More about build complete
  1. this GTS 450 is much better thab a 5670, andis $10 more, but the same price after rebate:

    consider this RAM for a few bucks less up front, better quality than OCZ:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231396

    for $1 more, this is a more reliable power supply, which will handle the 450 and your cpu

  2. Thanks for the suggestions and what games do you think i will be able to play with this rig?
  3. with the 450, pretty much any game coming out in the next two years at high settings in a 1680x1050 screen
  4. ASRock M3A770DE + SAPPHIRE 100284L Radeon HD 5750

    Everything is free shipping or low cost shipping. You can buy that ATA cable from a store, the shipping is more than the cable.
  5. One last question and its about my case should i downgrade so i can get somthing better or keep my current case?
  6. I dont have a store that sells a round ide cable
  7. Don't buy a dual core for gaming.
  8. Its not like im going to be doing much multi tasking
  9. That HDD is smaller and you pay $7.28 shipping making it more expensive.
    More and more games use more than 2 cores, don't buy a dual core. The HD 5750 is about on par with that GTX 450.
    That one is more powerful:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161338&cm_re=hd_5770-_-14-161-338-_-Product
    $99 after rebate
  10. ok about the hardrives thanks for noticing that but if the 450 is more powerfull and same price as 5750 why buy it?
  11. Ill continue to take suggestions ect untill the 25th which then i will be ordering thanks for all the help so far!

  17. Any ideas for the case
  18. Rosewill Destroyer is a great case
  19. Ok it looks nice and has some reviews so i will probably purchase that!
  20. Any one have link of a reliable windows 7 crack?
  21. Any one
  22. ANY ONE?
  23. Is there any one who can help with a Windows 7 free version
  24. Don't ask that question here. You are asking for a way to get a "stolen" version of Windows. You want it then pay for it.
  25. if you want a free OS, check out
    www.ubuntu.com

    Its not windows, but its a great OS
  26. Spent 300 dollars on this rig i had to downgrade the gfx card and some other stuff i had insuffecient fund (ran into some money problems) basicly i got a mobo with included IDE cable and got a XFX 4550 which my friend gave me and told me he could play Crysis and other games decently so i got that off him for 10 dollars

    When parts arrive ill take some pictures of the final build thanks Toms Hardware Community!
  27. Is there any way i can get my OS off my current system and put it on my new one thanks!?
  28. ???
  29. Use the XP, you don't need windows 7.
  30. Am i?
  31. I hope I'm not out of bounds for asking this, but how old are you? Not that your age will have any negative effect o nyou or anything.

    If you've already purchased all your parts and cannot return any of them, then yes, you are pretty screwed until you get more money.

    1GB ddr isn't going to get you anywhere. You'll be lucky if you can even run Windows 7, or Vista. You'll have to settle for xp with just 1GB, and even then you'll be going slow as a boat upstream for the most part. You wont be able to play most, if any, games either :( I'm sorry.

    To run Windows 7 and play games effectively, you'll need at least 4GB or RAM. Win7 takes at least 2GB of RAM to run smoothly. The other 2GB would be used towards your game and other programs and such.

    What RAM did you buy? The G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) 240-pin 1600? If you bought that, then it may just be your mobo that is causing you to have problems. If it's your mobo, save up $80-$100 and you'll be able to buy a new mobo that can make full use of your RAM.

    Save up another $100 and you can buy a one-time install OEM system builder version of Win7 Home Prem and be able to use that. If you ever need to reinstall it, call the Windows support team and they'll reset it for you if you tell them you need to reformat or some such.


    Also, for future reference, do not discuss pirated content on forums such as Tom Hardware, it will only get you a warning, or maybe even banned.


    If you can come up with more money and give a new budget, and maybe post some of the parts you already have (from a previous computer or from the computer parts you already bought) I may be able to help you out with building a (super) budget gaming PC.

    You can play most games (may have to be on mid-settings) with just a duo-core and a couple of hundred in improvements, and that was 3-4 years ago, so it'll probably be better performance for the same price as back then. ....That is if you are upgrading an old computer.
  32. I think he has DDR not DDR3.
  33. Idk if i posted but i didnt buy the ram and i didnt buy the MoBo i thought i had 4 gigs of ddr2 laying arround and i think it is 4 gigs of ddr
  34. IMHO, go ahead and buy a AM3 mobo and DDR3 ram.
  35. That DDR stuff is expensive now, sell it.
  36. I got a AMD mobo and a DDr3 and DDr2 mobo and how much it go for =P ?
  37. what motherboard did you get?
  38. And any of have ideas on how to get Windows 7 off my current machine and onto a new one because the machine im on now i lost my disk but i still have the key
