I've decided to get a new computer, and want to build my own on a $1,000 budget (including monitor). Recently been looking at iBUYPOWER, and found some cheap prices, but mainly want to stay away from sites like that.
I'm from Canada, so newegg.ca is where I've been looking at.
Can anyone help me pick out the best parts for the buck?
Approximate Purchase Date: as soon as possible (this week)
Budget Range: Within $1,000 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/Photoshop/small video Editing Are you buying a monitor: Yes Do you need to buy OS:Yes Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.ca Location: Hamilton, Ontario. Canada Parts Preferences: None really Overclocking: Maybe SLI or Crossfire: No Your Monitor Resolution: Would like to get 1920x1080 And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Current computer is a Dell from 2005.
Well depending What you will be playing the 7850 will perform much better at a 1080p resolution. The 7770 Will still be able to play all games but your looking at more of a 720p resolution on med settings.
Keep in mind it depends on what games you play. Older games the 7770 will handle no problem. Its only modern games you will have to probably turn the settings down. Typically ina gaming computer you want to buy the best gpu you can afford.
There's no CPU Cooler... That makes an unlocked processor near useless.
Yeah i couldnt really squueze one in to the budget like i would have liked. Under overclocking he said maybe... so i didnt add one. The i5 will still perform great without and overclock. but at least with this setup...overclocking is still a option in the future. Just needs to through in a 20-30 dollar cooler.
