I'm bulding a new desktop. I just wanted some opinions on my choices. Main uses are for internet, some gaming (PC Gaming Newb so don't know exactly how much just yet) and just a general future proof pc that is upgradeable in the future. Parts not needed = CD-rom, DVDRW drive, Speakers, keyboard and mouse. Goal budget $1,000 max
Oh. Well, that drive was recommended to me by a friend. I wasn't aware of the new one although a newegg comparison shows them exactly the same except for some added features. Do you think it will make a huge difference?
Couple issues, you are getting a 790X which is crossfire capable and an nVidia card, if you are going to get an nVidia card dont pay extra for the crossfire board, or get the 790X and an ATI equivilent like a 4770 or 5750.
OK... So... everything I mentioned is ordered and on it's way. Sadly... I didn't find this forum early enough to find the flaws in my selections. Since it is Sunday I can make the corrections and if the price is right I can overnight the parts and build it on schedule. However, I could always wait a bit if it will make my build better. Every post was very good and I now have regrets. thank you for the info. I think I will order the F3 hdd and a different vid card to suit my system better. is there anything else anyone suggests to suit my system? THANKS in advance.
i ould go from a x4 965 to a x4 955 and use the 30 bucks you saved on an ATI raedon 4870/4890. the gpu is a big bottleneck for that system
dont go with the 5770 unless you want to save the money, yeah its DX11, but is it really even powerful enough to let you do all the dx11 eyecandy? the 4890 is a great card, why get the bad card from the newer generation when you can get a better card from the older generationat about the same price?
The 5750 not so much, but the 5770 is a pretty good card. Take a look at the reviews, it handles 1680x1050 fairly well. (about the same speed as the 4870.) considering your only spending another ~$20, and gaining DX11, Eyefinity, etc, I'd go for it.
