The GTS 450 wouldn't be a bad card to have. But you should try and get a 460 if you can.

I went with the SAPPHIRE 100283-3L Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card.

I am PRAYING I did not screw up and get something that was not compatible? I checked all the specs and it seemed to be OK. I could not get on overclock for a while, the page kept timing out on me!

Lol, I am not sure if you are messing with me or not. Usually, I am a MASTER TROLL, and can pick out a troll at over 2k yards. =P


Nah, I could never take "flaming" personally. I quite enjoy it, when the time is right that is. I do not intend to unleash the troll in me here. I only intend to educate myself to the best of my ability, and to share what knowledge I accumulate. (:

btw, cheers!

Welcome! And Welcome to the USA!! I'm of Irish decent and would love to go visit the "motherland" someday

I love to nerd-out and throw together systems on Newegg so I'll see what I can come up with.

In my opinion; a case is personal preference, one case I may really like you might really hate. Something to consider: Do you like LEDs in your case? If so is your case in your bedroom and can you sleep with bright lights?

Na, he's not messing with you, theres a real professional feel around OCN, so there usually isnt much trolling at all.

My build was similar to yours when it started (I had a €300 budget) and its just sort of grown from there, im sure yours will do the same

Nice choice on the 5770 too, very nice card

And welcome to OCN

I'll do my best to do my very best.

HELL YEAH! I intend to make this grow, and last! I have NEVER had a computer where I could upgrade it. Funny, I spent over $600 on a laptop a few years back, and could do nothing with it! Ugh. Brb, inventing time machine.

THANK YOU! I was SO worried that the card would be crap! MAN, I am so frigging excited right now I could wet myself, but I won't. My GF is going to be so proud. =P Perhaps now she won't be so ashamed to be seen with me in public? Hm...

And cheers for the welcome!

Well, my budget is very small... $500 =/ Though, I WILL be upgrading over time. Thing is, I would Really like to have something I can start using straight away! And I know this isn't important, but... please don't roll your eyes! lol... I am DYING to have ... a nice case.


As for what I am looking for:

I would like to get into games such as Assassins Creed, etc. Also, I'd be using it as my home entertainment (movies, etc). Perhaps a bit of editing with like, Photoshop or whatever. Basically, I am looking for the impossible, probably! I keep having people tell me I'm cheap and if I expect to game, I need to save more money! That says to me that some people lack creativity! Thats one thing I do not lack. Only thing I lack is the time, and needed skills to get into building and whatnot. Which I DO plan to do! I LOVE to learn new things, being a Science/History, Etc .. Channel geek! My gf tells me she .. ugh, sorry got off topic there.


Also, I was told AMD is best for gaming, maybe thats just the preference of some, its what I assume anyway. I do not know much about all the differences. But I shall learn over time!

So yes, the impossible dream for me is to have myself a nice semi-gaming computer, for $500. It will be difficult but I am up for the challenge. I'm just running out of time and its getting on my nerves. =)

Apologies if I left anything out, or strayed. I've got a difficult time getting to the point most times.
amd isnt best for gaming.... its best for cheapskates who want to game
