I was wondering if you guys could help me. I have picked out the parts below to build a gameing pc on a budget. I picked out all the parts from newegg and yes i know the graphic card is crossfire compatible. I may if needed later on down the road add another hd6770 but for now i hope this card will be sufficiant in running the games i want it to run. Which is were your inputs come in handy. I want to know if this is a good price versus performance pc to run the new phantasy star online 2, second life , and skyrim at decent 40 to 60 fps. Any suggestion would be welcome. Thanks in advance and for reading.

Ok ill look into that but can we please refrain from the cursing lol. I about choked on my dinner reading that wow. Do you have any thoughts on the rest of the setup sir?

Ok To prior suggestion i have changed the the graphics card and computer case to keep below or at 600$.

Please give you input on the setup such as if it could play the afformentioned games. An price versus performance ratio.

So that i can change or start ordering parts.

Thanks.

There are certain parts you can cheap out on if you don't over-cheap. For instance you can get a nice mobo for like 50 and then get a less fancy case or something. With that you could get like a 7770 or so. Which is a bit better then a 560 TI

PSU's pretty bad. You're spending too much on storage in my opinion. At this point, you don't need an SSD. One main storage with an HDD is fine. You can always try SSD caching solution to speed up the HDD later and you'd be using your budget where it matters which is your graphics for games.

Check out my $650 build here:

If you drop the 7870 down to the 7850 you'll get a total of $570. You'll have a better CPU, MUCH BETTER GPU, and a much better PSU.

Ok Thank aznshinobi That link was pretty informative helped alot. I think this has been solved thanks to you . My only question is the power supply its 520W Are you sure that can handle the wattage output of everything together. Why is it that much better than the 775W? I have never been good with psu for some reason. Other than that i think i am going to build the 570$ machine.

Yep more than capable. The FX-6300 is going be about 95w, then the 7850 has a TDP of 130w give or take about 10-20w depending on the heatsink. Total you're looking at about 225w on load from the most power consuming parts in the build. HDD + Peripherals and SYstem will only be about 50w and that's a lot of headroom, you're looking at about only 275 which is more than enough for the Neo Eco to handle.

The Diablotek 775w can output that much, possibly, but Diablotek has never had a nack for making very reliable power supplies and for that matter efficient ones.
