New computer - help me balance it.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi ppl!!

I'm planing to buy a new PC and I need some advice.
This is what I have in mind:

Intel I5 3570 (non K version)
RADEON HD 8750 1Gb (Sappihre)
Kingston beast 8gb (2x4kit)
WD 1TB
monitor, keyboard etc is not so important..
My question is, is CPU and GPU balanced? What kind of PS I need for this configuration? Should I buy better cooling unit for CPU since I plan to play games and there could be a lot of heat for extended period of time. I have no plans for OC so what kind of MBO do I need? I was thinking on Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H, but I have plan to buy SSD in near future so maybe I need 2 SATA3 slot? What is the good MBO for this?

Tnx a lot for all suggestions, commenst and help! biggrin.gif

First off, if you're going to get a Radeon 7850, it needs to be a 2GB version. Second, if you're not going to OC, then you should get a Haswell CPU and 8-Series B85 or H87 motherboard (which have 4 or 6 SATA-III ports, repsectively).

I'll put together a ~$800 system (w/o KB / mouse / monitor) as a baseline to go off of:

I'm sure that OP mistyped HD7850. Anyone holding out for AMD's 8000-series would've mentioned doing so, and almost certainly wouldn't be thinking about getting a card in the x750 range.

^^ I also think so. Still it's best to ask the OP before assuming something...wink.gif
