I'm new to all this building computers thing, so i will be grateful if someone give me some advice and recommendations for my new build. I'm looking for a good gaming pc, not to powerfull, but a well performance/relatively quiet pc.
Here is what i've got so far:
First, let me start by saying my budget is 800-850$
Monitor res?? 8gb of ram is a little much 4gb is definately enough the gts 450 is good but i cant tell if its best for ur monitor and the games you play the haf 912 is nearly the same as the 922 and it is cheaper. go with asus since ive had great experinces with their boards. if you are using a gtx 450 no need for a 650 watt try 500 or lower
Done links fixed.. Thanks , now i'll get the haf 912. My monitor is a Samsung 22" 1920x1080 LED.. Maybe i'll buy a better graphic card later and use sli.. And well, at least i know both mobos are good and sli ready.. Still thinking about the ram
As others have said, your components are a bit over matched for that 450. Ya might want to save it as a dedicated PhysX card if ya can afford say a 900 MHz 560 Ti.
Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game) for the various options (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below
The HAF -922 was one of my favorite cases, but it's gotten a bit ling in the tooth over time and doesn't have new things like USB 3 on the front of case. Consider the Antec 902 V3. If thinking SLI some time down the road and OC'ing ya might wanna go full tower with the DF-85 or HAF-X.
PSU - XFX Black 750 watter for SLI or 850 watter for SLI + PhysX. Only thing better / cheaper is the CP-850 but only fits in the DF-85. With just one card, no sense going w/ less than the XFX 650 Core edition as the 550 is same price.
MoBo - If wanting to save the SLI option,the WS Resolution can handle twin 560's + dedicated PhysX
Cooling - If budget is an issue, then grab the Scythe Mugen 2 which beats the 212 by 7C. Best air cooler seems to be the Silver Arrow. Best self contained wate rcooler, the Antec 620.
do you want a nvidia gpu because the 6950 is pretty good too. If nvidia definitely 560 ti it has great performance per/dollar. dont get ram because of its fancy heatsinks though.
the scythe mugen is good but if you think about overclocking get the h60 or antec kuhler h20.
Ok.. Definitively going for a new gpu(thanks JackNaylorPE) The Geforce 560Ti. I've decided going for the Asus Mobo, since i've read a lot of good reviews. I'm going down in the ram and getting
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682023127...
since yeah i'm thinking in overclocking ill probably get a better cooler then(thanks youed and JackNaylorPE). Antec kuhler h20
about the case i switch to the antec 908 v3.. and still considering going for full tower..
