This is my first build and i want to build an OK gaming desktop. My Budget is $2500 and I don't know much about PC but I do understand a bit.
My build's specs so far are:
CPU- Intel® Core™ i7-3770T Processor
Motherboard- Asus Sabertooth Z77
GPU- Nvidia Geforce GTX 670
Sound Card- Asus Xonar Essence STX
Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
Disk Drive- Asus BW-12B1ST
Network Card- Edimax PCI 300Mbps Wireless 802.11n Network Card EW-7722IN
Memory- 16gb AMD Radeon Edition DD3R
I do not have a power supply yet because i dont know how much power it requires and dont have a case because i dont know what will fit. I also am thinking about having SSD and HDD but it might work out to expensive.
Also if you know of something that i can get that works the same but is a bit cheaper please tell me.
Help would be much appreciated.
Total: about $1342 after rebates and promo codes. I like biostar boards; they have fewer ram issues, and good automatic overclocking software in the bios. Always use the bios for overclocking, not the windows software.
Just throwing it out there. With $2500, you can get some pretty high-end parts although not all of the parts I put below are well thought-out. Depending on your primary usage, parts needed and preferred, a couple things could be swap out.
