Hey, im going to buy a new gaming pc and im going to save my old PSU, HDD and DVD too save money. Can't say that i know much when it comes down to hardware, but i've come this far at least

CPU: Intel Core™ i5 Quad Processor i5-750
MB: Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2, P55, Socket-1156
Graphic Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5
Ram: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL9

although i am from sweden this cost around 956 dollars, so if u can find anything in these price ranges that are better or if u are happy with this setup let me know, Thanks in advance :)

Yes it's compatible. There's a form in my sig you could fill out for more help. You could check out some lower latency ram (CL7) for now. Also, what PSU and HDD do are you planning on reusing?

Could you list the older hardware? Specifically the power source unit and hard drive. What case do you have to use, just curious.

Also add links to each of your items to be purchased so we can see specs and prices you will be paying. May help find better deals.


Samsung Spinpoint f3 1tb ~$90 USD

I'd opt for the Asus MoBo, the ones with SATA III and USB 3

Go for CAS 7 ....within 2 - 3 % of CAS 9's cost.

Actually, since the RAM is from Corsair, going to another company for CL 7 sticks will likely save money (at least in the US).

Following JackNaylor, the one he means is the Asus P7P55D-E Pro. It's about $190 here in the US. It's a great board, but the one you've got is good too.

Got some new intel, my brother is going to buy my old comp, so my budget is raised to 1190 USD, build me a complete pc for that budget and i'll see how the prices matches the sites in sweden, it's probably a little bit more expensive. Thanks for the replys i got so far and thanks in advance :)  and btw, couldn't careless about how the case looks, just if my junk fits in it :D  soz for the slow reply also.

CPU: i5-750
Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E Pro
RAM: 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 of the cheapest variety you can find.
Optical: Cheapest SATA drive
PSU: 700-750W Corsiar, Antec Earthwatts, OCZ
Case: HAF 922 or Antec 900
GPU: HD 5870

That should put you close to 1,150 USD.

and also, if u find that like a waste of time u can always go on www.komplett.se and build my computer but it may be difficult to handle, my budget in swedish kronor is 8700.

just go on "datorutrustning" and u'll find all components.
HDD=Hårddisk
Ram=minne
MB=Moderkort
PSU=nätaggregat
Case=chassi
Graphic card=grafikkort
CPU=processor
Buy=köp
Shoppingcart=kundvagn

if someone would want to go through all that trouble :)  it's the cheapest price in sweden. but newegg is still cheaper : o

It's not cheap over here either. That's easily the most expensive part in the build. It's twice the cost of the i5-750.
January 14, 2010 5:02:31 PM

*** sweden man. and i still had 5850 in my cart.. the 5870 is more 1/3 more expensive than the 5850 in sweden : o
January 14, 2010 5:03:35 PM

and when i had the 5850 in my Cart i couldn't afford the PSU or HDD, HALP!

Would help if u would want to navigate the swedish site Komplett for me mate "www.komplett.se"

Not going to be able to do that. My workplace filters out any sites with foreign languages...

The 5870 is also 1/3 more expensive than the 5850 here. If you can't afford it, drop down to the 5850. It's still a great card.
January 14, 2010 5:16:19 PM

ah ok, well. thx for the help mate and if someone is able to go through that trouble with the swedish site im grateful :)
