I'm looking to build an Intel based PC used primarily for gaming. I'm hoping to buy in the next few weeks and I was trying to get some thoughts and opinions before I dive in.
I'm looking to spend around $750 but go pretty heavy with the CPU and mobo so I can easily add ram and a second of whichever video card I decide to use. I plan to use a TV as my monitor (for now) and I won't need to buy an OS for this build. Overclocking is a maybe.
Below are the components I'm looking at right now but I'd like to know if anything is too much or too little.
You're spending to much one the cpu and other stuff and less on the gpu, if it's primarily for gaming, you need a better gpu.
I don't see much of a point in crossfiring two low end cards, and 8GB is suffice for gaming, most boards got 4 dimm slots.
My suggestion, look for the i5-3350p which is much more cheaper, and a h77 or z75 motherboard.
And get a better card, if possible the 7870 tahiti le, the xfx 550 core edition is a quality psu as good as the corsair TX V2, both seasonic units, but the xfx 550 is cheaper, and you'll probably won't need 650W.
