Hey guys its been awhile since I last asked for help on a build but you havnt let me down so far. Ill be upgrading the wifes 6 year old PC so about the only thing Ill be keeping is the case.
Approximate Purchase Date This month
Budget Range 800$ max
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and surfing
Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard etc. Just upgrading the tower
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg
Country of Origin US
Parts Preferences: CPU: thinking I5 750
MB: no clue, Ive had good luck with gigabyte and ansus
PSU: no clue
Vid card: Thinking 5770
Ram: 4gig ddr 1600 ?
DVD Burner: no clue
HD: 500 to 750 GB sata 6.0 if it works in budget
No Crossfire and not Overclocking
And I will need a OS but wont include it in the 800 unless you guys can figure out how. Think thats all you need so see what we can come up with and thanks for the help again
Thanks for the reply they both look good. One question I have is about the hard drives, the 3.0gb vs 6.0gb. I see the cache is 32 vs 64 will this make a differance I will notice. I can still stay in budget by using a WD black 6.0 HD and a motherboard like
GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
should I go that rout or stick with the 3.0 ?
Ok one last thing, Ill be going with the AMD sys to save a few bucks. I noticed that the ansus MB is 6gb and the HD is 3gb are these compatable or do I need to swith one? Ill be ordering in the next few days and dont want to have to RMA.
And thanks for the help you guys came through again
I will go with the 955 set up for cost savings but thanks for the other sugestions. Since its a unlocked cpu was thinking about a mild OC to 3.4 ghz or so. Now before you laugh at me about this case it has been running a OC xp-2600 for about 5 or 6 years and performed well. I will be gutting this and using high flow fans to get the air flow. If I get a cooler for this cpu what would fit? and what would you recomend.
Old case I'll be using http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
So what HSF will fit in that old case? with the parts Im going to use. Or will I need one if I only go to 3.4 using the multiplier. Does the 955 and 965 use the same HSF? Dont want it to run hot she will be using this set up for atleast 4 years or till it just wont run the programs that she needs.
