Last response: in Systems

Want a "most bang for your buck" build, as of right now I'd only play WoW on it, nothing too heavy on graphics.

Approximate Purchase Date: By Black Friday, sooner if there's no reason to wait on any sales.

Budget Range: ($900) before rebates and shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Gaming, surfing the internet, movies)

Are you buying a monitor: Yes but the $900 budget is before the monitor. Willing to spend $200 max on a monitor but preferably cheaper if anyone has any ideas.

Parts to Upgrade: Starting from scratch

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Hammond, Indiana

Parts Preferences: none, whatever is best
Overclocking: Depends how easy it is and how safe it is on the computer

SLI or Crossfire: no

Your Monitor Resolution: No monitor

Additional Comments: Not be annoying loud, and depending on the extra cost, I'd like it to be cool looking.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Old computer broke and was terrible anyways.

No overclocking, but good CPU, PSU, and I have to admit 'cool looking' for a case is an objective thing. You could probably find a case for a similar price that looks cool to you if you don't like the one I put on the list there.

$910 before rebates, $845 after. You could potentially get a 7870 rather than a 7850, if you can afford a little bit more, but this should handle what you're looking for. Granted, I'm not familiar with how loud it is, but if you want it to be quieter, try looking up a Fractal PC case.

Check out my $850 build here:
Swap the i5 3570K with the i5 3450 (-$25):
Swap the Asrock Extreme3 Z77 with the Asrock B75M (-$60):
Total: $760

Windows 8 OS $99:
Windows 7 OS $91:

You'll be well in your budget and a pretty solid well rounded build.

^ Attacking other members, learn some respect. You say pretty much everyone elses builds are complete crap, why don't you actually look at them. Half of the time, you have the same exact parts as them,

Others copy my builds not the other way around as all my builds are from scratch based on a users needs. I look at everyone's builds thoroughly ( i even checked out your crap blog) and comment objectively no matter what.

Respect is earned, not given; remember that sonny ;D

Get off your high horse. Most of us have been recommending builds much longer than you have and as such suggested builds that you just copy off of as well. There is only so many products and so little variants, most of the parts you are just different companies from my build guides, so why don't you just sit down. You use most of the parts that are in my blog and its been there longer than you've been on the forums.

I just don't stick it on PCPartPicker, woop de doo for you. I'm glad you can do that and lie to people about the actual price before rebates.
