Hello, I recently just reached my Budget goal and could really use some help picking out parts to build my new PC. I have been looking everywhere but cannot find a build that will fit my needs. I would love to run games @ 1080p at stable FPS



Approximate Purchase Date: This Weekend

Budget Range: $700-$800 Before Rebates and After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and Surfing the internet

Do you have a monitor: Yes

Do you need to buy an OS: Yes (Windows 8.1)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or Amazon

Location: U.S.A

Parts Preferences:
-8Gb RAM
-1tb HDD

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments:

-I am gonna need a wifi adapter or a mobo with wifi since I can't use ethernet

-The way the case looks does not matter to me just as long as its compatible with the parts and is easy to upgrade in the future

Thanks

If you absolutely cant go over $800, drop the cpu cooler and use the stock cooler that comes with the CPU. You can always add the cooler later.

The FX-6300 with the GA-970A-UD3P is $195 before $10 rebate. Win7 64-bit is $85 with code EMCPDHC96.

I'd do a bit of research on your graphics. You can pocket the extra cash, or maybe put it toward an SSD (or graphics upgrade). The R9 280 is a great card (big bro of the HD7950) but the woods are full of great cards between $200-$250. Carefully evaluate the volt delivery (Is it unlocked?) and memory on the card. Some varieties of VRAMs on the Radeons will OC like a mofo.

At 1080p it should run most games at high or better settings.
