I am currently building my first computer. For the longest time I have been buying XPS, and I feel that I should try my hand at building my own.
I am looking to make this a gaming computer for MMORPG's mostly. Graphic intensive games like Crysis 2, and Tera-online.
I did a little research and picked these components atm. Any feedback would be appreciative.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
CORSAIR XMS 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M1A1600C9 x2
I have a 650w psu, and I thought it would cover the power.
Would the vid card be enough for those games, or should is there two that I can x-fire?
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Hi end gaming, MMORPG mostly. Rift, Tera-online, Crysis 2
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, case, hard drive( have one 750gb internal, and one 500gb WD external). Current PSU: X-Power 585 OEM hec HP585D 585W ATX12V Power Supply. Might want to replace that
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, please
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: Would like to stick with AMD, and Asus. Have done a little research, but not much. Suggestions welcome. Have Gigabyte mo-board that works well. Asus vid card that doesn't work the best.
This is the 4th time I've seen AznShinobi post that build. It's good.
I'd put down an extra $100 to get a Samsung Spintpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive, CX630 or OCZ SXS 2 600W PSU, Antec 300 Illusion case, GTX 560 Ti, and motherboard with two PCI-e slots though. But I'm not that tied to a specific price point, just value per dollar.
GeForces do better in WOW, but other MMORPGs may be different.
There's a combo for a $190 with the i3-2100 & mobo w/ two PCI-e slots on Newegg. Worse CPU, better mobo.
I reposted my stats again with some updated information. Sorry for not supplying it earlier. I love the way the i5 and the vid card looks and I plan to pick those up asap. I also changed the amount I can spend too. A vacation fell through so I have more money. I appreciate all the input you guys are giving me.
If you're spending $800, you should probably find a way to get that to fit an i5-2500K, a P67 motherboard, and GTX 560 Ti. I'm pushing the GeForce graphics card because some MMORPGs like WOW do much better on GeForce.
I'm aware the 20MHz is negligible, but really the only difference between our suggestions were the hard drives. I had to point out something. I think the Twin Frozr II looks better too, which counts at this point.
Details are to be decided by the OP. Your build actually has links though, so that's probably better.
