LF Advice building new computer

December 29, 2012 6:38:45 AM

Giving my old computer to my bro and will start to build the new one. Basicly I just take my GTX 560 Ti and my HDD. So I just save at least around $360 or so for the new computer.

Approximate Purchase Date: January 2013

Budget Range: $500 can't be more than that

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video editing

Are you buying a monitor: No, I have two monitors already.

Parts to Upgrade: (e.g.: CPU, mobo, RAM) :
-intel i5 3470 6M Cache,up to 3.60 GHz intel LGA 1155 - ~$180. I think this is the good deal for IB, old computer procie is 2100 so it's decent upgrade right?
-Mobo : ASRock H61M-U3S3 intel Socket 1155
ASRock H77M (LGA 1155, Intel H77, DDR3, USB3, SATA3) , ~$80, any better choice other than this?
-Memory : Corsair CMX4GX3M1A1333C9 (1x4Gb) x 2. $50, looking for the same model on the old computer, no big deal in here.
-PSU : Seasonic ECO-600 600W $70, is this good to power up this spec? (i5 3470 with GTX 560Ti?)
-Casing : Infinity Infinity 411 No PSU $30
-VGA : GTX 560Ti
-HDD : 2 TB Hitachi and 1 TB Seagate
Do you need to buy OS: No, I'm taking my HDD, don't need one.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: local website, They can send me most of the item in 1 day. But you can give me any parts on other sites such as neweggs etc, I might look it up on my local website.

Location: Indonesia

Parts Preferences: Intel, Corsair memory, think I'm fine as it is because it's cheap and solid

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Remember I take my old GTX 560Ti so the new PSU must have 2 x 6 pin. Budget for PSU around $70 if I calculate that right or I will just simply use a basic case to reduce the $.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Tired of seeing my bro playing game at his laptop, he already broke 1 laptop already just for playing game 2 years. So I think that laptop wont last long
