Gaming Desktop for around $1100 - Page 2

Hello Joshbones,
Welcome to OCN!

Processor- Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K ($229.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

As mentioned, this is not compatible with the Z87 chipset or 1155 socket. Switch this to either an i5-4670K if you want to overclock, or an E3-1230V3 if you are not overclocking. Or an E3-1220V3 if the Hyper-threaded "30" version is too expensive. The i5 series comes with an iGPU, which you won't be using, so shouldn't pay for unless you have to (buying K models for overclocking forces the matter). The E3 series often offers better value outside of the overclocking chips for builds with discrete GPUs.

RAM- G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM ($85.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231445

This is an excellent choice of memory, either for overclocking or not, as it should have overclocking headroom with looser timings and more voltage to play with, while still offering a stable good performing easy to set XMP profiled speed/timing for quick setup when it is not overclocked.

Consider a combo special with this kit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1568662

Motherboard- ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard ($89.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157370

This Z87 board has been stripped of most of what makes the Z87 platform "good." With a weak VRM configuration (not ideal for overclocking) and no SLI support, this board may as well have been an H87 chipset. The Extreme3 is usually only a few bucks more, but really does justice to the Z87 in the budget price class with double the VRM configuration and SLI support. Spend the extra $20 if you want the board to actually be able to do the things that the Z87 chipset offers. (IMO it doesn't matter if you want to overclock, or have SLI support, or both, you pretty much have to make that $20 step up at minimum).

Also, if you don't plan on SLI support for this rig, there's probably not much need for anything larger than a microATX build. Taken a step further, if you're only planning on 1 GPU and just need Wifi, there are ITX boards with built-in Wifi that would also work, allowing you to shrink down the size of the case considerably.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130932

This is a good choice from a great name in GPUs. The next "batch" of the same card is available in the combo special above with the RAM kit you're interested in, either way works fine.

The logical step "down" would be to the R9 270X, if you wanted to shave ~$30-40 off the price, the logical step up would be to the GTX770, if you could spring for more. (The competing R9 280+ series is priced out of it's competitive range for gaming right now)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152042

If you're not planning to overclock or scale the system to a dual GPU, then the best value at this price point would be the RoseWill Capstone 450W. Raidmax is the flea market of computer hardware. Avoid when possible. (They have a few cheap but entertaining looking cases that can be worthwhile if looks are more important than build quality but I would never trust them with a PSU).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146070

This is an area of personal preference. I will say that when the novelty and fun of a "flashy" case wear off, you're usually left with a lot of flimsy plastic that busts and breaks over the years. Cases with extravagant exteriors often end up looking trashed and effectively being trashed over the long haul. If you're not planning to SLI this machine, I really think it's worth looking at small form factor builds as they are much more portable, less likely to be damaged in transit, and simply take up less space on or in the desk.

Cooling- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan ($34.99)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

This is the best performing 4-pipe 120mm traditional rifle CPU cooler under $40 on the market. It's also the most commonly recommended, and the most boring wink.gif

For only ~$10-15 more, the Zalman 9900 Max (B version = blue LED) offers the sort of excitement level in the looks department that you might be after to match the case you are interested in. It's also a strong performing cooler that will have no problem handling any practical levels of overclocking possible on this class of build.



I can offer build ideas if you are interested.

Best of luck with the build,
Eric

JoshBones,

Here's a nice non-overclocking non-SLI-path newegg based build that focuses on high quality parts and cool/quiet operation. It is a microATX build with a handsome white/black theme.

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($249.99 @ Newegg)
This is an i7 haswell, clocked to 3.3ghz, minus the iGPU. Sold as an "E3" series Xeon, a very powerful CPU for gaming or any demanding workload.

CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling ACFZI30 74.0 CFM Fluid Dynamic Bearing CPU Cooler ($39.99 @ Newegg)
This will run at the lowest fan speed pretty much all the time. Set it in quiet mode and enjoy the silence.

Motherboard + PSU COMBO: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H + Capstone 450W 80+ Gold Semi-Modular ($120 @ Newegg)
Basic B85 board done right. Heat-sunk VRMs. No frills just a basic reliable board that will work fine for a traditional gaming machine with a couple HDs, a single GPU, and a stock clocked high end CPU.

Save $20 in combo with the modular version of the capstone PSU, one of the finest PSUs in this price class. Don't worry about the wattage, this machine is never going to draw more than ~300W under worst case conditions anyway, so this has plenty of headroom for comfort.

Memory: G.Skill ECO 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($81.99 @ Newegg)
Set it to 1600 speeds @1.5V. Fantastic quality memory that can get the most out of a non-overclocking setup.

Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Single platter WD black FZEX. Top performing 1TB drive, period. 5 year warranty, white/black color theme. Good drive for a system that is going to forgo the SSD in favor of performance elsewhere. These are wicked fast by mechanical standards.

Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($249.99 @ Newegg)
There's nothing wrong with the EVGA option but this one is $20 less expensive and the GigaByte Windforce models are very competitive for cool/quiet operation.

Case: Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($109.58 @ Newegg)
A nice quality case with just enough flare to be handsome but geeky-fun. Fractal is known for making solid cases with damped characteristics (they don't "ring" like cheap cases). Also, this case has an integrated adjustable support mechanism for the CPU cooler. A really nice feature that is lacking in most cases.

Optical Drive: Lite-On IHAS324-07 DVD/CD Writer ($19.99 @ Newegg)

Total: $961.50 SHIPPED. No mail-in rebates.

I tried to leave enough budget for an OS and Wifi Card. (not included in list above).


If you'd like an example of an overclocking build with an SLI upgrade path instead, let me know, I'll be happy to edit one in.

I would get a any other PSU than that. Rosewill Capstone, Cooler Master V700 if your budget allows. If the PSU dies then no PC lol

Sorry about that redface.gif

Its a group regulated FSP Aurum so voltage regulation flatout sucks

Think it has some of the worst voltage regulation i have ever seen on a big brand name unit

Which is why its so cheap its not very good

On the other hand besides the crappy voltage regulation its not that bad ripple is alright and so is overall build quality

Word for it is mediocre and overpriced but its not that crappy you can find far worse
