Help with gaming build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The computer will be used for gaming, Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 as of now. No overclocking. Maximum budget with Monitor and no OS is $800

Components from MemoryExpress, choose components from Winnipeg. Or if you can find components SHIPPED for the same cost (since he wont' be paying shipping fees from memory express)

Here is what I was thinking of:
605

Can't comment on the AMD stuff due to no recent knowledge on them but if you can squeeze a little more budget the 560 Ti is roughly 20% faster than the regular 560. It was my last card and I loved it.

if it is only for gaming maybe go with a phenom instead of the fx, fx is good choice but from what i've heard phenom is better for gaming

The FX will do fine and try to get a MOBO with at least 9xx chipset.... Preferably 990 and go ahead and get a 560ti

Does it have to be from memory express? You're paying way too much for that 560.

Well if you can find a place in canada that is around the same price shipped for a better card. Since he'll be going in the store and no shipping fee
