So, here what I 've decided.:CPU
Intel i5 3570 processorGPU
HD 7870, im not sure if I should choose the HIS version or the Asus or Sapphire etcRam
Either and intel or a Gigabyte board.
Im not entirely sure if I would be doing SLI/Crossfire, will my CPU be able to handle 2 cards? Suggest some board models please.EDIT
Whichi size should I choose? Atx? Micro atx? whats the difference? how many slots do they have? etcOpticle Drive
Already have a Asus DVD driveHDD
A 500GB Seagate HDDPower Supply
A 500watt corsair PSU? Will it be able to handle the parts? Im not overclocking. Most likely wont be doing SLI/Crossfire
Thanks in advance, and I wont be buying parts online (amazon, newegg etc) since im not in the US, so please only give links to show the product and specs, not for combos and deals.
I see you have PC gamer caption under your nickname...so i guess you are budding gamer or want to experience gaming at budget of yours.
Make no mistake 500-600$ is good budget to build a gaming Pc if you compromise on few things while maximise on others.From my experience of PC gaming i would say GPU matters a lot....In your initial post you have not mention games or usage of your new Pc so i take liberty of thinking it would be daily use rig with Gaming taking most of your time.
If you have not decided on parts then kindly go for AMD 7950/ GTX 760 as basic GPU depending on which ever is cheaply priced in your country and honestly this will last you for atleast 3 years if upgrade itch doent bite you
For CPU i would say if money was not problem then Intel i5...or else Fx8320.....people will tell you pro's/con's of both this processors but believe me after building two back to back rigs of FX and i7 i can say for playing games like BF3/Cyrsis3/Metro or first person shooting(FPS games) you will not feel much difference from Intel or AMD but MMO will be badly played by AMD hence compromise of needs.....plus including daily usual random pc usage will be fine on both.....you will see difference only when you open benching applications.But when price is 50-60% less you can compromise on that and buy a big better GPU.I would say save a bit more for cpu that can be overclocked as it will be benefit you in future when need of more processing power is desired.
AMD rig - FX 8320 + Asus 970Evo ( Single GPU ) / 990Fx ( for SLI/Cf )
Intel rig - i5 3570k + Mobo / i5 4670k + asrock ext 4 mobo ( I would pick haswell as it new and can OC on cheap boards due to electrical changes put on cpu die )
Common components : -
Kingston/Samsung SSD 120
WD blue 1TB
Gskill / Corsair / Kingston1600Mhz rams 8 Gb kit
Case any entry level case from CM / Corsair
Seasonic /Corsair PSU
CPU cooler - buy when you think temp's are going to melt things.
If budget crosses then buy SSD later on but dont skimp on quality PSU.
I see you are from Pakistan , can you buy from UAE ? As prices their would be way cheaper than in your country.
