Hey guys, I decided to build my own computer since m old one just died. I'm going to b ordering the parts from Newegg this Friday, and I have been using this site for a lot of decision making. I came up with a list of parts I think would be good, and I was hoping you guys could give me the green light on this build or give some suggestions.
I'm hoping to run Battlefield 3 maybe on high or better and some racing sims like Project Cars on high as well. D you guys think it could do that? What could I do to make this a better build? Also I don't mind going a little bit over $900, it won't kill me but I want to keep it as close to $900 as possible. I would really appreciate the help!
I like the build overall, but the PSU has got to go. For one 7850, you won't need 680W, and CF is out of the picture because you have a board that has x16/x4 CF/SLI speeds (x16 from PCIe 3.0 and x4 from PCIe 2.0). Get the XFX 550W for $75.
Never heard of that RAM before. You can be thrifty on some PC parts but RAM is one you should spend premium on. Highly suggest you spend $4-$5 more and get a G.Skill Ripjaw or Corsair Vengence set of 2x4GB RAM.
The Case also is a little on the unknown side. Unless you are in love with that look I suggest looking into the highly rated cases like the Cooler Master Elite series, or the NZXT Source series of cases.
Okay, I hadn't noticed the thing with the PSU. As for the case and memory I think I'll go for those extra few bucks and go with another brand, and I had my doubts with the case. I just want a decent case for the $50 mark, but I'm not sure what to go with.
I just built my system with the Cooler Master Elite 430. Went with the Blue Corsair Vengence RAM and an Asus motherboard for a nice black and blue color combo. Ya kinda dorky but it looks sweet and the case was decent enough for what I needed.
I recently moved my wife into an Cooler Master HAF 912, it's a very nice budget case (certainly nicer than my rage inducing Thermaltake Element G). The HAF 922 is extremely nice if you want to go a little higher end, I built one for a friend, it was very good cable management, cleanest build I've ever done.
The PSU recommended by bigcyco1 is also quite nice, and is sufficient for the 7850, as is the Rosewill you linked. I would personally go for the Seasonic over Rosewill, but both are good brands, the Rosewill does offer the single 12V rail, which is a little bit of an advantage over the Seasonic, but Seasonics tend to be very solid PSUs in my experience. Never used a Rosewill, but have heard good things.
I really appreciate all the help guys, and I think this will make for a great computer. I'm happy with what I'm at for now but I still have 3 more days before I order the parts so I'm still open for suggestions!
EDIT: Scratch that, it might just be too small haha.
