DIY system from Newegg

Hi everybody,

Building a computer for around 500$ and was wondering what you think of the setup I am getting.

Seagate Barracuda Green ST1500DL003 1.5TB 5900
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket
HIS H467QR1GH Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3
MSI 880GM-E43 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD
BYTECC 18" Serial ATA-150/300 Cable
LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model
Rosewill R519-BK Black Computer Case 500W Power

For 500 bucks could I have done any better? I went with the Radeon HD 4670 because of the price and the positive feedback on Newegg.

Cheers.

    Yes, I believe so. Girlfriend is getting my lenovo laptop and I am getting this.

    I am planning on updating the graphics card someday if it isnt enough.

    I see, would it possible to stretch the budget to 600USD perhaps?

    At 600USD you could likely have a nice i5 2500(k) set-up and I would be happy to make some suggestions if thats the case.

    Becuase the build you suggested likely would not be fit for a game like D3 unfortunately.
  5. Vid card made it to medium according to the D3 beta:

    http://www.brainlazy.com/article/video-games/diablo-3-graphics-card-video-card-enough/

    Oh and I plan to overclock to 3.5ghz

    work or no?
  6. Hexa-cores are not very well supported by most games,unless you plan to do some very heavy multi-tasking the 1055T would likely prove to be a bit of a waste.

    I suggest the following CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727

    Also, unfortunately that micro-atx likely would not support such healthy OC.

    So, I suggest the following motherboard if you still insist upon OC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131646

    Its a bit more expensive than the micro-atx, but its a far more competant choice.

    As for the GPU, I suggest shopping around a bit. Perhaps try and find a good deal on a 5770, you will be glad you did when you finally sit down to play D3.
  7. I'd rather get 1 stick 4gb then add another 4gb later than do a 2 x 2gb dual channel. Pretty much waste of slots. Yeah get the CPU DW89 recommended.

    Stay away from Rosewill PSU. They suck lol.

    I'd get the 6770

  8. 1.5tb worth of space? Get a 500GB since you really are on a budget or 1tb but you won't need to much space so 500gb would be good at this time.

    Yeah, but I think he want's $500 before rebates. It won't fit :( the 430 watts would be enough for the build.
