Amazon only

3 quick things

1. Does it look compatibl

2. Can you get me a better deal on anything my budget was really 350

3. Can you find me a better hard drive with more space for that cost.

Ps don't do any of that if you spend a wee more you get this bs. As I stated 350 was my real budget. God bless and thanks

You need a different hard drive with a SATA 3gb/s or 6gb/s interface. And different ram rated at 1.5v rather than 1.65v (I could be wrong about the ram).

Nice selections from DavidY. If you can do the $421 (but no more!) see if you can get a GDDR5 version of the HD6670 instead of that DDR3 version.
When you later get another $25 or so, your first upgrade should be a second stick of RAM so you can operate in dual-channel mode.
...although I notice that build doesn't include a case. Please do NOT buy a Logisys PSU-shaped object to run your new PC. It is likely to blow chunks if loaded over 50%, OR if your sister turns on a hair dryer or your Mom runs the garbage disposal, whichever comes first.

This is the best I could do, and it doesn't include the OS. I won't recommend anything I would not "risk" buying myself.

This is the next cheapest HD 6670 with DDR5:

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100326...

IMO, it's better to go to a faster graphics card in the $85-$90 range as follows:

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-112020...

Yes, dual channel mode for RAM is for future....1 empty memory socket allows a second 4 GB DDR3-1333. This is a bit slower than 2x2 GB....but at least you don't have to get rid of the memory for an upgrade.

I'll put another build together with your advice I'll be back later with it my questions are these

Is the intel g620 better than the possible 4 Core 3200 MHz

And are you sURE the 6670 beats the 6750 it's counterintuitive and isn't like any benchmark I've seen but I'll trust u

Also if nr could someone muster a build for unde 430 with everything but a screen an mouse From amazon thanks all post back later I will

I'll have it posted soon I'm replacing the gpu ram and hard drive but other builds appreciated cya layer
August 1, 2012 1:51:33 AM

What is this build for? A 3870K might be more suitable for your budget, using its onboard GPU.

The Pentium will outperform the Athlon II in games; mixed elsewhere, depending on how well the task uses multiple threads. Here's a comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/189?vs=406
The HD6750 will beat the HD6670, but this sacrifice was made to make budget.
August 1, 2012 2:04:12 AM

No way am I using an integrate chip I'd rather keep my current build with its "compatible" parts sorry but I'm DONE with on boards lol I have never experienced a game in my life above 50 food and minimal settings with a gpu mod for performance I'm almost there lol...
August 1, 2012 2:06:03 AM

Ok I'm sticking with the Athlon and 6750 thanks so much tho for the help :)  the compatible build is almost done and I'll be back to get another check godless all of u I've been an awesome help

"4 Core 3200 MHz"?

HD 6670 is a bit slower than the HD 6750. HD 7750 is similar to HD 6770....both are faster than HD 6750 and HD 6670.

Smeg45,

Pentium G630+HD 6670 is expected to be faster than A8-3870K APU (6650D). Both are similarly priced.

The athlong 450 unlocks a core my improved build will be here shortly I'm not changing the case I don't care if the psu fails In a year in a year I'll have more mine and even if it only puts out 320 w that's enuff for the parts and in a year I'll have cash xD thanks again
August 1, 2012 2:45:34 AM

dude if your psu goes then your hole system might blow up donl't cheap out on the psu@@!!!!
August 1, 2012 2:55:29 AM

Look I've read reviews on logisys on amazon I've read a lot I products (checked my history 16) and none I then have less than a 3 stat which is proficient good enough for me and that specific product the buyer had been using it for six months and gave it a five star review (out if five of course Llol) and i plan on building a 700 dollar build by next year anyway look at my signature of course by then today's high range are tomarrows mid so I'll manage
August 1, 2012 2:57:59 AM

ok then but just wanted to let you know and not wanting someone to think bad of toms hardware as a whole because you put a crap psu in your build.... Have fun building and good luck :)

I put your selection of components into eXtreme Power Supply Calculator with a few additional USB's (4) and the recommended wattage was 321w.

http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine

Needless to say, you'd be very lucky if that soda can choice of a power supply outputs 250w.

I'm not trying to be a a**hole but that's a very, very bad choice. Why come here asking for advice?

DavidY's choice of components were great... I'd personally take that Pentium over that old power hungry and inefficient Athlon any day of the week. Unlock the core and it turns into a 125w (160w max TDP) processor combined with other components with a bad power supply = a computer that's better served as a paper weight at best.

Thanks RussK. If he listens to either of us (or DavidY) it will save a lot of grief.

Well, I think I'm done here. Good luck.
