New computer - Needs feedback! Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: September 16, 2011 4:24 AM in Systems Share Nyanja September 12, 2011 2:19:50 PM I'm building myself a new toy for upcoming games (eg BF3) and I need you guys' advices. I'm not sure about some parts (Vid Card and Mobo) and I'd appreciate some feedbacks from you guys. These are the parts that I'm intending to purchase: Mobo: GA-Z68XP-UD3P (some say get a UD4 - is it really worth it/what's the big difference) CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz Graphics Card: Radeon HD 6950 but I don't know which manufacturer to buy from. Probably SAPPHIRE (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102929) RAM: Need help. Thinking about getting 8GB of http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III Case: Antec DF-85 Black ATX PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W Thanks a lot for any feedback!

I built a PC last March and a lot of the prices have already dropped a lot. I bought this RAM for 100 bucks back then, it is great: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You don't need more than about 700 watts unless you have two vid cards. Get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would stay FAR FAR away from ATI. They offer decent power for price, but they can't do PhysX, which lots of games use, so IMHO ATI is useless. Get this instead and get two free games: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... buwish September 16, 2011 4:24:06 AM This topic has been moved from the section Opinions and Experiences to section Systems by Buwish Can't find your answer ?
