Solved

Please help me build a 1600.00 cdn gaming rig.

Hi all,

First post and from what I have read from other posts you all ROCK in helping noobs like me. I am handing my current PC over to my better half hers died and want to have a new one built locally in the next few weeks and have a budget of 1600.00 cdn to work with.

First off I am using a Samsung SyncMaster SA950 if you could tell me if its still relevant that will help with the rest of the build. I am looking for a rig to game and surf and not a whole lot else other that youtube/itunes and such.

Anything you guys can do to help or advise you can give would ROCK!

I will be playing Elder Scrolls Online and LoL and others....

Cheers,
Billy

    I think CDN means canadian dollar, right?
    The monitor you have is a 27" Full HD 3D LED monitor, right? It is great. So you have got 1600 CDN for your build. Here is a great one-

    Well from what I have seen Intel is better for gaming? and I have used only Nvidia but will be happy with the best build possible.... Liquid cooled if you guys think it needs to be I do not know much about OCing...

    Thank you for the info so far it will help me pass the time at work while I figure this out with all your help, If it helps I will be using memoryexpress unless you guys think otherwise.

    cheers,

    Hi Verma,

    Yes that is my monitor, got it in 2011 just wanted to make sure it was still a good monitor by todays standards. Your build looks awesome, I was told never to skimp on the power supply and I think you have given me the power where it counts in my gpu and I was told the I5 is as good for gaming as the I7 in alot of cases....

    Oh and YES, CDN is Canadian.

    Cheers,

    Not in a lot of cases, In almost every case, i5 is as good as the i7. The PSU I suggested is very good for that budget. ANd, yes, nothing beats a 780ti :)
