Help me win a bet!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I made a bet with my Dad that I could build a fast gaming computer for to take to University; the kicker is it has to be either/under $1200. This is because his crappy Acer cost that amount & he is paying for it. thumb.gif

I play around with Photoshop and stuff aswell as Gaming of course! I would like to have at least 2TB of storage and would love a SSD! I was thinking of a 570, but it doesn't have to be that. I will add another one later. I want to play GTA IV on pretty good settings, MW3, Battlefield 3 all at reasonably high settings. Thats about all. tongue.gif

Supplier: pccasegear.com

Thanks!

Do you need to have Peripherals included too? or just the PC?

ok let's say
2500k
8gb ram
decent asus/gigabyte mobo with sli or crossfire
2tb storage - keep in mind flooding in thailand has driven up hard drive prices. best not to purchase anything right now
ssd
650w PSU for 1 card. if potentially upgrading in the future 850W
medium-atx case
CPU cooling

should leave you enough for a 560ti/570 if you don't include a monitor or any other peripheral accessories

from the top of my head

2500k
8gb corsair vengeance cl9 or 8gb kingston hyperx
ga z68xp ud3
f3 spinpoint
antec neo eco 620c
an optical drive
case? personal preference
as for the graphics card, anything is fine (560ti /570 /6950/6970 etc)

done went over by $75 and you still need a case but i dont know what case your after! lol

i changed the 570 to 6950 as it provides better performance for less moneys. (after you flip its bios switch!)

if you can live with "only" 1TB storage for the time being you are $50 under budget and can afford a nice case!

Here is my contribution. Add a cheap mouse/keyboard and you're all set. Had to make a few sacrifices in storage and took a small hit in GPU, but this is overall a great computer. I would have gone AMD, but this is the Intel forum.

All those are great. You might want to tell him though that HDD prices have SKYROCKETED; and that if they were normal price you'd be under $1200 easy. That might help if you want to make the budget a bit higher. tongue.gif

Best of luck thumb.gif
