Hello people! Okay well im deciding to build my first gaming computer but I wanna invest big (kind off) and make this computer a good one to last a while. Im new to this whole computer build stuff but i need your guys help to see if all of these parts are compatible!

Parts:

MOTHERBOARD: 1) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005UDITT6/ref=olp_pro...

CPU: 2) http://www.amazon.com/Intel-BX80623I52500K-Core-i5-2500...

RAM: 3) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0058J1QYC/ref=as_li_ss_til?ta...

HDD: 4) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004CSIG1G/ref=as_li_ss_til?ta...

OR : ??? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004W2JKWG/ref=as_li_ss_til?ta...



PSU: 5) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001IZ7MHU/ref=as_li_ss_til?ta...

OR

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-master-Supply-240-Pin-RSA0...

GPU: 6) http://www.ebay.com/itm/XFX-AMD-Radeon-HD-7850-2GB-DDR5...

I think those are all the required parts (besides dvd drive) But let me know if all of these work! I wasnt too sure on what to pick for the graphics card (i want goood x100)
Leave your comments below or suggestion! thanks!

That's an excellent machine you propose....For future proofing...I would use the 1200W Corsair PSU and if you wanted pure speed...I would choose 2X the SSD's then set them up in a raid 0 config...striping those would make the machine feel lightning fast...then spend some money on maybe a 1TB storage drive.

Otherwise this would be an extremely nice rig to build and would feel lightning fast with the two SSD's. If you want just a lot of storage...then the 2TB for storage purposes...it's your choice...if gaming speed is everything...if not so much...the storage is preferable :pt1cable:  :hello:

since no one needs a 1200 watt psu I decided to click the links anyway

That computer needs a 500 watt psu . 650 watt to crossfire

HELLO there my friend...that's a rather broad statement you're making there... as to just whom "NO ONE" is actually referring to!

For instance....if one was a avid gamer that really likes playing heavy hitting games and preferred multiple GPU configs say like a tri-sli NVidia 580 setup...hmmm... let's see say to the tune of about....736W...and that's a fairly common setup for a lot of high end gamers.

NO? :o  See here...http:// www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-580-3-way-sli-review...

ALSO look at a tri-sli 480 here

http://techreport.com/articles.x/19404/10

(that's 678W's there as well)

Those are rather large numbers under full load and if you add in the overhead for the rest of your hardware...let's say another 200W AND if you are prone to being bitten by the overclock bug....like I believe most gamers are...lets add another hmmmmmm...say 200-250Ws...extremely possible/likely today and you can find THOSE figures all over the internet...then we are now pushing oh.....1085 to 1136 TOTAL system Watts....and what if he wanted to add a couple of speedy SSD's to that and a larger raid array for storage of say 4TB's then we're talking even more.

ALSO :bounce:  this gentleman stated in his request for opinions...this...

"Okay well im deciding to build my first gaming computer but I wanna invest big (kind off) and make this computer a good one to last a while."

He wants to INVEST "BIG" kind of...for longevity I believe it was :) 

So not everybody has the same wants or needs as you or I do...yeah..that 500W or 600W will get him on just fine, BUT ONLY for now...that low wattage psu doesn't leave a lot of room for even a second gpu never mind a third gpu...or a 5 drive raid array OR well who knows...maybe a couple or three 200cm fans...the limit is HIS imagination...

I believe it would be better to "GO BIG" now and have more power than you need rather than be LIMITED because I did NOT plan ahead earlier!!

He didn't state that he was trying to MINIMIZE his budget...rather he wanted to have a rig that was built FOR GAMING and was future proofed a bit....and he was WILLING to invest somewhat big NOW to avoid having to do so at a later date...Just trying to go along and give choices he ASKED about!!


MY PREFERENCE when building a new rig for myself and what I use as "Best Practices" is simple:
Purchase the ABSOLUTE BEST "SINGLE RAIL" PSU with the Highest Wattage my budget can stand...I ONLY use PCPower&Cooling PSU's...that's MY PREFERENCE AND how I build because:

POWER IS the HEART of the computer...nothing works without it and it must be super clean and have virtually no line droop.

I didn't tell Guatamato that...that's not what he asked...he asked about hardware he had already specced out and was interested in purchasing in an effort to provide for a lot of upgrade room later on.

Just saying...not trying to be a smartaxx....but I want Guatamato to understand WHY I answered his query the way I did...and my reasoning behind what I said!

First things first...Sata is the connection interface for a harddrive or a optical drive...cd/dvd or bluray. it's a high speed interface which is actually...Serial ATA or SATA.

As far as how many FPS or Frames Per Second...it all depends on what game you are playing...different games produce different results...also the gpu and what levels you have it set to..ie anti aliasing or aa..and a slew of other things.

You should go and read up on how to configure a video card for gaming..what each setting means and what it does..also how performance is impacted when you use different enhancements and resolutions ie..1920/1080 HD or High Definition.

Seriously google how to set up a video card for specific games you know you will be playing and different resolutions as to how they affect the video cards performance!

This will allow you to ask your questions with a bit more information so we can figure out what it is you want to know.

There's to many variables the way you asked this question...without enough information to provide an accurate or appropriate answer.

Sorry about that but you need to be more specific as to your machine and what games you will be playing and at what settings including your resolution!

Hope this provides a direction for you so you can figure out what you need to ask!:)

Thank you so much! Okay FYI I would probably be playing minecraft call of duty in 720 hd and so forth and I think I'm getting the mother board model but the 3rd gen pro version! 3 questions for you. What do you think of the computer I am trying to get and build(good bad what are your takes on it?) 2. Over clocking. What are your thoughts on it and how do you do it? 3) suggestions, comments?

That's an outstanding motherboard...103 reviews at newegg and massively popular...the unique cooling system is awesome and it uses high grade ferrite chokes and components are top tier.

Everything else is optimal for a gaming rig...one thing...you will NEED a better HSF...heat sink and fan for your cpu cooler...you have two options...air cooling OR water cooling..no overclocking but heavy game fragging will increase your heat output...I would recommend

THIS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For your money...it can't be beat...just go to youtube to see how to mount it! There's a couple of hints to successfully mount it for best performance.

Read the reviews on newegg and ignore the ones about stripping or breaking bolts...ie the hints in the videos.

Also on overclocking...I would watch the video below for the chipset clarification as to how it performs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7jwCe0QXT0&feature=rela...

There's a gob of videos on youtube for the 2500K and how to overclock it...so use the video above and look at some videos for the cpu and you should have a good idea of the processors capabilities and limits on voltage and such..then apply both to overclocking your rig.

For the money...that case you picked includes a HEFTY price for shipping ($44) AND it's only a mid tower...for $10 bucks more and $10 bucks shipping you can have this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's the case I use...it includes a tower so huge you could build two computers inside it and they would never even see each other LOL...sorry couldn't help myself...this case is so huge AND it includes 5x 140MM fans...2x230MM Top fans...1x230MM side case fan...a 120MM fan mount on the backside of the motherboard tray...and options to install 5x120MM fans with that side 230MM fan AND if you take the 230MM side fan off...you can mount 9X120MM fans on the side panel instead...it also has internal fan headers "top and bottom" with room to connect 6 fans to each header...the thing is the most awesome case I've ever owned...it's ridiculous the airflow....my motherboard temps STAY at 24C-29C and cpu temps idle at 25C-29C...that's a 2700K overclocked to 4.6 turbo and it can reach a stable 4.9 GHz at 31C idle...that's ridiculous

The cpu cooler is most important when overclocking and if you DO want to push it...then get the CoolerMaster H100 and an extra pair of 120MM fans for a push/pull config and make sure to mount it the thing in the top of your machine with all four fans set to blow out/up...there are little arrows on the side of the fan casing indicating airflow direction...point all arrows to blowing "out" the top!

This will give you a machine that doesn't have even a hint of the possibility of heating issues of ANY KIND.

So that's what I think...your motherboard will love that setup...the processor is smoking performance in all respects...that ram is hi-end for gaming....the rest is up to you....but if you go this route...you will have a machine that is future proof for 3-5 years and will also be a smoking hot competitor at any frag fest you could think of!!

Nice job my friend!:)

AH! thank you sososososos much! you give amazingly amazing replies full of everything that i want!:D  I really appreciate it! (especially for a newbie like me :p  ) Okay lastlastlast question! (i promise.....untill the future....)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What do you think of this case?! ilike it due to fan control, sleek look, spacious? and all the fans accessible! and of course the neat keeping (the wires go through a hole and are in the back) it keeps it as a nice clean look! but what do you think abbout this?

It's an excellent case...has nice airflow and looks sharp as can be. The value is there for the money...the corners are rounded off so no sharp edges to get cut on, 5.25 drive bays are reconfigurable to face forward or sideways, has adapters for 2.5 hard drives, multiple fan mounts, and awesome filter system for air intake to be filtered keeping that interior much cleaner and dust bunny free!

I like the design of the case, the handle's located so as to balance the entire machine when loaded with your hardware for packing around, it has a cable lock at the rear preventing theft of connected peripheals because the cables get locked down, and the case also has a harddrive dock located on the top for a hot swappable sata harddrive.

For the money...that's a verrrrrrry nice case with a LOT going for it...you build this machine, it's worthy of pictures and carrying to any frag fest or Lan party!

Your friends will turn green with envy..

I gotta say...for a first build...and your first effort...you have done good....extremely well...and top notch components all around.


This rig should remain relevant for 3-5 yrs with very little effort. The components that will be evolving in that time period will be wild...SSD's are gonna change, hdd's are gonna change, the cpu itself will be undergoing massive transformations...the gpu's will be wildly different, the O/S is already evolving to "touch centric" interfaces...also speech commands, the xbox 360 Kinect controller and the LEAP controller that utilize gestures to transmit intended input...will be integrated into our computers...mice will be a thing of clunky obsolete useage....all manner of upgrades, innovations and creations are going on daily...think the "Minority Report" movie. Storage and ram are in the middle of coming of age "like science fiction" so the rigs we build now will be outdated and old in 5 yrs but half the fun in this IS evolving design, useage, I/O methodologies, storage, and RAM and our ability to incorporate these changes into our rigs!

THIS IS A PERFECT START.:) :) 

Hope that answers your questions and I'm always around if you need more info!

Have a blast building and enjoying what is inevitably a very exciting new path to go down with the ONLY limitations being your budget and imagination...just like the rest of us...so go forth and build for fun...just build!!!

You're really suggesting that he gets a GTX 480 in tri-SLI? And you are all wrong. No one here is going to suggest a 2-gen old GPU when there are much better options, like a Radeon 7850 in CF, and it only requires 650W to CF.

You keep talking what YOU would do and what YOU say they NEED...what about what THEY want to do instead?

I'm NOT suggesting anybody anything...I'm asking WHAT IF...they want tri-sli...or Quad-Xfire???

Doncha get it...there are legitimate reasons for larger power supplies..period...otherwise why build them...and why do they sell???

There's 212 folks that purchased a 1000-1199W PSU's here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

AND 782 who purchased a 1100W -1799W PSU here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

You reckon they ALL were engineers??? You reckon this is the ONLY online retailer that is selling these gigantic PSU's....NOPE...there's a LOT of others as well...

As I stated before...I'm NOT recommending MY preferences here....I'm just trying to answer Guatamo's question as to "Going BIG" and Future proofing his gaming rig!!!

He has already stated that he is NOW GOING TO OVERCLOCK his rig...and he's looking down the line as to what he can do to improve his gaming rig and experience thereby improving his skills at building a Personal Computer for HIS purposes!

I'm not saying you're not right in your assessment of what YOU consider MORE than enough..but other folks have OTHER ideas as to what THEY like...that's all...we ALL have our own limits and what WE INDIVIDUALLY prefer...but those preferences are almost always different from the next guys, and the next girls, and the rest of humanity...no two people think exactly alike...that's a FACT!

So I try to provide answers to the questions THEY want answered...not what I prefer to have, do, or build.

By the way ...a trio of Nvidia 580s are VERY RELEVANT TODAY...TOMORROW...and on down the line...

so you see...we all like what WE like...but there's no problem with that LIKE being individualized and appropriate to what each of us prefers.:)

Newegg reviews and what newegg-ers buy is not a good way to base your views on. Using real reviews is what gets an argument across. You are right in the fact that we don't know what he wants. However, our job is to guide him on the right path.

June 4, 2012 5:27:49 AM

NOPE...that's not our job...Simply because OUR right path may very well NOT be HIS right Path!

as far as the reviews...my point...is that a LOT of people ARE purchasing these high current PSU's for a reason...there IS a legitimate need and scenario that requires that much power and since he stated his preference for "going big" then the 1200W psu provides for all the upgrading he could want to do at anytime down the road...and at a $179 it's not exactly breaking the bank either.

OUR JOB... IMO and only IMO... is to provide relevant information as to what they are asking...and yeah we can provide our opinion but if we do..we should back the opinion up with descriptive and repeatable examples of what we are saying so that our line of reasoning is clearly appropriate and applicable to their question!

When it comes to hardware of any type..everything is a "personal preference" choice...when asking what others think...the answer will always be subjective but doesn't need to be non-quantitative. We need to provide a base experience and why it works... hopefully for them as well as for us.

If our personal experience doesn't fit their desired useage...if it isn't adaptive to their scenario...then we should provide other reasons why we believe it fits their specific need.

If we can't do that...then we shouldn't answer the question and be upfront and honest by replying we don't have an answer in our experience that will address the question being asked.

I just used the newegg references because they include total numbers of component purchased!!! That's a quantifiable answer with data to prove what I was intending to say was in fact...a truth.

Just realize this...Guatamo's PATH is different from yours AND different from mine....but since he's a newbie...at system building...I provide what I consider to be a "best practices" approach. In other words...since he IS a newbie...and he's already picking out components that are DIRECTLY applicable to his needs and so far those components are at or near the top of gaming hardware...and....he's already changed his mind about overclocking...why in the world would I tell him to cut back on the one item that is the "HEART AND SOUL" of his machine...the POWER SUPPLY! Since he already picked out a modest 700W but thought "maybe...just maybe" he could go bigger and picked out a 1200W PSU as well...then I'm a believer in this approach:

Purchase the ABSOLUTE BEST "SINGLE RAIL" PSU with the Highest Wattage my budget can stand or Your budget can stand!

Power is the computers kryptonite..just like we can't survive without H20... clean water...neither can the computer survive without clean, ripple free, power in abundant supply, especially since now..he wants to overclock and be at the top end of component quality and ability!

So can we just "agree to disagree" here and just maybe... we Can agree on this...we all like what we like...and most of us have reasons why we make the choices we do...it's possible that our experiences may prove to be relevant to anothers needs but shall we let the INDIVIDUAL asking the question to choose...rather than to say MY WAY IS THE ONLY WAY?

I pick and choose what I prefer to listen to as advice..based on my experience and what I can find out for myself...I depend on other opinions in an advisory manner only...if I want to know for sure...I read the suggestions and then go find out the facts as best I can..before applying the knowledge and experience from others to my unique situation, issue, or problem!

Just as you are free to pick and choose what you want to believe and apply to your own unique needs.

Friends? We are both here for the same reasons...to seek/give advice on Personal Computing and the hardware that's available and how it can be best utilized in our honest opinions and provide supportive links to the relevant data, to provide a clear and concise path as to how we arrived at OUR conclusion/s

Understood!

The decision to build your own irig s a personal decision and not one to jump into lightly whithout thinking it all the way through.

Only you can decide when IS the right time to upgrade your computer...ONLY YOU!

I didn't intend to get into a philosophical discussion over your building yourself a computer that "you" built yourself!

My apology and I hope it didn't prevent you from achieving your goal despite what was going on.

Again...My Most Profound apology. I'm sorry:)
