Help me build a great computer?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So i'm trying to build a really good computer. I have about $1200, but i may be able to go up to 1300. All this is going to be used for is gaming (and a lot of it.)

I do however want and Intel i7 2600/2700k and a radeon 6970/7970. I know this will be about $800-900 just for those 2 parts. Is it possible to use the 300~400$ to fulfill the rest of the pc?
I don't need a SSD or anything fancy.

Also, if you have another builds you'd like to show me that would be fine.

no it's not. you need a fairly good mobo for core, good psu, at least some hdd, not to mention case, keyboard, mice, screen, ram.

With your budget and items you want you wont be able to get most of things, mobo alone will be about 200$.

question is, you tell us price for your gear or for brand new, if you talk about your gear there is no point in stating that you can make bulid for this money with USED parts.

Also what worries me is your cpu very high oc. You also stated on some post that you can't run it for too long on this core, i suppose stress test ramps around 90's which is pretty much risking for buying damaged stuff.

everything is under warranty
oc is kind of a joke, I met I can't run it for long at 7ghz
I still use this build works great
I run 4.5ghz CPU [Stock Voltage]
1866mhz cl9 ram [Undervolted]

Also, if you have another builds you'd like to show me that would be fine.

Let me get this right. You want to spend $800 on last years technology and leave yourself only $400 for the rest of the build? jThe CPU is fine, but

You do realize that the 69XX and 79XX series have been replaced (or put more accurately) superceded by R7 270/280/290 video cards right?

And this question of whether it's possible to finish the rest of the build with $400 should be self-explanatory. Go on places like Newegg or Amazon or similar; find the cheapest price you can find for the following components:
MB/RAM/PSU/HDD/PC case.

and then you tell me ...whether it is possible or not.

And what about the OS?. Do you have that taken care of already or do you need to fit that into your $400 budget? If you're budget doesn't allow for a new Windows license, are you willing to go with Linux?

And what is so special about that 2700K processor? Newegg is selling the i7-4770K for roughly $40 less. Is there really such a huge difference between the 2 CPUs that you're willing to spend $40 more considering your limited budget? The i7-4770K processor can actually be had for much less. MicroCenter listed this CPU for $250 (on sale) last year - it happened twice. What, no Microcenter near you? No problem. Call stores like Best Buy or Staples and have them price match it. Yes it's possible - I've done it. No problems.
R7 280 video card (roughly $330 from Newegg)

Those two components add up to $630 right there. ($580 if you are willing to wait for a sale to come along as I explained above). Even if you bought these 2 parts RIGHT NOW from Newegg, you would still save money. Compared to your build, it's almost $200 cheaper and you could use that savings to put towards the rest of the parts.

Furthermore, it is simply crazy to have a budget of $1200 (which is a pretty decent budget actually) and come out of the entire deal without a SSD in your build. You may think that they are "too expensive" for you - but they are continuing to come down in price and you might be surprised to see that you can score some good deals out there.
