Looking for some help on a value for money system.
This system is just for Gaming, Internet & Downloading.
From what i have read the Intel smash AMD but for gaming and value for money purpose they will more then do the job?
I am on a budget - recently married and saving for a house.
I need help selecting a video card - I don't expect to be playing BF3 on Ultra but i would like high, I have seen youtube videos on 550Ti's playing on high with no problems and they are only $118 or do i look for somthing in the new gen AMD card's?
Looking to spend around $800/$900 - GAMES I PLAY: (CS GO, D3, WOW, BF3, DAYZ, SC2)
The 5 series prices are coming down now that the 6 series is hitting the market. A 560 should suit your needs for less than ~$150. If you want to spend less, try a 550ti. If you can fit it in your budget, a 560ti would be better than either.
Also I'd go with the antec 520w it's way better than the corsair cx500.
antec neo eco 520w http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7997
The antec 520w doesn't come with a cord but if you have an old psu you can use it's cord or just buy one for like $5.
if you have a local micro center the 3540 is 150.00 the 3570k is a little more. the msi g45 micro atx is 100.00 with rebate right now on new egg. i would toss in a 128g ssd os boot drive (running about 80-100) online right now.
