Hi, my friend needs a new pc, as his old Q6600, 4850 combo doesn't cut it anymore, so I was sitting today, finding components for his new build, but the only thing that concerns me is the 7850, originally I was considering the 560Ti, however benchmarks shows that the 7850 beats the 560Ti, and is still somewhat cheaper...
Check build:

Anything I should change? He will be using the pc for DOTA 2, and games in that league, also photoshop and the office suite and so on...


Regards
Jacob

Well as this is bought in Denmark, the prices can't really be compared, however the components I've chosen right now is around 1350USD, when the currencies has been converted...

The site I've used is a service, which shows where every component is the cheapest, so my friend will be buying from different sites... However if you wan't to suggest another component, please do, just keep it in the same price-range as the original component smile.gif

Well all of the major components you've chosen look great. All generally considered good value vs. price. I tend to favor nvidia card, so would lean towards that, but that is more of a personal preference.

Really the only meaningful suggestion I have is that, unless he really needs that 2tb hdd for storage, I would just use the old hdd's from the build he has now til the prices drop. They are still overpriced right now. Definitely get the ssd for boot though smile.gif

Thanks! Well the I got a suspicion that the drive he got right now, is failing, as he is getting BSOD's even after a format... I might just go with a 1TB drive, as he isn't gonna use much space anyway smile.gif

Well, if choosing that, the overall price will probably just increase... Also, the 2500K is more than enough for gaming right now, and will probably still not be bottle-necked the next 2 years...

we dont know yet, it might or it might not, just refreshing the new line up and might cause exisitng 2500K to drop prices, after building this rig its already old when its just been put up together
