Good value PC?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I was gonna build a new PC, and I was just wondering if I'm getting ripped off or if I should get a better (insert part here) for the same or cheaper price. This is all Newegg prices, so if anyone recommends a different site just tell me.


Case = COOLER MASTER CM 690 II Advanced nVidia Edition ($100)
Power Supply = CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 ($164)
CPU = i5 2500k ($219)
Motherboard = ASUS P8Z68-V PRO = ($190)
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series X 8GB (2 x 4GB) ($51)
Graphics/video card = MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition ($594)
Sound card = ASUS Xonar DX ($70)
Hard drive = SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB ($60)
optical drive = ASUS 24X DVD Burner ($19)
Corsair Nova Series 2 60GB SSD = $90
CPU Cooler= Corsair CWCH60= ($74)

Looks smart to me, maybe get a Noctua d14 in place of the h60.

this.

Crucial M4's are awesome stock and more awesome after the firmware update. Just make sure to connect it to the SATA III connection to extract it's full power.

I'm also thinking that PSU is overkill. A 650W or 750W may suffice. If you plan on going SLI, disregard.

Other than that, this build looks quite solid.

get the xonar DX from amazon with the 20 dollar rebate u're looking at around 40 bucks. and i second Crucial m4 its better than the corsair for sure. If i were you i'd look at the corsaid 400R it looks pretty sick lol. Motherboard i suggest Asrock Extreme 4 Gen 3 and yes, get the noctua nd14 or something like that.
