Solved First Time PC build Tags: Build Systems Product Last response: November 14, 2011 1:50 AM in Systems Share andrewj1991 November 3, 2011 11:48:08 PM I am looking to build my first pc and just have a few question as to what you guys would suggest as to the components for it. Approximate Purchase Date: I am hoping to have all the parts and build it around Christmas. I am hoping to save money overall by buying on black Friday. Budget: ~$600 System Usage: 1. Gaming 2. School work Parts Not Required: HDD, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, DVD drive, OS Preferred Websites: newegg.com, amazon.com , tigerdirect.com Country of Origin: US Parts Preferences: I have not real preferences. Overclocking: yes on the cpu and maybe on the graphics card SLI or Crossfire: yes I will being doing this but at a later date. So I would prefer if the mobo was able to so I don’t need to buy another in the next couple of months. Additional Comments Parts I already have: 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Black HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Monitor I do not know the resolution (I am being given it as a gift) I know it is a widescreen LCD but that is it. Parts I have already pick out so please don’t include these in the budget: Coolermaster HAF 922 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Intel Core i5 2500K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would like 8 gigs of ram if possible. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Get a GTX 570 and an Asus board. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... Use the Asus QVC for memory selection. ...just one man's opinion.

And I have about $600 to spend. cutebeans November 4, 2011 12:33:51 AM andrewj1991 said:Sorry I was not very clear in my first post.

The 750w can handle dual 560tis easily. Good luck! The Evo is the best air cooler right now. andrewj1991 November 4, 2011 12:43:27 AM Thanks ...That is about what I had come up with as the best I could get. I have been looking around for about 6 months now and with all the sales that are going on or coming up I figured this would be the best time to finally go for it. Does anyone know how the OCZ ZT Series 750W psu is? I like the idea of having a modular psu. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... cutebeans November 4, 2011 12:52:53 AM I really don't know if that's a good 750w though. If you really want modular then get this Corsair TX750w. $130 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... clutchc November 4, 2011 12:57:41 AM This is one of the best sites for PSU evaluations: http://www.jonnyguru.com/ andrewj1991 November 4, 2011 1:21:34 AM Thanks again for the help andrewj1991 November 14, 2011 1:50:06 AM Best answer selected by andrewj1991.
