Assist with a $1200-$1300 build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need help tonight coming up with a $1200-$1300 gaming build, case only. The res. of the monitor is 1080.

Will be only using PCCG

Was thinking along the lines of;

Bitfenix Shinobi Case
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Cooler
AMD FX-6300
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 OC Edition 2GB
Western Digital Black 1TB
Kingston HyperX 8Gb 1600Mhz
ASUS M5A99FX-PRO-R2 Motherboard
Lite-On 24x DVDRW
Antec Neo Eco 620C PSU

This is $1302 + postage ($50)

Thoughts, input and changes most welcome thumb.gif

Only things I'd consider are:

getting an SSD - but these can be very expensive and can be done later.

GPU - If this isn't going to last a while then 2Gb is fine, but for futureproofing you'll want more. A HD7970 Ghz could provide similar performance but with 3Gb of memory. Alternatively, buy a second hand card (relatively cheaper) and wait for the HD9000 series in October.

RAM - the 1866 kit is $15 more.

Otherwise this looks like a very solid setup at your price point.

Is this setup for you, or something you're building for a friend?

If it's for you, then this setup (minus the GPU) is a sidegrade and a complete waste of money.

Buy the new GPU if you like, but I would leave the rest of it alone until there's something in that price range actually worth upgrading for you.

If, however, this is in fact for someone else, then it's a solid build for the price. I'm assuming these prices are in AUD?

The only thing I would look at would be the PSU. Although Antec is a solid PSU, you're not leaving yourself any expansion options with only 620W.

I would be looking at something a little more beefy if it was me.

It is for a friend.

A single HDD is needed for simplicity for them.

Yes AUD is used.
post #5 of 8
Is this build just for gaming and nothing else like streaming/video encoding at the same time? If it is then i would advise going intel with that budget unless you really want to go with amd.

Yeah mate that seems like a solid build, though as mentioned in quote 1, I would highly recommend getting a GPU with 3Gbs so that there is a bit of breathing room. Perhaps 7950 if money is an issue or as mentioned the 7970 for decent performance as well. 2Gbs isn't alot these days...

As for the SSDs, i wouldn't bother with them unless you are doing video and photo editing or spend alot of time on the desktop. The reason being, SSDs are generally too small to install too many games and you'd also want at least half the capacity free to allow for the wear algorithms to kick in (what i've been told). As such, i would highly recommend staying away from SSDs unless

a) you have the money so why not
b) you use the comp for things other then gaming mainly

Also, if you are looking to save on money, I'd recommend choosing a cheaper case as well (save ~$20 not a lot but can be spent on other things like ram or other parts)

My 2 cents

Cheers

P.S. you can save your parts onto a wishlist and make it public and link it here so that we can see all the parts together instead of searching for it individually.

AMD build

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/1cGBp

Intel build

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/1cGDE

Those builds include a 32-bit os as the 64-bit version was not listed

They also include an ssd. I know you mentioned about only having one HDD but an SSD will be a real benefit.
