Solved

First Time Build! $1150 Budget, Would like to purchase today, advice please!!

Approximate Purchase Date: Hopefully today

Budget Range: 1,150 before rebates and hopefully before shipping, $50 in shipping would be alright.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Internet browsing, game play, for accounting/business usage(making invoices, placing orders, etc)

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: This is a new build!

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg and Amazon. I am most familiar with those sites but would not be against others that are reliable.

Location: Fort Collins, Colorado

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, ASUS

Overclocking: Maybe later on..

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, hopefully

Additional Comments: I honestly would like a quiet, reliable and long lasting PC. I would also like a motherboard with wifi capabilities, though I would not mind having to fetch my own.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My family's business needs a new computer and I need a new personal computer. I figured that since I really would like to do some light gaming I would just go ahead and build a dual purpose computer. I have looked around and I think I could build a really good computer for my budget!


I was thinking of using...

Motherboard: ASUS z87-Pro
CPU: Intel i5-4670k 3.4GHz
Video Card:Sapphire Radeon HD7870
Memory: Seagate 1TB HDD
Power Supply: Corsair TX 750
Cooling: Corsair H100i(it feels a little irrelevant since I honestly won't be doing any extreme gaming. I would just like it to feel as if I tend well to my system)
RAM: Corsair Venegeance 8GB CL8
Optics Drive:LG SuperMultiDrive
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition.  
OS: Windows 8.1
Monitor: Acer G236HL Bbd 23-Inch Screen LCD-Lit Monitor

I really would appreciate advice or suggestions as far as putting my hardware together and my selected combination! ^-^ I'm really excited...

    get a Cooler master hyper 212 evo instead of the h100i and put the money into a hd7950 or if not just get a r9 270x instead i mean my i7 4770k goes to 85 c max in aida64 with the cm 212 evo and it is @4.4ghz and idles @ around 35-46c
  2. Not that I am a master PC guru or anything but personally I would:

    - Get a cheaper CPU
    - Cheaper motherboard
    - cheaper CPU cooler
    - Use all the saved money for a better graphics card.

    Is this the r9 270x you speak of? and what would be a good/cheaper MoBo that could use? I honestly really like the one I have since it has integrated wifi capabilities, ha.
