i am trying to make a good value for dollar gaming PC .

i am not sure about the ram should i go 1600? reading about ram is quite confusing as compared to others

and for SSD , is there a good one i should get or just wait until it becomes cheaper?

was thinking to getting 1 60gb SSD , pretty much good enough to hold OS ?

is my power supply enough?

  1. Drop the H100 if you want to keep costs down, a hyper 212+ Evo will suffice.

    SSD: nothing on sale right, Samsung 830 series SSDs are nice.

    RAM: Go 1600Mhz, 4gb and 8gb kits are dirt cheap

    And PSU is enough.
  2. Your psu is enough. get a 7870, same price, more powerful. Just go with 1600, it performs just as well, and you can overclock if you want. For the mobo, if the wifi version is more than $10, then don't get it, then get edimax nano adapter.
  3. Thanks for the replies


    hyper 212+ Evo seems cheaper too :)

    7870 HOW DID I MISS IT!!! thanks man! :o
  4. for the gpu 7870

    MSI HD7870 Hawk 2GB vs Sapphire HD7870 OC 2GB

    MSI HD7870 Hawk 2GB is cheaper then Sapphire HD7870 OC 2GB

    i am looking for difference i don't think OC is the reason
  5. sapphire one has a slighlty higher memory clock.
  6. liquid cooler for budget pc ? well whatever rocks your boat

    VS
    MSI HD7870 2GB HAWK O.C DDR5

    According to GPUreview

    specs wise MSI HD7870 2GB HAWK O.C DDR5 = SAPPHIRE HD7870 2GB DDR5 O.C
