Best build for gaming... 800$ ... I am at 1000 now. - Page 3

post #21 of 32
No build of that caliber should be using generic 1333Mhz RAM, especially when those Corsair vengeance blue are $10 less
I'd help you out with a suggestion but I'm very constrained today

Some tips:
-ASRock 890FX-Deluxe5 has AM3+ black socket!
-1100T not worth it over 1090T, 1075T not worth it over 1055T
-With this kind of budget you should at least be able to fit in a solid state drive also
-GTX 560 Ti over that 6870 if you can find it for similar price

be pretty hard to fit a SSD in this $800 budget.The Corsair 8GB kit I linked is a steal!I recommended the 1075 over the 1055 only because he isn't overclocking initially and the extra speed will help in SCII,and the price difference is negligible.While the 560Ti is nice,there is no way your going to find one for $199 plus a $20 rebate.

1075T not really worth it over 1055T as long as you have decent 1600Mhz RAM and a decent motherboard (both present)

Not sure about you but I think the NZXT M59 is a better deal for the price; $60, $45 AR (so $5 cheaper)... you get black interior, window, good cooling slots, great features

Why do you need an x6 for gaming anyways? Why not get an x4?

Some games now are CPU intensive and will use the 6 cores. SCII will use the 6 cores most definitely. x6 also usually overclocks slightly better than x4.

I really wanted a case that has more fans.... on the specs of the coolermaster it only says 2 fans but the side looks like there is a place for a fan? I was going to replace the front 120mm with a 140mm and put the 120mm on the side. Do you think that would work?

Edit:::: Nvm I see 5 fan capability. I added it to the cart . I was always a fan of windows anyway haha.

I would stick with the HAF912 over any of the mentioned cases. simply the best case for the money by far. You also can place the fans like you stated. It will take 2 120mm on top, two 120mm on front, 1 120mm on rear and 1 120mm on side. You can replace the top, front, and side fans with 140mm ones. The rest of the build looks great. A+

My last question. With this build and my antec 750w psu do you think it would be ok to crossfire my gpu with no changes? Or should I buy a larger psu? Thanks much.

and do you think the rig in my sig could handle BF3? Or would I have to buy the extra gpu to crossfire.
