Hi,

I am looking for a gaming pc around $1000 budget. Prefer intel cpu, and radeon graphics card, not looking to overclock. Want to make sure pc isnt overheating, had problems previously. No need for OS or monitor, will need keyboard and mouse.


Could someone provide build for me to take a look? Thanks.

Sure, buddy here you go:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($28.98 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($124.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($42.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($79.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($368.00 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.49 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 500W ATX12V Power Supply ($57.08 @ NCIX US)
Keyboard: Logitech MK710 Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($69.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $1011.50

That build is extremely powerful, the only thing it needs to be perfect is an SSD witch i did not include so you could afford a more powerful video card, if you want an SSD you're gonna have to drop the GTX670 and get a 7870....i don't think that would be smart, look: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/598?vs=548

CPU - I was thinking I'd get you a non-overclocking 3450 but their not on sale.
GPU - Managed to get you a 7950 which trades blows with the 660ti but ultimately comes with 1 more GB of RAM and more memory interface band-width, though the memory is slower

Cooler - I assumed that IVY wouldn't need massive cooling at stock speeds to I think the Intel cooler win run you fine there.

Storage - I managed to get you a 2TB seagate 7200RPM AND A 64GB Crucial M4 SSD for Windows and maybe 1 or 2 apps.

PSU - Corsair 80-plus certified at 600W, you shouldn't run into any problems with power -- most of your components are low power.

MOBO - I chose Asrock over Asus for a few reaons. #1 the asrock comes with a heatsinked VRM opposed the Asus which only heatsinks one portion. The Asrock comes with two more SATA 6gb ports and the Asrock comes with Gold Capacitors -- longer MOBO life.

for the power the card says min of 500watt, then memory i was thinking something around 200 watt, then everything else so i was aiming for 750. What is the proper way to calculate this? Dont want to have any power issues. Thanks for all the help.

Don't worry, first of all, minimums on GPUs often overshoot by 50W-100W -- what matters if efficiency, specifically, an 80+ certification on the PSU. Your system will run fine on my 600 or even a 500w. I actually got low-voltage RAM as well.

http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index... -- Here is a PSU calculator

I actually did the whole calculation out, using a higher-end GTX 680 as the card, and got a recommendation of a 516W PSU.

If you are looking to SLI later, a good 650W will run 660ti's at about 80% load of the PSU, which is optimal.
