This is my first time making a computer, i would like to ask for any suggestions that people have for me when making my budget pc.
Budget Range: $600 - $800
System Usage: Online FPS and MMORPG
Parts Not Required: monitor, printer, keyboard, mouse, OS
Preferred Website: any
Part Preference: any
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution:1920 x 1080
If ur not going to do anything CPU intensive but Gaming go with the i3 2100. Better gaming performance.
U can't overclock tho.
U can stick with 965 BE too. Good CPU with better multi tasking capabilities.
The corsair 500w will be a good PSU with 80% energy efficiency.
ur original budget for the GPU was 120.
the 5770(6770) are good cards at that price.
But if u want good gaming cards and to play at max settings get a 6850 atleast. (around 150$ after rebates) or 6870 at around 170$(after rebates). or a 5850 @ 155$ after rebates.
Swap the Hdd with a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB SATA2 and u might get it at same price with Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200RPM SATA3 6GB/s. that has 500 GB less storage space,swap the XFX Radeon HD 6850 1GB. with Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme 1GB GDDR5 and u save some cash plus its even faster (thats what this bench says http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/295?vs=291 ) other than that ammar711's build looks really powerfull
I like a lot of what has been said and here's my recommendation: go absolutely barebones on everything but your CPU and GPU; get a 2500k and spring for a 6950 if possible. The 6950 is actually one of the best values on the market if you buy it reference and unlock it. The 2500k *is* the best value on the market, as well as a great performer. The cheapest I could price this out came to the mid $800s, but if you can pull it, it's the best value out there.
