After 4 years my pc is starting to kick the bucket. It's my first gaming rig I have ever built.

Now it's time for the 2nd computer rig. I am hoping to use some of the older parts from the PC I'm currently using to save $$$ as I will be moving and don't have alot of financial space to work with. Keep in mind everything will be upgraded but for now some parts will have to be recycled from the current pc.

Power Supply: Thermaltake W0106RU 700W Complies with ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V version SLI Certified 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply (OLD PC PART) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE GV-N650OC-1GI GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive: ST3300831SCE Seagate DB35 Series Hard Drive ST3300831SCE (Just purchased) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00636VVP8/ref=oh_deta...

DVD-ROM: ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-2014L1T LightScribe Support (OLD PC) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So will all the components work together, and is it a good build?

IMO 650's are kinda krap. I'd go for a 7770-7850, but thats just me.

Current Parts I have as listed above:

Power Supply
Hard Drive
DVD-ROM

Current parts I need to buy:

Graphics card
Motherboard
Processor
RAM

They all must work together, be pretty decent within a budget of $550 (tax included) for the new parts. I prefer Intel i5 & nvidia.

it's not a hard drive, its a solid state drive. which is basically like a hard drive but at least 500x faster. so put your operating system on it, you boot in 5 seconds. put a game on it, launch in 1 second, loading screens are 2 seconds. etc.

You know I really hate to be rude but DO YOU ******* KNOW HOW TO SPEAK ENGLISH? EVERYTHING I'VE EVER SEEN YOU POST LOOKS LIKE A 3 YEAR OLD WROTE IT. You can't be from anywhere that speaks english natively, or I'll suicide all over the place. i5 > xeon for gaming, IMO. -.-

zed ty for the build, im going to use it :) . Now I have a tower that is huge. Here is my current one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I cannot be lugging that thing around at the airport for hours and then put it on the airplane then transport it to my new place across the usa. Can you find me a nice case that isnt heavy but decent, not very expensive, durable?

I did just realize I forgot to include PSU in that build OP. knock the 7850 down to a 7770 and grab a CX600.

if better MoBo goes in your price range take a Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V


The Xeon is a bit of an odd choice..
It has the power of an 3770, yet it's about 100$ cheaper. However, for gaming, it's probably the same as the 3770, and it lacks the overclocking.

For productivity and content creation, it would be a great choice.
