Im looking to build my first gaming rig. Unfortunatley im limited to the items i can buy. Im a teenager and dont have a huge income. My budget is about 430 Euro [$645]
I have attached some links to the items. Im certain Ive went over the budget so I need some help to decide what component to downgrade. I do have an old pc so i can take the monitor, case etc. for temporary use. is my site where i will buy all the goods.
So yuo can find all the stuff they have there. Theyre quite limited though.
Anyways, heres my 'setup'
Budget: 430Euro [$645]
Use: Gaming mostly [Crysis, Fallout, CS:S, NFS, CoD 4,5]
I dont plan to overclock or run SLI or Crossfire.
Highest Possible Resolution
See though side panel for the case.
Thanks again and sorry for the mess of my previous post :S
Socket 775 is not recommend much because it is already in the process of being phased out (it has been replaced by the new 1156/P55 lineup). An AMD build would be very nice for your uses and actually be better than an Core 2 one, is there any website that you have access to that carries more of their products?
There are a couple more besides the one I have supplied, http://www.atozltd.com
Also, I can buy from http://www.ebay.co.uk
But preferably not delicate parts for I dont want them getting damaged on the way here.
Is there a particular, model/mobo you had in mind?
Ill try find it on some site. Do AMDs' need more cooling than intels?
I just wanted to be aware to get necessary cooling.
What about the mobo?
Thanks for your input. Ill try to get some more cash, i just realised my budget is a little low for the things i want to accomplish on my future pc.
No the stock HSF (heatsink fan) will be fine unless you're overclocking in which case you could get an aftermarket one (it doesn't require any more cooling than a comparable intel). Your budget is not too terribly low btw.
