new intel build

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Firstly, I'm not sure here is the right forum to ask new build questions but I found here. So, sorry if not.

I'm planning to make a new build. I use it for gaming and my personal works. I need the virtualization features of CPU. I will also buy a 3D monitor to play games 3d. Also will be used for drawing (in ArchiCAD, Photoshop).

My budget is like 2000-2500$. I live in Turkey so I write here Turkey prices.

Mainboard - msi z77a-gd65 - $226
Processor - intel i7 3770 - $349
RAM - Kingston HyperX 8GB 1600Mhz - $57
Harddrive - Team 240GB Xtreem S3 - $384
Harddive-2 - Seagate 2TB Sata3 64MB Barracuda TX 7200rpm - $156
Graphics - Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 - $450 (approx.)
Monitor - ASUS VG236H - $530
Case-PSU - THERMALTAKE VN47021W2NE COMMANDER BLACK 700W - $168
Dvd drive - LG GH-22N550 22x DVD-RW - $27


So, here it is. Total 2347$.

I can change the whole build according to your comments.

Thanks

Don't get a case bundled with a PSU as it will be low quality.

I wud change several things.
1) MSI isnt very good. More cheap like I dont know how to explain it but all i know is i would suggest an ASRock Extreme 4 or something or even the Asus Sabertooth.
2) You need a 3D monitor why. If u plan on 3D in this build on dont see the kit with it. I also understand that you may want the ability to upgrade to 3D later on but I think you should make that descision now cuz 3D monitors cost A LOT.
3) Same with what Azeem said. bundles PSU stink and it rely isnt worth it to go cheap on the PSU.
4) Finally I believe going with a stock cooler isnt very good. Get yourself a hyper 212 or something. For their price, they offer excellent cooling abilities.

I don't see what's wrong with an MSI mobo. but take a Sabertooth all the same; they are great!

A good rig needs a good PSU. Don't underestimate the importance of it. It's the last part you are to go cheap on.

I hope you get your hands on a 670, it looks like it will be highly popular, and seeing the availability on Kelper thus far...

As everyone else has said, get a better PSU for sure. What is that first hard disk?

Ok, Let's change some of them.

Firstly, about MainBoard. I found some:

* Asus Sabertooth Z77 ($280)
* Asus P8Z77-V Pro ($252)
* Gigabyte GA-Z77-UD5H (UD3H) and WiFi version (I can't find it in Turkey)

I choose non-K version CPU because K version lacks of some virtualization features. So I'm not planning to overclock much.

Maybe later I will do a SLI but not now. So I don't want to give more money to a MainBoard.

I think I can stick with MSI or choose Asus P8Z77-V Pro. But still not sure.

Ok. You are right, I should change the PSU. I don't know what PSU I should use but I found:

* Corsair TX V2 80 Plus 750W ($152)
* Corsair TX V2 80 Plus 650W ($124)
And their Enthusiast series which is +15 dollar expensive. (modular cable version)

650W is enough for that system?

--

Since I will not do an overclock (maybe a bit) I thought that I won't need an external cooling unit but I can buy an Coolermaster hyper 212 evo for $52.

--

I will use SSD for OS (Linux and Windows). Other 2TB disk for archiving.

--

And about 3d thing, isn't this system enough for 3d? I can buy ASUS VG236H with nvidia vision 3d set (for $530).

Also I have questions about MainBoard:

Should I buy a mSata supported Mainboard? (since I will buy a SSD drive, this is not mSata but maybe later I'll buy a mSata one?)

Virtu MVP supported Mainboard is better. (isn't it?)

SLI supported one is better. (maybe later I'll do)

Wi-Fi support is also good but not must.

an average soundcard (realtek alc898 is good enough, i think)

so, according to that informations which one should I prefer?

I started from $160 (msi z77a-g45) but still can't decide.

OOO u live in Turkey, no wonder everything is much more expensive. If u are not going OC then i suggest to stick with stock then. Then i would just stick with the MSI board. Its ok but Asus Sabertooth is still better. MSI is good for cheap.

K series CPU lacks of Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) feature.
