybe consider a hdd for other storage, 240gb is not a lot after OS and stuff, u can get a 1TB western digital blue driver for like $65
  4. If he just posted what he's going to use it for .....
  5. few things as u r getting a locked cpu u do not need z87 motherboard and a cpu cooler,a h87 motherboard with stock fan would be fine
    and if this is a gaming pc the card is not a good one at least get a gtx 650 ti boost
    and also get a hdd if u don't have it already and what about ram
  6. OHHWW.. You better to change your GPU to GTX 650 ti boost OC by asus and the MOBO !!! Because you are using lock CPU. If you dont want to change your mobo change the CPU to unlock version (with a K on last part of CPU name) to use the feature of Z87 chipset..
  7. Sorry for not posting what it will be for haha it will be for like 3D modelling and gaming. Also the reason I don't have memory is because I already have some of my own so I don't need to buy it. Also thanks for the input on the mobo (:
  8. If you do not plan on upping your budget for the graphics card, I would suggest getting the HD7770 over the 650 because it is faster and you can get it for around the same.
  9. I don't really play anything super graphics intensive the most graphics intensive thing I may be playing would be Diablo 3 and SC 2 so would the 650 be good enough for that?
