I have a question about my new potential build. Tags: Build Computer Systems Product Last response: January 30, 2013 10:42 AM in Systems Share Coffeedude123 January 29, 2013 11:17:51 AM I'm planning to build my 1st computer so i'm a noob at this kind of stuff. lol My build looks like -CPU Intel i5-3470 -MB- ASROCK H77 Pro 4-M micro ATX LGA1155 -Memory- Corsair Vengeance 8GB -Storage- Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive -power supply- Rosewill Hive 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply -case- Raidmax Case Cases ATX-248NWB I plan to use this computer for casual gaming of a few contemporary games. BF3, Diablo, SC2,ect. My question is, which GPU would be the best for this build, i'm willing to spend $300 sub, and are they any flaws in my current build such as a bottleneck or just a bad idea. Any advice would be help. Thank you for reading More about : question potential build tenaciousk January 29, 2013 11:27:19 AM From what i read/hear most people try to stay away from Raid max products. Some of there towers look cool but there made cheaply with bad air flow. There are not great reviews about there rebate services either. Everything you picked out seems ok. if i were you i would go with the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... With the rebate right now you can get it for 29.99 and its made by a reputable company known for good quality. As for gpu for 300 i think i would get this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp43662k... will run everything you are looking for. m 0 l EzioAs January 29, 2013 11:32:59 AM Case recommendations: Antec Three Hundred Antec Three Hundred Two Bitfenix Merc Alpha Cooler Master Elite 430 Cooler Master HAF 912 Corsair 200R Corsair 300R PSU recommendations: Corsair TX550M SeaSonic S12II 520 SeaSonic G 550 XFX Pro Series 550W Antec High Current Gamer 620M Corsair TX650 V2 SeaSonic S12II 620 XFX Core Edition 650 $300 Video card: HD7950 or GTX660ti Take your pick.
