  1. UPDATE::: So with the IB coming and I saved some more cash for the build I wanted to share what I am building for my daughter, My computer works great, and I did get myself a small upgrade which I'll point out in the list below: She is getting: Antec 1100 Case ASRock Z77 Extreme6 i5-3570K G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 2GB Mushkin 120GB SATA III SSD Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb ASUS 24X SATA DVD Burner PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit And the small upgrade to my rig in my sig: OCZ Vertex Plus 120GB SATA II SSD So, I want to say thanks to the forum for your advice and help in getting this built! Any comment or errors I may have made are still appreciated!
  2. I will be swappin my MOBO for the one you mentioned!
  3. Hello everyone and THANK YOU so much for all your help! I have crunched some numbers and did tons of reading and I think below is my newest build idea....I'm kind of jealeous of this vs my rig Cases - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout $69.99 OR I may get a nice deal on an Antec 1100 $20+Shipping graphics - SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 $249.99 PSU - PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W $99.99 Ram - G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB DDR3 1600 $44.99 Mobo - ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 $104.99 CPU - i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz $209.99 OS - Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM $139.99 HD - Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 120GB SATA III (SSD) $124.99 dvd - ASUS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner OEM $19.99 Total with shipping = $1,070.94 And I'll get $20 rebate. This is a few hundred more than I wanted to spend, but my daughter does great in school even while gaming so why not spend a little more for a rig that will last her years If no one has any better things to swap out to save money I'll prob get this over this today or over the weekend!
  4. I just want to say your comments have brought a tear to my eye! I thought I did good but with your knowledge and adivce I will do better! Thanks so much. I'm going back to newegg and follow your adivce and post up the changes! Thanks so very much!
  5. Hello super smart computer people! I am a long time reading and this is the best spot for one stop shopping adivce on computers and great advice! So now that I have kissed up to who ever chooses to read this, let me tell you why I'm here! I'm going to build my daughter a rig for her school work and gaming. She likes to play WoW, Mass effect, D3 when it comes out, and elder scrolls. She currently hogs my computer since its the only one in the house that can play all those games on the ultra settings. I want to make hers gaming centered with a cheap budget. This is what I was looking at for a build, there will be no overclocking of any kind on this. Comments would be helpful. Cheap O Intel MB i5-2400 G skill ripjaws 8gb ram EVGA gtx550 1gb Cooler master 750W PS WD SATA 6.0 250gb CD burner Antec Nine Hundred mid tower case Grand total:$769.75 (will this play the games mentioned about at near top settings?) UPDATED on last page.
  6. Hey its been awhile since i've posted anything here, but I really think your build is....well....off. I think once people start reading this they will hook you right up with something that looks much more beast. I am at work and the Navy does not like newegg for some reason or I would post my thoughts....but I envy you!! I wish I had that much to spend on a new rig! I'll repost with my thought when I get home if no one chimes in. good luck!
  7. I would say just pick a forum topic and start reading. There is a ton of info about everything. You said you are looking to spend $500, is that on EVERYTHING, or is that just for the case and what goes inside? If you are going to need a monitor, mouse, and keyboard it might be hard to make budget. If you are just aiming for the case and internals, then I think you should be able to squeak in around 500.
  8. Well all the parts are ordered and I guess we will see what kind of numbers I can throw up. I'll Post some stock numbers then when its all OC as much as I can on Air. Just so people can get an idea of what this build can do.
  9. Good call on the ram, I swapped it out. Still work on the GPU. Thinking of that GTX285 with 2g. Just not sure if that is to much lol
  10. I was going to pick up the GTX275, but after reading I was not sure. I think I can swing the GTX285. I just didn't want to spend money on something I would not be using to its fullest. If I did go with the GTX285 would the 1g or 2g be better and not overkill.
  11. Well I figured it was time for a new rig when my old one just was not getting the graphic setting off the low end. Below is the rig I intend to buy today or tomorrow. Going to give it some time for you wonderful people to review and make comments if needed. So this is what I'm planning on getting: The Case: Antec Twelve Hundred The CPU:Intel i7 920 The CPU heat sink Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 120mm Motherboard:ASUS P6T LGA 1366 GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 (With some more reading I got this) PS:CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W RAM:OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (Changed as per advice Thanks) Hard Drive WD Black 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA I'm going to be running Windows 7 and using my CRT listed below, i just love that crt! I'm hoping to play just about any game on max setting or very close to it. Any thoughts on something that should be changed to make that happen I'm open to thoughts. Thanks as always!!! UPDATED: Newegg now has my money and I should have my new toy in a few days.
  12. Ok, I think I'm set on getting a GTX something. I'm going to building an new rig and I've read so much about the 275 being great and the 285 and 295 are wonderful as well, as long as its not wasted on the display. I will still be rocking my old 22" CRT since I'm not mobile. It's resolution can do up to 2048x1536 at 85hertz. Now the rest of the new rig is going to be quite nice, with all the best bang for the buck items. This is the only part I can not get a solid choice on. So with my display should I get: 1 GTX 275 and maybe one later on or 2 now or 1 GTX 285 or if i can swing the price 1 GTX 285 This will be the last part before I can give newegg my money Also if the 4980's would be a better choice then please speak on that as well. I'm looking to play just about any game out there on full settings Thanks
  13. I just want to suggest something to the ADMIN of this site. A REALLY good idea you could use to help a lot of new people and lazy people lol, to make a sticky/pinned post of Best bang for your buck price ranges. Then people would not post asking people to rate their computer when its one item off the post below the person would make. I'm sure there are very computer smart people that could whip a list together rather fast. I would say something like just what's in the case in brackets starting at 800, 1200, 1500, and 1500+ all on air cooling. Water or better would be more but that would be a new sticky. It would be something like: 800 and below: Case: Case 1, Case 2, Case 3 Motherboards: mobo #1, Mobo #2 mobo#3 CPU: #1, #2, #3 Memory etc GPU etc HD etc PSU etc Just an idea to limit the amount posts in this forum. It
  14. wow some good build help so far! I love reading about your ideas. I'll research all of it and make a good choice. of course I will keep everyone up updated. Thanks please keep the help up , it is great!
