Hi all my first time building a computer come here looking for coments and advice from people with experience building a gaming pc. I'm starting with budget $1000-$1200, my friend is going to hook me up win and office software so it will not be included on the budget for case and internal parts ok. I've made a shooping cart with newegg and will buy from them. Also to let you know I don't plan on overclocking, I perfer system durability maybe later if this becomes antiquated.
This is what I've come up with from what I've study on the net I think it will make me prety happy. Not going to use sli because bye the time I can afford to add another 7800gt probably there will be another socket better than pci-e, also at first was going to go with the 3800+venice e3 just can't find the justification for the extra $181, I don't think it will affect gaming that mutch or will it.
do you see room for improvement within my budget also less money spent the better
i hope you're friend is selling you windows and office :wink: :wink: :wink:
anyways my comments:
is a modem really necessary? why not a cheap $10 modem?
the case seems to have a psu already, why dont you look one without one so you can get a nicer one?
i'll spend a little more and get a larger hd, 160 is kind of small and 200-300 ones are cheap
dont forget keyboard and mouse unless your using ones from your old pc
video card, i recommend you wait a week or 2, the 7900gt is set to cost around 299 so you'll get a little jump in performance for the same price but that's up to you. (though evga does have the step up program)
spring for 2 (2x1g) ram. they're only around 150-160 (after rebate) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1682...
