My First Gaming PC build, need help! - Page 3

post #21 of 33
I would not get the 1045t. You will have a very very hard time getting 4ghz out of that. I own one right now, and I wish I had found a used 1100 or either one of the FX processors. I would also recommend the 2500k. I have the 2600k at home, and it is just a much better processor than this 1045t. You can find one used, that will be in great shape.
Save your money somewhere else, possibly the GPU, and get an Intel processor

Also, one of the Intel K series processors will be a lot easier to overclock than the 1045t, not more extensive or difficult. The overclocking of the 1045t is not easy, since it is not an unlocked multi

there lower voltage(1.35v) and you can up the voltage(1.5v or 1.65v) and overclock then,but the base 1600mhz will work fine.

The Samsung 30 nm RAM rocks. Best bang for the buck around by far. thumb.gif

-960t
-6850 or 6770

Best cpu/gpu combo for that budget. Kepp those the focus and build the rig around that. You can build a real solid rig at 600 dollar budget.

However, if you wanna save even more money and still game perfectly fine I gotta reccomend my sig rig. Price/performance is unmatched.

+1 on the 6850. I dont really care what the numbers might say, because I have had the 6850 for over a year now, and it has never failed to play a game at the max settings. I can overclock mine to 1ghz on the core and 1.2 on the memory. I don't know what the 7770 has for clocks, but it would be hard to beat those numbers for the price of the 6850.

I agree on getting a 6850 for this rig the OP is building. I have the little brother of the 6870/6850, the 6790. All three are actually the same card and Barts GPU, the 6870 being the "golden" chips that function 100% and clock well, the 6850 having fewer operating cores/shaders-etc and clocking a bit slower, and the third binning of the 256 Barts GPUs is the 6790 (should be called a 6830) which has a few less cores than a 6850 BUT what it does have clock real high. I got both of mine for less than $100 (each) when they were pushing the 6790s and having rebate wars. This was 6-8 months ago, today with 6850s available around ~$120 that is the best value in a GPU. These things Crossfire like a Beast , too. Solid 90%+ performance yield when you pop in the second card.

I think I'm sold on the 6850 GPU, since everyone seems to love it. However I can't find the 960t new? Has it been discontinued?
Also please everyone recommend a CPU in the approximate price range, the 2600k and the like are totally out of my budget!!!
What I need is a $120-150 dollar CPU with a compatible MOBO.

Fry's still has 960's. Looks like it is in store only, the warehouse for mailorder must be out.

Unfortunately I currently live where there are no Fry's around. I used to live in Cali though and Fry's are awesome. It seems to me the closest thing to the 960T still in production is this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103924
Would this be a good alternative?
Also since it is a black edition it's multiplier is unlocked for easier overclocking correct?
What would be a good MOBO to use with these CPU?
Also is my case and PSU sufficient?
