Hello,

I am building a budget gaming/workstation computer for less than $700 after tax. I have picked the following parts and it would be much appreciated if you can comment or give any recommendation.

Background info: I like to do some over clocking in the future and some of the games I play are League of Legends and Diablo 3. I am by no means a hard core gamer. What I really focus on is, a quiet pc, reliable pc, and a pc that can last for a minimum of 2 years without any major upgrades. Also, will this pc be safe running for 24/7?


CPU: AMD FX 8320 (Bought for $169.49 after tax)

Motherboard: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=2...

Memory: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Hard drive: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Video card: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

case: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

power supply: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

optical drive: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...


Any comment will be very appreciated because I am trying to get the best system for myself.

Thank you very much

You will want a better GPU. The gtx650 will play games like diablo on low/med settings at 1080p. Its a pretty weak bottom end GPU.

gtx650ti or the hd 7850 if you can swing it.

I would get a lesser CPU (fx-6300) and a better GPU. This will improve gaming performance drastically.

No, it will be basically exactly the same. Its a weak GPU meant for lower resolutions. At 1080p It will do poorly. If you want better gaming performance, get the fx-6300 and use the leftover money to get a better GPU.

It will be slightly better than the gtx650. It will play games at medium settings. I would really suggest dropping the CPU to an fx-6300 and using the money to get a better GPU.

The fx-6300 is $140 + tax which brings it to $158. I got my Fx 8320 for 169 after tax so for $10 more, I think it is safe to stick with the 8320

If you can get it for that price go for it. My point is, if you can save 5-10 dollars in 4 places, you could greatly improve your gaming performance with a better GPU that will be able to play games longer before needing to be replaced.
