Parts Preferences: No, not really.But I want to use it with 3 monitors @ Eyefinity so ATI.
Overclocking: No.(Scared of it)
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe(not sure of compatibility with Eyefinity)
Monitor Resolution: x3 1600x900
Additional Comments: I'm not the kind of person that stalks new games like Crysis 2.I enjoy classic games like Team Fortress 2, also I currently have a power source that drives me crazy(noise), I would enjoy something less loud.
if all it is is having a noisy PSU, and nothing major ( since you don't want top-end stuff ), I would suggest a small upgrade to your current system instead of building a whole new rig. if you can, please post your current system and the highest system requirement game you wish to play.
now a 750w PSU which leaves you plenty of room for any future addons $120
total of $525 already
for the remaining 75, you can upgrade alot
purchase a 4GB RAM ($43) or a 8GB ($63)
get a better GPU( $180 (+15) ) with the 4GB RAM
or go 2 step higher on the GPU for the Radeon HD 6950 ($250) [Warning: this would go $10 over budget]
or get a better CPU or perhaps the MOBO, or a CPU fan if you want to try overclocking
my brain is jello right now so I'm going to stop typing. Good Luck!
all the components are the same except for the motherboard, the motherboard you listed is better than the one I provided at a higher cost, but if its within your budget, get it! also, if you have any extra money left, I'd suggest getting some new RAMs with frequency at 1333. ( don't need to push it if your budget is low, 2GB should do fine one decent settings) Good luck!
The motherboard I linked earlier is 1000 romanian lei, that roughly means 320 USD.
I don't think its the one because you said "a cheap 120$" and the sandy bridge checks out at roughly 130 USD.
The video card doesn't check out, its roughly 260USD
The PSU is roughly 169 USD.
So yeah, I got the right Processor, but the other ones are apparently wrong.
Could you use google translate to find the right one on the site? It would help me alot.
this one should be ok, any P67 or Z68 motherboard you find should do the job. but remember, try to only purchase from brand you know and look at the reviews if there is any. I chose ASRock because its a pretty good MoBo company and make cheap mobo's too. besure to double check on the specs for compatibility ( I can't do that because I don't really trust google translate and 80% of it is still in Romana.
also, the reason for the difference between the price is because the price they set in US and Romana is different, and different website also gives different discounts and such.
Now I have two options, go with it as Gigabyte is pretty well rated, even the review states so, or find something to scale down.
That would include the PSU aswell.
Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 750W, ATX12V v2.31
As I stated, the PSU is very expensive for a PSU.My current PSU is 20$, granted it makes more noise then a jet, but hell for 20$ I could change it once a month.So yeah, if we scale down the PSU to 50% of its price, the gigabyte motherboard will fit in nicely.Right now is around 180$, its more expensive then the processor..so yeah.
I know I'm kinda asking too much from you, but the last time I chose a PSU it made sound like a jet, I agree the PSU is very important, the last one I had went down at fried my motherboard, I don't really know how the video card survived, but whatever.
Price, look for under 300 lei.(that means roughly 100$)
Also check the link you gave me, it doesn't work like that.Google translate doesn't update the link once you click on something, you have to manually copy the model and paste it here, if its taken from the site, I should find it with 0% chance of miss-find.
If the google translate info dazzles you too much and you want to search an english site like that newegg then try finding something around 50$.
600w might just do the job for the right price, and Corsair is a brand I trust, but be sure to check out some other PSUs because some local company in your area might make some better PSU than Corsair! but remember, put your money to companies that you trust. good luck!
I plan on adding a second video card later on, hence my request for CrossFireX compatibility and I want to be sure 100% it will work, I don't wanna get all the pieces and then nothing, not enough power.
That would be indeed frustrating.
well, the 600w is the most you can probably get out of that company, if you see a 700w+ PSU for your budget, feel free to get it, because I'm sure anything above 750 will power anything you'd ever want
