Thread Starter 
hi, i just sold it this morning, and im gonna build a new one soon. just trying figure out which one is better now!
post #22 of 30
Well for a new build this is what I could come up with:
CPU (i3 3220): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116775

Motherboard (Asrock Pro4 Z77): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157296

Memory (8GB Corsair Vengeance) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233218

Power Supply (Corsair 430W 80+ bronze): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

Graphics Card (Sapphire 7770): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011

Hard Drive (Seagate barracuda 500GB): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767

Case (NZXT source 210): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146076

I Chose these parts for several reasons. I chose the ram because it comes free with the motherboard and even though it's only one stick it's still quality stuff. The free RAM was the only reason I went with intel. The i3 3220 however is a great CPU.

Also, if you already have an extra hard drive laying around use that and upgrade the graphics card to a 7850 for added performance.

The Power Supply I chose is easily capable of running that setup with a 7850 graphics card, and from my personal experience with it I would say that it is a quality unit.

As for the other parts, they are all good quality and will make a nice balanced system. thumb.gif

thanks for you build, a mobo seems to be like a best deal ever right? it could be easily upgrade later, i think

and how would you guys think which is the best GPU around 150$>>>>>
post #25 of 30
$150 is an odd price point for graphics. The only thing I can think of that fits it would be the GTX 650 Ti. It performs a bit under the 7850 but it is priced well. The only issue is the fact that it has 1gb of ram but if you plan on upgrading in the future or if you play on low resolutions it shouldn't be a problem.

This one is on sale on newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130839

It's also a good value if you're into those games that it comes with in-game credit for.

I'm going to have to reccomend that you spring for a little extra money over the pentium and get an ivy i3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116775 That's the lowest end Intel cpu I would purchase for at the moment. With $150, I'd look around for a used GTX 480. I spent $120 on my 560 Ti last month, and in the $100-$200 price range, the last gen cards are still the best options.

i prefer getting a new card then, otherwise, thanks for ur recommendation, but i'm new in building a system so i don't wanna lose my chance while a get a used one without guarantee, im afraid of that. lol
post #28 of 30



Keep in mind these were done when the card came out. The performance on these cards have slightly improved since then. The green bar is probably what you'd be looking at in the way of performance.

yeah, i decided to get a giga hd radeon oc 7850 2gb, with mobo is asrock z77 pro 4 + 8gb ram, so i'm confused that should i get an G2120 cpu or go ahead with i3 3220? I'm considering that a g2120 will be bottlenecked with my GPU right?
post #30 of 30
get an i3 3220. Then you will have no real bottleneck.
