I am looking for the best components for a gaming / multimedia PC. I don't want to spend more than 630 (Euro). The components are like 10-20% cheaper in euro's in my country instead of dollars (I live in holland)
Cooler Master Scout 2 Advanced (Needs to be a LAN case that doesn't looks like a fridge
Seagate 2TB SATA HDD (No SSD plz, to expensive)
Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Kit
MSI GeForce GTX 660 2GB Twin Frozr III OC
Price --> 616 Euro / $736 Dollar
I already have a 550W PSU from MSI, that one is like new, only used it 2 months.
And gaming is not the most important thing, because multitasking is also very important (in my opinion). If i can play games on medium 1920X1200 on 50+ fps, then i am happy enough
Also overclocking isn't very important!
Which parts can i change to make the performance even better in my budged?
You have one of the best processors out there, you're only compromising on the mobo allthough you can always go for a 990fx chipset board if not the sabertooth. Check what 990fx mobo you can get without breaking the bank down your side and we'll help you choose the best one from the lot. Asus premium boards are a bit expensive I agree, try asrock or msi but the 990fx 's.
Really dont get that MSI mono. Its known for blowing up with 8cores. I think they even dropped the support for the 8 core CPUs. If you can't afford that 990fx boards, a gigabyte ga970-ud3 is also a nice board
They're both the same unless you want to CF or SLI later on..... that's the major difference , EVO has a 1 PCIe at 16x and Dual at 8x where are the PRO has dual at 16x plus a extra SATA 6gbps port.... so it's really what you plan to do later. They are both great boards and of course they are Asus... so you don't need to look further if you're planning on buying either one of the 2.... again rev 2's are better.
I just bought my pc and have it for a week now, i only switched the 8350 to an 8320 (it was 55 dollars cheaper O,o), and bought a R9 270X instead of a GTX660 because the performance was much better
I have to say, this PC is a beast, it boots up in 30 seconds, and after it booted up you're pc can't almost crash, i tried to render 1 video, copy 3 files, watched a youtube video, and the pc was still able to run smooth
Also overclocking the GPU is fun, i will overclock the 8320 when i got a liquid CPU cooler, because it is now on 3.7 GHZ, and makes a lot of noise while i am gaming / rendering a video
