Help me on my Build Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: August 3, 2010 3:27 PM in Systems Share sbjluke August 3, 2010 2:10:11 AM I've made this build and it comes out just at $1100 with shipping. I was wondering if its good for gaming, homework, streaming, and other high school / college kid stuff. Let me know if anything doesn't work together. I was also wondering if I need any extra heat sinks, or fans. CPU/GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Would it be worth the extra money to invest in an Intel i7 930 with the according MoBo, or is this fine for what I want? I also want to make sure that this is completely upgradeable, and will function strong for me for 5 or 6 years, with occasional upgrades to keep it going. Will it meet my needs? More about : build banthracis August 3, 2010 3:27:04 PM No need for i7 series outside workstation builds. Extra threads gives you zero benefit outside those cases. Save some money and get this PSU/HD combo instead. A 650W can xfire 5850's fine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... You can also get the GA 790 UD4 mobo instead. It's $15 less after rebate, and there's no real difference. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedHelp me with my new build.
