Making my first PC this weekend. Made a list of parts, some with options between high and low end. I still want a really good gaming PC, and I already cut down the max price from $2,687 to $1,864, but I want to get it low as possible while still being able to run pretty much any game on high. Specs are:
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X 16GB - $88 CPU: Intel i7 3770 or 3770K (don't tell me to cut this one) - $300/$330 GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 (don't tell me to cut this one either) - $470 Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77 - $200 PSU: Corsair HX750 - $130 Case: Cooler Master HAF X - $180 SSD: ADATA 6510 or Intel 330 Series - $105/$160 Monitor: ASUS VS248H - $200 Keyboard: Logitech MK120 - $17 Mouse: V7 M30P10 - $10 HDD: Seagate Barracuda - $80
Any replacements non-CPU or GPU that I can cut down?
Get a case that only costs half what yours does.
By the way, full prices now are: Low: $1,779 High: $1,924 (added a thermaltake frio overclocking ready fan)
