motherboard (100$) - ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

hdd (70$) - Western Digital WD AV-GP WD5000AUDX 500GB IntelliPower 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

memory (40$) - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Graphics card (115$) - EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CPU (130$) - Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i33220

optical drive (20$) - MSI 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DH-18DP

Power supply (75$) - Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-550 550W Continuous @ 50°C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active - PFC Power Supply

Monitor (160$) - ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI


:)  i would like to know if theese computer parts are compatible with each other, and also what fans/heatsinks i should look for. By the way i plan to buy theese things from newegg, so any information about getting better/cheaper alternitaves would be much appreciated.

They're compatible but that's not really a good system. There's no point in a GTX 550TI anymore when you can get a Radeon 7770 or 7850 and they're way better cards around the same price range. B75 is incredibly limiting in terms of future expansion. What is your budget? I can suggest a better system if I knew that.

If you can get it i would suggest the 922 cooler master over the 912 for the front 3.0 usb hook ups. About another 40 bucks but better i think.

G-unit seems there total cost is $770 with the monitor without $610 without and i do not see an os. So looks like a tough build. If the max budget is given i agree you can do better then the cost of that build. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jIlh That build there would be about as good. But i would only recommend the a10-5800k if you are on a real low budget (under 500-600) and even then i would upgrade parts in the build i suggest (the case mainly.

A 922 cooler master case would raise the cost of $487.50 up to about $550. But if it is intel all the way then the costs will be a bit higher. If i could stretch a build to include a great discrete gpu and an i5 quad cpu that of course would be the best case. Butthe a10-5800k is not a bad cpu and is comparable to the i3 cpus (although the i3 still kicks the 5800k in single threaded applications) But with the fm2 socket 5800k you do have some future upgrade possibilities. So a tough call really.

Yeah it's a very tight budget to work with especially monitor included but it can be done. But don't spend the money for the HAF 922 on that tight of a budget. Then you have to cut corners elsewhere. Put that in the GPU - that's where it counts.

Try something like this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 EXTREME4 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($107.86 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($205.98 @ Newegg)
Case: Antec One ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($51.98 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($22.98 @ Newegg)
Total: $638.76
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Then add amonitor and you're good to go.

G-unit111, spend a little bit more to get an A10 - if you disable the integrated GPU, you get one hell of a headroom for overclocking.

Why would you get an APU for a gaming rig? What advantages does Trinity have over the Phenom to make it worth the extra cost?

My budget is 800 - 1000 $ at max, monitor included.

It compares to an i3 3220 in most benchmarks and in many others it beats it in all but single threaded apps. And the higher the memory clock the better it performs. And it uses the new fm2 socket so some room for an upgrade later if need be. So it will do better then a phenom if you can fit it into a build. Plus the built in 7660 is just icing on the cake. Not a bad cpu for a low budget build.

No it isn't - I shall investigate this further.

Just a few reviews to get you started. Almost all of them compare it to the 3220 or say it is better in all but single threaded apps. And the inconsistency i have seen in the reviews seems to be because they are using lower clocked ram with it in its comparison.
