i want to get thhings as cheap as possible. the main use is gaming (id you want to now witch games here is one title: crysis 3)
this is what i got so far:

amd fx 8320 165.99
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3,sAM3+ 83.99
Corsair Vengeance DDR3,1600-8GB 44.99 (low profile)

  1. See if the i5-3470 is cheaper than the fx-8320, and check for a h77 mobo if it's cheaper than the am3+ one, the i5 is better for gaming, if the intel cpu+mobo is cheaper, i'd get the i5.
  2. i can't get combo's on mycom.be or mycom.nl the fx 8320 is 18€ cheaper then the 3470
  3. Well then stay with your current cpu, if you need to cut the prices, you can get the FX-6300 for less.
    Also a 660 gtx will have about the same performance if you need to lower the total budget down(usually they're cheaper than the 7870)
    Also i recommend going with a better ssd, like than sandisk extreme 120GB.

    I put this on another thread, see if it checks out - you can definitely go Intel on your budget, you may have to leave out the SSD but you can always add one in later:

    Case: Corsair Carbide 200R - € 59,90
    PSU: Corsair CX600 V2 - € 64,90
    Motherboard: Asrock H77 Pro 4/MVP - € 77,90
    CPU: 3.2GHz Intel Core i5-3470 - € 179,90
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 1.5V - €47,49
    HD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue - € 67,90
    Optical: LG GH24NS70 12X DVD Burner - € 16,99
    Video Card: XFX Double Dissipation Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition - € 217,90

    Total: € 742,83

    this is the only one that is cheaper but it doesn't look like it that it has some good cooler there is also an twin frozer 2 on for the same price
  6. my friend likes the ssd the most so if it is going to cost too much then he is going to add an hdd later (his pc that he uses now only has a 100gb hdd so not a big change)

    The bad thing is the somewhat limited capacity of SSDs won't leave you much room after OS and Windows / application install.

    i have windows 7 running on 1 80 gb hdd and i still have 30gb free after installing ms office pro plus 5 games (all are about 4gb) a lot of programs and stuff so it isn't impossible and if he adds one like 3 month after it he will be more then fine
  9. Changed the 8320 for an 6300 (136.99) or would i get the 8120 for 148.99
    and the ssd is now a 840 250gb (159.99€)

    thanks for the help
  10. Don't get the FX-8120, get the FX-6300 from piledriver architecture, the fx-8120 is older and it has less performance vs the fx-6300.
    Instead of spend on a 250GB, get a better card like the 7950, and a ssd with mlc nand, which is better, the samsung 840 is a low cost ssd for causal consumers, get a ssd with 120/128GB, the sandisk extreme is really cheap on europe...

    his parents don't want that he buy his whole pc from the internet so i'm limited to those stores
    or codima but almost evrything costs more there

    The get the sandisk, it's a good deal.
    If you can get the 7950, get it, the alternative is the 660 ti, it's still better than the 7870.
    If not, get a 7870 and save the rest.
  16. well do u got the name of the store u buying from, it would help.
  17. iceclock said:

    yes mycom.nl or mycom.be (the be one is way closer only 20minutes away from me)
  18. djangoringo said:
    Here's the 660 ti : http://www.mycom.be/evga-geforce-gtx660-ti-2gb.html

    With the sandisk extreme 128GB, the rest can go for that card.

    i found a 7950 for 280€ in mycom.nl in a store that is like 30 minutes driveing from here
  19. Then get the 7950.
    But the 660 ti is still cheaper : http://www.mycom.nl/Product/Beeld-Videokaart/EVGA-GTX-660-Ti,2GB/1364337
  20. i think i 'm going to buy the parts in Nerderland because for the same build i pay like 750€ with the 7950
  21. monitor:120$

    speakers:30$

    http://www.mycom.be/trust-speaker-soundforce-2-1.html?___SID=U

    full price with monitor and speakers:858 euros :)
  22. got a website for the netherlands u wanna order from?

    if its cheaper whynot go to netherlands.
  23. must of beena typo :P

  25. iceclock said:

  26. well if u can get the build i made cheaper whynot.
  27. iceclock said:
    well if u can get the build i made cheaper whynot.

    i would just go with the 7950 or the 7870 (same price) that is pretty wierd cause they are like the same stores only like 50 km from each other

    is the crsair cx 600 watt good enough to power that system (future pc overclocking when he has the money for a cooler)
  31. Of course it is, even for a 680 gtx or 7970.

    that saves me an extra 15€
  33. its an ok powersupply but i gave u a better quality ps, id go with my pick jalison if u want quality theres only one cx powersupply i recommand is the cx430 and was an older design, the new cx series includes the 500-600s are of poor build quality and arent as good as the 400 series.

    the monito and speakers are going to be bought from another store there is the extra 150€ for
    800€ max on the pc
    around 150€ for other things like a screen (he gets a keyboard an mouse from me that i don't use anymore)
  35. well the build i made was 803$ :D

    the problem is you psu link doesn't work it gives me 404 not found if you can give me the name of it then i can search the for it
  37. iceclock said:

    it's 3€ to much :p
  38. The CX600 is fine, i recommended three ones, either of those psus are good, either the GS, CX.
    That price doesn't include ssd...
  39. he can get an ssd later.

    quality over quantity my friend.

    You're done.
