Working on a budget intel build, please point out the flaws it :) thank you!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've already have a decent computer I think (check sig). However I need one that I could take it to places (friend's house, etc). Since I didn't want to lug around a full tower case, I decided to build another comp which can run games (i play mostly borderlands, cod4, bioshock). btw interesting facts, all the prices for each components just happen to be $6X.XX.


Case: Coolermaster Scout - $69.99 shipped from newegg (it's a nice looking case and for this price i couldn't resist)

Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro - $68.50 shipped from a member from here (this is a great board for overclocking i'm assuming since many uses it)

CPU: Intel E5200- $64.50 shipped from newegg (i've read that this cpu is great for overclocking so why not? it's only $64.50)

Hard Drive: WD Black 1tb - I have a spare one from my first build (price i bought it for in June was $99.99 and it's still the same price on newegg today)

Video Card: XFX GTX 260- Sli was nonsense for the games I played so I'm
splitting it up and using it on this one.
(I didn't notice any difference when using SLi, maybe i'm blind but hoping there won't be any bottleneck in this build)

Memory: Corsair 4 gig DDR2 800Mhz - $69.99 shipped after rebate from newegg (can't go wrong with corsair)

Power Supply: still thinking, prob another corsair

OS: Windows 7pro 64bit - student program which was free for me

Looks great so far!

But why do you need such a good case, for future upgrades?

Also you could go AMD and lessen the cost of the CPU+Mobo.

for the PSU, get the Corsair VX550...great quality, and cheap since it's for a budget build

The case has a handle which was one of the reasons why I summoned it. I couldn't find any good looking mid ATX case without a handle, unless it's a microATX case. Also after looking at the Scout member thread here, I pulled the trigger.
