I recently just gave my desktop away to my brother for his birthday, and now I’m stuck with my laptop—which is a fairly powerful one—but I still cannot really enjoy games like I used to on my desktop. So, I am thinking about building a computer primarily for game purposes, but I have never built a computer before and I am not the most computer literate person in the world.
So, someone was kind enough to put together a build for me based on the information I gave him/her below, and I am just trying to get some feedback.
What I have:
I already have an 8800 GTX graphics card (which I might upgrade later), and an X-Fi Soundblaster card.
Anyway, I am looking to get the “most bang for my buck,” and I hoping to only spend around 500-750 bucks if I can build something pretty nice for around that price (if not, I’m somewhat flexible). I don't plan on overclocking and I’m not really interested in crossfire.
Everything sounds great to me (especially for the price), but I was just wondering what anyone’s thoughts are on this build. I don’t want the most “elite” desktop ever, but I am concerned about performance and primarily durability issues (I don’t want anything to fry on me). So, any feedback would be great because I am seriously getting ready to make the purchases relatively soon. Thanks!
I knew as i started reading this thread i could expect some form of an e-overclocked dual core
Yes definitely going with that AMD system would yield so much more power its just crazy...the 720 overclocked rivals and beats the e8400-e8500-e8600
OP why don't you look at the prices for those cpus not to mention these new amd phenom II cpus are newer....thus will be in production longer....thus won't cost and arm and a leg when you try to upgrade to a quad core in 2-4 years ON A DEAD LGA platform.....
