I am building a new computer just for mainly watching movies on 1080p and gaming. sc2 etc no high intense graphic hogging games though.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week
Budget Range: ($420 ish)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: (gaming, watching movies)
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: already have a video card, 4870 just to save a bit.
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon
Location: Alameda, CA
Parts Preferences: Amd, XFX, gigabit, not really committed to anyone
SLI or Crossfire:No
Your Monitor Resolution:1920x1080
Additional Comments: What I have so far: -Haf 912 - $50.99 on amazon corsair 8gb 1333mhz - $41.99 samsung 830 - $88.5 Gigabyte Amd am3+ 760G + SB710 motherboard - $ 56 AMD 965 x4 - $100 Total = $403.71
My main concern is the motherboard. I do not know if it is adequate enough but I got it because it was really cheap. Please I would love some suggestion or parts recommendation. Thank you for your time.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: for movie watching and games like sc2 maybe diablo all on ultra maybe

More aboutcheap build
the 760Gs I think are limited to 95W CPUs - Athlon II X2/X3/X4, Phenom II X2/X3 and low wattage X4/X6 (like 840, 920, 1035, 1045), FX 4100, 6100
let me see what I can do for your $402, not including a video card. the 4870 is 3 generations old now, but still comparable to a 7770 or 6790.
Tank you I forgot to mention I won't need a optical drive. I rather go ssd since it was s cheap and it won't be my main computer so not a lot of files. But yea good catch on the motherboard. Hopefully amazon can match newegg prices.
