Solved $650 gaming and media PC Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: January 25, 2010 11:29 PM in Systems Share brandonk January 18, 2010 8:30:00 PM I am building a computer for moderate gaming and watching movies on an HDTV for about $650. Here's what I've come up with, and any advice would be much appreciated. COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail $79.99 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $54.99 GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $79.99 SAPPHIRE 100245HDMI Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail $99.99 Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply - Retail $54.99 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM - Retail $114.99 AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGIBOX - Retail $165.99 Sony Optiarc Black IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1678A - OEM $18.99 Total: $670 More about : 650 gaming media Best solution dndhatcher January 18, 2010 10:14:48 PM Look at the Antec Neo Eco 520C power supply. Its an Antec 80+ rated for $5 more than the thermaltake you listed. For gaming you would get better performance from an Athlon II x3 435 and upping the graphics card to a 5770. The 4850 is kind of weak for 1920x1080 resolution. You could save money going with the Antec 200 case ($40). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
