might be going with this build, but taking out 500 gb hd for 128gb SSD , might not need the xigmatek. Can i get a few more opinions the FX-6300 over the I3 because he will be multi tasking playing like wow , minecraft and other stuff so he might need the extra core. Might take out the Corsair for silverstone.

Can you recommend a few more motherboard under 90$ for this build so i can see some option. I was thinking about this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280

EDIT: sorry i did not see the asrock motherboard the asrock mother board is ATX and case case is matx sop you will need a bigger case here is a another option for motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131872 read some reviews on both of them and see which one is better for your friend ssd would be good if you friend is using a another hdd for moveis music ect

that's my build

you won't need the xigmatek Gaia as you can overclock a bit on stock voltage and be fine.

but 20$ for a solid cooler is a good investment IMHO.

that motherboard I recommended is the only decent matx board besides the m5a88m EVO which really isn't available in north America.

that case is matx only, so that asrock board wont fit, I wouldn't expect a dramatically better overclocking experience with anything cheaper than
m5a99x EVO or GIGABYTE ud3, AND these are out of the budget.

an I3 will be better than the FX in wow and equivalent in mine raft and better in LOL when run at stock speeds.

if set it and forget it is the goal then get an ivy chip and an inexpensive b75 board. the rest of my build still applies.

if atx is your goal then haf 912, source 210/220, tempest 210, bitfenix outlaw or something similar would be nice, AMD you could go with a biostar ta970 atx board.

Those particular games just so happen to run better on Ivy, mostly because they only take advantage of 1-2 cores. If you decided that overclocking was something you wanted to do then you could overcome that with an AMD setup plus have significantly more performance when utilizing applications that are more highly threaded.

Anyhow, it sounds like 1155 socket is the way to go for your friend, so here is a few motherboards:

You could try and squeeze another $15 and go this route with an ivy i5

Or this will meet your budget and drop to a pitcairn 7870 which isnt quite as good as the Tahiti LE version, if you'd like to go with an i5. We upgraded the motherboard as well here:thumb:

Very nice build! , good find on those ram , not bad for 1866. Would you still prefer those over the blue gskills? Also for the MB whats a better board, the msi or the 69.99 asrock one? He doesnt have a mircocenter so i will be buying the corsair or the silverstone. He doesnt need the HD so that can take off some dollars. Also would that GPU PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card good enough for a little future proof? Really liking that intel build thanks! Let me know your answer for these question.

I edited my post half a dozen times, so refresh and look at it again first off. biggrin.gif

The PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card is roughly equivalent to the Nvidia 670GTX(which runs for $350). This GPU is the best for the $ right now, in your budget this is as future proof as its gonna get.

I assume you mean the PSU?

My choice here would be the AsRock personally, i like the board layout and more total Sata ports, plus more sata 3, and 2 full pcie slots as opposed to one on the msi

I couldnt find the link to these particular blue gskills, but if the gskills cost more or are slower for the same amount of money then I'd go with the patriot ones that I listed, as they are a great deal.

Thanks , so this is the final build right here correct? Can you give me the two option for the powersupply , another option for ram must be from an online source. Yeah I like Asrock i owned two of them myself so i'm pretty sure he would also.
