hey guys i'm building a new gaming computer but i would like some advice as i am fairly new to all of this stuff.
i have $1100 left to spend on parts, ive already bought a case, ssd, and monitor. i want to be able to play just about every game on full settings without any lag. i don't need a dvd drive or any extra coolers or anything. i'm getting the i7 2600k cpu.
so if you could help me out on finding the best motherboard, gpu, psu and ram i can get with 900 dollars it would help out so much. thank you.
these are the things i was looking at, could you tell me if i should or shouldn't get them or what i should get instead.
You're skimping on the graphics card. To max out everything, you'll actually need more than 900 dollars, but get the best card you can afford. You could back off the PSU a tad. The graphics card is where the most game power resides.
So thats Ram-$109.99 , Video card-$479.99 , MB $154.99 and PSU $129.99 =$874 and under budget. That is of course if I am reading your posting correctly , that you have $900 to spend on these 4 components. I'm not sure where your cpu fits in with your budget. You actually don't need the 2600k to do what you want with maxing out the games , the 2500k is more than enough for that and $100 cheaper.
thank you very much, i really appreciate the help. will i notice a very big difference between the 2500k and the 2600k? i'd really like to build a system that will be good enough to handle a lot of gaming for a few years, do you think this build will be good enough for that? or should i try and save up another couple hundred and get some better components?
