Building a gaming computer Tags: Gaming Computers Build Last response: January 17, 2012 10:45 PM in Other Consumer Electronics Share GLowMat December 14, 2011 10:20:08 AM I wanted to get a not to expensive gaming computer, so I decided to build one. These are the parts I intent to use: -Intel core i5-2500k: $200 -GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3: $120 -Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler, RR-B10-212P-G1 $35 -DDR3 Kingston 4GB/1600 Mhz HyperX Genesis CL9 x2: $45 -Radeon HD 6870: $155 -Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 Sata 1TB 6GB/s $95 -ASUS DRW 24B3ST: $25 -OCZ ModXStream Pro Power Supply 600 watt: $70 -IN WIN BR665 Black SECC steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case $80 So it`s $825, which is probably going to be more because I want warranty. Now, is this a good computer build? And are there better pre-build computer for $800-$1000? I would like to know.
