Hello all, I am about to build my first PC and have some questions if someone doesn't mind helping me. I have put together one from Newegg and wanted to know if all the parts will work and fit in the case/Motherboard. Also, I was wondering if I needed anything else like cables or anything. Below is what I have currently and my budget is maximum of $850 and it is $852 with shipping on what I have.

Get low profile RAM.

Go with win8. It IS better for gaming unlike everyone says.

PSU is overkill. Get an xfx550 unit. HIGH quality and costs less.

Thanks guys for the help! Hopefully it all will go good since I have never done this before.

Go to PCPartPicker and follow what stickmansam said as it will make a huge difference in price in your build if you buy off the sites it gives you.

November 3, 2013 4:59:28 PM

yep, shopping arround usually gets you better prices :)  ain't competition grand?
November 3, 2013 5:51:36 PM

Thanks for that place PCPartPicker, I never heard of it before. Will def use it when purchasing these items :) . Thanks again.

Hello again, I did have one more question if you do not mind helping. Instead, I was thinking of getting the amd 6300 cpu and the amd 7970 gpu located here.

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

Will this set up work good without any bottleneck? And the GPU will fit in that case and everything will be compatible? It is a little over my budget but I would like to get if all will work! Thanks for the help again :)

I am just sick of playing games with this gpu lag and stutter crap. I used asus cm174 desktop with apu a10 5700, ASUS g53 SW laptop with gtx 460m + i7 2620qm I believe it was, MSI GE70 laptop with gtx 660m + core i7 3630qm laptop, avatar desktop with amd 7790 + fx 6300, all of these computers I owned are crap and got rid of them as fast as I could. All of them had this bad stutter/gpu lag even on lower setting and I am just tired of all of this... Thanks you guys for any help :) )

Oh and I am using a 30 MBPS internet now with no changes at all from 6 MBPS internet if that even matters...

for us to see your part list, you need to use the perma link option :)  (upper middle left side of page in pcpartpicker)

hmm the 660m should be quite potent as well as the 7790 and fx6300

Here it is.

Should cost around $855 with no promo or rebates so I think it is a good price.

Do you think the am 7870 GHz OC edition that I have on there will be better than the amd 7870 powercooler XT version non OCed? I do not like overclocking so was just wondering if it would be a better choice than the XT version.

Thanks.

No, the XT version of the 7870 uses completely different GPU architecture and is ALOT better. It is basically a 7930.

I would get win8 for sure.

Everything else looks fine. You could get an 8320 (same as the 8350 but slightly underclocked and will basically perform the same in games) and use the money for a better GPU like a 7950. The GPU does 85% of the work in gaming and the CPU simply has to 'keep up'

Best solution
