I'm making my first computer, and it's already blowing my mind on how much it'll cost. (632$?!!?) So I was just going to check if it was compatible before I spend my life away. (im 15... 630$ is alot )
I am fine with using used stuff, As long as it's in good condition. If I am going overkill, or spending in the wrong areas, please tell me.
so here is my spec:
POWER:Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus Series 500W ATX12V V2.3
Case:Cooler Master SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Storm Scout ATX/MATX/ITX Mid Tower Case
MOBO:Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 Socket AM3 AMD 890GX/SB850 6 SATA USB 3.0 ATX
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor, Black Edition (HDT90ZFBGRBOX)
Cooling:Not sure if i need it, case has 3 fans. ?
Ram:Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3
HD:WD Caviar Blue 500 GB Internal hard drive - 600 MBps - 7200 rpm.. should I get bigger?
GPU:Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1 GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card 100283-3L Should I get a better one?
I honestly have no idea if I should upgrade in some places, or not. am I paying too much for anything? I really want to be able to run 30fps on new/ish games. that's about all. I want a good, stable gaming rig that should last 5+ years, or at least till I'm out of high school. (grade 9 now) (i don't plan on overclocking it, but If I do, I will get some kind of liquid cooling. Just sayin)
Well, Thanks in advance! please tell me soon! Black Friday is in 2 days!
its $605 but with no hard drive . you should get the hard drive on eBay or from a friend , they are really expensive. there are also 2 x $15 rebates. you wont be able to crossfire though . instead of getting a 4100
you can get a 960t which is slower but if you are lucky you can unlock the two extra cores.
Bring the CPU to a 955 save some money there
And the case to something cheaper like a NZXT gamma or a rosewill case
spend some of the money on a better PSU
and some on a 6870
HDD is fine for now since they are so expensive
