Could anyone help me out on what to buy for an i7 930 build to make it at least under $1500, but still play games like Crysis, Aion Online, etc... I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. But I need suggestions for fans, case, gpu, mobo,psu, and hdd. For the memory, I was thinking about getting Mushkin Enhanced Redline, 6 GB. Thanks in advance. I'm not really good at creating builds that don't have extremely expensive things.
You won't have to dish out much for crysis engine based games. I have a core 2 duo/e6600/4gb/500gb/evga 8800 gts (nvidia) and I get ~60 FPS in combat. Fortress raids in that game are ridiculous and would lag any computer to all hell. My rig was $950.00, 3 years ago. It's probably $300 cheaper now...lol. Essentially what I'm saying is, put your money on a quality power supply, components that help other components rather than high end parts now. I'd wait for more deals to come along, that new GTX card by nvidia is coming on April 12th...may want to keep an eye out for it
I'd say go with silvune's build with some changes.Instead of the vapor-x edition get the cheaper regular one and change that seagate with a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb.Vappor-x I think isn't worth the premium and the seagates .12 I think I read some reports about loss of data but anyway the samsungs are faster.
