I want to build the new gaming computer with average specification to play the games like GTA, Battelfield, Warcraft etc. my buget is around 1000$.. all suggetions are welcomed.....
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all i am new to this website as i just found it a few weeks ago absolutely love the news section its awesome I have decided to make an account for some more opinions on my gaming build My current build has lasted me and a half years but i think computer build New gaming that was more luck then anything else If you are interested the build is in my profile I have got a lot of opinions already however i am still unsure on a few things namely the mobo gpu combo but if you have opinions on anything else share I am planning on another future-proof build Here we go Budget is All prices are AUD Case - Corsair Graphite T Case - Motherboard - ASUS P X D Premium Motherboard - CPU - Intel Core i - GPU - x Gigabyte GeForce GTX GB Overclocked - Memory - Corsair CMP New gaming computer build GX M A C GB x GB DDR - HDD - Seagate Momentus XT ST AS GB - OS - Microsoft Windows Home Premium bit OEM - PSU - Corsair HX- Power Supply - Monitor - Samsung BX inch Widescreen LED Monitor - OR Dell UltraSharp U H quot - External Optical - Samsung SH-B A X Blu-ray DVD Combo Drive - Keyboard - Logitech G Gaming Keyboard - Mouse Mat - Razer Vespula Dual-Sided Mouse Mat - Speakers - Altec Lansing FX Expressionist Bass - Headset - Astro Gaming A BXR Special Edition - USD External ---------------------------------------------- Is not included in final price Also note that the prices are off one Australian website - PC Case Gear nbsp
I recommend this PSU instead; it's way cheaper and more than sufficient for that system.
Also, try checking out www.staticice.com.au; you can find a lot of the parts linked to for cheaper than on the site you plan to buy them from.

let me know if theres compatability issues/concerns or reccomendations .etc Thanks
Avoid that OCZ PSU at all costs. This high quality 550W XFX one seems to be a good price.
Not sure which Kingston Hyper X RAM you picked, but you want to avoid the 1.65V kits. This Samsung set is easily the best RAM for the price, rated at only 1.35V and very overclockable which will come in handy with your Phenom II.
Other than that the build looks good, you need to add a HDD/SSD.
Hi I am looking to build a new PC for gaming, I already have a pre built computer which was used for school work etc. (decent processor, crappy graphics). It is a slimline pavilion so I can't add on to it, all parts are OEM.
I am interested in getting opinions of places to order products (within Australia), and complete builds that are $600 or less.
Edit: Only interested in Desktop, not including mouse, monitor keyboard etc.
What part of Australia do you live in can you link me to some of your local store websites or such, and ill try help you out
Im wondering if this is all compatible and a good gaming pc build for the first time builder like me
heres the part list
the mother board is the asus maximus iv extreme
the video card is a evga 560ti
the cpu is a intel core sandy brigde i7
16 gb of corsair vengance
the os is windows seven
and the abs majesty 1100w power supply
Hey everybody, at the moment my computer is just not cutting it gaming wise. My question is, would it be cheaper to build my own gaming computer or to buy one.
When I say gaming computer I mean something that can run Crysis decently. It doesn't have to be top of the line. Just capable of running it on a decent level. I don't really know much about computers so any advice on what items i would need to purchase to suit my needs is welcome.
Thanks in advance.
well first off i wanted to build a computer but with all these new stuff Me Help Gaming Build Computer... A coming out and hardware now being obselete i need advice on what to buy well first off i have a limit on about - dollars under would be great i Help Me Build A Gaming Computer... want a computer that can play f e a r mtw II company of heroes and all those other high end games i usually like playing rts games and fps games i also like to multi task oh yeah i just only need a cpu ram video card motherboard and a computer case i also had some in mind but not sure if its good Intel Core Duo E Conroe GHz M sharing L Cache LGA Processor http www newegg com Product Product asp Item N E Intel BOXDG SSCK Socket T LGA Intel G Express Micro ATX Intel Motherboard http www newegg com Product Product asp Item N E VIKING GB x GB -Pin DDR SDRAM DDR PC Dual Channel Kit System Memory http www newegg com Product Product asp Item N E eVGA -P -N -AX Geforce GT MB -bit GDDR PCI Express x Video Card http www newegg com Product Product asp Item N E now i need a case unless you guys have a better suggestion in mind nbsp
Hi I am just wondering if these specs are compatible and are decent for the budget I have. I have a budget of about 1500 or 1000 it will depend what the total cost is. I am going to try to over clock in the future so I am also wondering if this stuff if decent enough to over clock and everything is compatible. I am also going with amd.

The biggest problem I see here is your motherboard choice. I think you should get a much less expensive motherboard, as you are not likely to use enough of its features to justify that enormous price-tag.(I wouldn't dream of spending nearly 3 times as much on my motherboard than my CPU). Something like THIS or THIS is much more reasonable. I would put that extra money towards buying a better CPU.
Although I don't mind you going with AMD, I would like to know why you elected to go with them.
I would swap that power supply out for a better one. I've heard some bad Rosewill stories in the past, and although they're better now, I still wouldn't trust them to power my rig. Go with something from Seasonic, XFX or Corsair. You could probably safely downgrade to 650W as well, unless you plan to SLI in the future.
The 660 Ti is a good choice, and so is EVGA. However, you might want to consider a HD 7950, which gives generally better performance for around the same price. Plus, AMD is giving out free games with the 7900 series, so I'd choose it over the 660 Ti.
I'd also go with the newer Hyper 212 EVO over the Hyper 212 PLUS.
So I want to build a gaming computer for my self. I would say my budget is around $2000. The things that I want most of this computer is to be able to play Counter Strike Global Offensive at the best performance, this is my favorite game. Also I love to edit gaming and action sport videos. I have a go pro that I use a lot, but my laptop wont run Go Pro Studios very well, so I would like this computer to run it smoothly. Also videos take up a lot of space so I don't want to ever worry about not having enough space. I was thinking like 2 TB of space maybe. Also lastly I have used friends computers who's computers overheat and shut off, so i want a decent cooling system.
I am quite a noob at building the perfect computer so any advice would be amazing.
moving to hardware as it's not really news. And welcome to TSG as well.
hey for gaming! new build trying computer, a to some im trying to build a new computer, for some gaming! new to the whole building a new computer thing but i would really like to build a new computer that can run the latest games from around or less not including the operating system i Already have a windows vista Also i already have a case keyboard mouse and speakers but everything else im not quite sure to get Im more of the quot know nothing quot but quot play everything quot type of guy i need some major help here If you need any more information i d be happy to give I can build the computer my self with the help of some guides but its choosing the right parts that is the challenge for me Im also not sure of what the difference between an AMD processor and a Intel processor is but im leaning intel because that is what i here is good Also i want a dual core processor I m thinking a MB video card would be good Need some help please nbsp
Hello everyone i have been playing games on my laptop and its just My first for gaming build computer not good enough at all anymore I have always wanted a nice gaming computer I have recently been trying to learn about it all and build my own gaming computer to save some money I did have a plan that My first computer build for gaming was including the i intel GPU but after learning a little more i am kinda leaning towards AMD x Since i mostly plan to play games on it i read that AMD is good for gaming and it could save me money some use of other things maybe college work but i also got this laptop so mostly strictly gaming maybe So now im confused and starting over trying to think what to combine for good rig I want a rig that can be very fast and handle games with graphics all the way up right now graphics at minimal low and still laggin especially starcraft and to handle furture games like possibly the new mmo blizzard will release My first computer build for gaming in the next years or whatever So with all that said I came across the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula ATX Motherboard MHz Socket AM I thought this would be a good start I was going to use corsair memory but now idk if it will go with ASUS since it says to go with intel junts So idk about that for one and im just getting frustrated trying to study for this lol I am trying to come on with a good build idea so what would be best with this mobo for jaw dropping graphics i want I dont want an expensive rig over is getting way too much but i dont have to buy it all now meaning i could spend close up to at the end of this project maybe i was definetly wanting AMD x and was thinking the AMD - Black Edition Phenom II X Processor T but do i need that could i get another X I was looking at the radeon graphic cards but not sure which one to get Doesnt have to be radeon tho SO if anyone is an expert or any experience could help me out i would greatly appeciate it I am completely new to all this so plz explain anything to me as to why i should get a certain part rather than other parts If i should get a different mobo and AMD or go back to the intel i idea then tell me i dont mind if i can save more money and have the gaming experience i want thats great i could put future money into sound and great monitor and such Or if there is a good gaming computer to just buy that has what i want for the good price THanks for the help and sorry for such a looooong post but i felt i needed to get most of my thoughts down so that you could understand what it is im looking for BTW i do not plan to overclock i don t want to ruin anything i put so much money into and feel i don t need to overclock intil maybe in the distant future and i know more about how to do all that safely Also i was looking at the PSI cyclone case cuz it looked awesome tell me ur ideas on that to and if i should get that or get sumthin more durable nbsp
My first suggestion is that you need a TL; DR.
I read some (IMO) poor choices, and I also happened to notice that you say that you're pretty clueless.
Therefore I went over your plans briskly.
So lets get started, first thing we need to know is a budget, and what that'll include, i.e. will that include a monitor? Mouse? Keyboard? OS? ect...
Hey guys could you help me build a gaming computer with a budget of 500 to possibly 550$ this will be my first build so if you guys could explain everything to me that would be great (though I think that is TOO much work)
What games are you wanting to play?
What resolutions do you intend on using?
Do you have a PC you are upgrading or do you need all new parts?
hello i want to build the very best gaming computer i can for around $2600 i have thought of a ton of builds but just can't choose between them all any help would be appreciated. I want to include a 24" monitor with this purchase but was just wanting to get everyone's take on the matter.
i would like to go intel on this build with just 6 Gigs of ram. I was thinking that i might could get an intel 6 core but hard to swallow almost $900 bucks just for a cpu anyways i dont need a mouse or keyboard thanks a lot any help is appreciated.
Well idk how much you know but if you really want a good gaming computer.
i7 900 series
ati 5970 xfx GPU
gigabyte x58 ud5
corsair 1000W PSU or NZXT 1000w (both very stable and very very nice psu's)
and on that i7, noctua NH-D14 is a really good cooler if im not mistaken. about 80 bucks. That should be in an approximate range of 2.6k
Again, just a ballpark answer just wanted to help a little bit.
I do not do a lot of heavy gaming gaming Build] Cheap computer [First however I would like this PC to be able to withstand that possibility if I change my mind afterwards This is my first build so any suggestions or reasonings would be very much appreciated Approximate Purchase Date This week if possible Budget Range around Preferred Website s for Parts newegg com Country of Origin US Parts Preferences Due to budget i d like to stick to AMD Other than that I have no preferences Additional Comments I would like the computer to be relatively quiet and cool Processor http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E - This has already been purchased since I found a deal with it off amazon Motherboard http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E Memory http www amazon com [First Build] Cheap gaming computer Corsair-Venge X M A C dp B CRSM I ref pd bxgy e img b -already purchased Graphics Card http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E - I am open to changing this Hard Drive http www bestbuy com site Seagate rive p id amp skuId DVD Drive http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E Case http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E or http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E - - torn between cases I like the side panel clear on the cooler master however the challenger has amazing reviews and the top and front fans PSU http www [First Build] Cheap gaming computer newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E Monitor Not sure at all probably something on sale between quot and quot - Keyboard http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E When [First Build] Cheap gaming computer it comes down to it I am open to any suggestions to better improve this build with the same relative cost or downgrade any items to help my cost while not hindering the build too much I would like to hear opinions on the cases a monitor and graphics card especially Price total currently - nbsp

You have a Z77 Motherboard, which allows for overclocking, and your CPU is not overclock-ble. I would suggest upgrading to the i5-3570k, as it is only a few dollars more, and allows for overclocking. The alternative is to downgrade to a H77 motherboard if you do not plan to overclock at all.
I've also noticed that the Motherboard you linked is only $90, rather than the $200 you described. (Have you linked the wrong board???).
If you plan to overclock, and your budget is $200 I would definitely go for something like:
I would recommend purchasing an aftermarket CPU cooler. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is a great little cooler for only $35. It will be quieter, give better temperatures and allow for much more effective overclocking if you desire.
A 850W power supply is overkill for your build, and could only be justified if you plan to SLI two GTX 660 Ti's in the future. The PSU you have chosen is also only 80 plus bronze, which is good but not great. I would recommend going quality over quantity, and go for something like these:
Apart from that, I think that you have great build in the makings
So this is my attempt to build a gaming computer that Another think? build, computer gaming whatcha I d actually want to upgrade over the future Future proofing What do you think - CPU i - K the K merely because it seems to overclock the best is it worth the extra - Video Card GTX Ti GB Is the Ti really worth the extra I do plan on getting or more in the future Depending on where I m slacking for future games - Motherboard EVGA Z FTW -IB-E -KR Whatcha think Plenty of PCI E slots Seems very cheap for what if offers - Memory Crucial Ballistix x GB DDR Cas Could get piratically the same memory for less with a higher CAS Rating I don t want GIG sticks again going on about future Another gaming computer build, whatcha think? proofing - Power Supply http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E amp name Power-Supplies Only that many watts so I d have more then enough power for as many video cards as my heart desires - Case Idk that d roughly be the price of it though There s a few contenders I don t need a harddrive plan on just using the one I have and then getting SSD s in maybe years when they become bigger cheaper I also am just going to use the same optical drive Again Plan on getting a few more video cards in the future Ti worth the extra bucks knowing this More ram may be a possibility as well Not anytime soon though Overclocking would be Another gaming computer build, whatcha think? a must in the future that motherboard seems to be good with it there are a few others I was considering around the same price The GA-Z X-UD H or Another gaming computer build, whatcha think? the MSI Z MPOWER are also on the list I plan on upgrading this thing until the CPU is where the bottleneck lies Once that things trash that s when I ll get the new computer hopefully after years lol Any changes A-okay I m open to opinion I didn t wanna spend more then sorta a little off from my price so far around I m more then willing to spend the extra bucks as long as its not overkill wasteful yadayada Thanks nbsp
IMO the 660Ti is a good deal and you should take it.
I like the Corsair Carbide 400r.
Hey everybody I m looking to gaming a nice I'm computer looking to build build a nice gaming computer with a lot of room for upgrade for when i get a job in the foreseeable future What i want this system to run is something like Minecraft at the HIGHEST settings with an unnecessarily large amount of mods with little to no lag Now don t get me wrong I m not trying to get something that can run Crysis at max settings or fly the I'm looking to build a nice gaming computer space shuttle as what i will mostly be doing will be playing Minecraft as I cant afford many other games I'm looking to build a nice gaming computer Also if it wont cost me much more money I would like it to run The Sims at good settings not necessarily Max settings but good Same goes for Fallout Game of the year edition as I bought it for my Laptop and have yet to play it Any suggestions would be nice My budget is anywhere from p I'm looking to build a nice gaming computer to give or take nbsp

Everything looks fine. G.Skill are showing RAM compatibility with the board, and their NQ modules of the same specification are listed in Asus' QVL.
The HD 5850 at 24cm should fit ok in the chassis. I can't see any other area's that could possibly be cause for conflict.
I dont really know what to get right now all i know is core2duo is good Im thinking about going .. 1000-1300
Are you going to build one or buy a pre-made one like a Dell? I highly recommend building one since it will be cheaper and you will get to learn about the whole process while doing so. It's not very difficult and we at TS can help u out with it.
Hey, I am wanting to make my first gaming computer and despite all my research and back checking, I still feel like something may be wrong, not to mention if possible I would like to save a bit more money since I am just above my budget of about $500. Below is a link to my build.
I am hoping to play mainly games like WoW, Arche Age, and mmos like that. Also I may occasionally play something more demanding like Skyrim or something. Any tips, and if possible money saves, let me know.
Probably better to get rid of the GPU and just go with an AMD APU. Like A10-5800K
I am looking to build a gaming rig and it's been a while. I was hoping someone could point me to two things:
1) The hardware that is recommended
2) A reliable place online to get the parts
Based on my limited knowledge, I am guessing at things like;
10,000rpm drives - Raid 0
SLI or Crossfire video cards(2)
650 Watt P/S
2GB Memory, not sure what memory is low latency or how to tell, I'm guessing numbers like 2 2 2 2 2 is best?
Windows XP Pro
Intel quad processor
No clue about what motherboard brand to go with. I have had bad luck with Gigabyte, I know that...
Thanks so much in advance!
Go with an ASUS board. I've been runing them for about 4 years and haven't haed a problem with them and I've run about 3 of them. Do yourself a favor though, make sure you run DDR2 Dual channel. You'll thank yourself for it.
And is it hard to actually build a computer.
I've had no experience building a computer before but I'm not bad with computers in general, I just really need to know what I need, where I put them and how do I get it working.
I've got a bit of a budget roughly £600-£750
What are you using the computer for? e.g. gaming (if so which games), video encoding or just general usage?
Does the budget include the monitor and peripherals and do you have any parts you're going to reuse (e.g. DVD drive, hard drive, case, etc.)?
I already posted a few days ago and got some great help and set me in the right direction i opted to try and see if i could balance out what i want and what i need with how much money i m comfortable spending I realised my current monitor only supports up to x resolution and has no hdmi inputs or anything si i decided i will also get a new monitor since is a better resolution to play games at I also went shopping for a gaming mouse and still need a keyboard but haven t settled on one yet I went with the amd simply because Ok build can computer? you Solved: rate gaming for this a i can t reallya fford to spend any more than i ve laid out a s a matter of fact its already over Solved: Ok can you rate this build for a gaming computer? budget after taxes but nearly dollars but i do think its a system i could be excited about but i need opinions and if its bad let me know i dont take it personal i still have approximately days until the purchase go s thru as well so time to think Anyways here it is Thermaltake V Black Edition ATX Mid Tower Case Black X X X INT Front USB Audio No PSU Usually ships in - business days In Stock BenQ G HD IN Widescreen Black LCD Monitor MS X HDMI DVI VGA Usually ships in - business days Add EXPRESS COVERAGE What s this In Stock Western Digital Caviar Black TB SATA GB S RPM MB Cache IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM Usually ships in - business days In Stock AMD Phenom II X Black Edition Quad Core Processor AM GHZ MB Cache W NM Retail Box Usually ships in - business days In Stock Gigabyte GA- XTA-UD AMD X ATX AM DDR PCI-E PCI CrossFireX GBLAN SATA USB Motherboard Usually ships in - business days In Stock Add NCIX EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN What s this G SKILL F - CL D- GBNQ PC - GB X GB DDR - CL - - - PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit Usually ships in - business days In Stock Powercolor PCS Radeon HD MHZ GB GHZ GDDR XDVI HDMI DP DIRECTX PCI-E IR- Usually ships in - business days In Stock Add NCIX EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN What s this Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreme Gamer BIT Sound Card PCI Retail Box Bilingual Usually ships in - business days In Stock Antec Earthwatts W Power Supply ATX V V EPS V Active PFC PLUS MM Fan Usually ships in - business days Antec power supplies are rated on continuous power In Stock Add NCIX EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN What s this Battlefield Bad Company Coupon - Save Off Purchase AT EASTORE COM AMD Promo Only In Stock Coolermaster Sentinel Advance Twin Laser Gaming Mouse Buttons DPI USB with Adjustable Lighting Usually ships in - business days In Stock PC Assembly and Testing with Year Limited NCIX System Warranty PRE-CONFIG WIN OS If Purchased Usually ships in - business days Assembly and testing requires an additional - business days to ship your order once all parts are in stock Does not include any water cooling or server CPU installation Year Limited Warranty on system components assembled by NCIX In Stock Shipping Estimate Postal Code Ground Shipping Promo- in stock items only Check to delete an item YOUR TOTAL That is all from the website www ncix com and does not include the tax i would be charged so the grand total would be approximately For what i m getting i think it s a decent deal but not sure i have also not done price matching yet suggestions nbsp
Its fine, nothing wrong with it as it is.
But are you aware the NCIX does price matching?
That same CPU is $189 @ TigerDirect: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicati...?EdpNo=5692033&csid=ITD&body=MAIN#detailspecs
Check all your parts against www.newegg.ca, www.tigedirect.ca, www.bestdirect.ca, www.directcanada.com, http://www.bewawa.com/
Also you may want to consider the newer Phenom II X6 processors, 6 cores versus 4 and Turbo mode to automatically overclock the cores as needed: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103851 Should be on par or better then the 965 in most things and should improve with newer games that are more multi-threaded.
You can also step up to the new AMD 800 series chipset, the 880 and 870 do not support Crossfire like the 790, but the 890's do if you did want CrossFire Support - only if you device to buy another HD 5850.
The board you choose is nice in the fact that it too has USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 support.
I am looking to build a gaming rig and it's been a while. I was hoping someone could point me to two things:
1) The hardware that is recommended
2) A reliable place online to get the parts
Based on my limited knowledge, I am guessing at things like;
10,000rpm drives - Raid 0
SLI or Crossfire video cards(2)
650 Watt P/S
2GB Memory, not sure what memory is low latency or how to tell, I'm guessing numbers like 2 2 2 2 2 is best?
Windows XP Pro
Intel quad processor
No clue about what motherboard brand to go with. I have had bad luck with Gigabyte, I know that...
Thanks so much in advance!
I am thinking of building a computer for gaming, etc. I am new to this, yet know my way around computers. (After owning a Compaq, you have to know something about computers to keep it running!!). What I need is some advice on what motherboard, CPU, etc. would give me the best performance. I am looking to build for about $2000. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
it hurts me to say it, but if you wanna make the best system you're gonna have to get an AMD athlon FX-55 "clawhammer" core. Get a gigabyte board, like the GA-K8NXP-SLI (nForce4 SLI Chipset) or something else with that Nforce 4 northbridge. yeah, this will run you quite a few bucks, but if you've got 2 grand then why not? a hot scsi or 10k RPM sata drive, some name brand ram, and an ati x850 card. i wish that there was an intel option, but the 700 dollar+ FX-55 is currently the best choice for said use.
My budget is $1000 dollars. I have been looking at the new Intel i7 processor but the 2.66 ghz with 130w or the AMD Phenom x4 940 deneb 3.0 ghz 4x512kb L2 cache 6 mb
I am looking to make a fast gaming pc
I know the con with i7 is that you need to use ddr3 ram which is a con about it so idk. I am looking to get 4 gb of ram and a good graphics card for gaming....
Just post some suggestions in this budget with all the component I will need
Already have a monitor and keyboard
Hey guys im looking to build a custom gaming computer to play the latest games on the highest settings, Im willing to go up to $2000 but would really like to keep it down to about $1000, I just want to know what parts I should get starting from scratch. Figuring in that i have to have hdmi and I have to have atleast 1tb hardrive, also I would like to have a case that has a window. I would really appreciate any help especially if you guys were to give me links thanks guys
Iv been gaming for years, but when my desktop crapped out, I decided to go looking for a new one.. Sadly with no job, my budget is a whopping $450.. Could anyone help me with minimum specs and or point me in a direction where I can find a prebuilt desktop.
There arent many gaming computers out there for that price. But you are in luck. There is a phenomenal Youtuber out there who makes a bunch of awesome videos regarding tech news and such. He also does videos about budget PCs every few months:
Instead of the case he chose, you should get this instead:

I have a budget around 600-900
Some musts I guess are a decent video card, (i prefer 8800) idc what company or brand
19 inch monitor, (lcd) I'm using a AL19W Acer, wouldn't mind getting a second one
Blu ray drive? lol ( prolly takes this way outa my money range)
If not, any 2 drives would work fine for me (dvd of course, budget xD)
IDC about hard drive space, i don't have that much crap, (250gb would probably be more than enough)
EDIT:: o yeah, I like vista (i know i'm wierd) it will probably require 2gb ram like my current
Games i'm looking to play are HL2 mods etc., call of duty 4, diablo, starcraft, counter strike
Help me! thanks.
I'll check forums often to answer questions
I don't mind newegg purchases although i would prefer amazon (since no tax for CA residents)
I want to build a gaming pc and I have choose these parts plz suggest me something if better than this and plz tell me all the parts are compatible with each other or not plz help me regarding this tx.

As for your build, what are you building it for? Gaming, office, digital editing?
If games, which top 3 games
Is it possible to build a $300 gaming build that can run games like TF2, WoW, SCII, Guild Wars 2 etc, and slightly older games on 15'' monitor?
I have Win xp, optical drive and hard drive already. Thanks in advance.
A 15" monitor? If the monitor is that old, the optical drive and hard drive probably are too which means they're IDE drives. New motherboards use SATA ports. You probably also can't find Windows XP chipset drivers for new boards and graphics cards.

I didn't know where else to post this, I'm new here.
I'm building a new PC for Christmas, and was wondering if anyone here would be able to tell me how it would run for games like L4D2, WoW, Borderlands, etc.
Intel Core i5
nVidia GTX 275
6 GB of G.SKILL RAM
550 Watt PSU
Those are the 'main' factors for the PC as far as I know.
If you need the rest of the specs let me know and I can post.
You might be cutting it close with a 550 watt PSU. What model of powersupply is it?

With that much going on and if you play on eventually upgrading, I'd suggest 800+ Watts PSU and for the PCU cooler a Tuniq tower could be nice.
When it comes down to mobo you should know EXACTLY what you need for you to choose the right one.

If u can help plaz do so i am trying to building a gaming pc & i need some assistance on what types of parts i need & how to go about building it :[/SIZE]
Refer to www.Alienware.com. Select any PC that you like under their Gaming Desktop section. Configure that PC to see some typical specs a gaming computer has.
Okay, I really want to build a gaming PC.
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO START.
So, I basically want to build a gaming computer for the experience of putting one together.
I'd rather have intel or AMD, whichever is fine.
My budget is anything, but $650-700 MAX.
Now, I know 650-700 is minimum for a GAMING computer (at least I think I know), but all I want to do on the computer is normal gaming. Like, not hardcore 4k thing or whatever, but just ONE monitor playing a simple game. I don't need ULTRA graphic settings on the game, low-medium but still high dps is absolutely fine. I just want to be able to play modern games smoothly.
I have an idea of some stuff I want, BUT I have NO CLUE with compatibility with these things. I don't know how to tell this stuff.
So could someone give me the parts of a good computer for a gamer such as I? I play WoW, D3, MC, L4D2, SMITE, etc.
I shoulda asked this earlier....today's Cyber Monday.. I NEED TO SQUEEZE IN SOME PURCHASES!
Thanks!! Please help me out

Hey everyone, I'm unsure which of the three HDD's below to go for. This is what my build will be:
MOBO: Asus P8P67
CPU: Inter Core i7 2600
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6950
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair HX-750W
CASE: Cooler Master HAF-922
DVD: ASUS DRW 24B1LT
And here are the three HDD's:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive (NZ$88.41)
Western Digital AV-GP 1TB SATA 3 Gb/s 7200RPM 64MB Cache (NZ$103.17)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 7200 RPM (NZ$130.92)
I'm quite keen on saving a bit of cash as I am spending more than I originally planned, but will there be a noticeable performance difference by going for the WD Black?
Thanks in advance!
Ah sorry, I meant Corsair HX-650 for the PSU
The best to get would be a 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3, if you can get one in NZ?
Hello I'm planning on building my PC during the winter and I was just wondering if there is any advice you guys could give me? Some dos or donts. I'm not to educated on computer parts so if you could help me decide which graphics card to get, nvidia or Radeon or any other ones.
My budget is $400-$600 so if there are any builds that are out there now that you recommend please let me know. (Ones that include mouse,monitor, and keyboard would be nice too)
And how often do computer parts come out? Would I find myself buying parts in a few months just to upgrade? I'm not looking to have 4k settings just be able to play upcoming games like the division fallout4 at pretty decent graphics and frames.
Thanks ahead of time!
I used the advices from :
and modified just a little bit.
I feel a bit hesitant about the motherboard because some reviews say that they come dead out of the box. However, the motherboard and CPU combo saves me a few so I chose that motherboard.
Also, do you guys think it is wise to wait til cybermonday/blackfriday to order these or do you think those really won't go on sale?

Hello everyone, I'm interested in building a gaming PC from scratch and really have no idea where to start. I've never built a computer before and the whole process is pretty intimidating to me. I'd also like to keep it fairly cheap. My budget is about $700. I don't need something top of the line, just something that can play games at decent settings. I'd like to use Windows 7 as the OS and I want to play games like Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Garry's Mod, etc. If you guys could recommend parts or even recommend an entire build that would be great. Let me know what you think, thanks.
I'm building myself a new computer, and I'm looking for someone to help me find some good parts. I'm a serious gamer, and the parts must reflect that. Anything goes, just 3 limitations:
1. AMD only
2. Asus mobo
3. Keep it under $1,200
Hi I want to build a new gaming need Build PC, help Gaming Want To pc I ve a Want To Build Gaming PC, need help little knowledge about hardware that s why I am looking for your help to build that to play high end games like NFS Most wanted unreal tournament max Payne and many more Well my budget is INR approx including processor I ve decided to go with AMD Athlon II x GHz socket a I won t buy any Intel stuff because they are twice in price and similar in performance against AMD in India I want to know which chip set is best for AMD mobos NVIDIA GeForce or AMD G For AMD G chip set I ve listed two motherboards available in India are - Biostar A GE Biostar TA GE M And for NVIDIA GeForce - MSI K N GM-FIH Motherboard I m also confused with Want To Build Gaming PC, need help which graphic card should I buy ATI or NVIDIA As I know a little bit about processor and mobos but when it comes to graphic cards I run out of words Because I m not experienced with any graphic card So I need your suggestions to choose right product to match the minimum requirement for high end games I ve seen some video cards and listed the best meets to my budget are - XFX ATI Radeon HD GB DDR HD- X-ZAHC Graphics card Sapphire ATI Radeon HD - GB DDR Graphics Card Palit NVIDIA GeForce GT GB DDR Super Graphics Card one more thing I want to know that can am processor run on mobo with am socket or will it affect on performance I ve bought gb DDR Ram MHz gb seggate hdd AOC quot lcd monitor and creative speaker I m currently using xp pro sp and will continue with it Waiting for your response THANKS And sorry for my poor English nbsp
Nvidia is better, and can easily play all those games.
I am new to building pc I have some experience though I just wanted some help I want to build I own my rig build to want gaming my pc and I want it to have the following specifications i processor latest some good motherboard with SLI PCI and all that stuff so I can upgrade it later geforce gtx I m planning later to get another one so I want some help with that too is it wise to put two gtx or should I just wait for the new series to come out also I want the SSD HDD gb ram also idk about the cooling should I get liquid cooling or I m also planning to overclock my CPU when I get the I want to build my own gaming rig second graphic card I will get a descent PSU so what do you think is it a good configuration also should I build it my self or go to the local store and get them to help me with it also what way is the best to get the parts since I m not from the states I want to build my own gaming rig I live in macedonia a small country next to greece so what advice can you give me thanks nbsp
I am new to building pc I have some experience though I just wanted some help I want to build my pc and I want it to have the following specifications... i7 processor latest... some good motherboard with SLI ,Click to expand...
The i7 is a good choice and I personally think it is the best way to go. As for motherboard, I'd stick to ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, or possibly ASRock.
PCI 3Click to expand...
I'm assuming you mean PCIe 3.0, PCI is an older card slot design.
and all that stuff so I can upgrade it later geforce gtx 590 I'm planning later to get another one so I want some help with that too is it wise to put two gtx 590 or should I just wait for the new series to come out....Click to expand...
As long as you can manage the heat issues that will arise from installing two GPU's.
also I want the SSD HDD ,Click to expand...
I'm assuming you know SSD and HDD are two different drives. You would want the SSD for a OS drive and the HDD for a storage drive.
32 gb ram...Click to expand...
8GB would be plenty for most cases. 16GB would probably be all you need. It's my opinion that 32GB would be massive over-kill for the general population.
also idk about the cooling should I get liquid cooling or ? I'm also planning to overclock my CPU when I get the second graphic card....Click to expand...
If you are planning on over-clocking and using two GPU's, water cooling is a safer way to go. You would need to speak with someone else though, as I have no experience with water cooling.
I will get a descent PSU so what do you think is it a good configuration ? also should I build it my self or go to the local store and get them to help me with it ...Click to expand...
I would say you are ready for your own build experience. Even if you make a mistake, you will still be happy after you have completed your objective. And after it is all said and done, you will never need someone else to build your PC's again.
also what way is the best to get the parts ? since I'm not from the states I live in macedonia a small country next to greece ...Click to expand...
unfortunately I don't know the answer to that question.

Hi there. I'm looking for a very good gaming PC that I will be able to run big games at decent quality and framerate. It'd also be nice to have a computer that can record these games without lag. I also would want a computer that would be performing well for at least 2 years.
Now after researching it was pretty obvious to me that the best way to go was build a computer. So could you guys tell me which parts I should use? Here is what I'm looking for:
- Great for gaming
- Will be able to let me record whilst playing
- I have no budget, but don't go over $2500
Thanks for reading
The Nvidia site has a recent blog post suggesting parts gaming or for Build $4,200 PC a $450 for a gaming pc They are not selling the parts well except for the video card but are just quoting current average prices for parts available elsewhere Build A GeForce GTX Micro ATX PC For Under GeForce Graphics Card - EVGA GeForce GTX Superclocked - Chassis - Cooler Master N Micro ATX Mini Tower - CPU - Intel Pentium G GHz Dual-Core Processor - Motherboard - MSI H M-P Micro ATX LGA - RAM - Crucial Ballistix Sport XT GB x GB DDR - Memory - Storage - Seagate Barracuda TB quot RPM Internal Hard Drive - PSU - EVGA W Certified ATX - Total Price - They didn't include a cost for the operating system Well Linux is free or maybe you have a retail copy of Windows to transfer The Intel Pentium G GHz cpu has a Passmark benchmark of PassMark - Intel Pentium G GHz - Price performance comparison

The CPU and motherboard are not compatible. The CPU is socket 1366 and the motherboard is 1156.
O.k. folks.I've read the posts about building a P.C. and I agree that not buying one from a box store. I am from canada and want to spend roughly 1500 U.S. for a decent gaming system. If I understand correctly there are three components NOT to scrimp on: 1) the cpu 2) the memory and 3) the video card.
There are so many choices.even within the cpu.p4 3.2 ht fsb or amd 64; and then memory.. ddr, ddr2, 3200, 4200; motherboards??? socket 370, 478,; video card. for gaming like doom 3 (XFX GeForce FX 5700 LE,ATI Radeon 9800XT???
I really want to get the biggest bang/value for the beaver
Going to bought from Newegg. Just would like your guys' thoughts and advice. Thanks
I currently have a PCI-E BFG 7900gt 256mb
I currently have a PSU that I know can support this build.

Please look at the sticky in the General Hardware forum and give us the required information.
I second Matthew's build as a great suggestion if it's within your budget.

Depending on the price of that TX650 I'd recommend the Rosewill Capstone 550/m or Seasonic g series 550.
Also it'd be nice to find a kit of 1866 RAM, which you can probably find at a similar price if you're lucky and there's some sales.
Also depending on the price you can probably get a Samsung EVO 250gb for a little cheaper.

You have an awesome system, pretty much at the top, no worries there. Probably your biggest hangup at the moment is your ram, actually. Up that to 2gb and you'll be flying. You'll want two sticks of 1Gb, not 4 sticks of 512, and you should look at getting a high performance make if you really are wanting to get performance.
What make is that ram you have now? Do you know what the timings are set at?
As for your CPU, not many games are using dual core at the moment (in fact, are there any?). The single core CPUs in general are performing better gamewise with their higher clockrates. BUT, hopefully the games that start coming out now will start taking advantage of dual core technology.
I am curious about the 433Mhz memory. I thought that 400mhz was the max. Need someone with more knowledge than I have to answer that.
As for your future upgrade options, at the moment the sky is your limit. Socket 939 is still the best for AMD, and PCI-e is still the best for graphics. That board should keep you at the top of the heap for a while to come.
Finally, just a warning for you (I have the same mobo). Your chipset fan may fail on you sometime in the near future. If you hear a freakishly loud noise all of the sudden, that's what it is.
Actually, take a look at your motherboard now. Is the chipset fan mounted parallel to the motherboard? I.e., square? (as opposed to being diagonally installed - a diamond shape)? The square mounted fan is the older type, and have a high percent chance of dying. Easily replaced, just a pain in the.....

Everything looks good, but if I were you, I would go with an AMD capable motherboard and processor. Intel i7's are great little processors, but AMD has been coming out with some processors that oust them completely. Especially if you are looking for a great gaming rig. That or maybe spend 1000 bucks and go for an Intel Extreme
Hi, I am looking to build a good gaming pc. Now here are the parts i have currently selected. please can you tell me if the would all go together or not and make any suggestions if possible.

please any suggestions must be made on sites from which i can order in GB rather than the US, thank you.
I don't think that you have any need for 6GB RAM as the Phenom II X4 955 does not have a triple channel memory controller. It would have been useful only with an i7 build.
A RAM cooler is also useless unless you're looking for extreme overclocks.
For the motherboard you'll be better off buying the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. You may also look into the MSI GD 70.
The 955BE is a brilliant overclocker. You should look into getting a good aftermarket CPU cooler.
For PSU, I would suggest the Corsair 650TX unless you absolutely require a modular one. The case could have been better. However, that's a question of personal tastes.
What GPU are you purchasing for this system?

I'm planning on building my first ever gaming pc and need some help with the components, making sure they are compatible and also need help selecting a video card. Here's what I have so far:
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5 GHz LGA1150
Hard Drive: Seagate NAS ST2000VN000 2TB
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB
RAM: G.Skill Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8gb)
Power Supply: SeaSonic X Series X-850 850W
OS: Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you all in advance!
Ok few questions first.
What kind of games are you looking to play?
What type of monitor and how big are you going to use?
How MANY monitors?
What kind of graphics settings are you wanting to run these games on? Max, high?
These questions will basically help us determine if your system is correct or maybe possibly overkill or whatnot.

I’m hoping to spend around $1800 with a monitor and other accessories, which I’ll have in a month so hopefully some prices will go down a little by then. I need this PC for Dynagen (a very CPU intensive Cisco router emulator), gaming , and encoding HD video. I’m not sure about my processor choice because I have always built computers using AMD but I’ve heard better things about the new Intel processors. Any suggestions?

COMMENTS ON PART LISTNG
I chose the 3570K as I am open to overclocking. However, still deciding if I should just go with the new Haswell 4670 since I've read that overclocking doesn't really show results for a gaming rig + not sure if I'm confident enough of overclocking.
Many builds I've seen that use the 3570K utilize this motherboard so I guess it goes pretty well with the Ivy Bridge.
SSD for installing of the Windows 7 OS and the HDD for installation of games and the like.
My 2nd choice as of the moment. Open to possible SLI/Crossfire configurations but unsure of which graphic cards are worth dual-pairing right now. VERY open to suggestions and opinions on this. Main choice is the new SAPPHIRE R9 280X 3GB TOXIC Edition but currently not available in my country. Hopefully it'll be released over the course of this month.
Read good reviews about this case. Ideally a Mid Tower, other considerations are :
-NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($105.98 @ Newegg)
-Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Enough for possible overclocking?
Any feedback and suggestions greatly appreciated. Like I've said I'm new to building a gaming rig so I am willing to put careful thought into any opinions put forward.

This is what I created was wondering any suggestions. First build all parts are incomming, build was 420$ after shipping ect. Just wondering if I did decent in a first build I was on a budget for 450$ thankfully I had a windows 7 disk/key.
Are my hopes to high or am I going to be able to play modern games at mid setting decent resolutions.
Only other questions is about Network Card, Sound Card suggestions. Something cheaper but worthy.
I have assembled the following hardware to build my first gaming rig and would like to know if this is a good choice of items.

Thanks in Advance for your feed back!
A few suggestions
I think you should go with an ATX sized motherboard, the case that you have has more than enough room for one, and the extra expansion slots might come in handy one day. The Asrock extreme 4 is a good choice.
You definitely don't need a 850W PSU, a 650W will supply more than enough juice to run your rig, and will leave plenty of room to install a second graphics card if needed. The other advantage is that you can get a better quality one for the same price, such as this one.
If your budget allows it, you may want to consider upgrading your graphics card. Something like HD 7850 will give you bucket-loads more performance, and make the build more gaming oriented. If your strapped for cash, you could always downgrade your HDD and purchase more storage later if needed.
I'm not sure I'm going to do this as to my surprise I'm not experiencing any gaming problems with an EVGA FTW and an X MB and first generation I X processor But if I do make a change and put this EVGA in a proper PCI lane instead of I would consider something like this Corsair Obsidian Case D Intel Skylake i - K CPU Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO MB Corsair Vengeance Mem LPX GB x DDR Asus BW- B ST X Blu-ray Reader Corsair Hydro Series H i mm Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler CW- -WW EVGA Gaming Please PC New Build Opinions SuperNOVA G W Fully Modular Power Supply -G - -VR TOTAL Canadian Dollars I would of course use my FTW my existing hard New PC Gaming Build Opinions Please drives and sound card I was thinking of a Haswell I K and compatible MB but just thinking that Haswell is two generations older than Skylake CPU's Any comments for better quality performance at reasonable price points are welcome BTW would these changes give me a Windows activation problem given I'm keeping my hard drives Would a clean install work given New PC Gaming Build Opinions Please I have a USB with Windows My user password would be the same as this Alienware would go to a nephew and I would put back the original Windows on it from CD How about added case fans Archie you have a similar case I think
That looks like a really good build. As far as activation, the new MB will be an issue. You may be able to call MS and get it, not surehttp://www.tenforums.com/pc-custom-builds-overclocking/60252-new-pc-gaming-build-opinions-please.html

I do not plan on overclocking anything myself, unless it came overclocked.Click to expand...
Then why buy a overclocker's CPU? The 'K' versions of i7s are multiplier unlocked, meant for overclocking. Of course if price is the same as normal 2600 then by all means go for it
Figure out how to install a SSDClick to expand...
The same way you install any hdd.
Figure out how to install Windows 7 from a CDClick to expand...
It's a DVD and you set the PC to boot from it.
Should I buy better thermal compound? Any suggestions?Click to expand...
It doesn't make any difference as you're not overclocking.
Difference between DDR3 1066 and 1600?Click to expand...
You won't see any. A few percentage in most applications.
Should I upgrade to 8GB?Click to expand...
The more the better if you ask me
Just make sure you install 64-bit OS.
Is 750W enough for my system now? Is it enough if I wanted to have two GTX 560s?Click to expand...
It should be enough for both.
Do NZXT cases only support NZXT case fans? I've read that NZXT fans aren't all that great, should I get some other fans?Click to expand...
As long as the fan holes are standard 80/120/something mm, you shouldn't have any problems with other fans. I don't know about NZXT fan quality.
I am going to be building a new computer on a budget. I was wondering if anyone could suggest bits of hardware to include in the build. Only AMD parts please. Things I need are:
Hard Drives (or SSD)
Budget is anywhere between 400 - 600 pounds.
Thanks in advance.

Realistically. Is the learning curve steep?Click to expand...
Realistically, it would save you very much money at that price point, well worth it.
Since everything plugs right in, if it doesn't fit in that slot you're doing it wrong, so its fairly easy to build a computer now...it shouldn't take more than a couple hours at most. Again, well worth it.
