I can't decide which one to choose.I use my PC for hardcore gaming and I want it to last.(Battlefield 3 atm,Crysis 2,Skyrim,Shogun 2...)
CPU: FX 8350 or equivalent Intel CPU-252.17$ for FX
MOBO: I have no idea
GPU: HD 7850(Can get it really cheap) or GTX 660-241.81$ for the HD 7850
Power: I have no idea
Case: I have no idea
HDD: Planning on using the same HDD

After those 2 excluded from the budget I'm left with 556,02 $ for Mobo,Case and power supply and possible CPU/GPU changes

Shopping from where ?...and that's not hardcore at all, you need a much better gpu, and an i5-3570k is recommended.

You could get then an i5-3470+h77 mobo.
For the psu a decent one with 550w-650w from corsair,antec, xfx,seasonic,fsp,rosewill, pc power & cooling.
For a card get either the 670 gtx(nvidia) or 7970(amd), if you need a bit cheaper get the 660 ti.
Get a decent case like the antec HAF 912 or similar.

7970 is only 20$ expensive then 7950 so il put 7970 instead of 7950

Is there a website for the parts ? we could use google translate
But what i just said, it pretty covers everything you need.
January 4, 2013 9:19:01 PM

not sure how that would translate to USD. but if your budget is $1000 and you paying $250 for the cpu that sounds about right. but going from a 7850 to a 7970 is a big jump.

But if he doesn't want to oc, it's better to look out for an i5-3470, i bet even in croatia the price will be much lower, and also a h77 mobo i can bet it will be cheaper than any z77.
It leaves probably even a good margin for the high end card+good case+quality psu+ssd.

January 4, 2013 9:54:04 PM

I can get 2 7850 for the price of single 7970 is it any good or would I be better with 7970 anf xfire it later if needed
January 4, 2013 10:00:24 PM

I was expecting mz budget will be short for my needs so I will go with 7970
