What do you think about the build? The vendor is trusty, but he isnt into gaming, so i dont know if this build is good for what im looking for. Im looking for a computer that can run actual games (Battlefield Bad Company 2,APB,etc) in high with a 1280x1024 resolution and that can last for a loooooong time with just upgrading some parts like GPU for example. Thanks in advance!
Ty for your fast reply MadAdmiral , thing is here in spain prices are much higher, for example that monitor that costs 190$ here costs 200€ which translates into almost 270$ My conversion to dollars was made after buying in Euros.
I'm just demonstrating what a decent gaming build would look like. Frankly, I just picked a monitor that would fit the budget. Any 1080p monitor would be fine. You could also drop the CPU to a X3 440 and be just fine (saves about $70 or so).
Very good CPU, probably overkill for just gaming, certainly for a few years. Nice amount of fast RAM.
Do you know more about the RAM, such as the brand, CAS latency and voltage? Make sure that the voltage is 1.65V or below, as above this can damage Core i CPUs.
It would also be nice to know the model of harddrive he is giving you.
The case should fit the 5850.
I don't know if that is a reliable power supply, for that reason I wouldn't use it, however it should be fine for one 5850.
If I was you I'd ask him to change the CPU to the i5-750, use the saved money to get a PSU that you can verify the quality of. Perhaps if he gives you a list of the ones he has with prices, then we could look over it to find the best one.
The motherboard only has 1 PCI-E slot, so it can only take one card. The 5850 is a very good gaming card, especially for 1280x1024 resolution. It doesn't use much power, so I think a quality 500W PSU would do for one of those, seeing as you are thinking about upgrading the GPU over time, then a ~600W would be a safer bet for futureproofing.
