Suggest configuration.

i've got approx. $400 for GPU,CPU,motherboard,RAM,PSU
according to my location,less options in motherboards are available,so suggest 2-3 similar boards and preferably in gigabyte,Msi,asus,biostar as they got more models available....
i want gaming at 1440x900(max. by monitor),with quality set close to ultra in every game,even like crysis and i consider 40fps as enough for the game to be playable.....
i want good video encoding times,in contrast to gaming,it has half importance
also can stretch the budget a little only for a huge benefit...
please help

  2. For 400 you will not get to very high settings in modern games.

    Here is a $500 game system from toms.. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-a-pc-overclock-athlon-ii-x3,2811.html
  3. that system includes case,hdd,optical drive,cpu cooler of worth total $150..
    i don't need them,as i specified earlier,i only need cpu,gpu,ram,mobo,psu...
    really hope of some good replies from you and all of you

    OK, so take out the stuff you don't need, and you have the rest. Unless your drive is a year or less old, you may want to get a new one of those as well.

    I'm confused, the link I posted has every component the builders suggested to be used in a cheap gaming PC. Isn't that what you were looking for?

    yeah that's a solid build but as i got the basic idea from you,how about decreasing some cost of mobo and video card and investing it in like phenom ii 955be
    motherboard like:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130288&Tpk=msi%20740gm-p25

    video like:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131330

    i think the mobo has not to do something in performance?i know it has not got pcie 2.0 but 5770 can't utilize even the x16 as i know....
    or some other ideas?the main thing is----are these parts compatible with each other?
    and also i want to ask that whether there's a big performance difference between low end and high end RAMs on computer?

    While at your resolution you can decrease the video card you need, however the price on that 460 is amazing.

    Also I wouldn't get that motherboard, you are going to want 4 ram slots, not 2. Give you room for the future to upgrade.
  9. How about this setup, a better Mthbd and CPU with the memory and Video card selected by you and Helltech.

    Comes to $406.96 + a $15 rebate. You could even lower the CPU if you felt the need.
  10. If the price is still too high you could also downgrade to this 5670 card @ 89.99 with a $15.00 rebate.
