Need some last thoughts before I Submit- ~$700 build

Hi, I want to make sure there is not bottlenecking or compatibility issues. I am taking advantage of the deals out now. I will buy a hdd and processor on friday.

I am still not sure wether to go for i5 or x4. The i5 will be more easily upgradable for a few years - At least I am hoping it would.

GAMING- is the main use of this computer.


PSU and Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.760967

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147061

GPU: (edit) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131378

MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130294 - the Rebate is just so appealing.

This comes out to be $430 after rebate


Plus i5 (224) and hdd (70ish?) it's a little over $700 build

Thank you

  1. That is a 1366 board, it isn't compatable with any i5's. If you use the sticky "my build" format that would also be helpful

  3. OH...smh. THANK YOU !

    Cutebeans! What about a board with 2 PCI 16 slots? for Crossfire? Is it a huge price difference?
  4. EDIT: Lol, I got confused with another build I was making. The board I linked here only has 1 PCI 16 slot. With your power supply. Dual 560ti cannot be done since it will blow up :O Dual 16 boards would cost you about at least $160

    Don't worry about it. A single GPU set up is always preferred by games. :)
  5. LOL I read it, still it was useful info!

  8. Cutebeans!

    Given that I missed the deals last night, smh I actually ordered the wrong MB, would you still recommend that MB and hdd?
  9. The MB i put is still there. Get it while you still can :O.

    Get this seagate barracuda 500gb $60
