Hey everyone. Im planning to build a new pc, asap.. (whenever the army decides to give me my bonus)
I've already got a build saved on newegg that I like pretty well that comes out to be something like $2465. But Im curious as to what you guys could build me and stay within this budget.
I dont need mouse/keyboard or speakers, but I DO NEED a 24" monitor. I want to go with an i7, computer will be for gaming mainly, web browsing... thats about it.
The only things I ask to be left the same is the MOBO and the Case( I find this case to be one of the best for the money, with me adding extra fans, should have great airflow). Now, Show me what you guys can create and stay within the budget so I can see if it's any better than my build. Thanks guys!!
Why not two 5850's instead of the GTX 470's, which will allow you to drop down to the Corsair CMPSU-750HX or 850HX and still be in good shape. A recent benchmark showed little difference with the Superclocked version, so you'll be better off with the stock speeds if you stick with the GTX 470's.
I know you don't want to change motherboards, but I would HIGHLY recommend going with the ASUS P6X58D-E instead, which provides the newer USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0Gb/s support.
