Budget Range: 700 could go a little more if i have to before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and internet

Parts Not Required:Keyboard,Mouse, Monitor, I have a rosewill 750 watter power supply, 300gig HD wich i think should be fine reusing. I also have windows vista but If windows 7 is a upgrade to help in gaming Ill go with that

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:new egg

Country:United states

Parts Preferences:no preference

Overclocking:maybe

SLI or Crossfire: maybe in future

monitor is samsung syncmaster 2253bw max resolution 1680 x 1050


im just looking for best bang for my buck, I have a build in my shopping cart but want a idea if what im shooting for is about the same. I have a simple understanding whats out there but i want oppinions on builds for best bang for buck that will last another 4 years with minimal upgrades and that is upgrade proof for atleast 3 years or so

Could he please link the Rosewill PSU? Not all the Rosewills were very good. Newer ones were solid but not the older ones.

Also I disagree with Unknown on CPU, MB, GPU and HDD choice.

Check out my $850 build here:

Since you don't need the HDD or possibly the PSU, that's $145 off which gets you to about your budget.

Well OP didn't need HDD and PSU, so yeah. And it is only a little more for more GPU and slightly more CPU power, plus future proofing. The PSU isn't terrible. Not fantastic but it'll work.

HDD is important but not worth the cost they are now. He has a 300GB might as well use it, if he wants he can always upgrade later.

Why get that Z77 board? You it only gets Crossfire/SLI at 16x/4x. Which is a whole lot worse than 8x/8x. The board is Z68 but it doesn't mean it can't be used for IB. Z77 only gets a native PCI 3.0 and native USB 3.0 controller. Nothing of huge improvement. Z68 has Gen3, and the on the board USB 3.0 controller still performs the same.

Build looks solid.

Yes. Gen3 is manufactured to be for Ivy Bridge to have PCI 3.0 utilization on Z68 boards.
