First Gaming PC Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone!

I've just built/am building my first gaming pc, I've built a few computers before but this is my first gaming rig!

The bits that matter so far are as follows,

Gigabyte ga-z77-d3h motherboard
2 x 4Gb Kingston HyperX DDR3
Intel i5 3570k with hyper 612S cooler

No graphics card just yet, I have more important things to spend my money on at the minute, I'll get around to it soon though!

We need more than that, my friend. Please list all of your desired components.

Yeah i think you need a good 6xx video card to run everything on max, you can even get a i7 930 and spend the money on graphics and then you can call it a gaming computer, what you have listed is not for gaming.

I know I need a graphics card before it's a gaming computer, but after buying the motherboard, processor, cooler and ram I don't have enough for a graphics card. I have a mortgage, a car and a son that all come higher on the priority list than a graphics card, but it's still a gaming pc build, it's just not complete yet!

I don't have a budget for it really, as I get some spare cash I'll put it aside until I can get a decent graphics card, I'm looking at a hd 6970 at the minute, until then I can still play gta iv at decent resolution with not bad settings at around 25-30fps, not brilliant but not painful either!
