Seriously need help with this due to it being my first hand built computer. This is what I'm thinking so far: Case: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129042[/url] or [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066[/url] Mother Board: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130695[/url] Graphics Card: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130932[/url] Power Supply: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139061[/url] (Should I opt for a 650W?) or [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200[/url] Processor: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117372[/url] RAM: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144[/url] (Not too sure about this) IHD: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=22-236-339[/url] or [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178391[/url] I'm also open to REALLY GOOD pre-built desktops. I'm really looking for the best bang for my buck.
Why not a z97 mobo? And dont get a blue drive as your main HDD. Either get an SSD to go with it or a black drive.
[QUOTE=taipan;46557103]Why not a z97 mobo? And dont get a blue drive as your main HDD. Either get an SSD to go with it or a black drive.[/QUOTE] So a HDD like this [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236624[/url] ? Also which z97 mobo? I'm finding multiple results.
Yes, And this one is nice: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130771[/url] Or if you really want to cheap out (especially on sound and SLI): [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130779[/url]
[QUOTE=taipan;46557103]Why not a z97 mobo? And dont get a blue drive as your main HDD. Either get an SSD to go with it or a black drive.[/QUOTE] Nowadays blues and blacks are pretty much the same as long as you get a 64mb of cache model except for blues don't go above 1tb and don't have a 5 year warranty
Okay so how about this: Case: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066[/url] Mother Board: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130771[/url] Graphics Card: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130932[/url] Power Supply: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200[/url] (I don't need a 750w PS with this build do I?) Processor: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117372[/url] RAM: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144[/url] HHD: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236624[/url]
Any suggestions to the build above? I'd prefer the build to stay under 1000$
You should get a Hyper 212 Evo Also 770gtx's are going pretty cheap right now used on EBAY, you might want to check them out. This one is 180 buy it now [url]http://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-770-OC-DirectCU-II-2GB-/161497720092?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item259a03a51c[/url]
Jesus $40 shipping
This might sound a little ignorant but how much of a performance boost would I get out of that card compared to a GTX 760? Should I wait for Cyber-Monday?
[QUOTE=Gorm;46574786]This might sound a little ignorant but how much of a performance boost would I get out of that card compared to a GTX 760? [/QUOTE] In games you'll generally get 10-20 FPS more with the 770
