$600 Amd Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friend needs help and I only know Intel lately, so i was hoping you all could help me out.

As stated above his budget is 600 and only the pc is needed. No peripherals or monitor needed.

I guess an intel build would be okay just figured for this price range amd is the best bang for buck.

Thanks all.

Edit: I should add Primarily for wow and some light FPS.

You could try using these parts I put together yesterday for another person:

Athlon II x4 640 + M4A79XTD EVO - $184, $169 AR
Kingston HyperX Blu 1600 CL9 - $50, $40 AR (Great RAM kit, does 2000 CL9 or 1600 CL7-8-7)
Antec NEO ECO 520C + Gigabyte GTS 450 - $170, $145 AR (Same price as an Antec EA-500D + GTS 250 before rebate; even cheaper with the rebates)
Samsung F3 1TB - $55 after promo code HARDOCP112C
HEC Blitz - $40 shipped
LG 24X DVD burner - $17 shipped

Total cost for this: $516 before rebates, $466 after rebates
I can come up with an even better suggestion for you but it'll have to be later.

Was researching for you in newegg, what I came up with was exactly similar to my sig rig. Only you will have a better cabinet (your choice) and more hdd (1TB) and same ram with cas latency 7.

Oh wait..... forgot to consider the smps, hmmm.. in that case either you will have to come up with a lil more money or shave off some from the processor and cabinet budget. But I can tell you this, a 955BE is a great mid range cpu.

Something similar to leopold's build probably will do indeed. I'm thinking this:
Phenom II x4 955
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
Kingston HyperX Blu (suggested)
Gigabyte GTS 450 + Antec 520W (suggested)
Samsung F3 1TB
HEC Blitz (or a better case even)
Any $17 DVD drive

^ would probably fit your budget. You could probably fit in a better video card such as the GTX 460 as well.

@ xd 1771

I am not quite familiar with the M4A79XTD EVO's 790x chipset, is it better than the 880G board I suggested? the 880G has good oc capabilities and you also get the sata 6gbps and usb3 onboard nec chip support. (which I realize are not of much importance right now, but still its there)

The 790X is a bit older, but it's a great chip even for pushing x6 processors. That particular board doesn't have SATAIII or USB3, but what it does have: great power phase, 8x-8x CrossfireX, all the ASUS doohickeys that they put on high end boards... for cheaper.
If you absolutely want SATAIII/USB3 for cheap I recommend you wait until this board is back in stock

That suggestion looks pretty good; a few pointers:
1. go with Kingston HyperX Blu I suggested over the Corsair XMS3, because it is slightly cheaper and is known for overclocking well.
2. GTS 450 + Antec 520W would be much cheaper and match the performance of that (though if you can find a good GTX 460 deal it would exceed everything)
3. I wouldn't go for anything other than the Samsung F3 1TB right now considering the good price point it is at, esp. vs. other hard drives that are smaller.
4. You might want to go with HEC Blitz or Rosewill Challenger/Destroyer instead for similar prices and free case shipping.
