Alright, after reviewing what you guys said I changed my setup around and upgraded the graphics card to a radeon 5770, I found all the parts on canadacomputers and here is my setup, I still have a question though.
Intel Core i5 750 Quad-Core Socket LGA1156, 2.66Ghz, 8MB L3 Cache,
45nm (Retail Boxed) (BX80605I5750) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4...
So, after changing these parts around.. is it still all compatible with each other? I won't run into any compatibility problems with these parts right? like as soon as I buy these parts and build it correctly I should be good to go?
Also, what PSU should I get... I'm still a bit confused about that, someone suggested 500 watt but after upgrading the graphics card what should I get?
Last but not least, If I'm not going to be overclocking I don't need a CPU cooler right? or should I spend that extra 40 to get a CPU cooler...
Yes, both the processor and the motherboard are the same socket. Gfx car isn´t any problem eigher as long as you have a decent power supply. I would recommend around 500W (Just to stay on the safe side).
All components seem good for your budget pc, though if you can buy a bit better gfx card it would be nice I recommend a hd 5770 or lower if you can buy one (dx11 support).
3 fans are more than good enough.
If you are not doing any overclocking you can stay with the standard one that comes with the cpu, though you may want to change it since its not a super one that comes bundled. I recommend a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (Cheap, and good).
What that means that you will need a 64-bit operating system in order to run more than 4GB RAM, but as you only have 4GB you can run it in 32-bit. You can run it in 64-bit operating system also, I recommend taking 64-bit OS because its the future(same price as 32-bit OS)
You will need a DVD or BLU-ray reader if you want to read discs. Everything else will come bundeled. Get a Wireless Network adapter(USB prefferably) if you are far away from the router.
One thing I will reccommend is to change where your buying parts from. If your in canada, Canada Comptuers is waaay cheaper than tigerdirect.ca, and right now they're doing free shipping as well. I've seen some parts at least 50-100$ cheaper. Its even cheaper than newegg.ca.
well I cant seem to find the motherboard I wanted to get on canadacomputers.. and intel isn't one of the major motherboard brands like gigabyte or asus so can anyone recommend me another motherboard with a similar price that has audio available with it and will work with my setup?
a 500 watt is fine. Corsair or Antec is good, so is Seasonic. OCZ or Coolermaster is like just below those.
Hey how about this one? I know its not one of the brands that you recommended but its 750 watt for the same price of a like 500 watt corsair.. and it has lifetime warranty so I think its a good brand.. ratings are all above 4.5 and its tigerdirects top selling PSU (only problem is canadacomputers doesn't have it) but its cheaper then most of canadacomputers psu's..
Some people have it and like it. I wouldn't trust it. Think of it this way. The Corsair 500W is more expensive than the Ultra 750W. Some of that is the higher cost of a good brand, but some of it is probably because Ultra pays less for its components.
That should be fine. Do you intend to add another graphics card later on?
maybe.. if I get more into gaming and have the money available I will definitely upgrade my graphics card, or are you referring to having another graphics card using SLI? (because I might POSSIBLY do that as well)
