$650 budget gaming pc, please comment as first build

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Would gladly take any advice, just do not flame me for being nub. I know full well I am.
I will only use the pc for World of Tanks, and surfing. World of tanks currently does not support multi core and plenty of debate about crossfire. i do nto really plan to overclock, mainly concerns about messing up and hardware longevity. I do not plan to play on the highest graphics settings.
Already have mouse, keyboard and OS. $650 budget is unmovable up, as i am really 50 over what i wanted to spend.

will gladly take any advice, and thanks a lot in advance.

You may want to go with the AMD APU. What you have would work fine, If you don't mind I'm going to suggest this. Look into it a little and see which one you think fits better.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280 CPU $129.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131883 Mobo $124.99

Everything else should be fine, but that processor will save you a few dollars, you will get a little more CPU performance, and only a little less performance graphical wise.

I would really try to push the budget to allow a 7850. It is a big step up. thumb.gif

I just put this together (although it does require use of mail in rebates)
If you want windows 7 64-bit OEM, delete the motherboard, and then look it up again, there's a combo for it where you save $15 when you bundle it with the operating system.
If you want it to $600 bucks without OS, just delete the SSD.





EDIT: Crap... didn't see that you still needed a monitor... nevermind...

I got $710 on mine,,

using your case, psu and monitor and cd drive

Personally, i think you should ditch the traditional hdd to save money and gain performance,, or use your old hdd as extra storage,, and go with ssd. if you took off hdd and kept ssd,, it would be 640.

Mobo: $60 ASrock AM2 mobo with sata 6g and usb 3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157331
cpu: $110 amd trinity apu quad core:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113281
RAM: $50 gskill 2x4gb @ 2133 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231468
SSD: $90 Samsung 128GB SSD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163
hdd: $70 1.5tb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148337
GPU: $120 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161402

total: $500,, ,your case, psu, cd and monitor are $210.

take out the hdd to save money,, or get ram thats $10 cheaper.... (i wouldnt)

the advantage with this build for you is this.
you can combine the integrated and discrete graphics and probably get 7850 performance from your GPU+igpu.
The ssd,, if you dont know,, is a game changer,, and i would hate to see anyone build a new PC without one,,, dont! just get it!
It does not affect game performance (levels load quicker) but your day to day experience will be vastly improved.. pc will restart in 30 seconds,, ready to use.

fyi, of my two main builds,, one of them is a phenom ii with a 7750 and I play BF3 pretty decently with it (very similar to what I recommended),, so you will be fine,, just not at enthusiast level.

The PSU could be changed too, but at $40,, youre good with a 500w. you will only use <250W prob though.

I am pretty sure Trinity can only be hybrid xfired up to a 6670. I do not think a 7770 will work.

Typically if you order it all from one site the shipping is cheaper. If you price it all out on newegg it might save you some on shipping.

You could also skimp on the GPU since you are only playing world of tanks and get:

Saves you some money after you add a monitor i think.

I'd look at a 2500K from Microcenter. $159, worth saving a little extra IMO.

I could not find a reference,, but Id bet money it could. One thing,, it is 7000 series igpu and 7000 gpu. llano i dont think can,, but trinity is 7000 series. The AMD support page only shows the crossfire (not hybrid) options and does show compatible chipsets. (which included intel chipsets, so the chart was clearly for crossfire and not hybrid.)

What I got from Toms hardware. was that the 74xx series and below dont do hybrid.. but it did show a list with 7450- 7670 being paired, and only the 7450 not working. (was nothing definite said, so idk)

but, I have looked for 20 minutes trying to prove you right,, and I cant.

AMD sites just say you can pair with a discrete gpu,, and Im gonna say a 7000 apu, can pair with a 7000 gpu. but a 6000 apu could not pair with a 7000 gpu.
