Need Help On Build!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I am new to these forums so i hope you can help me out!

This will be my first pc build..... it is a budget (under $900) gaming build.

Can someone check to see if these parts are compatible and if there is any problems?
If there are any alternatives that are better/cheaper, please let me know!
I would like to run games in high quality. These games include Bad Company 2, Split Second, Left 4 Dead 2, Crysis 2, GTA, and future games.
This computer will also be used for daily usage such as video and net surfing.

That totals to about $843......


Will 4 gigs of RAM be enough? Is the stock CPU cooler enough? Is the power supply enough? Not trying to spend any more money though.....

Is there anything I am missing????

Will all these parts work together?

Is this system fast?

PLEASE RESPOND AND HELP ME OUT!!!!!


THANKSSS IN ADVANCE!!!!

Yup, everything there looks good. Should be a pretty solid system. If you can, spend an extra $50 and grab one of these. That will allow you to OC that chip much higher than the stock cooler would, and it should still keep the rig >$900 or close to it.

Thank you so much for the quick response!
That heatsink is a little too expensive considering my budget and the fact that I need to buy a monitor. (monitor included, budget it $1000) if there is a cheaper alternative that is still better then the stock cooler, please let me know! thanks!

I'm not sure of anything cheaper, that was the cheapest cooler that I know was good. Just keep the stock one for now, then upgrade when you have the cash for it. I've OC'd my Athlon II X2 from 2.8 -> 3.6 on the stock cooler (dropped it to 3.4 for the summer).

Ahh thank you. yes I will keep that in mind for future upgrades. Is the 600w Power Supply enough to power my graphics card? is that card good for gaming? How does it compare to a gt 220? is the ram enough or should i get 6 gig.....

No problem.

That PSU is more than enough, the ATI 5XXX cards don't use much power, which is good. The card will be great at gaming, and you can upgrade to XFire down the road if you need to as well (PSU should be able to handle it). That card will be much better than a GT220, no questions asked. 4GB is enough for todays stuff, maybe in another year or so will 6 GB be useful for gaming.

The 600W should be fine. If you plan to ever do Crossfire then you might want something a little more powerful. 4G of ram is fine.

Honestly, if you don't want to spend too much money, and still need a monitor, don't worry about an aftermarket cooler to overclock. I'd say getting it all together and running comes first, then in the future, you could always get something.

Also, just pointing it out, none of the links work (but at least you wrote what each item was).

@ airplaneman thank you soo much! The airflow should be fine right? I already have a pretty good PC for Multimedia use and Video editing/rendering. It is a xps9000 from dell with 8 gigs of ram and i7 with the gt 220. Game performance is a not so great but perfect for multitasking! another question, can i get 3 displays and run eyefinity off that card?

4 gbs of ram is usually enough for most gamers so i would stick with that and just set the timings better on them, as for the card the Sapphire 5770, its good card and the 600w should be good as along you dont plan go going xfire
