Gaming Computer build (Help)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey im looking to build a new gaming computer on a budget of $750 or less. I already own a monitor and a crappy mouse (If you have a good cheap mouse that fits in the budget then feel free to add it). So I just need good parts that will fit the budget or around it. Thanks

There's ample room for a mouse. TBH I use the Microsoft OEM mouse but if you want something "better" you could get something like a deathadder but takes your budget way over.

Razer and Steelseries are my favourites at the moment but again I use a "crappy" OEM mouse seeing as I don't feel the need to get a "gaming mouse" and pay twice the price for it.

EDIT: Mine includes an SSD and I'm assuming you're going to cannibalize an optical drive from your old system, otherwise I think the Samsung S2223C or something like that is a pretty good optical drive and only like 20 bucks.

Booooooooooooo
Supercomboes like these are actually really, really bad in terms of the deal you get, parts choice, etc. You can get something significantly better for the same price, all you have to do is look yourself. Sorry to let you down, but that is what I have found with every single supecombo I've seen. See below for what I mean by "there are better deals for price".

My recommendation (pretty similar to that other one posted but with a few twists ). All items bought from Newegg except where specified:
x4 955 - $105 shipped after promo [see link]
ASRock 870 Extreme3 - $90 shipped [Newegg should give you an AM3+ rev of this mobo, which means this summer you can slap an FX-Series in and fly!]
2x2GB G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3-1600 - $40 after promo
Rosewill Green 530W + Rosewill Challenger - $90 shipped all (PSU would be good for single card)
Samsung F3 1TB - $54 shipped [Superbiiz]
Galaxy GTX 560 Ti - $226.28, $40 mail-in-rebate/$186.28 AR (this super cheap deal on a 560 Ti is a good one, 560 Ti should easily take on 6950-6970 in performance with OC!). Mail in rebate has a no-wait-rebate option.
GM-M6880 mouse - $22 shipped
LG 24X DVD - $20 shipped
OCZ Vertex 2 Sandforce 50GB Solid State Drive - $100 shipped [B&H Photo & Video]
Thermaltake Contac 30 - $30 shipped [Mwave]
Newegg new customer promo code - $10 off!

955, AM3+ expandable, GTX 560 Ti, that mouse you wanted, overclockable w/a CPU cooler, SSD.... items in bold were never considered in other suggestions.

Total cost shipped, counting that $40 rebate, using the no-wait-rebate option for an extra $1 (subtracted from rebate return total) you get it back in 9 days:
$727.28 shipped

^^^ What? Under $730!?
Okay I've made a couple of good builds for price before but I think this is just pushing it
