Mid-tower Build Help

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Alright, so i got a COOLER MASTER Storm Scout case and i decided to replace my laptop im running now. This is my first solo build, although i have built one or two with someone else. What i am mostly needing is a good set of hardware to run on. pretty low budget, under $1000 if at all possible, as i still need a monitor and OS. I will be running Eve Online at max/average graphics, specs on their site which i will link at the bottom of this post. (not Crysis by any means, but pretty good.) I will eventually be able to upgrade some parts as money comes my way, but for now i want a good stable build with decent graphics and okay processor. I also have a cpu fan that i will be putting on it, and the case has pretty big fans built in.

Thanks everyone for the help!

How about something like this?

About $830 before rebates and includes an SSD.

Forgot to ask, what kind of CPU cooler do you have?

Im running one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835203004 But, (dumb question incoming) would that fit an AMD CPU? i decided to spend an extra 10-20 bucks and go for the Phenom x4 3.4ghz, figured it would be money well spent

Edit: going to buy a new cooler since this one doesn't fit.

Why'd you open up a second thread if you already had one?

I thought a LAN pc would be good, but decided to upgrade and go with the mid-tower. Deleting old thread now.

Edit: err.. Trying to.

The people telling you to avoid ASUS motherboards don't know what they're talking about.

That's good to hear what do you recommend? I don't need inboard graphics, already have one picked out. Inboard sound would be good though, and the board has to be ATX or mATX.
