Under 700$ build with taxes Tags: Build Systems Last response: January 28, 2011 8:07 PM in Systems Share greenhold January 28, 2011 3:45:30 PM Hi, I'm making a build for around 700$ with taxes, Canadian prices. AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE : http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=47459 Asus MB : http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=47459 WD HDD Caviar Black Sata 6gb/s : http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=52888 G.Skill 2x2GB ram, DDR3, 1600: http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=42745&promoid=12... And I'm still wondering what Case/PSU and Video Card to choose. Tnx for Help More about : 700 build taxes Dougx1317 January 28, 2011 3:51:34 PM For your video card, use this article to find the best card in your price range. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... For PSU, buy at least a 600W name-brand power supply. (Thermaltake, Seasonic, OCZ, Corsair, FSB, ect.) For the case, it doesn't make as much as much of a difference. Just get one in your budget with the features and looks you want. TheScorpion January 28, 2011 4:10:37 PM choose a case with a good airflow , and don't forget the aftermarket CPU fan because the stock fan that came with 955 is very noisy i just replaced it today and the new one is really quiet Related resources Looking to build a gaming capable Intel desktop, Under $ 700 - Forum Need a coding and gaming build under $ 700 - Forum Max 700 $ Gaming Build with taxes - Forum New Build Under $ 700 ? - Forum Under $ 700 build help - Forum Can't find your answer ?

As for GPU, I'm looking at the 460 GTX or for later 560 Ti, What do you guys think of barebones like this one : http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Wisecracker January 28, 2011 7:01:05 PM From the Egg-Can: Asus M4A79T Deluxe 790FX / PhII 945: $250'ish after rebate (got mine in a month) Not sure what you are looking for in a motherboard, but that sure is a nice one. The Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB for $69CAN looks good, too. With your other stuffs that would put you in the range of a $200 graphics card (not counting your OS) - a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB for around $170 should work nicely.
