So im looking to build a new computer. I have some parts picked out on newegg, but would like some input from people who actually know what they are doing as this is going to be my first build so I dont have firsthand knowledge.
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next month
Budget Range: $700-900
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming (skyrim, SC2, and D3 when it comes out), school, web surfing
Parts Not Required: monitor, os, mouse, keyboard
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg
Parts Preferences: AMD (will consider intel if there is a much better deal)
SLI or Crossfire: no
Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Additional Comments: If at all possible within my price range, I would like to be able to max out the games listed above.
- Below are some parts that I have picked out to start on newegg, take a look and let me know what you all think (if there is anything that should be switched out just let me know).
In that test it's far surpassed by the $70 Pentium G620 - that's really telling.
Your Caviar Green as the primary HD will be a major bottleneck.
Also I really hate brands like Radimax and Xion, they produce a lot more crap than quality products. We use a lot of Raidmax cases where I work and they fall apart really easily, overheat easily, and have terrible air flow in general.
For the most part your build looks pretty decent, here's what I suggest on a $900 build:
awesome thanks for the input. I have a couple additional questions, for the cooler that g-unit1111 suggested, is that going to be needed since im not going to be doing any overclocking? also the HD that was suggested was a bare drive, is there a cable that i would have to purchase along with that?
