I have a budget of $1400... - Page 3

Not to mention that CUDA could help render if needed. I say this because there's no reason to have such a good CPU and a crap GPU in the same computer. One should be at least decent if the other is going to be up to date. =D

+1 on the GTX 460. If you want a good mid-upper level card that will get good longevity and allow you to play that occasional game, the EVGA GTX 460 SC 768 MB is a solid choice (SC for superclocked). It's already overclocked out of the box to run at 763 core and 1526 shader, and if you did want to play with the clock settings EVGA's precision software makes it fool-proof to tweak the card, but you don't have to; this card will play nearly anything at or just below high/full quality settings. The card has good connectivity with 2 DVI and one mini-HDMI out, plus it comes with it's own HDMI cable (nice savings there). Would make it real easy to hook up to that LCD TV you have.

Just saw it on Newegg for $179.99, and after rebate $154.99, can't go wrong with that price.

H67 chipset can't overclock but it has quicksync which can help transcode media up to 4x as fast as normal. edit: using the onboard graphics, you can't use a dedicated gfx card for that.

p67 allows you to overclock. So in this case, you should go with h67 chipset since you're not going to be overclocking it, are you?

I really don't plan on overclocking but at the same time I don't want to be handicapped in the future if I do want to overclock. I sound like a confused girl.

Then you should go with a p67 chipset mobo. There's a biostar TP67B+ for $130 on newegg. Should be sufficient if you plan on overclock in the future

And about AMD vs Intel. If you game and want it cheap(budget less than $700), go AMD. If you're productive and big budget(above $1000), def. go with Intel.

Ok I think this may be the final build...

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=11314189

What does everyone think? I'll get a HDD later when there are some excellent deals out there. I think I could go ahead and start purchasing now if this is good!

600W PSU won't be enough if you eventually want to run more than one Graphics Card, and a lot of people really like 460 SLI.

You're missing a motherboard, and DVD drive. The RAM is out of stock too.
Intel CPU coolers are garbage, with the Hyper 212+ you can get the 2500K up to 5Ghz.

Using your WishList and Combos on Newegg, I finished your build

Intel 2500K & Hyper 212+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.618217

BioStar TP67B+ & Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.616237

EVGA GTX 460 1GB & Windows 7
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.591025

Corsair 600T + Corsair TX 650 V2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.613684

64GB Crucial SSD System Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148357

Asus DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

Asus HD LCD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236100

Total comes to $1,312.32

Theres still room in your budget to get the Storage drive:
Samsung F3 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

Makes the total = $1,377.31

I am looking to run the OS and a few applications off a SSD. I could even just pick up a HDD later for storage.

I would like to be able to use my big screen LCD as a monitor when needed to watch online content. I would like to be able to play a game in the future if I wanted to but don't feel like I would need a super high-end card. I also would like dual monitor capabilities if needed.

I have right at $600 of amazon credit and $800 cash. Can you more educated people give me some good builds?
get this
cpu- i5 2500k
mobo- biostar tp67b+
gpu- gtx460 1gb
ram- 2x2gb corsair xms3/gskill ripjaws 1600mhz
psu- corsair tx750
pc case- nzxt phantom/cooler master haf922
hdd- 1tb samsung sprinpoint f3
optical drive- asus 24x
ssd- corsair force 40gb
hope u like the setup

I am ok with one video card. I can always upgrade later if I want more than one.
