  1. AMD FX 4100 cpu $110
    AM3+ mb with a 970 chipset $90
    2 x2 gig of 1600 MHz RAM running at 1.5 volt $30
    HAF $60?
    500 gig hard drive $75
    dvd drive $19
    Radeon 6870 $160
    500 watt psu ~ $70

    You also need windows but dont pay for that now . Just download the preview of windows 8 . You will have to do a full reinstall when 8 is released in a few months but its better than having to do an update on 7
  2. The above looks good; you can also consider this if you care about USB 3.0:
    NZXT Tempest 210 $55 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146084

    A 500W PSU is going to be less than $70.

  3. i suggest these PC component
    i3-2120 120$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077
    msi-z77-G43 100$
    HDD 500gb seagate 75$
    radeon 7850 250$
    2x4GB 50$
  4. Agreed with above. The i3-2100 is better at stock than the FX 4100 and the GPU is a lot better.
  5. yea, i would rather go for the i3 than the FX series, i heard that the FX series is better for rendering than for 3D gaming
  6. You are wasting Z77 on 1) a non OCing CPU and 2) a Sandy Bridge CPU. Cut down to H67.

    Then use the same build and buy the GPU later, you can use the Intel HD 4000 in the meanwhile. thats what im gonna do until i can get more money.
