500-780 usd build

Hello. Im looking for a build that will not exceed the 780 $ range. I know that I atleast want a 6770 in my MONSTOSITY MACHINE. But I'll get rid of it if the build exceeds 680 $

Order to greatest to least: gaming, gaming and yet more gaming ?

sli or crossfire: ROFL no

moniter resolution: meh 1440X900 or less I dont really see the differance between differant resolution's.

Overclocking: YES but only if it's a i5 2500k and it fits my budget.

Parts preferance: newegg or amazon, I dont trust any other's.

Additonal note's I want to fit a cooler master 922 case in there but there like 120 bucks rofl...or ill go with the xion classic case It's beast looking and fits 10.5 inch gpu's :D

Thank you !

    Hard to fit a monitor on that budget, but I own the one I linked and it's fine. Also I'm not sure the case will fit the GPU but I just used the Xion you mentioned - there's plenty of cases in the world around $60.
  2. ^ Why give him an H61 if you give him a 2500K, might as well get the 2400 and save to get a better GPU.

    So I'm assuming you need a monitor?

    i5 2500K $220
    Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 $100
    4GB DDR3 1333 Crucial Ballistix
    Antec BP550 $65
    HAF 922 $91
    Sapphire 6870 $175 before $20 MIR
    Hannspree 21.5" $120
    Total: $796 before rebates.
    If you think this is too much. Here is a cheaper monitor. But I don't suggest going with rebranded monitors.
    E-Machines 21.5" $100
    There is only one 1 egg review and that's pretty much why it has 3 Eggs. For such a low price, it's a solid deal since it is 21.5" and is 1920x1080.
  3. AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition: $119.99

    ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970: $99.99

    aznshinobi is right, H61 and 2500K don't make sense together. Also MicroATX is unnecessary in a case that will fit ATX. I had a bunch of tabs open and linked the wrong one. The Gigabyte mobo that aznshinobi recommended is a far better choice and it puts my build around $800 before rebates.

    The aznshinobi build doesn't include a hard drive, though.
  5. ^ Crap I forgot about the HDD, face palm.

    Well.. To substitute for the cutting the cost, get the Antec 300 Illusion ($60) and get the E-Machine monitor.

    Antec 300 Illusion $60 (plus $10 MIR)
    That should save about $51 allowing for this combo.
  6. Ok ok WO soz lol i dont need a moniter mouse keyboard XD

    O: the 6850 will be fine lol. All I need is the cpu which looks like the core i5 2500k is beast so ill stick with that.
