$700 Newegg Budget Build

Hey guys, this is going to be my first build. I have 700$ to spend on a PC from newegg, not including shipping. I already have the OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I would really appreciate some help picking out parts. The best piece I need is the processor, I'll be running many processor hogging programs. The video card does not have to be the best, but still decent. If you come up with a build that goes a little over 700$ and has like some mail in rebates that would be fine. Thanks.

  1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.549053

    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz

    ASUS EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600

    Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200 RPM

    SAMSUNG 22x DVD+/-R CD/DVD Burner

    COOLER MASTER HAF 922

    CORSAIR 650W Power Supply

    $677 after rebates.
  2. Caviar's and most WD drives are overated. All it is, is the brand.

    Samsung F3 1tb or 500gb.

    1tb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&Tpk=1tb%20f3

    500gb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181&Tpk=500gb%20f3

    The Samsungs are cheaper, faster, with a larger platter size. F3;s are recommended budget HDDs.

    955 also would be a better choice than the 965. With that said change the 965, for a 955. Then pickup this cooler, not a stock one, that way you'll be able to OC the chip. I have a 955, runs great.

    Hyper 212+:

    Rosewill Destroyer case + Rosewill Green 80+ 530W PSU: $89.99
    The Rosewill Greens have a decent reputation

    total $696.92 with all free shipping.
  4. O.O I wouldn't recommend that PSU, Rosewill's in general. Better to pay more than risk the explosion or power failure. Plus the 1075T I don't think is needed. I think if you doing that, he should just get a 1055T. The money saved have it put towards a different PSU. Case wise though that case is fine.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.570461

    How does that change look Screwy? I approve of everything else though. Maybe add the Hyper 212+ I recommended, would allow for some OCing room. After all the 1055T OCs real well.

    Hey, will this build work? I'm getting a 100$ gift card to compusa, so I need to split it up.

  6. Well I don't know about Ultra PSU's, but I guess that's alright. If not then I trust this would be good. Plus that case. http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4362114&CatId=4294

    After MIR it's cheaper, but before the MIR, it's kinda pricier than the Ultra combo.

    Isn't that just the build Screwy made, besides case/psu.

    Do you really want the game? And are you going to OC your CPU?
  7. I do not want the game, and this is my first build. I never OCed anything and I don't know how. The build I posted is over budget, so I can't afford anymore.
  8. Oh then Why don't you just get the CPU Combo I posted?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.570461

    You'll save a couple bucks.
  9. Well I'm no PSU guru, but from what my knowledge is, that PSU should run your system fine. MAYBE even an extra 6850. But if you plan to just keep this build stock like this, the PSU should be fine. The case is fine as well.
  10. Thanks so much. Also, is the system easy to OC to 3.0GHz? I never did it before.
  11. Ummm yes. But watch your temps. But seeing as that is only 200mhz, that shouldn't be a problem with the stock heatsink. That's why I suggested the Hyper 212+ if you wanted to OC further, you can and keep your temps low.

    Check stickies for how to OC.
  12. One more thing, do I need to buy thermal paste and a static wristband?
  13. Static wristband, I think there BS, but I bought one from Frys for a dollar grounding myself to the case. Can never be to safe.

    As for paste, their is pre-applied paste to the heatsink that comes with the 1055T
