500 dollar build help Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: February 4, 2013 5:21 PM in Systems Share clipso February 4, 2013 5:14:35 PM Is this solid for 500? Any room for improvement or way to cut a little cost without sacrificing any performance? Will this run most games on medium settings in 720p Resolution?

More about : 500 dollar build zared619 February 4, 2013 5:21:19 PM That looks like a great budget build. The 7850 will probably max out games at 720p. I recommend trying to get an extra $30 and get a 212 EVO cpu cooler. The stock cooler on the 965 is pretty loud. If you get a cpu cooler, you need low profile RAM like this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Other than that, you should be set.
