After failed Pre-build, FINALLY I BUILD MY OWN~! - Page 2  

post #11 of 128
Ok so here is what I came up with real fast. This build is infinitly better than what you posted. and under budget so you can add different items.

Pretty much agree with everything said here. I made the mistake of getting a 2600K. I don't need it. The i7 is much more appealing than i5 though. You spend about $300 on cards that honestly aren't worth it. With the $100 saved you could have got a gtx 670.

And I think I'm the only that is bothered by this,nut I'm pretty sure that's a corsair PSU tongue.gif

~1400 Dollars. On that? You can do wayyy better OP. Way better. You say you were embarrassed by your prebuild. So make a good home built. Not what your planning. Please. I beg you.

This looks great. I have to agree with the others the 3770k and 550ti's was no the best choice at first but you have refined it to what looks like it will be a great machine! You may want to switch the PSU to a more reputable brand.

The fact that it's Corsair doesn't make it any less average. Have a look at the jonnyguru reviews. Ask Phaedrus or Original Sin. This corsair is god mentality is just wrong.

Hey I understand that there are better graphic cards out there, but for the price of $135 per card. 2x550 ti can compete with even 570s.

Anyways, I could be wrong. The initial information I was leaning on were: http://www.nvidia.com/object/graphics_cards_buy_now.html

And yes the Asus DC Top edition matters, a whole lot. Check out some benchmarks:

No no that's not what I'm getting at lol. In the original post he put Antec GS 800. Corsair makes the GS 800 lol.

Thanks for that. I will use something like that for my parents build:

GPU: Asus DC Top 550 Ti
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K
motherboard: ASUS Intel Z77 ATX DDR3 2400 LGA 1155 Motherboard P8Z77-V PRO
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast TX V2 Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified High Performance Modular Power Supply CP-9020002-NA
CPU Watercooling: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler System - Antec
Case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Carrying Handle (SGC-5000-KKN1) -
Ram: Corsair Vengence 8gb (2x4)
Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST (Black)
Western Digital Cavair Sata III
Total: $1035

My parents really want this to be a budget one, but I wanted to make it a bit future proof. Any suggestions? I'm very much into Asus motherboards right now, but maybe a EVGA one with 4 pci express slots z68?

Regarding the Case, omg I just love the new case. Check it out. http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/Trooper/
Now I know I can save money on the case by getting a mid-tower but I want a full-tower just to be flexible in terms of watercooling and airflow.

why future proof the parents rig and not put much in to yours? especially with a higher budget for yours. are your parents going to be doing more intensive work on that rig than you are yours?

Great build, I will keep that in mind. The graphic card is just too expansive i think. for $400 I have to buy 2 or 3 cards. Its for both my own and my parents. I know I could save money by going mid-tower, but that wouldn't be enough to buy any 600s.
I'm using a AOC 20 inch monitor with 1600x900 LED monitor. So even 450 sli can max that monitor. So I think 550 ti sli is more than enough for my monitor.


And I would not go anything below a Corsair or Antec PSU. Even Thermaltake is questionable. XD
