First budget Gaming build :D - Page 3

post #21 of 49
Thread Starter 
Oh man i leave for 2 hours and come back to this :O thank you all. Would it be better to go with amd? I mean i have never owned one so i don't know much about them. I won't be doing anything video editing wise, but it would be nice to have this future proofed. I was almost certain on going with intel, but now you guys opened up a whole new door
Thanks for the help. I think i will go with a 5770 and CF them down the road.

you could CF on the 520w psu.. feel free to change the case and add a cooler

Now i understand not getting a rosewell power supply, as they are complete garbage. However when it comes to a budget build, cases are one of the places where it's alright to skimp in order to get better components.

I myself got a rosewell case for my sig rig, and no it's not the best case in the world, but it sure as hell isn't a terrible case either. It beats some cases i've owned that have cost 3-4 times as much.

Edit: If you're on a budget, AMD is the way to go.

I suggested an Antec because that particular model has great value. The Antec NEO ECO 520C is another great choice, which should also handle a crossfire setup just fine.

First of all thank you guys for all the help on this. Now i think i am settled on a few things. Would that psu be able to run CF 5770? Also would it be better to get a 465 and try to unlock it or run CF 5770.

That Antec NEO may be a HEC rebrand-Antec Earthwatts are good.Most Rosewill PSU's are second-rate but this one has been proven to be an excellent unit,and is highly recommended.Don't just go by the name when judging PSU's
Rosewill Green Series RG630

for the HDD-the Samsung F3's can't be beat,unless you go to SSD's or Velociraptors-get either of these-
Samsung F3 1TB
Samsung F3 500GB

-$22.00 Combo$159.98

Grand Total:$395.94, forgot dvd drive, so add another $25.

Plus 15 dollars shipping, you're at $440 for a complete system that is pretty rippin. for 4gb of ram, you'd be at about $480. The case comes with a 480w psu.

And if you're gaming you'll want to spend a few bucks on a ergonomic keyboard and gaming mouse. With the money saved you could probably get a nice 22-23" monitor and a 2.1 speaker system.

Or just go to best buy and get one of their all in one packages, then swap out the psu and put in a graphics card. That's basically what I did, they have good prices for what they give you, just gotta clear all the nonsense from the pc.
