Total noob, need help with minimum pc build for certain gaming - Page 6

post #51 of 53
Thread Starter 
So these were the parts I was trying to get. I was able to get the MB, CPU, Cooler, and RAM. The three items in bold are the ones I now need replacements for since they already sold before I could get to them. Any suggestions? Thanks

Gigabyte 890FX UD5 / AMD Phenom II 925 X4 - $100
This is a GREAT deal. The motherborad, while not the tippy top, is a solid performer and overclocker and that CPU is a good one too.
EVGA GTS 450 1 GB - $80
Not a huge powerhouse of a card I run my SWTOR at an average of 45-50fps on my sig rig with the Asus model. Should be ample for now I would think.
Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB - $60
You won't find a better price on these right now.
Corsair TX750 - $60+shipping
Older, non-modular model but still a good quality PSU.
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU Cooler - $27
Solid performer from the reviews I have seen and at a good price. Its has Carbon Fiber Film Mod.
Samsung 2x4GB DDR3 30nm Desktop Memory, highly overclockable - $45
Look to be pretty good performance wise. Not the prettiest without Heatsinks but performance before looks IMO
