  1. Read through this thread from yesterday. Same price, looks like same parts needed.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270759-31-budget-gaming#t1984704

    If you need speakers, there's a free pair amir from zzf too for basic speakers instead of the keyboard on there.
  2. I'm not really a computer wiz but is AMD or Intel better for gaming?
  3. Both are very capable CPUs. But for your budget, AMD has more to offer for the price bracket and lets you get more bang for your buck overall. Gaming is tied more to the GPU, and AMD lets you buy a little more GPU having lower cost for the same CPU power as Intel. But if your budget was $1200+, then it would be i7 all the way. Waiting till the end of the month would be in your benefit as Tues the i5 comes out. Whether you can afford an i5 system or not, AMD will probably cut some prices to compete.
  4. Batchuka's build looks really good for me if I swap out the mother board with a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130228
    and the graphics card for the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161245 and the power supply with a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182017
  5. i wouldn change the power supply rosewell isn't too good
  6. The HD 4850 is in GTS 250 country where as GTX 260 trades blows with HD 4870 hehe If i am on the hunt for a HD4850 i'd pounce on the $95 free ship Sapphire HD 4850 actually ^^

  7. I like the graphics card i chosed already, but should I replace the PSU with this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341017
  8. you could but then you lose out on the combo deal
  9. If you're spending $132 on the GPU, why not upgrade to this for the same or less after shipping and mir: 4870 1gb w/ free stalker game
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131148

    Or the GTX 260 is the same performance as the 4870 and after the combo batuchka has, it too is just $130. You'd be spending money you don't need to for less performance with the 4850.
  10. Will that card even be reliable? I read the reviews and alot of the people had problems with it.
  11. Reviews are to be taken with a skeptic view. You have no idea if they know how to set up software correctly or if they are trying to OC like one of the less than 5 eggs said. That gets into expectations beyond what the specs are. If the card does end up being a dud, newegg is great for returns. Or if you are worried about it, there's this as an option at $12 more than the 4850 you picked:
