Hey I've been looking into making my first gaming rig that can play most games on high settings but also would love it to include a 120g SSD. I want it last me for a while with only upgrades here and there, but I've been having trouble deciding where is the best place to cut back on. The build also has to include Monitor and maybe mice and keyboard but those aren't as important.
Here is what I have in mind: CPU: 4th generation Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $219 CPU Cooler:Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $29.99 Motherboard:ASRock Z87 Pro4 ATX LGA1150 $129.99 Power Supply:XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V $ 59.99 Graphics Card:MSI GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card $254.99 on Amazon Memory:Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Hard Drive: any 1TB harddrive for less than $80 and maybe a 120g SSD for more or less than $100 Operating system:Windows 8 or 7 (any is fine really ) 64 bit $90-$100 Optical drive:Any thats lesss that $20 Case:NZXT Phantom 410 at $85.50 Monitor: Any really as long as it has good reviews and is not too pricey.$100-200
_ Total(no SSD) = around $1100
It would be great to hear opinions on this or even a better build to compare too, I'm not too picky about the parts so i will take any changes/suggestions that are for the better( price appleis also).
I wanted to see if this new build i came up with would work before i went ahead and bought everything.
Im not near a micro center so i dont apply for their offers and i would like to include monitor in the$1000-1100
I decided to go with an AMD fx8320 instead of an intel cpu, as they are at a very good value($145.00)
