Help with i7 / SB Build with Monitor for $1000 (Updated with Build)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need to build an i7/ SB build for around $1000. I know there is already a thread similar to that here and I just looked through that.

This will NOT be gaming, and will NOT be overclocked. Stock..

Edit* Here's what I've came up with

i5 2500k, GTS 450, 4GB 1600 ram, 23.6 LCD, Antec 902. all for $900 after rebates. Beastly build.






I need a complete system with a 22-23.5" Monitor all for under a grand.. I was thinking the built in graphics might be enough, but I might also throw some cheap 4830 in there or something just to be safe. As the owner might game at some point.

Thanks for any help guys.. (oh and I'll do the CM690 or 2 for case, or maybe the Antec 300)

Nah... Give him a sexy gamer case. The dust filters and features are just nice. Don't forget to use combo deals, even though Newegg's combos have been relatively lame compared to last year's.

Core i7 2600K + Promo HARDOCPX3X9D - $314
Biostar P67 + 8GB Vengeance 1600 - $210
Antec 902 + TruePower 750W - $180
1TB F3 - $65
ASUS 23" LED HDMI Monitor - $190
You could then get something like that 4850 I saw for $45 on Online Deals, or something used, or get a cheaper monitor and go for a GTS 450 or 250 1GB (like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133343).

Total: ~$1000, less after MIR's
You could also shave off $40 by getting cheaper RAM .

Thats a pretty well done attempt there sir. I need built in speakers in the Monitor (sad i know. lol, not for me) and graphics card can be pretty weak.

I'd also rather use a slightly better brand motherboard, but otherwise that build looks pretty solid. I might use most of that tonight.

I'm thinking the i5-2500. that is still a Quad Core Sandy bridge and should be more than enough

I don't want issues on a PC I'm building for someone else. It will NOT be overclocked, just wants a good PC for a while. I think the i5 would be plenty.
