Solved

Would appreciate some help/advice on new build. :)

So its time I built a new gaming computer and I could use your guy's help. My budget it 1000 and I am currently at 1070. Id like to shave off a little more money if I can. Here is the build.

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146068

Hard Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127696

PSU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428

MOBO- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

So I was thinking what to do and i noticed the mobo came with some free RAM, if you think the ram is good enough then I can get rid of the G-skill and shave 40 bucks off which would be good enough. Here is the ram the MOBO comes with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220558

Also I just wanted to know if everything is compatible. And which GPU do you think I should go with I was stuck between these two

The MSI has better stats but I feel like evga is more reliable. Thanks in advance for the help.

  1. Best answer
    Don't get the WD Black. Save $20-$30 and get the Blue.
    The RAM that comes w/ the mobo looks good.
    All compatible, but too big of a PSU. All you need is 600-650w.

    I'd get the MSI. EVGA is good, but the MSI has a lot better cooling. Both have good customer service, so I'd stick to the MSI.
  2. That build looks excellent.

    The only thing I'd change would be not to get the 660TI - for the same price the Sapphire Radeon 7950 is a far better value.
  3. Thanks for the responses so Ill just use the ram that comes with the mobo. I was actually reading a lot of comments about how MSI has bad customoer service but its not really that much of a concern for me. I was also thinking about getting the 7950 but on this benchmark it has the 660 ti higher on the list by a small amount. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html My friend also told me of some problems involving that card crashing when playing wow with direct 11 and when he switched to 9 or something it stopped crashing. I think it was a problem with the drivers but Im not sure.

    That wouldn't be a Direct X problem - it'd be a problem with the AMD Catalyst drivers, I just downloaded 12.8 last week and it makes a world of difference.
