$450 build - suggestions?

19 December 2012 - 05:38 PM

Hi everyone!


So I'm trying to get a good build setup... I am using it primarily for everyday tasks, however, I would like to play most games like Need for Speed Most Wanted.


Now I'm very well with computers, however, I don't know all about overclocking and gaming setups. So I was wondering if anyone can suggest anything.



I have a 950W power supply that I had purchased for $90 - originally $180. So I don't need that.


I would need the case, motherboard, CPU, RAM, and hard drive (any size - 500GB+; I can always upgrade, or add a hard drive and extend the partition).

Video card - if you don't suggest trinity OR CPU/GPU processor


I've built many customer computers, so I'm familiar with that, but I just don't know which motherboard OR CPU is good for gaming.


The case, I'd like the Antec cases - they're nice.



Now, I'm stuck at the CPU and motherboard. 

The CPU, I like AMD's 8-core, but I am not sure how well it does with gaming. 

Motherboard, anything really. Anything that can go up to 16GB RAM - 

I would also like a video card, for gaming. Now I know Trinity and most Intel has a GPU processor, so if you suggest that, that's fine.


I'm looking for $450 price range - it's a small price - but I think you could suggest something!




CPU and motherboard (the best)

I want the best CPU and motherboard. Over 3.0GHz.

Can you tell me which ones I should get.

New build - AMD or Intel?

I want to overclock, yes.
I want to find a build under $700.

Their is one on eBay, with monitor and everything.
Asus p5nd2-Sli Board -
Pent D 3.2g 800mhz -
2g PQI Turbo 667* Dual Channel DDR2 -

Is pentium D good?

Can anyone find me a build, on newegg? I want above 3.0GHz, a SLI mobo, video cards(sli), ram(4Gb), hard drive, case. No power supply. bought a nice new one from shell shocker :)

Can anyone help me out, by finding the greatest deals?

I need a i5 Processor and mobo!

I just got the shell shocker at newegg few days ago


It's actually very nice! Only took a day to arrive too!

So, now I need is a motherboard and a processor then basically I'm pretty much done.

I also need a case. I want full case it's better and more room.

I want a motherboard that I can sli or crossfire. Whichever is better with graphics cards and my power supply supports. I want an i5 processor too. If their is better than i5, then I'll get the better one.

Case can be blue or red. Full tower I prefer.

Anyone find me anything good and looks cool?

I'm getting about $250 tomorrow and about another 200 friday. So after that, I'll be ready for a new computer! :D

AMD or Intel? explain. My friend Jon is the best at gaming computers. He puts three of them together, it's crazy. He loves putting together PC's, and I've seen pics and it looks like quite an expensive project.
He says Intel is better. A lot of people on her are all AMD. What's better for gaming and olverclocking?

System under $200? I have the mobo, CD-Rom

I want a cheap gaming computer. I only have 200$, sad yea.
Anyhow, I want to get started with gaming computers. I don't need Windows 7, I have XP and 7, so software isn't needed.

I have an old compaq sr1210nx with a mobo. The motherboard doesn't get power, but everything else does. HP said it was the power supply that was corrupt.

So, I have the motherboard. But if you can find a simple motherboard then that'll work. I suggest trying to find a motherboard, because I don't want to be left hanging if the mother board I have actually works!

I don't want anything BIG yet. I want something small that I can build, play with, then upgrade later.

I really want liquid cooling! But it is expensive, but if you can find a simple case with power supply, liquid cooling, and case then awesome!

I know some people may say "under 200 isn't possible!" I think it is possible because some stuff is cheap, and you can also do combo deals!

My favorite color is blue, so try finding something blue!

Just reply if you want to ask me any questions..

Remember, this computer is only for now. I want to find a job, then get paid and upgrade the computer!
