    I'm not too sure about how it will run games but you forgot to get a PSU unless you already have one that you didnt list.

    It's part of case, so it won't run games? does anyone know if it will?

    Oops, sorry about that, I didnt see it. I am no computer expert by any means but I mean it will run games but I am not too sure how well. You probably are going to want more than 2 RAM for sure and if you can spend a bit more you probably should so your computer doesnt get outdated in a few weeks or months... Sorry for lack of specifics, I just know the general stuff about PCs :P

    I actually just found 4gb for cheaper! lol here's the link http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231275
  4. you need to change mainboard because that one doesnt support ddr3 memory

    I see that now, I believe the guide iI got this build from has an error, they provided me that board and said it has ddr3 support, but it doesn't so I'll fix that, can it play games on high on a 1024 by 768 monitor?
  6. Negative on free PSU with case but either way at that price point you can mimic Toms $500Dec 2010 SBM at $432AR

    Incompatible + weird choices to be honest

    Also u picked out a 740G chipset

    I would rate any of these chipsets

    740G
    690G
    GF 7XXX
    NForce 5xx/6xx

    far inferior than any entry level AM2+ out in 2008 due to

    a. HT Limitation when paired with any AM2+/AM3 chip
    b. Still stuck on PCIe gen 1.0/1.1, true AM2+ had migrated to PCIe gen 2.0 as of 2008

    Gigabyte NForce 630a

    Taken from Tom's september $400 pc
    How about I do this
    AMD Athlon II X3 440

    CPU Cooler
    AMD boxed heatsink & fan
    0
    Motherboard
    ASRock M3A770DE

    Cooler Master Elite 460 RS-460-PSAR-J3 460 W
    $30
    Optical
    Samsung Black 22x DVD Burner SATA Model SH-S223C

    but change the cpu to a rana 455 and there you go, also the gfx card to a radeon 4850 1gb could It say run crysis on high?
  10. The HD 5670 may have DX11 but in reality is an even worse GPU than the HD 4850 which is in turn spanked by the 768M GTX 460 - up the chip to a Rana 440 and ditch the CM Extreme 460 : way inferior built to the 80+ Antec and i wouldn't recommend these even in my sub $300 builds so...


    7200.12 500 Seagate/Samsung F3 500 are in the WD 500 Black country performance and prolly slightly better so go with either of these and $39.99 for the former is a steal

    I'm sorry could you list all the pieces you reccomend in a list? I'm not on the same level of knowledge as you, so get he gtx 460 and also please tell me which motherboard, cpu RAM and tell if they're compatible or not, all for a decent price like under $450 please, I'm not ready to buy atm so about 2-3 months from now

    One issue is that I Do not have a job as I'm rather minor agewise, so If I do indeed have the only option to get the 4850, will it still run games decent, and soon I can upgrade the gpu to an even better one since the monitor is only 1024 by 768 and I feel comfortable with that? So overall I'll save $60 and put the cost under $400 and upgrade later on in the year when money provides
  14. In gaming the most important component is the GPU so if your GPU isnt capable your whole system would be a waste (for gaming)

    Yes, the gpu is fully capable, especially for small screens, the 4850 1gb is honestly not that bad for the price
  16. Ok, then why don't you get a 4830 for 60$ off Newegg. The suggestions Batchuka has are REALLY GOOD. I don't know why you wouldn't take them. If your budget totals do be 421$, Batchuka's is only 24$ more.

    If you are FOCUSED on getting a 4830 then try out my build in my siggy. Just change the motherboard to this one.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157195&cm_re=770_motherboard-_-13-157-195-_-Product

    And the psu is 40$ off Newegg, not 60$.

    That'll give you better CPU perf than Batchuka's build, but worse graphically. Doesn't matter though at your small resolution. However the 460 would handle Crysis and future proof you better.
  17. for a few $ more you could have this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130572 $95 after rebates

    I guess I've been searching and liked the 4850 for a bout 3 months now,seen all the videos, and know it works for what I need it to, $150 is just TOO much for me, is the gts 450 any better, is that good enough, the most I'll spend on a gpu is $100 and the 450 and hd 4850 seem to be what fits me
  19. Overall Trust us..Its not very good to buy single components over a long period of time...If your budget is limited just wait and save up. Batchuka posted and excellent build for the price and it would do want you want and then some...
  20. I suppose I'll just save up for Bachuka's build since it's only like $20 more, and you guys are sure that it can do a swell performance on high in most games?
  21. I don't understand though! HOW IS 150$ TOO MUCH? If the budget ends up being the same....

    Yeah AstroTC is right on that foot too.

    450 GTS is on par with the 4870 most of the time.
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/304?vs=316

    The reason being, from 2008 stuff to the current gen. You can expect at least a 25% upgrade from components.
  22. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/304?vs=315
    460 768mb vs 4870

    Keep in mind your getting the 4850 not the 4870. And it just wooped it. Even in power consumption etc. etc.

    so i'm better off spending $150 correct? yeah the budget is actually the same so I'm a bit happier now
  24. For same/near budget and for a vastly superior GPU for games? No brainier lol
