Please, help me.( Rig Comparison)

Please can you help me with this little tiny comparison.
I am gonna buy a new Desktop soon since my old one is 7 years old and dying and the budget is as near to 1000 Euros as possible.

Since my belief is that gaming computers are the best computers and i do enjoy gaming a lot i will focus on buying a gaming focused PC.

So I was thinking this at first.

CPU INTEL CORE I7-3770 3.40GHZ LGA1155 - BOX

Hard Drive 1 OCZ OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 120GB VERTEX 2 E-VERSION SATAII 2.5'' SSD
Hard Drive 2 SEAGATE BARRACUDA LP ST1000DL002 1TB SATA2

RAM 2 x MUSHKIN 991769 4GB DDR3 PC3-10666 1333MHZ ESSENTIALS SERIES

Graphic Card ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5 2GB PCI-E RETAIL

Motherboard ASUS P8H77-M

CASES ASUS VENTO TA-M21 BLACK

Power THERMALTAKE TR2 700W ATX23

Of course that would be with a windows 7 64 bit.

Now this is a ready-made computer that costs around 1399 but has other stuff like mouse and keyboard that i did not post here because i do not need them rated.


However i found another site that lets you build your own computer and is reasonably priced.
So according to minor search that i have done i made this that looks to me that it is better than the one above.

So here goes

Fazn 320 Midi (Black , ATX )

Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W 80+ Bronze

Intel-Core i7 3770 (s 1155 , 3.4 GHz , 8 MB)

Corsair-Hydro Series H60 CPU Cooler (s775/ s1155/ s1156/ s1366/ sAM2/ sAM3)

Gigabyte-Z77MX-D3H (s 1155 , Z77 , DDR3 , HDMI)

Corsair-Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 Kit

OCZ-Agility 3 Series 60GB SSD (2.5", Sata 6Gb/s, AGT3-25SAT3-60G)

Seagate-ST3750525AS 750GB HDD 3.5" (32MB Cache, 7200RPM, Sata 6Gb/s)

Sapphire-7870 OC (PCI Express , 2 GB , GDDR5)

This one costs around 1552 euros with a monitor.

So first of all, which one is better.
Second , which one is worth its money.
Suggestions on imporving or changing either one of those two and then reniew the comparison please?

More about please comparison
  1. Build your own PC!!
  2. the second one is better would be cheaper if you build your own
  3. The second one i did build myself. Do you think i should change something, perhaps something that would lower the budget without having to lower the performance?
  4. for gaming you wont see any difference between a 3570k and the 3770k you have there. well you will but not till you overclock the 3570k, as it can be overclocked easily and will save you about 80 euros on the system.
    if you build it yourself you can get a better system for the same money. or either of those systems much closer to your 1000 euro goal.

    Well no need for a 850 watt psu, 500 should be fine. Also for gaming a i5-2500k/3570k would be perfect, 3770 has no benefit. Also I would stay away from closed loop liquid coolers, go with a hyper 212 or something of that nature.
  6. I found a much better site which supplies computers where i live( greece)

    So I built a completely new pc which goes down to 1400


    RAIDMAX TYPHOON SIDE WINDOW BLACK

    INTEL CORE I5-3570K 3.40GHZ LGA1155 - BOX

    THERMALTAKE CLP0596 FRIO ADVANCED

    ASUS P8H77-V

    CORSAIR CMX8GX3M2A2000C9 XMS3 8GB (2X4GB) PC3-16000 DUAL CHANNEL KIT

    GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX570 GV-N570OC-13I OVERCLOCK 1.3GB PCI-E RETAIL

    WESTERN DIGITAL WD7500AADS 750GB CAVIAR GREEN SATA2

    OCZ OCZSSD2-1VTXPL60G 60GB VERTEX PLUS SATAII 2.5'' SSD RETAIL

    LG E2242T 21.5'' LED FULL HD BLACK

    CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER 7.1 AUDIGY SE BULK

    AEROCOOL E80-600 ECO-FRIENDLY SERIES 600W


    Is there anything missing?

    this costs 1457euros , is it better than the previous one with the 7870 graphic card replaced with the GTX 570?
    Is everything compatible?
  7. In my opinion if youve got the money you should go for this build.
    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cOI4
    It's got more than twice the GPU power of the builds you listed
  8. I am afraid the price should go down instead of going up, i should not be able to afford that rig. Perhaps something better with max price 1500?(Better than the ones I listed)
  9. I live in greece and i would like to avoid having to order a PC from abroad. This is the site that allows me to build any pc i want.
    http://www.e-shop.gr/PER_pc_config_desktop.phtml
    The computers are not premade they simply list the parts here and i would like to order it from this site if its possible.
    If you really want to help you can use this site and tell me your suggestions with what this has to offer.
