Hey. I would very much appreciate any advice on a new build I will be purchasing as I am pretty much a noob. It will be used for playing poker plus maybe some occasional gaming (but nothing too fancy). I can probably cut down on some of this stuff, but I have some money to spare and I would like to get a pretty good machine. This stuff is 835euro in my country, I could go up to 100euro more (counted 50 more for memory).
Anything that I am missing (maybe some extra cooling needed)? Anything incompatible?
I won't be buying parts from newegg fwiw, just linking from there for ease.
the HD4000 on the CPU is good enough for poker/desktop use and very basic games at low settings/resolutions. Not at 1080p though Any idea what games?
The HD7850 would be a good card for modern games at high settings, and is really as low as I would personally go. Going from an i7 to an i5 should save you that much, and it would be a huge difference in games.
Again though, kinds depends if we are talking big game hunter/flight Sims/counterstrike or battlefield 3/skyrim/crysis
