My complete build- Asking the Gurus- Thankyou!

Hello! Thankyou for taking your time to look at my thread.

Here is what I am looking for:

I am anticipating the release of Diablo 3, and currently running something that will not give me an experience I would enjoy.

So what I am trying to do is build a computer for 700-800 dollars. I have mouse, keyboard, 37 inch HDMI Vizio.

This is the build I have currently on my list to buy:

For a total of 750. There are some Mail in rebates.

What I was wondering; Is all this compatible, and is this build nice in general for the price?

I have a hard-drive that has windows on it- but it's tied to my motherboard. If I could use my hard-drive and windows, I would save alot of money.

Thankyou!

More about complete build gurus thankyou
  1. Better PSU:
    XFX Pro 550W Core Edition 80Plus Bronze $70 ($15 rebate)

    Other than that yes it's a good build.

    If your current OS is OEM version then it is tied to your current motherboard. You could try to reuse it, but you might have to phone Microsoft up to ask them to reactivate it on your new motherboard. Which is not guaranteed to be successful.
    If you have a retail version OS then you can just install it on your new build no problems.
    The HDD is not tied to anything, so you can reuse your current HDD.
  2. Ah Thankyou for your reply. I realize I could re-use the hard-drive, but I'd rather leave it complete with the build I have now, that way my wife can use this computer aswell. Nothing wrong with it, besides it's from 08. Not up to date and not up to speed :P
  3. Case - No front USB 3 port, a huge deficiency in my book.

    Id really try and get a 6870 in there .... On;y $10 more but comes with free game

  4. Nice assemble you got there! It looks you just made a nice research before posting here!
  5. Which 6870 would you recommend?
  6. Sapphire, it's cheapest and just as good as any of the 6870 gpu manufacturers. BTW great build , good luck.
  7. Thankyou all so much!! I greatly appreciate it. Everything would be compatible? Will be purchasing in around 2 weeks- I have enough now but want to make absolutely sure that I wont regret spending my hard earned money. At minimum wage and the cost of living, this can take an extremely long time to save up. Atleast having this computer will save me gas money from going to do things (Lol)
  8. Anyone else able to comment on the build? Is it worth 750 bucks in your opinion?
