Need some feedback on $1k~ rig - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Go for a 960T, 2500K, or 8120. It might be a good idea to get the 2500K, it destroys anything AMD has for gaming. The 960T would be a great deal, it's inexpensive and it has crazy OC'ing capabilities, you can go from quad core at 3ghz to a hexacore at ~4ghz if it unlocks right.

Take a look at this mATX rig I recently priced. Just substitute full size ATX mobo and case if desired.

Newegg doesn't carry them anymore, but amazon still has a few in stock, my only problem with the 2500k is that it and a comparable mobo would be a pretty large increase in price if I didn't drop anything else to compensate. I am open to it though, who knows maybe in a month I might have an extra hundred bucks laying around to add on to my build for upgrades.

I know that prices change constantly, but barring an event like the flooding that drove hdd prices up - most of my build's prices will be pretty close to what they are today. the main point was just for me to get some feedback, and some helpful advice maybe. I've never had to put my own build list together before, and there are things that newegg reviews and even places like tom's hardware don't tell you about the products. Looking over the recommendations in this thread has helped me make some decisions I wasn't certain about.

and if you think its a un-balanced rig (i guess most will say that) then just replace the 7870 with 7850 and can go with better other things like
