Hi all. I'm looking into building a new system. I've done a pile of research and I figured I would get the advice of some other people with more experience than me. I am looking at building a budget gaming build for under $700. All the parts will be purchased off NewEgg because I love them. I've for the moment decided on an AMD purely because they are more bang for the buck. I'm not against Intel, but I'm not willing to spend much more than what is already there. This is what I'm currently looking at.
MOBO- ASRock 770i Cafe
GPU- MSI R7850
PSU-RaidMax Hybrid 2 RX-630 (630 watt)
HDD- WD 5000AX (500GB)
RAM-Kingston HyperX 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
DVD Drive- MSI IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DH-18DP
That current price is $670.
Please, I don't want this to turn into a fanboy convention. I chose AMD because of the value. If intel makes a cpu with a similar price that will produce similar FPS on games, let me know. I'm open to any ideas.
Id seriously recommend you upgrade your monitor first. I mean a 7850 at 1280x1024, lol, that's like having a ZL1 Camaro with bicycle tires, you'll never even be able to hit the gas without blowing up the tires.
lol actually what was posted above me is a very decent gaming system, although many people crap at stuff on amd but a real fact is they are usable and can still play games ^_^ but still this system above is a very good system, I do suggest the one posted above. also basing the fact that TS wanted an amd rig.
and yes I do agree that the 6100 would perform well
