I agree with him, in the future this would be a good idea...just remember to take everything with a grain of salt....i would tell you to go with intel...i have had all intel except one....however others would tell you to go with AMD and have never had intel...so its ultimately up to you...We would be able to help you find better deals to....i have never seen a place that has found better prices then asking on here...We could have taken care of the harddrive for performance and the memory being able to max your performance there for little price difference by using all three channels....just trying to help...

Your doing alright man, wrist straps can be a good one off buy.

My first gaming rig was a Dell XPS so you are definitely going in the right direction! Post pics when it's assembled!

Looks good! If you're using a 19" monitor the 5770 should be plenty of power for now. I would have put more into the cpu/ram like you did.

Can't wait to see pics when it's all assembled!

Some of you guys need to lighten up a bit...his build is not that bad...yes it could use a little adjustment or be a tad better...but it still looks pretty descent...so dont rain on his happyness...


I would run the cpu at stock speeds for now until you know how well your cooler works...have fun building...its a fun time putting stuff together.. ask lots of questions if you have any

I am curious how many people buy all the parts for their builds at the same time.

I personally am really big on finding deals, so I tend to buy my new rig components over several months, starting with mobo+cpu.

I wanted a computer, did research for a couple days. Bought it. It all came in at the same time (thanks Newegg!) and I built it. No wrist strap, did it on carpet. Been running like butter ever since, with a few minor upgrades.

Of course there would be stuff i'd do different, but I'm happy with it overall

But this isn't a new rig, it's [i]a]/i] rig.

If you were burgled tomorrow and lost you rig(s), would you replace it in one go?

I bought everything in one go the first time. Since then it's been upgraded to the point that only, ummmm, okay, it's a new rig



@OP - enjoy. Ignore the naysayers in the thread. You've done alright and I'm sure you'll enjoy your new system.

When all the stuff arrives, make sure to ask questions on OCN regarding anything. Better to ask a simple question than break a new component!

Welcome.

@ OP: I really like this build, good work . Oh and remember to post pictures when it's built!
Well sort of i mean an i5 760 is a Really strong CPU already as it is, but i see your point but he should have spend 20 more bucks and gotten a 6850 what a waste.. Next time resEARCH.

Trolls all over the place in here.. Not a bad rig at all for a budget build, lots of room to upgrade in the future
