Hi guys whats up, i was wondering if someone could help make me a build that would be around 600-750 Canadian dollars? I want to use it to play games like oblivion and fsx, I would prefer an intel build but i hear that AMD offers more power in builds with a lower budget.
I might be able to bump the budeget to 800$ but lets try to keep it around 600-750 please
And please use the following sites to list the parts.
Newegg.ca (would prefer you use ncix since neweggs shipping is lame -____-)
BTW i will be playing on a 21.5" LCD which is currently hooked up to my PS3.
thanks in advance =D
You should also consider DirectCanada and BestDirect because shipping will be free and, depending on where you live, you might not have to pay PST. Newegg.ca charges PST, handling fees and shipping.
I am ordering $600 in parts and BestDirect is the cheapest delivered to me. NCIX is cheaper (price matching), but shipping charges made them more expensive.
Oh ya? Either will do i am fine with directCanada as well, both good sites. Also this is what someone else made for me.
$132 - NCIX.com - Buy AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Dual Core Processor Socket AM3 3.1GHZ 7MB Cache 80W Retail Box - HDZ550WFGIBOX In Canada.
$ 35 - NCIX.com - Buy OCZ Vendetta 2 Triple Heatpipe CPU Heatsink 120MM Fan 800-1500RPM 20-32DBA -BUNDLE W/ 1366 MOUNT- - VENDETTA2-1366 In Canada. ( has that extra backplate for when you do decide i7 )
Just looking at your first build, it's decent, I would have gotten 4gb of ddr3 1600, a x3 720, and better power supply. For the second one, pretty much the same thing applies except for the x3 720. I like the Antec case better than the coolermaster. Either get a 260 or a 4870 if those are within your price range, otherwise go for a 4850. What is your monitor's resolution?
Ill see the canadian prices on the parts you mentioned, i am still on budget so i will have to see. I will most likely make a i7 build about a year and a half or so from now so no need to have ti fully future proof. So if i just take the SATA ODD it shoudl all be good right? =)
Case- Antec Three Hundred Mini Tower Gaming Case 300 ATX 3X5.25 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB & Audio
Everything looks pretty good then, is the 500W PSU enough for the GTX 260? I hear it is but just want to make sure. And how easy is it to set up a PC? I mean i am really good with tech but i have never built my own PC before, this will be my first. How likely am i to screw something up =p
They have similar specs and they cost the same. Buy the one with the rebate if you don't mind having to submit it; otherwise buy the stealthX which has 5 more amps on the 3.3V and the 5Vrails (not required for your setup).
