1K Build Help

Approximate Purchase Date: In the next month or so

Budget Range: 1000-1200 (Before rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, but not hardcore

Parts Not Required: Keyboard and mouse can be re-used, but I'm open to suggestions for new ones. I'll be running W7, but it doesn't need to be included in the build

referred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or any other reputable website

Parts Preferences: No preference on anything

Overclocking: A little bit, nothing extreme

SLI or Crossfire: What ever will work the best in the budget

Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 to 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I like cases with a window, but that isn't a must. Quite isn't a bad thing, but I've never used a LCS. Also, I would really like USB3 and possibly SATA3

This is a quick build I started, just something I thought looked okay when I was browsing around on NewEgg

CPU: AMD 965
MoBo: ASRock 870 EXTREME3
GPU: XFX 5850
RAM: G.Skill Eco 2x2GB 1600
Case/Optical Drive/HDD: ???

Thanks in advance for any help!!

  2. sorry i put after rebates.
  3. Haha, it's alright, I forgot to mention that I don't need an OS. So yours should still be in about my range. Just curious, why the Mushkin over G.Skill. I really don't know why I would pick one over the other, just wondering if there's a reason one is better?
  4. Those are my 2 favorite brands so you can't go wrong with either one lol. and the g.skill version 2 match is $5 more.
  5. Alright, thanks a lot!
