  1. Do you want to start with AMD or Intel?

    Do you want AMD or Nvidia Graphics?

    Do you want to overclock?

    Do you want a preformance system or quiet system?
  2. I guess intel, about the graphics i don't know..i had a dell laptop with 1g dedicated nvidia ...i played a lot of gamesand my processor burn down....i don't know what overclock is, sorry...and performance i want.tnx

    Fill this out & a mod should move this to the right section :)
  4. You are going to have a lot of fun building a gaming rig for $1500!

    You have to now go and figure out which parts you want. For that kind of money you can build a super fast gaming rig.

    Figure out if you want Intel, you should probably look at the Toms Hardware CPU guides. Once you choose one, find a motherboard that fits that CPU and get ram that works with both of those. You can use the guide at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/System-Builder-Marathon-August-2012-GTX-670-Kepler,3280.html
    That's the Value build on Tom's Hardware. You can modify to fit your budget.

    Happy gaming.
  5. Thankx a lot..
  6. So newegg.com is the cheapest site?but if i buy this month a video card lets say better than the one techjamaica wrote and next month other 2pieces better and i.m gonna build the desktop in 4-5months, you think is not a good ideea?

    CPU-Intel i5 3570k


    Cooler-Corsair h100
