I would like to put together a decent gaming computer that will run games on high settings. Being a budget build I was thinking of going the AMD O.C. route rather than just a stable Intel build. First build, so trying to keep the OCing as easy as can be. 2 days ago I knew nothing about building my own PC, but after reading reviews, benchmarks, comparing hundreds of items I now have some knowledge as to what I am looking for. Approximate Purchase Date: A.S.A.P. Budget Range: $700 - $1100 US System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Videos Parts Not Required: OS, Mouse, Keyboard Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, Tiger Direct, Amazon Country: Don't care Parts Preferences: AMD MSI Motherboard w/OC Genie II (preferably) - Whatever reliable company you prefer Overclocking: Yes SLI or Crossfire: No / Maybe in future 1-2 years Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 Additional Comments: Would like to get the best out of the Black Friday deals. Feel free to give opinions on the CPU and case also. Sorry for the lack of information CASE: NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146025 Looks great and I like the side panel window.
MOBO: Just need a good MOBO that will be good for OCing and that will last - Don't want to spend money on things I don't need - I will only be needing 1 PCI 2.0 - Needs to be MSI for OC Genie II easy O.C.
PSU: Need a PSU that can handle OCing.
RAM: 8 GB Not sure how much better it is to O.C. Memory or even what it does period.
HDD: Don't need anything huge or expensive. But then again I don't want it to crap out on me.
DVD Drive: Doesn't matter much which one I get as long as it works.
GPU: $100-$250 I want a good Radeon but not the most expensive one.
Monitor: I want a 20-24 inch LED HD monitor that looks good
CPU Cooler: Gonna need one because the stock one blows too much. (pun intended)
This site is the best! Thanks in advance for your time, kindness, and patience. Hope to see you in Diablo 3.
