Hi! I'm looking for a new computer for playing games at 1920x1080 with the highest graphics settings, while listening to music on youtube (1080p) in the background.
I found two already built cause I don't really want to build it myself:
These are same on both:
Core i5, 4670K
2000 GB, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache
MSI Z87-G45 GAMING ATX
Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus Midi Tower
This is where they are diffrent:
770 or 760 EVGA GeForce GTX
250 or 120 GB, SSD Samsungs 840
16 or 8GB, 2xDDR3 1600Mhz Corsair VENGEANCE LP RED
600W or 500W, BeQuiet Kraft
1827$ or 2132$
Currently running an i5-750 + 5850 Radeon, with a single normal HDD.
Would this be a noticible upgrade? Is it overkill?
Currently mainly play Tera, but I do try out new games and I usually have my computer for 3 to 4 years before I replace it.
This is about as good as it gets without spending a lot more money. Same Cpu as above, this motherboard isn't as expensive and can SLI video cards as well. You could step up and get the Pro version, for it's built in wi-fi and a couple of other features, but I don't see a reason to. Adds a 120gb SSD that you can actually fill completely up without suffering performance wise(unlike all other SSD's out right now to my knowledge). This 770 video card has one of the highest stock clock rates and is overkill really for 1080p gaming, but will serve you well for the next few years. The PSU is big enough in case you decide to SLI in a couple years time(although then you might want to just get a brand new card, if so you can drop down to a 700w or so PSU). I love this case for a variety of reason, and recommend it in almost every build above a certain price point. 8gb's of Ram is plenty for gaming. The cooler is one of the best performing out right now.
Should I buy 6gb/s sata cables or use my 3gb/s ones?
You think this would handle games at 1920x1080 well and beyond?
No cpu cooler here, cause I didn't plan to overclock at start.
This should be a huge upgrade from an i5-750 2,66ghz and Radeon 5850 right?
Quite a bit, and the build should last you long enough too. I'd bet that in 2-3 years all you'd have to do would be buy a new video card and you'll be near current on gaming performance. Or see how long the 760 lasts ya. Either way, nice build.
