Iam looking towards on building a new gaming PC within this month if not the next month. The parts doesn't have to be high end, just enough so that i can play modern games. I am in Canada so if anyone is willing to help fix my list, please do. I actually dont know much about recent parts that are recommended within that $500-$600 so please feel free to leave your message. Please and Thank You! Would prefer to be CAD prices.
Budget Range Preferred from $500 - $600 CAD (Can be before or after mail-in-rebates) Or Maximum of $700 if that's a hard price to work with.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This Month Or Next Month
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and more gaming and minor video editing.
OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have a 22" inch Monitor so 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 would be fine
Ok thanks for the info and ill include those things right now. I didn't think i would need to write it in
Btw would it be a good idea to include the combo deal for the follow and which one would be better?
Alright with the new information, I would say stick with the original motherboard I suggested but you can go with Biostar. It's just that Biostar is a budget brand and I have not had much if any experience with them but I know that Gigabyte or Asus are top tier brands.
I'm also going to say no to that Asus 790X too even though I did say Asus was a top brand. It is just that the 790X chipset allows you to crossfire which explains the price increase from other boards. Plus you now specified that you will not be crossfiring so it would be a waste of money.
My board will allow only one GPU and no crossfire so I think this is a perfect match for you as you aren't paying for extra stuff you may not need.
PS. Just a reminder I hope you look around and use PriceCanada with this tight of a budget since I use newegg.ca as a reference since they usually have a wider selection of parts.
Something I found interesting at CanadaCOmputer though is:
Gigabyte USB3 770 AM3 ATX - 84.99 http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct...
Basically the 770 removes the integrated graphics that the 785 had and also only supports one GPU. Plus this is a special version that has 2 USB3 ports I believe.
Just goes to show what a little extra searching can turn up! Happy shopping!
