I do already have window 7/Monitor/Keyboard(Although I'm looking for Good mechnical Keyboard atm)/Mouse
My budget is between $600~800
(It can go over if needed.)
I was just wondering if you guys had any suggestion to make it better without moving the price range too much.
Because this is the first computer I'll be building.
Computer usage is mostly for Strategy/RPG/FPS/Sport Online Gaming which often doesnt require much.
I'm planning on playing all the new games coming up [GW2 D3 which i'm not too worried about]
benjamincakir His GPU is a Gigabyte 6850 1GB. Anyways looks like a solid build however an Intel i3 would even be better but in your case if you can squeeze in a i5 2500k with an after market cooler would be even better.
A 2500k in a $800 build is not a good idea. You end up compromising the GPU power which is much more important. If it was a $1,000 build then the 2500k would be a no-brainer. The i3-2100 is the chip he needs to look at.
I would like to propose an Intel system though. You can get an i3-2100 which outperforms most AMD quads for around the same price. A 965 system is alright, though.
Everyone else's help was much appreciated as this but, I found this to be the "most" helpful for me.
Thank you for such detailed help,
[Switching CPU to Intel due to many advices that was given]
My only concern now is choosing between i3-2100 you've mentioned and i5-2550 that people have recommended me
I'm thinking of getting this for my motherboard. I could spend the extra $100~200 if I needed to but, my question is, is it worth it? ASUS P8Z68-V LE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Everything else I'm following your advice on it directly.
the i3-2100 (or 2120, which I would advise getting) can't really be compared to the 2500k or 2550k. The 2100 costs $120, the 2500k costs $220. To get a $220 CPU in your budget you would need to make significant cuts in other areas, most likely the video card. If you can fit the 2500k and a decent GPU (nothing below a GTX 560 Ti/6870) then it would be wise. Otherwise getting an i3-2100 is your best bet.
If you want a motherboard with sufficient upgrade capabilities, this is the mobo you want.
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 $120 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
More capable, better features and better price than the Asus. ASRock actually used to be part of Asus but decided to spin off. Do you need the upgradability of this board though? probably not. A cheaper board would do the trick.
If you were to go this route, how much do you have left over for a video card?
