$750-$800 build - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Oh! For Case LED's. I have found NZXT to be an amazing in-case LED Lighting.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ath=72_107_921

I got the 2m one for a build I did not too long ago. Needless to say I'm definitely impressed with the quality and light. The LED is powered by a molex adapter and fits into an expansion slot. in the back where it is held the lighting can actually be adjusted 3 ways, from dim to bright, and even has an off button!

I dunno if you can see the link but it was the build I'm standing by when people ask for around 700-800 price range. For the price, I don't see how this can be beat

BTW, with him being an anti AMD person, he very well may not want that ATI card (even though it is the best at that budget).

In that case, just sub in a GTX 560 (not the ti version). In that combo deal I showed with the VGA, they had a 560 as an option as well, but it was like $20-$25 more or something.

Enjoy the build!

I forgot to mention that he does not need an OS. I updated the OP.

Price: 25$ (Newegg)

Graphics Card: AMD HD6850 or 6870
Price: $160 or $180 (respectively - and could be had for less with deals)

Total: ~$740

Check Slickdeals for better prices, but those are usually what they're at.

Also, you might not even really need the GFX card... the HD3000, which is built in to the 2600k, is not so bad and might be able to play StarCraft at high settings.

This guy has a good pick, but if I would make a few suggestions:
A 2500k would more than likely be more than enough and it saves quite a bit of money, especially if you don't have a MicroCenter near you to get those kind of deals.
The Asus P8Z68-V is a great mobo, however i went with the V Pro, the Gskil ram is great (get 1600) 8gb is enuf.
I like the CM Storm series cases like the Enforcer, I own both an Enforcer and Scout, and love them both. Also great price.
the CM Hyper 212+ is a great budget cooler and does very very well, considering it's price.
As far the gfx card, he obviously said the guy didn't like AMD, so I would suggest a Asus GTX 460, its an AMAZING card, I have yet to find a game I can't run at max settings, and it's cheap.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121391 (135$ after rebates, or grab the overclocked version, however, I found that my normal one overclocked like a champ anyways, so it saves some good $$)
Asus GTX 460 OC version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121420

Also, doess he have things like a hard drive, dvd burner? monitor, keyboard mouse etc?
What exactly does he have that he can use? I mean he could grab a 32GB ssd, and run it with Intel Z68 ssd cache. You don't need much tech know-how to set that up, you never even see it as a drive, it just speeds up your system automatically. Which sounds like a great idea for this guy.
Heres a 32gb Patriot ssd for $45 after rebate.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220580
cant beat that.

Since you are doing this with no OS, and have the budget, here is an updated idea from myself.

More CPU, and GPU for $757.75 before rebates.

I know people don't like ebay, but these are New in the box items. I have never had an issue with new items from ebay. I was thinking about getting one of these myself.

Hope this helps!
