First gaming rig build help Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Systems Last response: May 8, 2012 12:51 PM in Systems Share mrtoillet May 8, 2012 10:19:49 AM Hi there, how does this sound. I live in NZ so parts are expensive so this is for $1000 NZ. Would use for gaming on new games Core i5 2400 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Gigabyte b75m-d3h Asus 7770 DC 500W Enermax tomahawk 2 500GB WD Cavier Blue Raidmax Atlas Case Any improvements welcome, or if things aren't compatible could you say.

I'm not confident in the PSU. m 0 l Zero_ a b B Homebuilt system May 8, 2012 10:56:32 AM if this is for gaming, I'd suggest getting a Core i3 and using that budget on a better graphics card, possibly a HD6950 or GTX560Ti. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

I hope you're playing on a lower-res monitor, or that you're okay with medium settings in games. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
