Total: $559.89

*This is by far, my favorite build of this list because it has a LOT of potential, you could turn this mid-low-end PC into a full mid-high-end PC by replacing the CPU with a 2500k/3750k, adding a SSD and adding a second 7850 (PSU change necessary) do that and you've got yourself a nice and powerful gaming machine.
*Better suited for gaming than the build adove.
*Small and quiet.
*it has room for countless upgrades, you can buy a i5 2500k or a 3570k to maximize the power of this build.

*This PC is AWESOME for 2560x1600 gaming and it can perfectly handle 5760x1080 without any kind of lag
*The i7 allows you to record your game-play without the performance hit you would normally recive with an i5
*Insane CPU cooler for overclocking beyond 4.6Ghz without any problem.
*You can replace the 7970s for a pair of GTX670s but you will get a performance hit in most games and a slight performance gain in a few others, Read this to see how the 7970cf and GTX670sli compare, i could only find the comparison between the standard 7970 CF vs the GTX680 SLI so this isn't the real thing, the 7970 included in this build is the Ghz edition (Difference between the normal 7970 and GHz edition) which is fairly faster than the normal 7970 and the GTX680SLI is about 8% faster than the GTX670SLI so keep that in mind...

Always appreciate these posts :) 

Some points you may want to look at.

Build 1
Why use a Llano CPU then include a discrete GPU? Not needed for HTPC, your stated usage.

Build 3
You have paired an unlocked processor with a board that will not overclock.
The CPU cooler will not fit in that case.

Always appreciate these posts :) 

Some points you may want to look at.

Build 1
Why use a Llano CPU then include a discrete GPU? Not needed for HTPC, your stated usage.

Build 3
You have paired an unlocked processor with a board that will not overclock.
The CPU cooler will not fit in that case.



*Well, this builds are all intended to be used as "base builds" so people can customize them based on their preferences, the original HTPC build should be enough for HTPC usage and light gaming, that's why i added the GPU

*i fixed the build 3 :D  i replace a few parts and i was able to cram a 7870 for the same price :sol:

Great builds idroid - Question on your 1000 build

Is it worth getting the next step up speed of RAM? I think its 1833. With the components you have I am building a similar one (with your help from a different thread :)  ) and was curious about that since it doesnt seem much more $ for the 1833.

Also I noticed on your 1200$ build you used a different MOBO that is about 20$ more... the GIGA GAZ77 being the 20$ more than the ASUS p8z77
Is the GIga mobo that much better than the Asus?

Thanks

1866* RAM and no.... there is no real performance advantage in getting 1866 RAM unless you find them for the same price (or a tiny bit more) than 1600 RAM, like this kit for example: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-memory-cml8gx3m2a1...

These build lists generally suffer from a lack of updates over time :)  I have seen many come and go, and that's quite alright, it's a lot of work.

I don't agree with some of these and don't feel they are all practical, but that won't keep me from including the link in the master sticky :)  I'm not that arrogant, and there is no bad advice being given.

Take the first build for instance. The processor is an APU and does not need to have a discrete card added. If you are going to make an office machine then make one.
Most of the game titles you are going to play on a system like that will not benefit from hybrid crossfire or fail completely.
http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/ian-ste...

Second build. $89 for a narrow little case with one fan and a 350W PSU. Yet, you could easily get a bigger better case and bigger adequate PSU for the same (or less atm)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
Also, you are spending 110 bucks on an APU and then not using it for that. The same amount could get you a more powerful CPU to pair with that 6670 and you could also get a board with more features such as SATA III and USB 3.

I could go on...

*The thing with the first build is that... damn i don't know, i wouldn't fell OK without a dedicated GPU, i now its not necessary and i will definitely add that note to it, just so people can decide for themselves

First one would be better with a cheap $20 2x2 RAM kit. Better than 1x4.
For the 2nd build, 350w is a bit tight. Maybe a 400w or Corsair 430w?
For the 5th build, I'd recommend a Haf 912.

I realize that you have put a ton of work into these builds, but I'd just point out a few things:

1) Several builds lack an optical drive. Yeah, I know, it's the cheapest component you need, but still...

2) and this has always been a pet peeve of mine, none of them include an OS, so your very first build is actually $390 (Win7 and ODD).

3) I'd be extremely surprised if everything you've linked here is still at the exact same price. One good natural disaster and all of your pricing is out of whack (case in point, Hard Drives over the last year or so).

Still a great job.

Thanks for this, idroid. I'm going to purchase the components for the $1K build later tonight. The only change I'm planning is a Bluray drive and a different color case.

I came to the site for the System Builder Marathon article, but with the motherboard/CPU mismatch, I going with this one instead. Thanks.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gbrD

Anything I should be on the lookout for when making the purchase (or doing the assembly)? I've built systems before, but it has been about 10 years! And the last time I did, I could walk the parts back to Fry's if there was a problem. Are Newegg and NCIX easy to deal with?

OK so let me go through each build

1. Works for me. Not the way I would do it, but it's solid.

2. Still with the Llano :p  let me just show you how to do this:
  • SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner SATA Model SH-222BB/BEBE - OEM
  • SAMSUNG Spinpoint F4 HD322GJ/U 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
  • SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (11192-22-20G)
  • AMD Free WinZip Pro 16 Coupon

  • Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
  • Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC "Compatible with Core ...
  • Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Intel Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge 2.9GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623G850
  • ASRock H61M/U3S3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
    TOTAL: $499.90

    See how we get everything for under 500? MUCH stronger CPU and a board with USB 3.

    For an HTPC build something like one of the Antec cases (with PSU)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...



    3. Pretty good.

    4. At some point you need to look closer at the MB-case fusion. An upgradeable computer should have SATA 6GB/s and front USB 3 ports in my opinion. $600 or so is the point I would start including that. I also feel that you need to try to dial back the CPU to an i3 and improve the GPU. I have gamed extensively with both i3 and i7... there is not much difference.

    5. Great example here. The board has internal USB 3 but the case has no ports.

    6. Pretty good.

    7. Nice.

    8. You like that case too much. Time to upgrade :) 

    Everything else is fine too.

    It's an intelligent question, but you can't really put it in those terms. Is a $30,000 automobile twice as good as a $15,000 automobile?

    Instead, you CAN ask about gaming performance per dollar spent. That doesn't take into account other features, of course.

    Take the two computers and put them side-by side. Get 20 games and play every game at a resolution of 1600x900 on low settings. You will not experience any difference in game play, in almost all of the 20 games.

    There may be some differences in some games especially strategy titles.
    Load times will be longer in the $500 computer.

    Increase the screen size to 1920x1080 and the in-game settings to a medium level, and a few more of the games will show visible differences.

    Now increase the game settings to high and 50% or more of the games will begin to struggle.

    So to answer your question, the value of any build to you must be based on your personal expectations.

    Sounds like I need to go through and see how well they would perform at 1920 x 1080 (The resolution i want to play at) on various games that I play.
