i had a plan to build a gaming pc for around $1400 but now i have found a pc for $550 (second hand) and so i am wondering if i can save my self some cash.
($1400 pc specs)
.CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer
.Corsair CX-750 Modular 80+ Bronze Power Supply
.ASRock Z87 Extreme3 Motherboard
.Intel Core i5 4670
.G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL (2x4GB) DDR3
.Asus GTX 770Direct CU OC Edition 2Gb PCI-E2.0 GDDR5
.Pioneer DVR-220LBKS Black 24x DVDRW OEM
.Western Digital WD Blue 1TB WD10EZEX
.Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
($550 pc specs, second hand)
- GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 Motherboard
- 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6780 Video card
- 8GB Ram
- i7 2600 CPU 3.40GHz /3.70GHz
- Windows 7
(this is all the information i can get on this machine right now)
.Could i just buy a GTX 770 and stick into the second hand pc and save my self $400-$500?
.And if i use the GTX 770 in the second hand pc Will there be noticeable difference in graphics compared to new machine?
.I have a bad financial situation too. Would it be better to get the second hand pc and build on it overtime (should it need an upgrade) and save my self a lot of cash and stress.
.Or is the new machine a lot better somehow? and is worth the money?
I just want to play games with max graphics and i don't care for over clocking or SLI atm because i am using a computer right now that cant even run the witcher on max graphics and im pretty desperate to play some games i have been missing out on.
Your welcome. Only thing I would check is the power supply in that rig. Make sure it has enough wattage to handle your gtx should u decide to buy it. Min 650 watts Dont forget to pick a solution and close out the thread when your done!
