Hey,
I'm looking to build a gaming pc.

Approximate Purchase Date: before christmas (anytime from now till christmas)

Budget Range: 600$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming,...

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, os

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca ncix.ca directcanada.com tigerdirect.ca amazon.ca

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: Anything good

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Are tigerdirect's barebone kits any good? http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

If not, here is my current build idea:


Motherboard:
Asus P8H67
100
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10530BD8981&v...

Cpu:
Intel i3 2100
122
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12200BD7933&v...

Graphics card:
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 550 Ti
90
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Ram:
Gskill ripjaws 4gb 1600
http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=42745&vpn=F3-12800CL9D-4GB...
30

Ps:
OCZ stealthXstream 2 600w
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=13220AC7434&v...
50

Case:
Zalman Z9
50
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=15210AC1880&v...

Hdd:
idk

Drive:
20
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0033Z2BAQ?tag=banforbucga08-2...

Total (without hard drive): 462

Would a i5 2500k be better for the price?
Could this build run Starcraft 2 on ultra?
How would a AMD Phenom II X4 965 be the best bang for buck? (http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4...)

OK first go AMD with that price you can get a new FX quad runnig at 3.60 and a $25 cpu fan and overclock that sucker to over 4.00 GHz without messing with the voltage. Here is what i recommend hope its not to late...

Mobo:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

CPU:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

RAM:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

HD: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

CD-Drive:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Graphics card:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

PSU:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

CPU fan:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Total would be $590 and this thing could blow through star craft 2 on ultra like nothing. Also if you want to spend a little more get 8gs of ram its worth it.
