Okay, here I go. Gaming computer to play Guild Wars 2, Starcraft 2, Dota 2.

No Photoshop/Video editing/Streaming etc.

Some internet surfing, watching videos.

Don't want max-max-crazy-omg quality/resolution when playing games.
Mid-High requirement games with Mid-High resolution/graphics quality, as long as there is no lag or frame drops.



Parts from www.pricespy.co.nz, all parts in $NZD

CPU - Intel Core i3 2120 3.3GHz Socket 1155 Box - $163.79

MOBO - ASRock B75 Pro3 - $102.59

GPU - Gigabyte Radeon HD7850 OC HDMI Dual-DisplayPort 2GB - $351

RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz, CL9 8GB 2X4GB - $91

CASE - Antec Three Hundred Two (Black) - $91

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200RPM 16MB 500GB - $90

CD/DVD Drive - LG GH24NS90 - $30

PSU - Antec High Current Gamer HCG-620M 620W - $119

OR Antec TruePower New Series 550W - $69

SDD- ?

TOTAL = $NZD 1038.38

Planning to build in the next two weeks.

Any constructive criticisms?

CPU - Go for an i5 3570K (It's the best processor for gaming)
Mobo - Go for a Z77 board - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GPU - Go for the 7850 Sapphire Version - http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=1355665

Everything else looks good to me. :)

Low budget you see... that why I had to choose an i3.... though I may change my mind.

And I wont be overclocking so i thought I should go with an H77 or B75..

Why Sapphire? Is it better than the Gigabyte?

Following those facts (No OC, Low budget)

Any other suggestions?
