First Build From Scratch - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Here is a build I would do for $1000

CPU: 2500k $219.99
CPU Cooler: NH-D14 $79.99
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO $179.99
Ram: GSKill Ripjaws 4gb(2x2gb) 1600 cas8 1.5V $39.99 (currently OOS but worth waiting a couple days for it)
HD: Samsung F3 1TB 59.99
PSU: Antec NeoECO 620 $69.99
GPU: Palit gtx560 ti $219.99 -$20 MIR = $200

That leaves ~$70 ($90 after MIR) for you to spend on a case of your choosing that looks good to you.

If you can spend any more (I saw you said 1000 but your cart was 1200) I would look at moving up to a 580.

A good case is the Lian Li PC-7FN Comes out to $85 after using promo code: lianlijuly . Amazing Lian Li quality with good airflow. At this price range the quality is unmatched.

I appreciate the help everyone, I took your suggestions and I put together a Sandy Bridge build for around the same total.

I was thinking and I am pretty sure I will add another 560 Ti to the system down the road.

Suggestions would be helpful rather then just saying you would change things. Do you have any benchmarks to back up it being faster? As far as I can tell, its SATA II and 32MB of cache, while the one I listed is SATA III and has 64MB of cache.

Sata II vs III means nothing with a HDD. The F3 and the Caviar black are both at the same level with black being faster random and F3 being faster consecutive. Random would matter more if it were a system drive but it sounds like storage. Even then you can get 2 F3s for similar price to the Caviar black and a Raid 0 F3 setup will dominate the Caviar Black.

In on a mobile device so as much as I'd like to do it for you, even posting on ocn is hard for me. Why not use google search engine to find the reviews?
And yeah connection interface makes no difference on hdds
