Hello. First, thanks for helping me out before; months ago I had a PC put together with you guys but I didn't order due to lack of funds. Now, I'm planning on purchasing my parts this coming week. I already got a list put together, and was wondering if I could get some help with the compatibility?
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This coming week
BUDGET RANGE: $700 - $1000 (below $1000 if possible)
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, internet surfing, school work (it won't see heavy duty use, such as two monitors. Price I'm looking at really does reflect how I'll use it : )
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: The monitor
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg if possible please?
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: U.S.A.
PARTS PREFERENCES: I'm going for AMD since it's cheaper, really lol
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'd be more than happy if it could play modern day PC games on the Normal setting or better.
Well, you're right - AMD is cheaper. But I happen to have an i5 750 config from about a half hour ago, so i thought I'd show you a faster cpu, faster video card, larger psu, larger/faster hard drive that costs about $80 more, MIRs/Combos not included
Seriously, you can probably ignore the cpu/mobo/vid card if you really want to, and just check the other parts. Or use the HD 5770 instead of the GTX 460 if your gaming resolution is less than 1920 and save $40:
