building a new rig

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
Well I have my current rig about 6 years already(with some upgrades), and I think its time to get a new one.biggrin.gif
I am going to keep my case,PSU, and my ssd hard drive.
my budget is around 600-700$ including a new mouse and keyboard.
It is mostly a general use computer, little gaming, little sound and videos editing , but mostly surfing the web.
I will probably order everything from newegg.

Thank you smile.gif

At certain budget points a Xeon is better then a locked i7, while having the same features, and usually a higher clock.

Spend a little more and get a 760, other then that pretty good.
