  1. ^ the i7 9xx is a socket 1366 and wont fit that board - socket 1156...
    You would need i5 7xx or i7 8xx CPUs...

    And HDD - 2TB Green ? No boot drive ?
  2. Ahh yes
    CPU: i7 860
    HDD1: 2TB Green
    HDD2: 60GB SSD
  3. ^ Hmm maybe the i7 870 for just $5 more ?
    Also you should know that this build is kinda overkill, but if you are fine with it, then its ok...

    BTW i am expecting to be able to play the following games in full hd and min 20/25 fps

    GTA IV
    Dirt 2
    MW2
    BFBC2
    Mafia II
  6. Are you fine with a mATX desktop build, maybe with a case like this ?

  7. And budget?
  8. If you want to bring down the price, then you would have to do these changes
    CPU - i5 760 - This is also very good for gaming and performs better than the AMD X4 965...

    SSD- You would have to drop the plan for now...You wont notice any in-game performance increase too, though would reduce boot time and load time...

    HDD - Get the Samsung F3 1TB for now...

    Graphcis card - HD 5870.
  9. ^ or gtx 460 :/

    I live in norway, so its hard to say my budget, but it all together cost 9800 Norwegian Kroner
    about the same as 1300-1500usd
  11. Hmm...Any online store links ?
  12. is Norwegian links ok ?
  13. USA would be preferred.. www.newegg.com its really an easy site to navigate, type in anything in the search and bop! it there
  14. ^^ Yes Norwegian would be good as we can calculate the total too...

    NVM, i foundout that was the cheapest version of the 470 GTX
    so im stuck with the LAST thing: What 470?


    470GTX from ASUS
    470GTX from EVGA
    470GTX from Gainward
    470GTX from Zotac
  16. Asus, EVGA, Zotac, NOT GAINWARD

    EVGA = Best
  17. ^ I would suggest this card over any other GTX 470,...
    Yeah it costs more, but well worth it if you are fine with the premium...
    - Factory overclocked
    - Consumes less power than the stock GTX 470 even though it is overclocked
    - Temps are also less
    - Sound levels far lower...

  18. Ok, so all the specs i wrote are fine, but i get the Gigabyte n470SO-13I instead of the eVGA 470 GTX? is the gigabyte better than the eVGA? just wanna be 100% sure
  19. ^ Generally EVGA cards are better, but this one is you can say an exception. Also in US EVGA is preferred because of the Lifetime warranty...
