Hi guys i need advice on what components to choose for my needs. (I only need opinions of CPU/GPU and MOBO.)
This PC will be used to play online games (MMORPGS/ Action MMO's) examples: Tera, C9, Raiderz, AION, Lineage GOD, Archlord, etc. (not demanding games)
Resolution used: 1280x720/768
Budget is limited, i'm looking for the best i can get for each dollar. (well actually euros)

Example INTEL:
Intel Pentium G860 3.00 GHz ($68)
Asrock Z77 1155 Pro4-M ($130)
Asus ENGTX550 Ti/DI/1GD5 ($110)
(total $308)

EXAMPLE AMD:
PHENOM II X4 965 BE 3.4 GHZ ($90)
Asrock 970 Extreme4 ($100)
Asus HD 6770 ($117)
(total $307)

Tell me what do you think of these builds, what would you change or make your own.
Please don't go over the money i used, at least not too much ofc :p 

Also i live in Italy on a little town so i will order the parts from internet,
sadly i don't know any good site to buy from so i will just go with ebay italy for now,
but i'm not very happy about it, if you know a site that will ship to italy for a reasonable price please let me know!

Thanks!

Forgot to say that no overclock will be done.
If no one replies i'll build the intel example i posted...
i was curious if an i3 would be better than the G860

i have a question if i get an i3 ivy bridge 3220 and use it's integrated graphic card would it be enough for the games and resolution i play?
Where can i see benchmarks of that integrated card?

please someone reply...

as seen above 1280x720/768 and mostly only for online games

if you're thinking to use iGP better get an AMD APU.
http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/46005-amd-a10-5800k-t...

Something like this:
AMD Trinity A10-5800K APU Buildin GPU HD7660D - $119.99 @ Newegg
FM2 Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H - $84.99 @ Newegg

Total: $203.99

-Look for a 1866 RAM or 2133 if you have enough $$
-A 450watts of PSU i think would be sufficient
-Look for a Micro Atx case

Then if you think its not enough, just add a 6670 video card to CF with the APU. I think this will handle most of the games you wanted at a decent resolution and with a decent price.

Awesome, this is the view of a professional i was looking for, thanks a lot, you found a perfect system for my needs and saved 100 bucks with the possibility of an upgrade (discrete card) if needed.
I already own a new case where it will fit and a 500W PSU.

About the memory i looked up that motherboard and it seems the max frequency supported is 1866.

My last concern are prices, because i found the A10-5800k at 130 euros at ebay:
http://www.ebay.it/sch/CPU-/3671/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=...

Im being forced to pay 130 euros and 10-12 euros for shipping inside my own country so 140 euros for a processor you can buy for 120 dollars and free shipping, which is really unfair...

I wonder where europeans buy components, i hope is not ebay! :(

aw lol.

i've been looking for sites to buy and i found that overclokers.co.uk ships to europe mainland, but their prices are on sterlines and with the change and expedition the prices go a bit high.

But now i found that amazon italy sends for next day for free in euros at a reasonable price :D 
i hope europeans read this :D 


Thanks!
