Right now my motherboard is a narra3 with a phenom benchmarked at 2250
I just want a cpu+motherboard capable of playing games like blizzard ones without any issue
get a 990fx ud3 with a 8350
or a intel i5 3470 with an z77 ud3
I would but im trying to buy from my work as I get a little discount aswell avoid shipping/credit cards while getting instore warrenty
the best I got here is the 8120 am or Intel 2nd Gen Core i5-2550K which the intel is a bit out of my budget.
However I just wanting to play these blizzard games flawlessly on any setting basically
is there a website for the store?
I like amd however the eight core seems a little ridiculous and to me may not be ideal for gaming but more so for business.
However those are just my thoughts. If itll preform well or if you can find others there than that would be fantastic
ahh a Canadian then eh
Depending if you live in Toronto or Vancouver, NCIX.com has storefront locations there
The futureshiop i3 2120 with a h61 board will be a good budget match for your 650ti
I don't but live seven hours from vancouver
I checked their site the main difference would be id have to pay for any warranties as if I got it from futureshop theres 3year warranty with labour which is nice, but yeah sometimes being Canadian is a pain lol
Hmm I don't like the low benchmark of the 3350, Its not to big of a deal as of now for overclocking so if the 3570k will work with that 60$ board then ill do that, and when oc becomes an issue I can upgrade the motherboard then.
Does that setup sound good however? i5 3570k Gigabyte ga- h61m-s2pv Ram unknown Gpu 650ti gefore 520 power supply.
I mean my games play well right now with a narra3 motherboard with a phenom benchmarked a 2k with the powersupply and gpu
I just don't want to buy crappy stuff :P
Will the motherboard downclock the gpu or cpu?
the build looks good.
Should I spend the extra 405$ for a cheap z77. I've read the h61 may not be compatible without an bios update
That's my last question. :O sorry
the z77 allows overclocking and ssd caching. if u can afford whynot.
whats ur choice of boards?
it was the h61 for 60$ basic two ram slots etc Or z77 Gigabyte MVP ATX Motherboard (GA-Z77M-D3H)
My total would be 435$ 30 dollars more than my first build but seems to be drastically better
The low end z77 boards should let you reach 4.0ghz+ without issue and it does give you pcie 3.0 and sata 6gb/s and intel SRT and USB 3
the mvp looks good.
Okay thanks that prefect
Just to end the topic now I'm buying this tomorrow I5 3570k Z77 low end 8gb corsair ram To add to my 650 ti GeForce 520watt power supply
My cost will be 430 after tax - looks like best setup for your money IMO
