HELP: $650 Gaming Build! Tags: Build Monitors Systems Product Last response: July 26, 2010 3:59 PM in Systems Share blazed1k July 25, 2010 6:16:41 PM Hi guys! This will be a very first build! Very excited! Any tips for a newbie??? APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Hopefully Tonight BUDGET RANGE: $650 before rebates SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Causal Gaming PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA PARTS PREFERENCES: None OVERCLOCKING: no SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024(Will upgrade monitor in the future) ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I got a free copy of Windows 7 64-bit. Is 64-bit better or worse on gaming? I compiled most this list from reading other similar builds on this forum. One thing i dont understand is why so many prefer this CPU. Is there other CPU you guys would recommend? AND, Do they all work together? The PSU has: 1 x Main connector (20+4Pin) 1 x 12V(P4) 1 x 12V(8Pin) 4 x Peripheral 6 x SATA 2 x Floppy 2 x PCI-E Is that enough? WIll it work with my motherboard? THANKS!

You'd get faster RAM, a larger HDD, a better PSU and the ability to Crossfire down the road. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Solved650 $ Gaming Build.......Need Help!
