Building a Budget Gaming Rig for Friend - Feedback Wanted - Page 4

post #31 of 33
hmmm... ur location says UK, but u're quoting AUD, so i'll presume u're building it in Aussie. =)

i'll recommend getting the i5-2500k and the AsRock P67-Pro it'll cost approx $40 (according to PCCG, 15 dollars for processor and 20 dollars for mobo) more than budgeted, but it'll perform alot better i presume. (IF he is overclocking, or else, the 40 dollars could be spent on other parts.)

and drop the ram to 4GB, i think 4GB is more than enough for gaming and all. you can always add in more ram later. =)

btw, what about PSU? and i'll recommend going for a HAF912, and does he really need a wireless-N card? i think a normal USB Wireless-G would be sufficient?

I don't know where he'll be buying the parts, but I wasn't sure on the PSU, so I didn't post it.

Pretty much non MLG games. Minecraft? Really
No one plays HL

Then again my opinion from a gamers point of view.
