Build my Café ! (Build my rig thread) *Updated*

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am starting a new internet café for games. Im gonna start with around 10 computers.

I thought about putting ~750$ per PC. my budget is pretty loose but I'd really wish each PC wouldnt go past 800$ not count monitor, mouse keyboard... etc.

When building a PC I came up with an AMD FX-6300, 8GB Ram (1 DIMM), ATI 7870 Graphics card, the mobo is an M5A78-LM ... The one with four DIMMS.... A regular 500w thermaltake PSU... A nice Zalman Z12 case... Came to about 750$ but I don't think it's the best deal I can find.

I'm very open minded, I don't mind switching to intel / nvidia either. I honestly just want the best bang for my buck.

Ideas:

AMD 8 core with lower end GFX
AMD APU
Intel i3 with higher end GFX
Intel i7 with lower end GFX
AMD dual core with higher end GFX
go cheaper on case and mobo get higher end CPU RAM GFX?

Most gamers play LoL, WoW, Dota 2, War3, CS:Go, But I still have to keep in mind some will want to play the higher end games too.
I need something stable that can run any game at least at mid settings @45 fps

Would an AMD A10 be enough? I wouldn't think so.
I've always gone AMD/ATI on my rigs so some insight on intel rigs /w price would be awesome.

All ideas are great help.

PS: I ORDER FROM NEWEGG.CA or DIRECTCANADA.CA OR ANY SITE THAT SHIPS TO QUEBEC CANADA

Looks good. You can save some money when you go for AMD builds.


I would keep an eye on those prices of 7950's (and 7870's) in the coming days/weeks. Maybe you get some great deals...

maybe consider 1600Mhz or higher RAM, if the price difference isn't too high.

I would stay away from that psu. I Suggest getting a nice gold or platinum psu. Keeps energy cost down and if you get a quality one you wont have to worry about it damaging other parts by giving unclean power. Also for your psu's try to find ones with long warranty's like this one here. http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=77496&vpn=120-PG-0650-GR&manufacture=eVGA&promoid=1145

The PSU you suggested is bleh (Gold certified does not mean quality! it just ensures a certain level of efficiency).
http://www.overclock.net/t/1395708/evga-power-supplies-information-thread/0_20

I'd suggest you to refer to the Recommended PSU FAQ:

Also for the keyboards you could buy from corsair's outlet sale which could save you some money plus their mechanical.
