[Build Log] Defiance College Computer

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is my second build log, and its only been a couple weeks since my last one. This computer is going to be used for Photoshop, dual monitor productivity, media center usage and possibly minor gaming.

Processor: i5 3570k ($215)
CPU Cooler: Antec H2O 620 ($55)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V open box ($140)
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB ($80)
HDD: Western Digital 320GB (left over from old computer)
RAM: G. Skill Sniper 8GB (2x4GB) 1866 ($45)
PSU: Corsair CX430 ($26)
Case: Cooler Master Centrion 5
Monitors: Dual Acer 22" screens (from old computer)

For my GPU I have decided to not use one for this build as it won't be entirely necessary.

I didn't really get that you mean by the $200 or $60 option.

I think maybe you should wait for a 6950 coming down the price after the 7850 imo.
