    Hey if you want to put your PC together a lot easier, use PCPartPicker.com. A lot of people here use it and it's less of an eyesore. And about your build, you don't really need a Sound Card. I also HIGHLY suggest getting at least a 80 Plus certified PSU. That way it won't blow up your stuff.

    If you found my post helpful, check my build video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzwLSIs1M1k
    Thank you and hoped this helped!
  2. Yeah it's for gaming entirely.
  3. I threw the sound card in for whatever its been a good six hears since I built a pc and I don't remember if I had one. I do use a headset most of the time anyway but I will also have my music on here
  4. Hi. over the next few months, a lot of thing would have changed.

    ditch the sound card if you don't have a 5.1 sound system or if you're not a massive audiophile. onboard sound will be more than enough with a headset.

    you don't need so much ram for gaming. 2x4GB DDR3-1600 for $40-50 will be more than you need for gaming alone, if not too much.

    power supply is a huge deal; grab a bad one, and you can possibly kiss your whole PC goodbye. 500-600W 80+ certified Bronze (at least), from Antec, Corsair, XFX or Seasonic if you don't plan to add another GPU to SLI. 600-700W if you do.
  6. Ill definately look at these lists but im not trying to go for a budget pc. I can spend a bit and i want this guy to last a while before i have to start adding more too it.

    Memory is so cheap that 16 gigs is kind of a why not for me. Ill drop the sound card, wasnt sure on that to begin with.

    however on my list if i should go a little cheaper in one are and higher in the next ill look at that but im pretty set on atleast the brands that i have. As far as sticking with a EVGA card and intel cpu but i guess in those parameters i can shift things around...

    But like i said i am going to check out your lists to see what else is out there.
  7. Hmmm that case has me in a tight spot. I like some of the features but im not a fan of its looks...Its lacking a lot there. Thats why i like the 900 so much

    So where could i boost this build a bit. Like i said i would prefer a EVGA card if theres an equivalent and i could pump the pcu a bit also.
  9. you do notice that the only benefit of a evga card is warranty. everything else (temps, OC potential, price) is pretty bad

    the R4 is much better than the 900
  10. Plus their upgrade system is nice if you ever want to get a new card
  11. Can i crossfire that HD7850? And would it be worth it?
  12. evga doesnt make amd cards.
  13. Yeah I know I'm asking about the card you posted on your list
  14. its a gtx 670. how can a nvidia card crossfire with a amd card
  15. So what is your budget... let's get to the bottom of this.
  16. TheBigTroll said:
    its a gtx 670. how can a nvidia card crossfire with a amd card



    I didn't ask if I could crossfire the vega with the amd pretty sure I asked if I could crossfire the hd 7850 as in two of them


    I can spend in and around $1000ish ill be buying parts over time so my prices can he higher
  17. crossfire 7850s will perform better than a 7970 or a gtx 670 for sure, but then i wouldnt recommend it. if you were to ever upgrade the card, you end up having to replace 2 cards instead of one
  18. That's true but how long should that last me? 2 7850's for 300ish ain't bad and I they last 2 or 3 years that's no problem
  19. no one knows how long it will last. once crysis 3 hits, everything goes downhill
  20. Hi, don't get parts piece by piece. Buy it all in one go because if something is wrong with the part you'll have a hard time returning it since you can't check it right away.
  21. hmm good point there. Maybe i can part together the case and monitor and such and do one main haul on the mobo cpu gpu memory psu. Hard drives i could probably get ahead of time same with the cd drives
  22. Guess im just a little excited at the prospect of a new build. My laptop passed away recently so im shopping around getting ideas in my head haha
  23. Hi, no no no. Don't get the monitor first.

    You also won't be able to check it.

    Just buy it all together. :) It's easier to return especially if you return it the next day because of the defects. :) Of course, it's not common but it's not that uncommon as well.
  24. ram is probably a good choice on the list of things to buy first. they have been going up in prices in the last while
  25. I think it's a sign of DDR4 rams to come!

    :)
  26. so what can i get ahead of time to make the chunk price a bit lower when i end up getting everything else... im definately buying the case fist cause i may do some paint work on it. Im liking cutebeans build up above more and more but i can probably bump the price up to around 800ish so where can i upgrade on that build? the CPU?
  27. Hello, I really have to say that the games you listed will be maxed out easily by the 7850.

    If you really want to get it to $800. Buy the 7870 XT. It will max most games out there.

    Although if you spend most of your time playing MC and Dota2. I would jsut get the 7850 and save the $100+ on something else :)
  28. Well those are my most plate but I also have bf3 and borderlands 2 and black opts an all that fun stuff those are just My main two probably
  29. I think the 7850 is where I'm gonna go but is there a step up on that CPU?
  30. Best answer
    Hi, there would be no sense in getting i5-3570k then getting a 7850.

    You would be better off getting a better GPU than a CPU :).

    Get a 7870 XT. Remember, Gaming is always GPU>CPU.
  31. if you play borderlands 2, you have to get a nvidia GPU. the game looks completely different without nvidia rigging it
