Looking for opinions on parts I should get that would compliment what I already have! Bang for my buck but not junk!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I had these parts with a AS ROCK MOBO but it ended up being a bust. Anyways here's what I have so far.
exhappysmiley.png
- Intel i5-3570k
- 2x Blue Corsair Vengeance Ram Sticks (4 gigs each)
- MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

These are the 3 componants I have so far. ^ "CPU, GPU, RAM"

If anyone could just give me their opinion on what MOBO,PSU,CASE,MEMORY to get that would be great! I'm looking to get the best bang for my buck. I'm not really trying to spend over 300 dollars on the rest of the components. Thanks guys!

PS I would eventually like to CrossFire the VGA at some point. Unless its pointless? Thanks again!

Specific parts too please! Maybe two options for each item! Thanks!

I know the GPU isn't the best but this is the stuff I aready have and I just want some opinions on what would go really good with these things. I want parts that will be compatible almost no matter what or parts that you know for certain are comp:devil-smiatible. I had trouble with a really crappy ASROCK mobo! Thx again guys!

The GPU isn't that terrible now right? It's ranked 45th it looks like lol. I mean this is the stuff I have still and I have to build around them so ya! thanks!

Thanks! I currently don't have a psu so that is one of the parts Im wanting opinions on. I had a Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 650W Continuous. It fried. I also had ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. It was complete garbage and wasn't compatible with 3 different cards.

Dont know how hard Z77 boards are to find but i swear by Gigabyte boards or Asus boards myself

As for PSU you dont need more then 450 watts either a Rosewill Capstone or Seasonic G will do you fine or a XFX Core Edition if you want cheaper

RAM again i swear by Kingston as i have never seen a dead or broken Kingston stick of RAM

Case no idea i dont know much about that

Ya I thought the Rosswell PSU was really good but I guess I freaking fried it. It seemed that way and my budy tried to hook it up with his rig and he says it wouldn't work. Who knows maybe he just wanted a new PSU but I'm pretty sure it was toast. I think it happened because I was working on it on some really shaggy carpet and it didn't have the sides on the case and I had 2 video cards hooked up. Idk really what caused it but It happened.

These are pretty solid boards IMO.

Asus P8Z77-V PRO
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H

Shilka can help you with a PSU.
Choosing a case comes down to individual preference.
Look for something that's well built, with good airflow, easy cable management and front USB 3.0

Just a thing you should know if you dont already Rosewill dont make the PSU´s they sell nor does Corsair Cooler Master and almost everyone else

The Hive you had is made by a OEM called HighPower and the Hive is not outright bad but its not great or high end either

By memory, do you mean storage? Like a hard drive/solid state drive ?
Only asking since you said you do have corsair ram (memory) already.

Ya I meant what is some good SSD that is out there right now. Something that has the highest speed but maybe not the highest price but that still isn't junk yuh know? Also how much would bee necessary.
