Stuck on build- bulldozer, sandy, zomsa and others-

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have been reserching for my frist build and am compleatly lost. Ive considered many things like sandy bridge and bulldozer and tons of others and am stuck. I have a $650 budget with an abslote max of $750(really dont want to go that high). My computers r some of the most widely used machiens on this planet- i game, test, fold, program, and do just about everything, thou one thing is that i run tons of stuff at once all the time so i want 8gn min of ram (newegg has some for like $30!) and at least a quad core cpu. If u can, shove an all-in-one water cooler in there:). Thanks for the help!

Anything reusable from current build (ie. HDD. PSU. Case. GPU?)

Cpu/Mobo Combo: i5 2500k on a ASRock Z6 8Gen3 $307 Save $18
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600 $47
Gpu: A Gtx560 or so with budget.
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500gb $75
PSU: Corsair Tx650 V2 $90
Case: Your preference
Cooler: Corsair H60 $65

Total: $584 not including Gpu or Case. thumb.gif

i5 2500ks do not belong in builds with $650-750 budgets.

At least not if you want something well-balanced and within budget.

 

Look for a $100 range CPU in order to up the GPU ante and ensure everything else is a quality part.

 

Also, TX 650 V2? Ripoff if you're going to pay $90.  The same price can get you a quality modular 750W PSU

^^ This, grab a 960T or 955 if going AMD, i3/G850 for intel.
Just realized this thread was from January.... -.-
