Gaming PC Build $1000

Well, I'm trying to build my own first PC and I want to build a PC that can run the latest and upcoming games on high settings. A PC that can record fast, render fast, download fast, etc. The place to buy the items is on newegg. I have found the items I want to buy but first I want to confirm is good and fits perfectly. The items in total is $938 and I don't want to surpass $1000.

    i would go for this build since that FX-8350 is better than the i5-3570 in term of performance and future proof , the only disadvantage for this cpu is that the games at moment are using less than 4 cores in gaming only , so that by using the i5-3570 you'll get more frames per second ( about 5~10 only ) but in term of future proof and more performance in editing and 3D work and stuff , you should go for the FX-8350 , the next gen games will start using more than 4 cores in gaming , so the FX-8350 would be better for next generation games .

    But don't the AMD is slower than Intel, I have read a lot of reviews and Intel is faster for video editing and programs such as Cinema 4d. Also, don't the AMD live longer than 2 years?

    Dude , which i5 has better performance for editing than the FX-8350 ???

    it has beast performance using it 8 cores , which make it way better than the i5-3570k

    check the overall performance :

    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-3570K+%40+3.40GHz

    check the performance benchmarks :

    looks good to me , go ahead buddy , Good Luck .


    You sure man, this is important. You know there's people who said yes just to ruin them but I want to be sure if the motherboard is fits good and everything else. By the way thanks for helping me.
  9. yes am sure , but i guess the Asus motherboards are better since it's the best motherboards company !!

    go for the Asus M597 motherboard , i think it's better quality .

    and for the Power supply , try to get an Corsair , XFX , Seasonic , Antec !! ( best PSUs companies )

    i would suggest this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028
    it's Good Quality PSU and it's one of the best power supplies at that price .

    this one too : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096 * seasonic :) *

    that's it my friend !! good luck .

    Hey, I saw that the motherboard you choosed is good but I choosed that one because it has VGA. I also want to buy a monitor but if the motherboard doesn't have VGA then how can I connect it.

    you should connect the monitor to the Graphics card , not to the Motherboard built in Graphic card .
    why do you need that motherboards built in Graphics card while you have that HD 7870 ???

    you can use an DVI cable from the monitor to the Graphics card , if you don't have DVI cable , then you can find the VGA to DVI adapter in the HD 7870 Box , and that you can use your VGA cable .
  12. KareemGT,

    Ever looked at the 3570K and the 8350 clock for clock i.e. 4.0 vs 4.0, 4.5 vs 4.5........you're showing the kind of BMs that AMD loves to see the 8350 at it's inflated 4.0 'stock' clock vs the 3570K at it's 'true' 3.4 stock clock....or take them even higher - both top around 4.8 to 5 and from 4.8 on up Intel's gains increase
