Well im buying the pc before this month ends, and these are the new changes I made, I just need an input:
Gonna use it for Gaming>Internet>Office applications(word).
I have a HAF 932 case, an ATI 5850 Twin Frozr II videocard from MSI, mice,keyboard,OS.
Im buying from www.ewiz.com , bought the 5850 from them and everything is perfect.
I have always used Intel, but im open to the AMD Phenoms II x4 and x6.
OVERCLOCKING: Yes, if the motherboard has the option, such as ASUS Turbo,MSI oc Genie or the one from Gygabyte... if the motherboard doesn't has any automatic overclocking then no.
I have an ATI 5850 Twin Frozr II videocard from MSI, and im buying a second one in 2 years, approx.
My monitor is 1920x1080 LG 32" model 32LH40
-PSU modular IF possible, crossfire ready, and silent(i had an ocz stealth x stream 700 watts, very good psu BUT at load is noisy, and even after i finished gaming the psu didnt want to idle and kept at load noise.
-My max is around $750(on cart without counting shipping...shipping to were I live is $90 but it's safe and it arrives in 3 days, I live @ Mexico and this is the best option for me).
1. 16/16 if u aren't running say HD 5970 Hemlock isn't a deal breaker vs 8/8
2. CHIV is overpriced and not advisable at your budget range
3. FYI my $750AR config if it's hepful to ya Features USB/SATA III and 8/8/ CF capability
Thanks for your answer and it looks like a very good build, but I allready got HAF 932 case,5850 videocard,windows 7 OS, keyboard,mice. I need power supply,motherboard,drive,hard drive, heatsink, memory ram, processor.
Well to be honest, my current pc im using is as follows:
Processor: Intel core 2 duo E8400 @3.00ghz.
Motherboard: Intell classic dg33bu(does NOT allows overclocking).
Memory ram: 4gb 800mhz ddr2.
Hard drive: 320gb 5200 rpm.
Drive: 40x cd 10x dvd.
Power supply: Ocz stealth 700 watts(getting noisy and I wont use it again for any future build).
Video card: ATI 5850 twin frozr II(bought 2 weeks ago).
Is it worth to buy a new pc? considering I can sell this one to my brother or father plus everything is 2 years+ old except video card.
Forgot to say...I play on 1920x1080 resolution on a 32" HDTV from LG model 32LH40
Well, your gaming performance won't improve that much if you're keeping cards. Your general usage shouldn't change much either, since the 8400 isn't bad for a dual-core. The main differences (apart from a slight general improvement) would be futureproofing (as hard as that is) and things that are heavily cpu-based.
