Ask ! Get the answer boulbox July 12, 2012 8:26:44 PM get an i5 3570k and an ASrock extreme4 at microcenter around $290 Extreme4 is a popular buy so the chances of it being sold out is fairly high if it is not there go for the GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX or P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Z77 ATX will cost a little bit more but will still be in budget range RAM:Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 very cheap and good ram, if you are at microcenter i would say you might as well buy from there Burner:22X DVD±RW Burner with Dual Layer Support if you are like me and never use the burner, you can get this one for fairly cheap to load up win7. if you already have an older computer with a burner, you may just take and reuse that one or if you have a thumb drive you can load up win7 into the driver and install win7 from that HDD:Barracuda 7200.9 500GB 7,200 RPM if you need more, just buy another or buy a complete 1TB at the start to save some money PSU: if you plan of not adding another card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this will be great if you do plan on putting inside another card then http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... this is a very nice PSU. if you are a beginner at building 1) get a case with good cable management such as the 300R G-unit recommended the 500r(400R is pretty much the same as 300R so it is not worth to mention) antec 900 pretty much any case over $75 the other way is to buy a little more expensive PSU that is modular if you do go this way i would say http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (really recommend this one) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (not really recommended since it is the same the NZXT's Hale series since it is made by the same seasonic company and costs a little more) if you can fit a 670 into the budget it will be perfect for a few years if not buy a 7850 and after a year or 2 get a second one m 0 l TheBigTroll a b C Monitor July 12, 2012 8:40:59 PM take g-unit1111's build but i would change the psu to a xfx xxx750w and the motherboard to a gigabyte z77x-ud3h or ud5h if you want even more features m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
