I am trying to build a mid range performance pc, i have a tight budget and trying to fit something in the $1200 - 1400 ish.
Take a look at it and plz comment where can i remove/add stuff
Note: I RLY WANT THAT CASE
- prolly not going for sli/crossfire setup
- no overclocking
- first time building one, so gimme a break if my choices didnt make sense
- Let me know if there are premade built/close to this one if its cheaper
The GTX465 is not as good as the GTX460. The 460 runs cooler and is an overclocking beast ( very easy to do ). Asus, EVGA, MSI or Gigabyte are all great brands just look for the 1GB models. $220-240 depending on brand. No need to buy a factory overclocked version as they will all overclock quite well.
Do NOT buy a Xion power supply. Stick with Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling or XFX and you will be good. A 500-550w model from any of these manufacturers will be enough for just about any single graphics card computer. This will leave you a bit of room to upgrade in the future.
The Samsung Spinpoint F3 is a bit faster hard drive than the WD FALS you have picked out and is generally a bit cheaper. WD does make a newer 1GB model that is just a bit faster than the Spinpoint. It is an Cavier Black 1GB FAEX model but is generally alot more money and not very much faster. The Spinpoint F3 is about the best "bang for your buck" drive.
not all power supplies are made equal some companies will skimp a bit here and there others will skimp totally and build a 500 watt power supply and stick a 1000 watt label on it then you get you good brands as mentioned who wil give you exactly what you pay for
Looks like obsidian86 and Davcon have you on the right track.
You can still save some money on the power supply if you do not plan on running more than 1 graphics card at the time but that XFX is an excellent choice for futureproofing.
