My first build

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to this site and I'm building a PC.

Here it is
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=12539611

I haven't purchased any of the parts yet.

My budget is around 1k

Is there anything you guys recommend to change?

I mainly want to play TF2 with an FPS of like 80+ maxed
and maybe some newer games with a decent fps.

For that price you can get at least 1T

Very nice! I would change your hdd to an F3 1Tb though. What monitor do you have? If you don't have a monitor with a refresh rate under 80Hz, you won't need a gpu to play at 80fps.

samsung f3 1tb for speed and space

i5 750- hyperthreading is a bit overrated. i5 750 usually breaks 4ghz no sweat.

the motherboard isnt bad, but since you are going to use a gpu. mind as well go with p55 instead of h55

If you look a the build I'm going for (below), we're aiming for pretty much the same thing.
I went with the Msi 460 Cyclone though because it looks like it will stay nice and cool.
And I guess your motherboard is slightly better.
I'm not sure if I'll regret not going with the x58 motherboards, and cpus, but i figure by the time it matters there will be a new socket out probably.

As long as it plays the next wave of blizzard games i'm happy.

But if I was you I would get a fractal design R3 case, and a proper 650 modular power supply.
It's way more fun to build and looks better. Plus it'll have better airflow because all the wires are back routed.

I really don't plan on overclocking to much. I'll probably keep most of my stuff at stock.

definitely wouldnt spend 250 on a gtx 460. though mine is the 768mb version i only spent 145 on mine. If you wait you can find a open box 470 for under 250

If you don't plan to overclock then just get whatever is cheapest.
