So, I'm trying to build a pc and so far the specs I got are the following:
- i5 3470 3.2ghz;
- gigabyte gtx 650 ti 2gb;
- corsair 8gb ram;
- asus p8z77-v motherboard;
- corsair builder series 500W modular;
(Case and DVD Drive not included).
Everything combined gave me a total of 706 euros. I'm here to ask you guys which components would you downgrade to make the pack cheaper? I'm in a budget of 600/625 euros max, and I want a machine that won't need upgrading soon. I can either go with an i3 3220 or i5 3470, gtx 650 ti or hd 7770, and 4/8gb of ram.
I'm buying these parts from amazon (newegg doesn't ship to Portugal). Is amazon a good place to do so? Thanks.
I won't be overclocking and won't SLI or Crossfire, and I'll stick with that graphics card for a long time. Is this motherboard good enough for my needs? It's cheap right now and the price cuts down to 645 euros, which is affordable to me. Does this board have a good quality build?
I understand that the GPU would be more powerful, but I want this rig to stand as much time as possible, and with the upcoming games I don't think i3's dual core will be enough. I'm fine with that graphics card anyways, it can run bf3 on ultra no problem, even more when my resolution of monitor is only 1360x768. Thanks for the support, it really helped me out!
