I am looking to build a new PC, I want to get all the parts from Memoryexpress.com, as they are close to me, and match online prices. Mostly gaming and light photoshop usage. Looking to spend a max of $1350 Canadian. I need a new monitor included in that price, hoping for a 24 incher. Here is what I kind of picked out already, feel free to stomp on it. Thanks in advance for any help, take care.
Corsair Graphite Series 600T Mid Tower
ILC: 843591009713 SKU: MX30870
Case: the HAF 922 is a cheaper and cooler (temp wise) case
Mobo: Asrock extreme4 has same features but is cheaper make sure to update BIOS for better overclocking
RAM: get a ddr3 2x4gb set from g skill mushkin or corsair that runs at 1.5v and 1333 you don't need amazing RAM to overclock SB
HDD: that thing is super slow try for the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb
ODD: I own this and it is crap go for an Asus, or LG instead this is super noisy
GPU: the 6950 1gb is a better deal
PSU: look at the ea750 it is super cheap at newegg right now
OS: http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/windows/buynow/d... if you don't qualify get a friend/family/mafia member to get it for you
^ Agreed. The 6950 1GB gets advantages because of its architecture, that great bandwidth, etc. etc. that are on the 6950 give it advantages at high resolution. At resolutions high than 1920x1080 (or equal) it beasts especially at max settings like 8x AA
Haha its fine Dalauder, (unlesss your being cereal).
Actually that was the whole reason I started the site in my sig, to get money through Amazon Recommendations and stuff like that. Haha, 1500$ was my budget for my build. That or 1000$. IDK yet. But uhh that's very thoughtful dalauder, less you were poking fun XD
No, I like stupid ideas. And acting like somebody's new computer is a legitimate charity is a stupid idea--so I was down with it. I'm kinda new though and I wasn't sure if starting a thread in the New Computer section for soliciting donations for someone random counts as solicatation or violation of rules.
And I've been perm banned for double-clicking post buttons on some sites (slickdeals), so I'm worried because I like Tom's Hardware.
All I need is dual SSD's and a second GTX 470 (got my first for $200). Then I'm all good for 7.9 WEI across the board (they really should reset it to an 8.6 or so). I suppose if one GTX 470 gets a 7.8 stock, I should just OC it for the 7.9? But this isn't a wishlist thread...
tofugutpunch, how's your build coming along? Did you get the 6950 2GB, GTX 560 Ti, or 6950 1GB?
