New Gaming Desktop, will these parts work together?

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.

  1. IMO 650's are kinda krap. I'd go for a 7770-7850, but thats just me.
  2. One of these would be great :) My friend has one paired with a FX 4130 and it's pretty boss. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102993
  3. these are the parts im planning to buy. total budget for a graphics card, RAM, motherboard & CPU is $550 including tax.
  4. oh and nvidia only :D k thx.
  5. 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.
  6. DO NOT GET THAT^ WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT GET A XEON LOL. Why nVidia only? I have a 670 and love it but you can get better for the money with radeon atm
  7. always used nvidia..........<3 nvidia
  8. ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - 79.99

    HIS H785F1G2M Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - 164.99

    Kingston SSDNow V+200 KR-S3090-3H 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal 7mm Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-alone Drive) 89.99

    IS XEON TOO FAST FOR THAT PRICE???OR CAN YOU EXPAIN WHY NOT A TAKE XEON???!!!??? :pt1cable:
    ARE YOU IDIOT FOR NOT TO TAKE XEIN!!!!!

    Cmoon :D http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Xeon+E3-1230+V2+%40+3.30GHz

    that's not one of the 2,000$ xeons. its a cheapy one, ment for running servers. an i3 could kick its non existant ass at gaming if i had to guess.
  11. pssst why would i need a hard drive will my one i just bought not work?
  12. 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.
  13. i can get the SSD later, its not a necessity it would be more of a luxury
  14. trust me once you get one, it will become a necessity.
  15. Noob12 said:
    No it cant not. Its just the same as 3770 just as fast. i3 cant beat it never. Not even i5 cant. it is i7
    But only idiot says that. Because don't know better.

    can you read?

    And understand what you read?

    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. -.-

    >Fails at english
    >accuses me of not being able to read

  16. 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=N82E16811133154 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?

    get whatever you want, it all comes down to preference. don't listen to what any of us douchenozzles tell you, we're all secretly trolls.

    this is the case i used in my personaly rig. (3770k, gtx 670, 16gb ram). it was a breeze to work in, couldnt find any plastic. 100% silent even with all the fans max rpm and oem cooler.

    Go ^^ **** yourself :D

  21. I don't even know what's happening any more but i do love fignewtons.
  22. I did just realize I forgot to include PSU in that build OP. knock the 7850 down to a 7770 and grab a CX600.
  23. I never said i3 was faster than i7 you derp. I'm not a troll. I've given some good advice IMO. I'd be happy with my build sugguestions. Just sayin.

    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.
