post #31 of 81
The HD 5770 can run BF3 at high (1650x1050) with nice framerate(35-50) fine.And yes I tested it .This gpu cost about 70$.But it's better to get something like hd6790 wchich have 256bit bus (this card has slower gpu than 5770 but the higher bus yields in almost 50% FPS increase)

Hey guys,

I'd like to thank each and every one of you who contributed your advice and thoughts to the brainstorming of the new rig. You guys are AWESOME!biggrin.gif

To sum it up, here is my quick story:

I finally decided to put up for sale the first rig I ever assembled on Craigslist for $999 asking price. I quickly got a hit (the second day) and someone contacted me telling me they were very interested, we discussed a deal and so we agreed on $1020 for Sheldon, my G110 (Logitech gaming keyboard, paid $49 like 2 months ago for it), and my G5 (Logitech Mouse $49 original, bought it YEARS AGO!).
*Quick detail over the sale: I printed out my old invoices and highlighted EVERYTHING that I put into the rig (reason why I included the prices of the peripherals) and it came out to a total of $1047. With technological depreciation taken into consideration, I believe I made an awesome deal. Along with the cash in hand, the knowledge that I have acquired over the past year and four months with Sheldon are PRICELESS. I am very happy with everything.thumb.gif*
After the sale, I immediately got on Newegg to purchase the shopping cart I had already saved the night prior to selling him as we "confirmed" the deal via text for the following day. I reviewed everything twice, scrutinized my components (newegg reviews + others), and hit Confirm Purchase! Maxed is on his way home, the stork should be arriving this Monday if everything goes right:thumbsups lol. And so now I will show you the genetics of my new rig, Maxed, who I'll introduce later (hopefully by Tuesday?)

These are his parts:
photo Maxedinvoice_zps2514600e.jpg

I decided to go down the Deneb 965 route, it seems like there's a cult behind these things the way they have people following them! lol; and of course, I understand they are quite the performers being able to reach respective OCs; all for only $85! Next, I picked up a $55 mobo that has everything I need it to have and a bit more! (it allows for OC'ing, Supports up to 8gb of 1866MHz of which I can OC, a PCI 2.0 slot, and a couple other goodies + great newegg reviews!). Continuing my search, I went with the ever-reliable, Corsair Vengeance stix (1600MHz that can be OC'ed, and 8 gigs of it) for $55 (I had them for $50 but the sale ended the night prior to me selling Sheldon:thumbsdow). I saw the CX500 on sale for $30, I clicked the F**k out of it, 500wats 80plux bronze certified, yeah, I think so:yessir:. And last but definitely not least, I found this beauty on a heck of a sale! for $80 I picked up an MSI N650-MD1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 (like the name of it says, it's ready for OCing!kungfu.gif). So, these are the essentials of the rig (please take note that I did not include the following items which ppl may be confused about: No case, nor HDD as I have both of them laying around as extras). I did'nt include an optical drive because in my eyes, if I'm in NEED of a serious budget, an optical drive isn't as needed now-a-days since games can be downloaded almost entirely online.

I understand the invoice has other things included (4 Sata III cables, 2 120mm LED fans, the optical drive, a universal card reader from Rosewill, etc.) but those are for my convenience, and are not needed for a gaming rig that needs to be built under $350 (excluding Case, & HDD)

Mission Accomplished. All for a total of $305! ($45 headroom too!) cheers.gif

Corsair Vengeance most of the time come with terrible unoverclockable chips. I would return it for a G.Skill on Kingston instead

Although I appreciate your concern, in my prior rig I had the exact same RAM which never gave me a problem (I was even able to get it clocked to 17xxMHz!). I'm quite comfortable with these sticks and at the price they're at, I feel like I can't go wrong. (Please prove me wrong! I'd like to know more about the G. Skills, are they reasonably priced good sticks? I don't have much experience in this category.)

Skills, are they reasonably priced good sticks? I don't have much experience in this category.)
Very very well priced sticks. Vengeances depending on your luck can have different chips especially the nanya ones which are actually factory OC'd to 1600 CL9
1750 is in the ballpark for the lucky OC'able ones. G.Skill ARES sticks go up to 2133 CL11 (maybe) and as well as ripjaws.x and Z they go even further
Then there's the KHX Genesis 1600 sticks, they can OC up to 2133 CL11
