$1500 or below - New PC - HELP - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Post number 2 is overkill and surpass is budget by a good 400$ not to mention he said he is building a computer from scratch which mean he most likely need a screen and keyboard mouse speaker. You can most likely tell that he wont overclock so the nzxt kraken is a huge not needed.
How i know he wont overclock soon ? Hes asking on a forum to random people to build is computer. If he want to overclock in the future he would then buy the parts he really need.


Just made a quick one on newegg

cpu 2500k = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072
$224.99

Mobo asus formula 5 = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131854
$279.99
imo this mobo is overkill for you and you will most likely not use 60% of it but since u said u want it bad i am letting it there.

haf 912 = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233
$59.99

gtx 670 evga =http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130782
$379.99
come with borderland 2 and assassins creed 3

PSU = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194094
$89.99

ram = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314
$47.99

heatsink = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
$34.99

hard drive 1Tb = http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533
$109.99

Total = $1,227.92 with taxes

I did not include a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speaker. I gave you a 280$ gap in your budget to choose those if you need them.

You may want to look and see if you have a Micro Center around you to pick up your CPU. Micro Center also has CPU/MB combo deals you could easily get a i7 3770k from them and stay in budget.

^^ A 7950 is a far better value and I would look at the Rosewill Capstone for the PSU but it looks good otherwise. thumb.gif

thanks guys!

from what i've read, i came up with this...

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xFRT



i still didn't pick a cpu cooler because i'm not familiar with it, do i need one? if yes, can anyone pick one for me?

one more thing, there's a compatibility note. and it says, "Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports."

can you suggest a case for me, or can i just ignore this message?

please feel free to suggest any change from my selections if you think it would make my money's worth.

I would get the cheaper (after rebate), better, and modular Rosewill Capstone 650M PSU instead of the one you picked.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

And don't worry about the USB thing, that just means the case doesn't have front panel connections for USB 3.0, which is only a problem if you need them. The motherboard does have back panel USB 3.0 ports, so you'd still have access.

If you want a cheap cooler, get the Hyper 212+ EVO, or if you want something more powerful, you can try the Phanteks or the NH-D14:

Those 7950 would be overkill , unless he wants to run tripple monitors or something!
You will be fine with a single 670 for a good 2 years minimum smile.gif

thanks again in advance...

Not really any significant difference between the Z77X-D3H and the Z77X-UD3H, the UD3H has the 2 oz copper board (but that doesn't have much practical difference) and DisplayPort. The Z77-D3H (no X) only has a single PCIe 3.0 slot, and so is not a good choice (for resale reasons, if nothing else). eSATA is just a way to connect an external drive through SATA instead of USB, if you don't have external drives it's not a big deal.
