    cpu--i3-2100 ---99$
    and i have a xfx radeon 4850 1gb

    looks like a good build?
  6. that should work out ok.
  7. Best answer
    The more expensive is much better. Spend the $15 if you've got it.
  8. If you get 450 a year why not order 450 tonight and another 450 on sunday?
  9. cause they decide when i get the 450......sux hm.?

    That might qualify as "taking the p*ss"
  11. Also I would get this PSU
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016

    Do you plan on getting the $850 PC I listed or just this $450 PC?
    Edit- Don't respond to the last part I noticed that the names are different dhez was that computer and you res urbz sorry.
  12. Check out my $400 build here:
    http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
    It's only $350 (actually) in which case that leaves you with $100 to purchase a 6770
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131434
  13. The cooler master should be fine i don't see the need for the more expensive PSU I think it even be good with a less expensive one like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171060 with 80 plus bronze . Just an Athlon II X4 for the same price as I3 but quad core. But I like the I3 a tad bit better in this case.
  14. The GX series and Extreme series uses cheap capicitors resulting in shorter life. He's better off with the CX430.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=cx430
    Only $25 after the Promo gift card and has a $10 MIR
  15. I'd still go PC&C for the PSU. It is better.
    But aznshinobi has a very good argument there.

    Haven't heard good stuff about OCZ PSUs.
  17. Erm, I was talking about the $400 build but now have to add that he's also right about the CX430

    Ya i say for this build it probably be the best choice. You really don't need to spend $60+ on a psu for this type of computer.
  19. OCZ's are pretty good now, although there are some reviews that suck about OCZ most of those are cries over rebates. But aside from that OCZ has always put out pretty decent PSU's.
  20. the psu what aznshinobi sad the cx psu...its 450w as i stated i have a 4850 1gb ddr3
    that requires a 450w min psu....it would be safe? at least the pc power and cooling its 500w and its modular...the antec its 500w too but its not modular...what should i do? would the cx cover my 4850?
  21. shinobi, if you designed those builds, maybe you should fix the prices, non include Os, people generally dont like to game on ubuntu or linux. and windows 7 could add another 100$ on to any of those builds, and xp could add 60 or more dollars, of course for anything more than the 400$ build you wouldnt really want xp because it only has DX9 and is usually 32 bit.
  22. ^ don't worry I told him that his builds are crap :)
  23. GPU manufacturers always overstate power requirements - 430/450w will be fine if you stick to single card.
  24. hahaha guys u dont have to be mean:)...they are not crap...just prices outdated , .......
    ok - ok and maybe he gets payed to recommend all that *&%@# ram's:)

    wd -hdd 500g at 44$?.......i wish
  25. longpig...thx
    than ill go with the cx450w corsair and the rest of the build i ques
  26. Mild, those builds are made for people on the forum who ask for the build and just that. Most of the time the people/OP's have OS already so I didn't incorporate it. It's also how THG operates, when THG says it's a $1000 Budget build they usually don't incorporate the OS either.

    As for MadChemist, GTFO and make your builds then recommend them. Don't come on the forums and start trolling others builds when you have nothing to show for. I'm actually quite tired of your ***.

    Urbz those prices are updated.

    If you read the description further it says on NCIX US specifically.

    Just btw, the CX430 is fine for the 4850.
  27. I would. I'm just not sure how do I make this web space for builds. Maybe u can guide me ?
  28. i got an idea. Buy half the parts this year the other half in 2 days and have a 900 dollar budget :D
  29. lol already said read the form
  30. IN that case buy really really upgradeable pieces. Like buy the mobo with just a built in graphics card and get hte actual card later. So when u do get that 450 u can upgrade the shiz out of it
  31. Did you read the form at all? or just jump in
  32. ok guys so i finally got on idea of what i need thx to all of u...i did posted if u look higher up the build what im gonna do but im gonna do some small changes to it...

    i dont need the gigabyte mobo with hdmi.....i have a 4850 card....so ill save some money on the mobo
    the antec psu will be replaced by the cx corsair 450w...save some money there too

    and with the saved money and the money from the 4 g ram ill buy 8 g ram...

    today after noon im ordering my stuff .
  33. good luck!
  34. It's not the CX450, it's the CX430.
  35. and urbz, ur right prices are outdated, but i remember when my sisters HDD broke (didnt have the cash to get a new OS to put on a new HDD so i didnt bother at all, she been using my old desktop) and 500gb HDDs that were fairly nice cost like 60, not bad, especially for nowadays after that stupid flood.
  36. Best answer selected by urbz.
  37. yes i did order my stuff....so im really pleased with the new build and im excited...
    U GUYS ALL OF U u did amazing.....i needed to build 2 build in 4 days....1 with 300$ other with 450$ and u guys did the hard work for me helping me out with the right build...

    i wanna thank you each for ur time and effort, thx to tomshardware ,


    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY.
