Salvage build for a friend " GTX570" and "AMD 955BE"

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I built my dad and my brother both 4690k builds this Christmas. I have their old parts, and I wanted to build a gaming build for an old buddy to play StarCraft 2.

Here are some of the old parts.

EVGA GTX570 270mm ish in length
AMD 955 BE
Motherboard(in closet and i forgot the model)
4gigs 1600 gskill memory (compatible)

Can you guys suggest a PSU, CPU cooler, and a cheap case. I want him to be able overclock the CPU, but the videocard will be stock.

Thanks and much appreciated.

Heatsink- Hyper 212 Evo good price/performance for light - moderate overclocking.
PSU- EVGA 600 B 80 Plus Bronze 600W PSU if you don't mind rebate, $45 is a good price for 600W Bronze rated. 600W would be enough for heavy CPU overclock and a moderate GPU upgrade down the road.
Case- Rosewill Galaxy-02 Gaming Case $35 with free shipping is a great price. Has front intake fan and ability to put a fan on the side panel for good airflow and looks to be somewhat decent to manage cables.

The D14 might be overkill depending on how much of an OC you will be going for, but it can always be reused when he decides to upgrade also.

That's really not helping as how much money you have will dictate what you get. You could easily put something workable together for 60-70 dollars but it wouldn't be ideal.

Right now, if you were buying today:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139059 Corsair c550m 39.99
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-TX3-RR-910-HTX3-G1/dp/B0028Y4S9K/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1420135663&sr=1-4&keywords=hyper+212+evo Hyper tx3 = 18.75

You can just get whatever cheap case you want. There really aren't any good deals on power supplies right now. The TX3 will do ok for mild overclocking on that processor. If you want to push it harder the next logical step is a 212 evo. The nzxt source is probably the best under 50 dollar case you can get at this moment, but really it doesn't matter if its just a salvage build. Some 25 dollar case from newegg will do just fine, but suck to build in. If you can wait a week or two and just poke around, you could probably save 20 bucks on a power supply and get a cx500m/evga 500b for 20 dollars (they always seem to go on sale for that much). Something like that seasonic that dopamin3 posted is great, but really seems like it is out of the scope of what you're trying to do. It just seems like a bit much.

Sorry, I had not really decided on the dollar amount until yesterday. I think between 100-130$ Is what I have decided on. I appreciate your help with this.,
