First Time Build Advice Tags: Build Amazon Systems Product Last response: November 15, 2012 2:50 AM in Systems Share Anonymous November 12, 2012 12:23:10 AM First time builder here. I would like some advice on my $800 PC Build. Here is what I have so far. I am buying all parts from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3QCMNHETZBXS... More about : time build advice Reply to Anonymous lt_dan_zsu November 12, 2012 12:48:21 AM it looks good to me, but you should check those parts on newegg as well, because there are some better deals. If you get that 7950 from newegg for example. You will get 3 games for free with it. Reply to lt_dan_zsu Anonymous November 12, 2012 12:50:26 AM Newegg charges me $90 tax. Not sure if it's worth it.

Also even if they did charge tax, it would still technically be worth it. http://secure.newegg.com/Shopping/ShoppingCart.aspx Reply to lt_dan_zsu Anonymous November 12, 2012 1:12:02 AM It ends up being way over the Amazon cost of $829.08. I guess it could be worth it, if I actually wanted the three free games, but I don't. http://prntscr.com/jiydc Reply to Anonymous lt_dan_zsu November 12, 2012 3:50:37 AM Well, I was saying some parts are cheaper on newegg. I go to multiple places to buy products. Like, why not just get the gpu from newegg, unless you have some weird buy in bulk special, but If not I don't see why you wouldn't. Reply to lt_dan_zsu Anonymous November 12, 2012 4:04:53 AM May do that, anyone else want to put an input on my build? Reply to Anonymous cutebeans November 12, 2012 4:22:59 AM Go to pcpartpicker.com Reply to cutebeans Anonymous November 14, 2012 12:39:22 AM Will do. Does anyone else care to give me their input on how well I did on picking out the parts? I just want to be sure that they are compatible and will work well together before i purchase.

Reply to cutebeans Anonymous November 15, 2012 2:04:24 AM No, this is my first build. I don't think I'm going to attempt to overclock right away. Can you explain what is wrong with the case and make a recommendation? Reply to Anonymous cutebeans November 15, 2012 2:06:44 AM It's a cheap case which doesn't even have 3.0. Normally, I would recommend it but only on budget builds. You can get a NZXT Elite 210 or NZXT 220 which are more expensive but better in most aspects. You won't be able to overclock it with an H77 board. You need is z75 or z77.

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-11-14 23:13 EST-0500) It should more or less be like this! NEVER GET COOLERMASTER PSU especially the one you chose. It's the worst PSU ever, it is prone to fail and take other parts with it. The Op drive, PCpartpicker is having problems and the $28 drive is the cheapest. Reply to cutebeans lt_dan_zsu November 15, 2012 2:15:28 AM I would get the 7950 from newegg, because it comes with 3 free games.

I thought it was an initiative of AMD so that all retailers would have it. Weird. Reply to cutebeans Anonymous November 15, 2012 2:23:15 AM Updated. Opinions now? Reply to Anonymous cutebeans November 15, 2012 2:30:21 AM Yes, it's pretty nice now. Although does it have the 3 games free promo lke in newegg? Reply to cutebeans lt_dan_zsu November 15, 2012 2:37:41 AM I, though it would, but I have seen no promos on amazon. They don't have it listed last time I checked Reply to lt_dan_zsu Anonymous November 15, 2012 2:38:37 AM I may just buy the graphics card from Newegg, and everything else from Amazon. It doesn't appear that Amazon has the deal. Reply to Anonymous cutebeans November 15, 2012 2:50:02 AM Yes! Nice. Good luck bro!
