HELP!!!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm new to this thread and am thinking of building my own computer using the cooler master HAF XB case but I'm confused on what a good setup would be for it.. i have a set budget of under $900, and i found a store that would support my budget................................................ http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=25_31&products_id=22433

I would preferably buy everything hear including the case

if any one is willing to help it would be much appreciated

Thanks:thumb:

thanks man What would you recommend for a beginner. the intel or amd?
post #6 of 15
I would personally say that they have similar learning curves so both would be good. If you plan on overclocking look into a more powerful power supply. I put one on the list that was more then enough for the setup but with overclock it may be pushing it.

Also if you are going to overclock the CPU get a better heatsink. Even if you keep the stock one IMMEDIATELY take off the stock thermal paste and put your own on.

I find that AMD has a very good price point for the performance that you get ( + you get bragging rights among the less technologically minded for having 8-cores tongue.gif )
I used AMD for my first sig rig and I'm planning to use AMD again for my massive proposed build, my old one still serves me well. It's also because I like supporting the smaller companies.

If I were you I would feel inclined to get just a HDD and put the extra $100 for the SSD towards getting a better graphics like this one:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1373&products_id=21182

My reasoning is that the SSD will make your system boot faster feel snappier and load game levels faster but It won't make the framerate any better in the game.
