New build around 600$ to 700$

I could use some help picking parts, could somebody please recommend a build based on my preferences?


Budget Range: $600 to $700.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Microsoft word, learn programming.

Are you buying a monitor: no

Do you need to buy OS: No


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I would prefer the parts to be from newegg there having a bunch of sales because of black Friday and cyber Monday.

Location: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences: i would like either an ivy brige i5, or an FX 8320. i would like either the GTX 650 Ti or GTX 660, budget permitting.

Overclocking: Possibly, budget permitting.

SLI or Crossfire: No.(Maybe in the future)

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 by 1080

Additional Comments: I would prefer for it to have a wireless card but I'm not sure I do not have a problem with using an Ethernet cable if its not with in the budget.

Why I Am Upgrading: New experience and I need a new computer so I figure I'll build it myself.

I will also be looking to upgrade in the near future I will not be needing a lot of space because I'm not looking to SLI or Crossfire so I could go with a smaller case but I still want the motherboard to be ATX. I would like to be playing most games on high settings like borderlands 2, Counter strike Go, and other games like guild wars 2.
Thanks in advance. :D

    No it does not fit for what hes asking!!!He also said a 660 not 7850 get your facts straight!
  6. He just wants it from newegg because it's cheaper. :) I think he would not have any problems from other stores as long as it is cheaper.

    Yeah, didn't see the 660 only saw the 650ti.

    It's still a good build though.
  7. I think your build is good for his budget if he will go for it :)
  8. Yours too was nice :).
