First Gaming PC Build: $800-900

I am 13 and I want to build a gaming PC from NEWEGG.COM and as said i want to keep it to 800-900 for the hole thing including (Monitor,keyboard,and mouse). I want to be able to play DayZ the arma 2 mod at very high or high with atleast 35 FPS also i would like to play crisis at high aswell this computer would be used for gaming and internet only no editing or stuff like that. I would like a Intel proccesor not Amd. Im not shure but i heard on youtube intel is better so thats why I am picking Intel. I would not be overclocking because i wont know what i am doing and would probbaly break the computer, So no overclocking. I would be playing other games like counter strike and stuff but that should be it so if you guys can help me that would be GREAT!!!!!!!!

    too many 13 year olds on this site. no worries bro. im 14

    you have 20 bucks for the keyboard and mouse. id suggest saving some cash for a nice mech keyboard

    if you buy everything from newegg, it would cost you a bit more. id suggest getting from us.ncix.com since they have price matching and free delivery. price match as much as you can (MIRs cant be included in the price though) and if you cant price match some items since you cant find it on their site, get it from newegg or something along those lines
  2. Or, if you have a nearby Microcenter, you could get the CPU and motherboard for cheap. But +1 to TLT's build.
  3. buy this:

    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: G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($49.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ Newegg)
    Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card ($229.99 @ Newegg)
    Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.49 @ SuperBiiz)
    Power Supply: Antec 550W ATX12V Power Supply ($54.99 @ Newegg)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ SuperBiiz)
    Monitor: Asus VH236H 23.0" Monitor ($149.98 @ NCIX US)

    Yes i do know that your build is powerfull but its 150 over budget Im looking for 700-800 cause i am putting in 300 and my family does the rest so that it is only 500 (They would only buy me a 500 doler desktop so thats why 150 dollars is to much)

    The post of title says 800-900 (but we usually make the OPs strecht their budget if its worth it) and in the case the extra 50$ in my buid are DEFINITELY worth it (you said you had 900$ :sarcastic: )

    The OS would be like 50 more and I still need a keyboard and mouse so that would be like 1000 right there

    throw all the components into the shopping cart, go to the bottom and press the start price match button. there, you can throw all the links to the site where you find the lowest price

    @TheLittletroll wouldnt the AMD Phenom II X4 965 be bettter than the i3 gaming wise?
  19. not really but heres a benchmark
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/289?vs=102
  20. I say get the 965 and overclock it. At 3.7 or 3.8 it would be better than the i3. For gaming, i3 is more powerful, but the four cores help in multitasking.
