Hi, im looking to put a new gaming pc together.
Its going to be used mainly for gaming, I have some expierience with building my own system (built 2 which both survived 3 years) but i want your opinions.
I live in europe and my budget is 900.00 EUR = 1,161.86 USD (can be a little more or less).
I prefer building the pc myself but if you find a pre bould that is cheap even when adding the shipment costs, feel free to suggest it.
I checked out newegg but they currently don't ship internationally so thats not really and option (sadly because exange rates are working in my favour and all the parts get imported here which also makes the prices higher)
, so please remember that the components will cost a little more for me.
Intel fan but if you think amd would be better than also ok.
This is what I put together myself:
Cpu: i5 750 (190 euro = 245 USD)
Gpu:HIS HD5850 Turbo 1GB or the club3d one -> same price, don't which is better (cooling) (257 euro = 331 USD)
mobo: ASRock P55 Deluxe ( 114 euro = 147 USD)
Case: Haf 932 ( 126 euro = 162 USD) (This case is preferred, but if you really want, you can advise another case)
PSU: CoolerMaster GX 750W (possible future xfire) ( 77 euro = 99 USD)
Hard drive: Samsung 1TB (59 euro = 76 USD)
RAM: Kingston 4GB(2 x 2GB), 1333MHz, DDR3, Non-ECC, CL9, ( 87 euro = 112 USD)
dvd drive: LG GH22NP (15 euro = 19 USD) (already have burner on my laptop)
925 Euro total = 1192 USD -> this is the max I want to spend.
I looked also into an i7 build with socket 1356 mobo but then I only had enough money for hd 5770 gpu and dual channel memory, so not really ideal.
PS: I might get crossfire later. And also have a 250gb harddrive here somewhere which i might throw in it in RAID.
1st change from the turbo 5850 to a regular one (sapphire is recommended)
2nd change mobo to asus p7p55d-e pro
3rd change from the haf 932 to 922 (basiclly same cooling and almost the same size)
4th change psu to a corsair 750 tx or to an xfx 650 (both can cf)
5th change the ram to g.skill eco 4gb 1600 cl7 @1.35v
if all this is overbudget change to an amd build(which is more future proof bec. lga1156 is going to be replaced by lga1155 in q1 2011)
if u do change to amd i would recommend getting either the gigabyte 890xa ud3 or the asus m4a89gtd pro/usb3 and get the phenom ii x4 955
