Best build with 550-600$ budget for a friend. - Page 5

Yeah, those would do. The one in said list that I'd pick is MSI's R7770-2PMD1GD5/OC because it's only $90 AR ($120 up-front), is pre-overclocked, and has a bunch of goodies included. Can't go wrong there!

EDIT: Just saw your question re: Sapphire's VAPOR-X 7770, it's not worth the price differential to jump up to that card just for slightly faster clocks.

If you're willing to spend $125 AR for a video card, you'd be better served with EVGA's GTX 650 Ti SSC 1GB at $130 AR. Otherwise, the MSI 7770 previously linked @ $90 AR is the way to go.

You should find a 7790 or 650Ti SE to be a good upgrade for your Gtx 460 and both should start selling in about 2 weeks time for around $150.

Your going to have a tough time getting better performance for less than $600 thumb.gif


6 core cpu on the only decent overclocking matx board available, 120mm cooler, 8gb ddr3 1600, 7870xt !!! (better performance than 660ti) and a silverstone case. The cx430 isnt the best psu, but it will handle this build fine.

650Ti is fine, but it would be better to wait for the new 7790/650 Ti SE cards that will start selling in 1-2 weeks. They offer more performance for a similar price.


Case: I like the Tempest 210 for $45

My pick, Ram combos with CPU for $13 saving, should have room to go to a 650Ti instead of the 7770.


skimp on the case, mobo, and lower the HDD capacity and spend what you save on a better GPU. Frankly, if you are not overclocking, the mobo is not as important as you think it is. Even the case, frig, unless you are dealing with 4 GPUs, the difference is not that big. People really get caught up in the wrong things when working in the budget department.

both the AMD and intel build are hard to choose from, having hard time picking from the intel build vs AMD for him. Whats a better cpu the intel i3-3220 vs AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor , not overclock or anything.

The i3-3220 is has greatly superior IPC and per-core performance (approx. 33% better), so it's the best choice for anything that requires no more than 2 cores. Since LoL only uses at most 2 threads to their fullest, it's pretty obvious which one to pick.

The FX-6300 is only better than the i3-3220 for very heavily-threaded applications that can actually use the 3 modules that it contains. The thing is that the usage pattern you outlined would not take advantage of said extra hardware, and thus would result in a lesser experience due to its lower per-core performance.
