I need help Here. I'm trying to get the lowest price Sandy Bridge build that is still high quality.

I can't really decide what combo's to choose out of the ones I am going to list. I know that I will be using the one below for the motherboard and RAM.

But out of these which ones should I chose?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.634203
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.628504
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.628479


Could somebody give me rough idea of what I should use? I don't think I should use the HX 850 and GTX 560 one because I will probably not be using SLi or Crossfire and it just adds to the price.

I want to stay nvidia based, and this will be going in a Storm enforcer case with blue LED fans. I don't know if I will overclock so I don't know if should buy a 2500k or not.

  1. PSU is way overpriced if you are only using one card and it's a 560 ti. You should be look at 500-650w PSUs for around $60-80.

    The monitor/GPU deal is pretty good I'd go with that. However, the mobo/ram deal I don't like. You can usually get 8GB for $70 if you want for a rebate or promo code.
  2. Is it because it is 1600Mhz Cas8? Otherwise I don't know.
  3. yes, CAS 8 is generally overpriced, and not worth it. you can usually get a great deal on 1600mhz cas9
  4. That's a d@mn expensive board if you plan on only running a single vid card. Not sure what you plan on doing though...you have a 600w psu in one link, and an 850w psu in another link.

    Better yet how about you let us know what you plan on doing...going with dual 560's or a single 560.

    Sorry about that haha. Would you like me to edit my post in that format?

    But I will more than likely be doing single card, maybe SLi in the future. If I would like to SLi I would need a better power supply, obviously.
  6. Hate to spam the forum but nothing?
  7. go for 750w+ for GTX 560 sli

    i meant as in if you plan to get SLI in the future, you should get a 750w or higher now. otherwise 600w is plenty for one gtx 560
  10. yeah, I doubt I'd need two 560's. If I would I'd probably get a single more powerful card. Other build advice?
