Hello, Hey guys I want to build a PC for my little bro. He is mainly going to use it for WoW and Guild Wars 2. I put together this build but dont know much about building PCs. I have a GTX 550ti and a PSU already so I dont need those. This build is around $480. Thanks for any help and advice.
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
ASUS P8H77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
I also put an AMD Build together and it came out to $470. Let me know what you guys think
i hate to say this... amd 4100 is old zambezi architecture, newer version is 4300 and 6300. even both of them if OCed couldnt match any i5 ivy bridge cpu
sorry AMD company, i love 8350 but not anything lower than it
ok thanks ill stick to the Intel build then. Ill just buy a 600W that I put in my PC. But other than that this build is ok for gaming will it even run games like BF3 and Crysis on medium settings on 720p resolution?
it really depends on your GPU which is 550 ti. i5 will not limit any of its performance. i sugeest you to try it first with 550 ti. if you arent satisfied, then you need more powerful GPU, 7870 will do
I dont think Ill be able to get the i5. But how will it run with the i3-3220 run with the GTX 550ti. I had the GTX550ti with the i7-2600 on my PC and it ran BF3 on high at 720p so will it run as well with the i3? Thanks for all the help by the way/
i believe you can afford it, you can always cheap out on mobo to a medium class but keep good quality.
