What do you guys think of this really really budget build of $560?



What do guys think? This is going to be my first homebuilt computer. Is there something I can change like switching from a i3 to i5? My budget is really tight and cannot go over $600. By the way, do you guys think I'm missing something?

P.S. I do not need mice and operating systems because I have them already.

  1. Sorry about that broken link, try this one:

    http://secure.newegg.ca/Shopping/ShoppingCart.aspx?Submit=view
  2. Still a broken link... Can you just list the parts individually with links?
  3. GPU - The HD 5770 is a good card and at that $90 price point (after rebate), it is a good deal.

    DVD - That ASUS will be fine.

    COMBO - Not bad... I am not a fan of the Seagate hard drive, but the bundled price is is ok. The power supply isn't the greatest either, but is enough for that build.

    KEYBOARD - This is a preference thing. As long as you are happy with it...
  4. So am I missing anything? Do you recommend anything else or any other changes?
  5. That combo does not include a psu. You should look into getting a low wattage psu, such as this Antec Earthwatts 430: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371034&Tpk=earthwatts%20430
    It has a 6pin pci cable, so you are good to go with the 5770.
  6. All that + shipping + the ridiculous tax in Canada = $750+

    My budge is $600 (TAX, SHIPPING INCLUDED) so that's a bit too high for me.

    The case in my combo includes a 500 Watts power supply with a single 6 pin. By the way, I live in Canada so I can't buy stuff off newegg.com, only newegg.ca
  8. ^ I second that build, if you can afford it.
  9. Sorry, I'm kinda of a noob in terms of internet language. What does "second" mean?
  10. Lol, it's courtroom talk. Means I agree.

    Check this out a decent gaming system ,but overclocking is limited.

  12. ^ looks ok, but I would substitute the gfx for that sapphire 5850 on newegg, and change the psu to a OCZ ModXstream 500w psu.
  13. Unless I'm looking at the wrong ram, that's 1.65v 1600. You can't change ram speed so get 1333 and you want 1.5v.
  14. Here's the same build but with some changes. the ram has been changed to suit the voltage, and the hdd gets upgraded to 1.5TB . Also the power supply has been changed. Take a look:

  15. looks good, except 430 watt is a bit low for a 6850. You could run it most likely, but you won't have much room to upgrade. Check out this OCZ: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016&cm_re=modxstream-_-17-341-016-_-Product
    it's semi modular and has more wattage. Seems like a good deal to me at least.
  16. 5850 performs near a 6870 and costs less but is currently out of stock. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102932
