800 dollar gaming rig - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Here is a good monitor: Samsung B2230HD

I bought this monitor a few months ago along with an MSI GTX 460 Twin Frozr II GPU and I love it. The picture is great with 1920x1080 resolution and hooked up via HDMI cable.

Umm... No offence... But...
I rarely say this, and please dont get me wrong, but if you are not comfortable around computers, which I'm just assuming you arent because you dont own one and are not up to date with computer tech related news/parts, dont build it yourself. Its very easy to mess it up... especially when fiddling with electronics for the first time. Its just a thought you should consider. Im building mine only after I completely modded a pre-built system. Maybe start there?

But I still built one for you... you can crossfire another HD 5770 to get pretty good results for around ~850.

This all comes out to around 960, recently built a similar system like this for a friend and he is very pleased. You have a lot of room to upgrade, 4 gigs of ram is enough for most things right now, when you get some more cash can toss in another 460 etc. I didn't include mouse or keyboard, or speakers, most people have those lying around somewhere already ha ha
You can shave off some bucks by going with a cheaper monitor,cheaper ram, and cheaper video card. But this is pretty solid in my opinion. If you wanted to overclock these chips do it nicely, but i wouldn't recommend their stock heatsinks.
negative on the NVIDIA GPU, with an AMD board he won't be able to SLI in the future. Best to go with an AMD GPU as well or a better nvidia GPU.

The i5-760 is the best $750-$850 build, in opinion...

You will need to look for combo deals to get it below $800, but it's worth looking for deals on this system!

You would be better to save up another $200 - $400 for your system this will give you much better components by far...

A premium system will run you around $1,000-$1,200, and that's pretty much as cheap as they get...

Anything else is purely a budget or mid-range build...
