This is going to be my first ever build so any suggestions? Compatibility ? I'm building it in a budget as well.
This is what I have for now:
Cooler master haf 912
Asrock z77 extreme 4 lga 1155
Intel i53570 k
Amd radeon hd 7770 sapphire
I'm not sure what and how much power supply to get.
How much ram.
32 or 64 bit ?
How much hard drive
Windows 7 or 8
Please tell me what you guys think on what I have for my first build.
I really need all the help I can get. I'm just starting to get into computers.
Thank you. -Mar
Is this mainly for gaming ? if it's, you need to spend more on the gpu and less on the cpu and motherboard.
Get the xfx 550 core edition in newegg it's at 40$ after ap and mir.
8GB of ram will do, dual channel is preferred with the voltage no more than 1.5v.
A hdd with 1tB in most cases will be suffice.
And for the os, the windows 7 hp 64 bits, you need the 64 bits in order to use the 8GB of ram.
For more, tell what's your total budget and priorities.
It's not really mostly for gaming but I just want a pretty good all around computer. Is it faster if I'm running 64 bits than 32 bit.?
I'm proly gonna be spending around $600
And by the way are all the parts I showed compatible with each other ??
You need a 64 bit operating system
I chose win8 for my most recent build . It has a better license than oem versions of win 7
and an 8 gig kit of RAM . 2 x4 gig sticks , 1600 MHz and rated for 1.5 volts or less
It's all compatible, but i don't think you'll be able to fit all the parts with os, within 600$.
And get the windows 7 hp 64 bits, there's no point in getting the 32 bits, it's at the same price, you'll be restricted in the ram.
Here's a list, even if it's not mostly for gaming, a 7850 comes in handy : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ED4m
Get the 64 bit os, the 32 bits has a ram limitation of 4GB, you need the 64 bits if you want to use more ram and also take advantage of certain apps that were written for 64 bits.
There's no point in getting the 32 bit os nowadays, and it's at the same price.
