Building on a $1000-$1100 budget Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: May 14, 2012 6:58 PM in Systems Share dshlass May 14, 2012 4:47:44 AM Have looked into many deals that Canadian sites have been offering for DIY combo kits. I have looked into this one in particular....it seems to offer pretty good parts for the cheapest price. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz Quad-Core Unlocked Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard PSU: Ultra LSP550 550-Watt Power Supply RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Memory Kit HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive Case: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case CD/DVD Drive: Sony Optiarc AD7280S-OB 24x DVDRW Drive Total (with tax +s&h) $767.90 Now I have been told that this offer has a P.O.S PSU, so I am looking to purchase a new one, as well as a separate GPU. If someone could help me with choosing each for this build that would be great. On a side note.....I need to buy a keyboard/mouse/monitor also, and are open to suggestions as well.
