I'm needing to build a gaming computer for my living room, monitor will be my 55" led. Mainly used for WoW and CoD Black Ops 2. Want something with lots of ram and that won't need updated for a while. Also have one stipulation, that it be in a smaller tower like a shuttle or something similar. Have lack of space in the tv stand but want to maybe go to a sli setup later. All and any thoughts and help are greatly appreciated. Also looking for a very good wifi signal extender, what brands do you suggest?
At 750 you'll probably want to go for a gtx660 and an i5-3570K. That'll be most of the budget, but you should be able to put the rest together with what's left. You can't really go wrong with these two.
Save money and still get some pretty solid performance. The FX-6300 is a great chip and for what you stated you wanted to do it'll be perfectly fine. The 7870 is a great card, much better than that of the 7770 and will be fine for any modern game at 1080P max settings with no AA/AF. So it'll be solid, all with a small form factor.
CoolMax is a good PSU vendor, in that price range I've never had any problems ( I've bought well over 10 of them for builds. ) The PSU is not a make or break deal though, changing it out for another would be easy and wouldnt go over budget.
"The Coolmax V-500 is a piece of junk. We could only pull around 330W from it. Above that it burned." - Hardware Secrets
"The Coolmax V-500 is a textbook example of why you should not buy a USD 20 power supply. Its inability of delivering its labeled wattage is not its worst problem. It presents lousy efficiency... its voltages are out of range, and noise and ripple levels are above maximum allowed. A perfect weapon of mass destruction. Stay away. " -Hardware Secrets
Hardware Secrets is one of my most trusted reviewers as they put the tested power supplies through a rigorous test. Even though the system above might not pull that wattage, I'd still like to turn on my computer knowing that it won't explode that day, and take my components with it.
