- This will cost me around $1700 , but i was wondering if i could possibly make it better, my budget max is ~2100.
- Also, since Intel are calling back their CPU's is there a great replacement or upgrade for that? (hopefully it says in the budget range).
- Would a cooler be necessary with this setup?
- Is a SSD also necessary for a powerful gaming rig?
Excuse me but what is Bulldozer?
Still didn't get an explanation why a SSD is a necessarily important for a 2k budget pc.
Most of the expensive parts on the pc that push the budget over 1300, are for instance CPU and GPU, what do you mean you wouldn't spend 1300 for this build?
Thank you for reading.
At this point in time, things have become so dirt cheap, my old budget build of 1500 could be done at 1250$ for 2x the CPU performance and 1.5x the GPU power. That is what he means. It used to be 45nm with the i5 750 being the ideal for a 1500$ build. But now the 2500K and 69xx, 68xx, 560 Ti, and 570. Have brought a cheaper aspect to builds.
Refer to my page in my siggy.
Anyway, if you willing to risk it, 1200$ would be enough, even a 1300$ build. I had a budget build for the 2500K but I took it off because I don't want to advertise something that has a flaw. I would hold off until the fix.
Bulldozer... is the 32nm CPU for AMD. It would be a comeback into the CPU game for them as before all they could do is price war. But because of the P67 game, that screwed them up. However the SATA II issue has helped AMD because now both are on even playing field. Bulldozer will be released in Q2 Late. SB will be re-released in April-May area.
I guess its better to wait for th Bulldozer, considering its release is the same time intel sends out its CPU's again, but the bulldozer will be a way better option and possibly at a good price, Anyone can give a price estimate on it ?
