Which is better?
I think that the second build will be better cause of CPU ( G840 is so poor )

the one with yours is fine
June 11, 2012 10:32:23 AM

you mean the first?

Both builds look a mess, if I'm honest.

Fill out this template: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/261222-13-build-adv... and get back to us!

Based on the 2 builds posted, you should be looking at something in-between:
i3-2120, B75 motherboard, 500-550w PSU, 4/8GB RAM, best GPU that can squeeze into budget..

Why u say that. my first build is ok and if i upgrade my cpu in few months it will be better. ( i cant buy from newegg.....)
June 11, 2012 10:38:10 AM

Over-priced mobo, weak GPU, unnecessary SSD, PSU isn't the best and 600w is unnecessary...
June 11, 2012 10:41:30 AM

the mobo will help me cause i will upgrade my CPU to a i5 3570K. and for psu i will crossfire the GPU when i can ( in a couple of months )

Sounds to me like your better off waiting a few months and buying then.

If your buying this for a gaming build, the 7770 is pretty weak really, you should be looking more towards a 7850 or better.

I think you could get much greater value from a build like:
i3-2120,
B75 motherboard,
550w PSU,
1600MHz 8GB RAM,
7850 GPU

rather than trying to mess about cross-firing a weak GPU, and spending money on a CPU that will simply be replaced and a motherboard thats about 2-3 times what you actually need to spend.

Post a budget, post where you'll be buying from, and see what people can recommend.

Look at this please it is not weak ( like a 7950!!! )

and i cant wait 5 months.. i want my pc now.
i told u and i tell u again my mobo listed is a Z77 (pci express 3.0 for the GPU and supports 3rd gen i5 CPU's that is the 3570K)

I never said CF was weak? I said a single card was weak. If you bought a single 7850 now and then CF'd THAT a few months down the line, you'd be getting EVEN MORE performance along with a good single card set up too.

Clearly you have already decided what you want to do so why even bother asking.

Personally on your *what seem's to be tight budget* - id be scrapping the SSD, buying a cheaper motherboard, getting a better PSU, and throwing a little more cash at the GPU, and getting 1600MHz RAM.

i wont get a ssd... i will take hdd 500gb its better i think.
June 11, 2012 11:55:04 AM

if you stick with a 500gb hard drive, y ssd caching. get some dirt cheap 32gb sata2 ssd and set up the caching. it speeds up our hard drive a lot
