Possible Gaming build, $750 CAD.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well a friend of a friend offed me $1200 for my comp.( ) Maybe because it 'Battle Tested'.

So IDK but if I accept his offer, I would like to build a $750 CAD MAX AMD/INTEL system. Not including the PSU/GFX/CASE/OS/LCD/KEY-Mouse

There is a few used/new parts I will be getting.

-Corsair HX750w $125
-EVGA GeForce GTX 480 SuperClocked $325 (Brand new)
-Antec P182 or Thermaltake XaserIII $50

INTEL Build


AMD Build(I know it over the $750 cap, I may trim it, somehow.)


or build me something INTEL/AMD the GFX is set in stone.(New 480 for $325 very nice deal.)

Thank you all and any help.

I'd go with an SSD instead of a velociraptor.

Also, it's accept, not except.

TBH they sound the same. Just a matter of reading comprehension. (knowing what each means and where to use them)


You can certainly go a lot cheaper on the RAM, you don't really need 8GB

That frees up ~$70

Therein lies the problem. I hear less then 30% of English Alphabet, a very good chunk sounds the same to me. So in a sense English is like a second language for me.

I need 8GB of ram but I could get by for a month or two. Thanks.
