Hello, I am new to this site and I hope to get some help with building my first computer. The computer will be used mainly for gaming -- not much video editting or such. I live in South Korea, thus, the prices are different and I can't set a budget yet. I just want to get an idea of what parts I should buy in order to have an efficient gaming pc which can run almost all games at 1600x1--- res.
The processor I have in mind to start the build is the i7 870, along with a GTX 460 or HD 6850 for a GPU. The rest, I need help with.
228,480 won~ 291,000 won for i5 760
199,540 won~ 270,340 won for x4 965
Also, I just took a look at the bench between the two CPUs. I think I will go with the intel lol. Does the i5 760 have a special technology --hyperthreading-- or something like it?
Then What about the motherboard? I really have trouble with picking motherboards. I just want a board that will allow me to overclock the most. However, more importanly, I want USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB feature as gkay09 mentioned above.
And as for the graphic cards, HD 6850 would be faster than the GTX 460 and would run those games comfortably at High-Max setting @ your screen's resolution, but I doubt with AA and AF enabled though...
Yeah, I have read those reviews before. However, I still think that a little downgrade in performance is worth the trade for those other features.
I read that the 6850 doesn't have voltage control and that is runs hotter than a 460. I am thinking about jumping to 6870 or just 460.
CPU: i5 760
MOBO: asrock p55 extreme 4
GPU: gtx 460 or hd 6870 (depending on the overall cost)
now I need to worry about the PSU, which costs a butt load for some strange reason. Anything over 500w costs $80-$200, and I'm planning on a 600w-700w. Will a 600w be alright, or am I fine with a 500w supply?
Just make sure you get the PSU from Tier 1 manufacturer - Corsair/ Seasonic/ Silverstone/ PCP&S/ Antec EA or TP or ECO Series / Cooler MAster Real Power or Silent PRO series/ even OCZ Fatality and Mod series are fine...
