$700+/- Light Gaming PC Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: December 15, 2009 1:12 PM in Systems Share airpressure December 15, 2009 4:21:47 AM Hello everyone. Last time I built a system was around 5 years ago, and I definitely need a new system. APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Two to four weeks from now. Also depends on deals or availability of items BUDGET RANGE: 500-700 Before Rebates (Lower the better and would not mind if budget goes over a bit) SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Light coding (Visual studios, SQL, etc), Gaming (Not intense), Movies, Internet PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Mouse, Speakers, OS, Keyboard PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, Fry's or any other reputable place is okay. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel Core I5 with P55 mobo with 22~23" LCD OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No MONITOR RESOLUTION: Currently 1280x1024. Hope to get a 1900+ with this build or later depending on budget. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would definitely want a quiet PC The initial budget was intended for the system only, but I would probably need a new monitor. As for games, I don't plan on running intensive games such as crysis or fallout etc. Games I'm thinking on running on this system would be mass effect, Diablo 3, and Mass effect 2. I already have Windows 7 Pro (both x64 and x86). I just have to decide on which one to use. (Recommendations please!) List of Parts I'm considering: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz (199.99) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB ($164.99) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM SATA ($54.99) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Parts like mobo, RAM, and PSU seems to largely depend on the entire build, so I really couldn't get a hang of what to look for. Thanks!
