More about build build winner
  1. any opinion? I would like to buy the computer today let me know what you think is the best
  2. neither are very good. i wouldnt buy either one for gaming. the gpu of the first build is crap and the gpu in the second is an integrated card and it is crap to for gaming
  3. Unfortunately, I must agree with cbrunnem neither build would perform very well in it's intended purpose. Perhaps you could give us the your budget and we could suggest a build for you?
  4. Ok thanks for the answer! My budget is around 600$! I dont have much knowledges in homebuilding!

    Thanks again!

    After rebates the final cost comes out less than six hundred and forty USD.

    The SSD is a moderately high capacity unit which should hold the OS and several other programs and should suite you until the price of desktop HDDs come back down to earth.

    With the revisions made you will also receive a twenty USD gift-card from newegg with the purchase of the CPU.

    Hope I was able to help!
  6. Ok and with the package i will get a more performing computer than the setup i showed you? And also what's the rebate? Is it a special discount i get on the website?
  7. And for the assembly is it very difficult?

    Indeed, the suggested build would likely serve you much better for gaming.

    The rebates are mail-in rebates, they provide you with a form to mail to a certain address. After the rebate has been completed you will be reimbursed the amount promised on the rebate card.
  9. ok well thanks i think i'll with the built you suggest. And about the graphic card is it a good think to take a better graphic card or there will not beajpr difference?
  10. I was able to get the cost of the build down to six hundred and forty USD after rebates. With the money saved you should be able to choose a better GPU should you so desire.

    The suggested build has been edited to reflect these changes.
  11. Ok thanks again will do some research on hardware before to set my final build. I will keep update about price

    you can not add. that adds up to 755.

    original poster i would strongly recommend dropping the SSD and the hsf. neither one adds to the gaming performance.

    replace the case and motherboard with these as they will not affect performance either.

    and replace the gpu with this one

    difference between the two gpus

    as you can see the 6870 is much better and within budget.
  13. I realized that I miscalculated and made the proper revisions in the original post several moments ago, mate.
  14. the 5770 is not a good gaming graphics card. you can build an intel build with the parts i suggested and the rest being what doomsword suggested and have a better system then anything thats been mentioned so far hands down no contest.
  15. Ok i'll go woth cbrunnem suggestion and Doomsword89 list! Looks to be a very good combo!
  16. Indeed it does, good luck and happy computing!
  17. Dammit I thought you already had 2 systems and were giving away one of them. Anyways, take a look at the Toms Hardware $600 marathon system build.
  18. For $600 build go to the Toms home page and read the article about the $600 system builder marathon machine
  19. alright thanks I'm going to take a look at the page you mentionned but anyways these two guys here gave me a very good set up that I will probably take!

    Thanks again guys very appreciate!
  20. if that build has an amd cpu modify it or save more money
  21. What would you suggest instead of the amd cpu? the Intel Core i5-2400?
  22. atleast that cpu
