gang,

i've been anxiously awaiting Diablo 3 (as i'm sure many of you have as well). i want to get a new pc to run the game. i do realize the recommended system requirements are not very high by any means, but i'd still like to spend somewhere around $800 to no more than $1,000. if $800 is all it will take, then great.

i'll use the guidelines for recommendations from the sticky.

Approximate Purchase Date: next few weeks

Budget Range: $700-$1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Diablo 3, surfing the net, did i mention Diablo 3?

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: whatever (newegg?)

Country: US

Parts Preferences: Intel chip, Antec PS, don't have a preference on mobo or video card manufacturer any longer (been a LOOOONG time since i built a machine)

Core: Intel, either a good i5 or if it's doable, an i7 but i can't imagine i'd need an i7 if all i'm playing is Diablo 3

Overclocking: no

Motherboard: no idea

Memory/RAM: 8GB (no less, but don't need more either)

Hard Drive: 500GB+ (not too concerned about size, but want a good, fast drive; maybe an SSD main drive for OS and Diablo 3 etc. plus a 500GB secondary drive? i don't know, just don't need a monster drive by any means but the idea of two drives seems to make sense to me - whether one SSD and one regular or just maybe two 500GB drives)

Video Card (SLI or Crossfire): no, i would like to stick to a single video card solution only. don't want to mess with multiple cards. one thing here though is that i might be interested (someday) in having dual-monitor support from the single card. i don't know if all decent single-card solutions these days offer dual-monitor support by default. but i might decide to someday do dual 24's. or a 24 and a 20 or something. this is not imperative.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200 (have a 24" monitor)

Additional Comments: don't want some crazy looking case, just a nice, basic black will do. and preferably quiet.


as mentioned above, i haven't built a machine for many years so i'm not current on chipsets/mobo's and video cards these days. i will need a license of Win7 as well (only have XP lying around here).

i've tried reading as many of the requests for pc build help ideas within the past couple of months and none seem to fit exactly my ideas so i hope everyone doesn't think i'm spamming by posting this request.

also... if a very cool option comes up and the pricing has to go over the $1,000 limit by $100 (for the OS for example) then so be it. i don't want the OS license to kill the deal on a nice machine.

thanks to everyone in advance for their support/advice.

What I generally do here is I like to have my OS separate from my data - which eliminates the need to spend countless hours backing up data in case you need to do a complete HD reformat. This is where having an SSD comes in handy. Without moving parts, an SSD can flash a complete install of Windows in less than 10 minutes.

Most cards will offer dual monitor support easily. Where one has an advantage over the other is that if you use a Radeon with a 3-monitor Eyefinity setup.

Elaborate please.

Just because the parts are cheaper doesn't make them a good seller. In fact if you look closer Amazon doesn't really sell PC parts as they outsource that to other sellers. I tried to buy a fan from them and I had to go to some other site to get it.

THERE UPDATED WITH ANTEC PSU, AND RAIDMAX IS FINE, ive been using them for 5 years.
February 6, 2012 4:53:26 PM

Gives you a nice 8gb ram, 700w psu available for upgrades, Mobo is very nice, and a nice cpu from intel 3.1 ghz. Also gives youa pretty nice 1 tb hard drive to work with. HOPE YOU LIKE IT.

THE OS is included.

Feel free to swap out that windows 7 for a home premium 64 bit


TOTAL COST IS 999.23

Some more points that amazon is cheaper, The previous replie, stated a 3.3ghz sandy bridge i5 3.3ghz for 229. They are 219 on amazon, and the ram was 20 dollars cheaper on amazon, along with the graphics card 40$ cheaper. Newegg used to be a good company, they have since gotten greedy, and instead of lowering prices on holidays they raise them dramatically, Plus their return policy is the shadiest crap i've seen in a long time.

I would stay away from RAIDMAX cases - awful brand. We use these where I work and they're very cheaply made and fall apart easily. And the PSU still isn't an Antec which the OP wants.

wow, i wasn't expecting multiple responses within minutes of posting.

thanks so much to everyone's feedback, i truly appreciate it.

now i have to dive into the reco's and see what makes the most sense to me.

i'm sure i'll have follow-up questions, if so, i now know where to go.

thanks again.

so, i like what i see from the recommendations, but i was curious how this would all stack up against some pre-built systems from Alienware, iBUYPOWER, etc.

Alienware doesn't have anything competitive in the price range (the X51 for $1,000 is not as good as the suggestions above), but iBUYPOWER has a Paladin D828 for around $1K that seems to be better in some respects but not as good in others.

Gamer Paladin D828 - $945
1 x Case ( NZXT Tempest 410 Gaming Case - Black )
1 x Processor ( Intel® Core™ i5-2500K Processor (4x 3.30GHz/6MB L3 Cache) )
1 x Processor Cooling ( Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink ) (Liquid cooling was a free option)
1 x Memory ( 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module - Corsair or Major Brand - FREE Upgrade to Corsair XMS3 )
1 x Video Card ( NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB - Single Card )
1 x Motherboard ( Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 )
1 x Power Supply ( 700 Watt - Standard )
1 x Primary Hard Drive ( 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive )
1 x Optical Drive ( 24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive - Black )
1 x Flash Media Reader / Writer ( 12-In-1 Internal Flash Media Card Reader/Writer - Black )
1 x Sound Card ( 3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard )
1 x Network Card ( Onboard LAN Network (Gb or 10/100) )
1 x Operating System ( Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium + Office Starter 2010 (Includes basic versions of Word and Excel) - 64-Bit )


i was anticipating that dollar for dollar, i'd be able to build a machine by hand for less than from a pre-built source (or at least if the same price, better performance for the dollars).

does anyone have opinions/thoughts/comments about iBUYPOWER as a company? i know CyberPower PC has had a lot of negative reviews from what i can see but i don't see a ton of negative for iBUYPOWER.

if i'm missing something major, let me know as i'd like to build my own machine but not if i can get just as good pre-made with a warranty.

thanks again everyone...

500 GB 7200 RPM http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00461G3MS/ref=ox_sc_a... ( SSD's from what i read are dropping in price so id say wait imo )

Master Elite 430 Case http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003O8J11E/ref=ox_sc_a...

Dvd Drive http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033Z2BAQ/ref=ox_sc_a...

Windows 7 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004Q0PT3I/ref=ox_sc_a...

700 Watt ( If you even slightly think you may want to have a multiple monitor setup, overclocking ) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001IZ7MHU/ref=ox_sc_a...

Motherboard http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005UDITT6/ref=ox_sc_a... ( Has PCIE 3.0, will support some future processors like the ivy bridge if wanted to upgrade, Usb 3.0, etc.. )

i5 2500k http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004EBUXHQ/ref=ox_sc_a...

Best type of 6950 Card imo http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004WZ0HQ6/ref=ox_sc_a...

Total: 1055.00 ( OS included )

Other:
- If dont want overclocking or Multiple Monitor Setup for sure heres a 600 watt supply which would be fine.
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Certified-Compatible-Plat...`

Again if you dont want overclocking heres i5 2500 http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-2500-Socket-LGA1155-Proc...

If you dont care about 1 ghz loss then here is i5 2400 20 dollars cheaper http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-2400-Socket-LGA1155-Proc...

With this you can knock 30-50 bucks.

You could also go with a 6950 1gb instead of 2gb which will knock off about 20 bucks.

All parts are on amazon, newegg might have a few parts cheaper, but not by much.
May 29, 2012 6:39:12 PM

hey gang... i still haven't bought parts or a new pc. any chance you guys can give me a current reco considering the following:

(original requested items updated)

Price Range: $900 - $1100

Case: decided whatever case you guys recommend, i don't want it to have a see-through side panel. simple black is what i like. mid-tower is as large as i physically want to go. i'm even cool with a small form factor.

CPU/Processor: i5 (Ivy Bridge) processor (no overclocking needed)

CPU Cooler/Heatsink: do i even need anything outside of what comes packaged with the CPU from Intel? considering no overclocking, etc.

PSU: don't need anything crazy... with an i5 and a 7850 i can't imagine i will need a monster PSU

Motherboard: don't know? Z77? i want USB 3.0 of course

Video Card: 7850 video card - which one is best? (decided i want this for my build)

RAM: 8GB is sufficient

Hard Drive(s): 1 x 500GB (want a solid performing drive, willing to pay more for good reliability) or 2 x 500GB or 1 x SSD and 1 x 500GB?

DVD-Burner: ?

OS: Win7 64-bit ($99)

Don't need keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers.


thanks gang...
May 29, 2012 6:46:27 PM

The 500R fits the bill perfectly. It has no side window, has a lot of cooling, and great cable management. For the Processor, get the i5-3450. For the PSU, get the 520W Antec NEO for $50. For MOBO, get the ASRock Z77 Pro3 Gen3 on newegg for $105. For SSD, get 128GB Crucial M4 and a 500GB WD Caviar Blue. For DVD Burner, simply a Lite-on 24x DVD Burner.
