  1. Umm all of these priducts are all bought on the newegg website except the pc case
  2. Id get a Z77 UD3H mobo for your CPU. It provides a lot of useful features.

    As far as your GPU goes, Id go with a 7850 or maybe a 660Ti. (7850 - around 250 and 660Ti - around 300) They will both consume less power and give awesome OCing capability. (Gigabyte, MSI and Asus have very good cooling for their cards so you may want to get a card from them.)
  3. Ooo will it raise the price higher?
  4. Most likely, but not much. Can you buy from other websites besides newegg? Do you also have a Microcenter near you? (They give you a $50 discount when you buy a CPU + mobo combo.)
  5. Is your rig great? And if it is could you tell me the price?
  6. Hmm i'm not sure but i'll see

    Wait how bout your rig is it good?
  8. Gives me good performance in gaming, for my resolution. (1366x768)
    The i5 2400 is one of the best gaming processors for under 2400, but Id stay with your 3570K as its better, faster and can OC well.
    Your GPU is better than mine.
  9. Oo ok ok thqnks let me try to see
  10. I know this is a stupid question and im new to these things so wat is overclocking?
  11. Overclocking or OCing is when you make hardware perform at higher speeds than it was at stock. Technically, you just make hardware perform faster.
  12. Is the 660Ti from MSI that good cuz there are very little reviews of it in amazon or in newegg
  13. And for the mobo u suggested is it the one from Gigabyte? And wat is 3d + virtu mvp digital power
  14. 660Ti from MSI will do great.
    Yes, from Gigabyte. 3D + Virtu MVP Digital Power.. well, that I dont know. (This may seem awkward but I really dont know about that lol.)
  15. Ooo haha i read a post that u said the ud5h is better (from the guy making a rig under 700 euros)
  16. And is it better to buy a 16 gb (2x8) or what and better corsair or g skill
  17. Any other opinions guys?
  18. If you can get a UD5H, then get one, otherwise the UD3H is one of the best of the bunch.

    You wouldnt need 16GBs of RAM for a gaming build. (unless you also plan on using programs that use up alot of RAM.) Just get 2x4GB, it will usually last you for the whole lifetime of your PC. (unless games will use up more than 8GBs in the future lol.)

    Corsair or G.Skill.. whichever. Theyre both equally good brands.
  19. Ooo from your experience is g skill good?
  20. And is there anything else that needs to be changed?

  22. Is this build better than my old one?
  23. If you have a microcenter near you, you can get your CPU + mobo for cheaper

    A few differences. The 750w psu allows you to add another card later on in SLI for a dual card set up, I threw in that CM EVO cpu h/s allowing you to over clock, and the vid card is different ...a gtx 660 ti.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/6159/the-geforce-gtx-660-ti-review/13 <------ Here's some benchmarks to have a look at. The 660 ti beats the 570 in every game benched on there, uses less juice, and runs cooler.
  25. Nice
  26. How bout the keyboard and monitor?

    How bout the keyboard and monitor?

    The monitor I posted is 1" smaller than the one you have in your build (22" vs 23") otherwise they are pretty much the same. Same resolution (1920 x 1080), both LED, and both HDMI. I threw that keyboard up there just to give you a look at it. It's probably the most recommended keyboard on here.
  28. What do u have for a keyboard? And have u tried the logitech?
  29. And is the casing you suggested good? Or is the 500r better?
  30. Anymore suggestions cuz im thinking of buying it soon but no rush i guess still waiting for best suggestion
  31. Id go for the keyboard Why_Me put in his build. Its really nice.

    The case he also posted is the same as the one you want, the 500R.
  32. Ooo haha
    Is the keyboard mechanical?
  33. Im pretty sure it is. (correct me if im wrong lol)
  34. Lol i'll check
  35. Well that keyboard is not mechanical.
  36. But its good right??
  37. Could you game bf3 on ultra with that video card?
  38. With Why_Me's build, you will handle BF3 in ultra. (without MSAA, I guess.)
    If you can afford the 670 for $400, it will do better. :)
  39. Wats mssa?
  40. Its a filter, like anti-aliasing or AA.
  41. Ooo ok and abput the hdd is smasung better or seagate better?
  42. Imo, Seagate.
  43. Sorry im still new to these things
  44. Is the corsair carbide 500 r the best for that price or are there any other better casing for that price ($100 in amazon) . What would you rate the sidewinder x4 out of 10
  45. Nothing wrong with that. Everyone started like that. :)
  46. Is the corsair carbide 500 r the best for that price or are there any other better casing for that price ($100 in amazon) . What would you rate the sidewinder x4 out of 10
  47. And does anybody know how long usually will my desktop last before i need to upgrade it once more?
  48. Corsair 550D or 500R, whichever. Id rate the sidewinder 9/10 since its an awesome keyboard. Usually, desktops are upgraded every 2-4 years depending on when the person has the money.
  49. Aww now im thinking rather to buy a laptop or desktop hahah
