$1600 Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thinking of building myself another PC. Been completely out of the PC world for nearly a year and have no clue what is good or "top" these days. I DO NOT NEED a case but hdd/ssd/mobo/ram/CPU/GPU are all needing recommendations.

Whats hot to get right now??

I used to have an ft02... I have 300 set aside for that so likely the best full tower I can find.

This is a copy and paste of what I recommended, for someone who was doing a $1400 build hopefully it can help you too.

With that kind of money you can build a really powerful computer. Hopefully I can help, on other fourms people say my builds suck.


Case: when doing a first build, I like to recommend a big case, that you can reuse if you decide to upgrade, and expand, with cases its generally a preference. $130

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146068

Power Supply: When doing a first build I like recommending a power supply that is a lot more than you actually need because you can reuse it if you decide to expand. $150

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151108

CPU: I am going to recommend, what a lot of others are the Core I5 2500k. The i7 2600k will not give you better performance over the i5 2500k in gaming. $230

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

Motherboard Really like this one has some good features, and supports Crossfire, and SLI $200

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131702

Ram: Nothing special here 8GB is starting to become the standard now. $40

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231426

Video Card: The new 7970 a little faster than the GTX 580, and has great overclocking Capability's $550

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102961

Rest of components I am not going to recommend, a SSD, HDD, or optical drive this is really up to you.

The total of this build is $1300 not really giving you much room to work with for a SSD or a HDD, but I think with some scrounging you can get something. Hopefully this was at least slightly helpful.
