New Gaming PC - 600 EURO Budget

Approximate Purchase Date: 27th of October.

Budget Range: Roughly 600 EU / 820 USD / 5500 SEK.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Browsing the Internet, Movies, etc. Nothing too serious other than Gaming I guess.

Parts Not Required: Monitor, Keyboard, OS.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.komplett.se

Country of Origin: Sweden

Parts Preferences: Don't much care about the lable, just the best in the price range, atleast 4 cores in the processor.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1440 x 900

Additional Comments: I'm not too fussed on going AMD, I would just like something that could run games such as WoW (on Ultra Settings) and CSS, L4D2.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Hej på dig :D

    I'm afraid the 2500K is a bit too expensive for a 600€ budget. Också, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-advice

    Hej ;)

    Okay ;( Oh well I'll follow the guides in that thread and post a new question and try and delete this one (if I can?)

    EDIT: Actually I'll just edit it.
  3. Hey,

    Kingston DDR3 HyperX blu 1600MHz 8GB
    Kit w/two HyperX 4GB DDR3, CL9-9-9-27
    529.00
    496258

    Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB
    7200RPM, SATA 3.0 Gbps, 3,5", 32MB Cache, 8.9ms
    487.00
    619277

    Intel® Core™ i5-2300 Processor
    Socket LGA1155, 2,8GHz, 6MB, Boxed
    1469.00
    635399

    Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3, Socket-1155
    ATX, P67, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16, CFX, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0
    869.00
    644666

    HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5
    PCI-Express 2.1, 2xDVI, native-HDMI, DisplayPort
    1399.00

    Total:
    4.753,00

    That's missing Case, PSU. That budget is kinda iffy for a i5 build, this is the best I could find. Even the 6850 is going to be overkill at 720p-ish resolutions, so that's easy. You may not need the Gigabyte board, feel free to get a cheapo H61 mobo. I picked that one for upgradeability.

    i'd try to get at least a 6870 in, if you can
  5. Make note of the resolution he's running.

    yeah, but he most likely would want to upgrade from that res, but he would otherwise be fine with the 6850
  7. Finneous you're amazing man, the budget was my guideline, but you just made it easy for me.

    @morgoth780: I can afford to get that card, and I think I will as I won't be staying with this res forever and I wouldn't want to have to spend unnecessarily in the future.

    I've chosen this case: http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=602546

    Is it decent?

    Still got to look at PSUs.
  8. Seems like a nice case. It's too bad there's only one fan pre-installed, buying more will cost you some.
  9. Alright - found a PSU.

    Just wondering if 500W is enough?

    Also got two extra 120mm fans.

  10. It only has two 17A rails, that's kind of on the low side. That site has none of my favourite PSUs really.
  11. This website might have better PSUs, www.webhallen.com

    Also a Swedish website, could you recommend me something?
  12. Here's one that doesn't seem too bad. Would allow a GFX upgrade too, to CF in the future: http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=645493#extra two 30A rails.
  13. Sweet! Now the only thing thats stopping me is lack of cash! Pay-day on the 27th ;)
