post #1 of 5

Hi guys! I'm back! Sorry if I was idle the past week but I've been busy. My mom is in a family of 3 sisters. The youngest wants to speak to my mom(eldest) and her the middle one via Skype. See the youngest has 2 boys and they like playing old ps2 games in Greece. When I was over I showed them how fun online gaming is. Now they want to game,Their father wants to do work on it and their mother wants to talk to her family via Skype. So I put this build together.[BTW it's for HD videos and medium-high internet usage and lots of gaming] In Greece 1300 buys E6700 with integrated graphics with a 500GB 5400RPM hard drive with Vista Ultimate. So I put this rig together. Tell me if you like it and what I can fix. I'm buying in Philly and shipping to Greece.

Give it more than an hour.

Also, it's pointless getting a 2500K with that H67 mobo. Swap it out for P67 or downgrade the CPU. Swap out the GTX460 for a GTX560Ti or higher.

Hey Hey not so fast.. The rigs sick. Those will be some happy kids.

The 650w will not only power it but easily power a 2nd GTX 460 too if that ever happens. You can just get a nice 500w?

I'd lose the AS5 & get a smaller PSU. The GTX 460 is not a weak card, but is the weaklink in that build. 6870 for around ~$150 (after MIR) instead?

Actually I'm using AS5 in my rig and my temps went down about 4C. My rig generates to much heat. So I used this as a back up. I use the calculator on New Egg to determine how much watts and the one on ocn and a couple others and got an average. It was 632 watts. So I went the the TX-650v2. Everybody says it's a great PSU so I'm thinking of picking that up. I think I'l keep the 460. It's exactly what they will need and a bit more. They will play CS,TF2,SF,GTA:SA,Possibly some BF2 on highish-maxish(I have to buy some of these games for them *cries*)

Sorry I was inpatient. As I said in the above the GTX 460 is a great card for the money and is amazing for their first rig. I went with the H67 chipset because it'a their first computer. I'm not getting them some badss first computer. The H67 is shows the full potential of the sandy bridge series cpu's.


NOW CAN SOME1 FIND ME A CHEAP 21-24 inch led backlit monitor for about 130-210 bucks.
