Need help for a 1.000$ gaming PC.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So here's the deal. My PC is about 7 years old now, and I can hardly game anymore, so I need a new machine. When I bought this one back in 2007, It was around 1.300$, and I feel 7 years is quite fine as far as PC-s go.
My budget is around over 1.000$, and what I want is to be able to play games at 1080p at max settings. I will be ordering from a store in my country, and I'll be building it myself.
Thanks in advance.

If that helps.

Any re-useable parts from old build?
Any amd/intel/nvidia preference?
Are you going to be overclocking?

For anyone else taking a crack at this, prices for him seem to be around 30% higher than USA after the exchange rate on most items.

I would like a fresh new PC, but I may be delusional. I have a 550W Fatal1ty Power Supply that I bought about a year ago, might be reusable, not sure. My ram is DDR2 I think, might be too old, and I have a 500 GB Samsung Hard-Disk. Everything else I want to replace entirely. I also think that my case is too small, as I've seen that newer machines need far bigger cases - It's a Foxconn TLA-570 Case.
I've never really invested in what's best as far as AMD/Nvidia/Intel goes, so whatever is best I assume. I've had all of these components at least once in my lifetime and besides a GeForce card that would overheat, that was my fault for poorly investing in it, I have seen no major difference.
I've also never overclocked. But I wouldn't say no, depending on how safe it is. I was always scared that It might just bust some components.

Intel 4670
GA-H87-HD3
Kingston Hyper-x Blu (8GB)
WD Blue (1TB)
Corsair Carbide 300R
Super Flower 530W
Sapphire 270x Dual-x

3245 Lei total

I have no idea what the quality of these PSU brands are so I went with overkill in wattage. You could probably reuse your old PSU. Motherboard is crossfire-capable so you can add in another 270x down the road if you want.

Seems pretty solid. He said he had a 550w fatality power supply so there's no need for a newer one. I would put the extra money on the gpu to reach a r9 280 or maybe a GTX760.

EDIT: R9 280 doesn't seems to be released yet.

The 280 has been released, it just hasn't really made its way out of NA yet, same with the r7 265.

Sorry I dont think you can get a computer for $1.00 wink.gif

Ya I have no idea about that super flower. The realtek database has nothing on it, the freaking superflower website has nothing on it. I dunno, I trust that OCZ more at this point.
