Looking for a Intel Build for Customer

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
OK heres the deal. I had a nice lady come to work and we got to talking about me building a rig for her (well for her son actually) for playing World of Warcraft. I dont have any experience with Intel builds and actually have gotten out of the desktop scene and running on my sig Notebook. Anyways I told her around 700-800 dollars should be able to build her a decent rig for WoW. Anyways Im looking for some people with some experience with building budget Intel gaming rigs. I need really everything from a Case to HDDs. Thanks to all that help and as always Rep to those who take the time to help!

Well with my build there you can still squeeze in a monitor and be within budget
post #7 of 10
Check the guide in my sig.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
<$800 Build
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CPU: Intel E7200 -$130
CPU Cooler:Tuniq Tower -$50
Mobo:GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L -$90
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 800MHz -$85
Hard Drive: Western Digital 500GB AAKS -$85
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W -$100
GPU: EVGA 512-P3-N800-TR GeForce 8800 GT 512MB -$160
Case: Cooler Master 690 -$85

You can take out teh Tuniq, and get the CM Centron 5 with PSU for $60. That would save you $150.

Edit: Take a look at my $600 build and then add teh E7200 to it and a Acer 22in monitor for $200 and get a 8800GS.


I wanted to point out one otehr thing: RAM will make the computer seem fast for the average user. Putting 4GB in their will make it seem insanely fast, even if its paired with a E2xxx cpu. Dont forget about a moderate overclock too. Take the E7200 to 3.0GHz and call it good.

Don't forget about an operating system.....

Looks like a good build but he can get away with a cheaper processor and a cheaper board to offset the cost of buying Windows and still wind up under $600 plus tax and shipping. A 21xx series is more than what WOW needs coupled with a budget mobo.

How bout this for a cpu.

And this for a mobo.

the 430W antec EW seems to be pushing it a bit... u might want to consider this OCZ StealthXstream 600W ($54.99 after rebate)
