What does 4GK RAM mean? It seems much cheaper, at least for the OCZ brand on the Bizgram pricelist

[QUOTE=Pedophila;25440668]Is the GTX460 more powerful than a 5870?[/QUOTE] Not really.
Anyway, I've made a rough build. Here goes: Mobo + CPU : i5-760 + GA-P55A-UD3P - $524 PSU : XFX xxx Edition 650W Modular -$169 GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD5870 Vapor-X 1GB - $530 RAM: TeamElite DDR3 PC1600 4GK RAM - $142 Case: Cooler Master HAF X - $285 HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB - $80 Optical drive: LG GH22NS - $29 Total : $1759 SGD / 1340 USD What does everyone think?
Just my personal opinion, but I think you ought to go with more reputable brands for the RAM like Corsair or OCZ. I've never actually heard of TeamElite. Also it's not listed on memory support list for your mobo. I'm guessing it'll still work but no guarantees since it's not listed. Assuming you're looking for good cooling (inferred that because of the HAF case and vapor-x for the gpu), you could get a 3rd party cooler for the cpu. The Cooler Master Hyper 212+ costs about 60 bucks. Since you're using such a large HDD, you'll probably want to have a different partitions for all your stuff (like boot partition, data partition, etc).

Barney is the boot drive (windows OS and some other things), Stinson is the data drive (my steam folder, games, apps). Downloads is a seperate harddrive, so ignore that. It's gonna last you quite a while, since it's pretty overkill for what you intend to do (stated in the OP). Anyway, add me on steam at xybjj12 if you need help real-time.

My 9800GT and Shitty 1.8GHz Quad Core maxes out those games, and I spent a lot less then 1,000 bucks.

^ It's not bad but he plans to get a monitor within the budget too. I'll assemble a build after the 6k series is out then I'll post it here and you can help me optimize it.

Should I just go with whatever build is made in here? (my thread) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?1014812-1000-AUD-Computer[/url]
[QUOTE=Axiom :D;25478155]He spent 1340 in that configuration with 329$ you can get a good monitor.[/QUOTE] I talked with him yesterday. He hasn't gotten a confirmed budget yet, plus we're all waiting for the 6k series to come out. His new monitor res. will probably be 1920x1080.

It's from newegg. You're in Australia. Newegg doesn't ship internationally, only in the US (and Puerto Rico). But sure, go for it. Should work quite well at your res.

Wait another week to see how the 6k series turns out.
Okay guys the 6xxx series is out and i need help choosing parts. I have a budget of about 1400-1500SGD and here are some pricelists to pick out parts from: [img_thumb]http://www.cybermind.com.sg/images/stories/pricelists/cyber-pricelist-diy-page1.gif[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://www.cybermind.com.sg/images/stories/pricelists/cyber-pricelist-diy-page2.gif[/img_thumb] [img_thumb]http://www.cybermind.com.sg/images/stories/pricelists/cyber-pricelist-diy-page3.gif[/img_thumb] I will require a WiFi card and a monitor to fit into the budget as well. All prices stated in the pricelist are in SGD. Try to keep the budget as low as possible thou.
