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.)
Something like this is a good base. You can get a slightly lower motherboard, leave out the sound card, and put more money into GPU and PSU. Other people can help with that.
Do you need to purchase a Windows license, monitors, kb/mouse?
Hi everyone, recently I switched from my mini-itx board P8Z77-I to my old Z77A-GD65, since then I'm having stability issues.
My 2500k was stable at 1,32v, cooled by an H100i, my GPU is at @1200/1500, also tested and stable (7870xt), but now randomly the system hangs, with no bsod, mostly while gaming but also one time while I was using Chrome with a bunch of tabs opened, including YT; only one time I got a bsod, full report attached
Thanks in advance, Gabriel.
I built the PC and have all the hardware installed. The disc that came with the mother board is in the reader drive. No signal is detected by the monitor. I am unsure if it has a BIOS.
here is a link to my parts list
i have reseated everything twice with no results.
have u plugged in the TWO power plugs on the motherboard
have u plugged the power for the video card
have u checked the case to mobo power wire is in the right spot
the video card u have requires a minimum of 500w power supply.......... u have purchased a corsair cx 500 which is not up to the job, while being a fine psu for onboard video........it is underpowered for your system
the motherboard u chose is a tad low end see reviews here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

dang only 1230 bucks...not bad
ps...im not a pc guru lol
Hello, I'm building my first gaming rig. Any suggestions on better parts or missing parts would be greatly appreciated. My budget is aroudn 650. Im trying to get as much performance as i can.
list the part with the link
what psu it will need to up here
80% quality 750w or better
corsair tx.hx.ax models only
always buy case and psu as separate items
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 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.

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 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

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?
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
Well, since nobody else replied, here is a start: http://www.techspot.com/guides/buying/page3.html
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.

The CPU and motherboard are not compatible. The CPU is socket 1366 and the motherboard is 1156.

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?

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.
Grand Total 1,254.00
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?

Did I do it right? Most important to me are the GPU s New build gaming pc.

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.....

Hello I was wondering what people think of this DIY gaming pc from new egg.
The Mods don't like double posting for the same topic. I have requested this be closed by a Mod.

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 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.
I am planning on building a gaming PC with a budget of around $900 Australian dollars and this is the list of components I have come up with.
Graphics card: $225.15
Leadtek WinFast GTX 560 Ti 1GB GDDR5
Xigmatek Asgard II
Power supply unit: $85
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply
MSI P67A-GD55 (B3)
Intel Core i5-2500K
Hard drive: $90
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB
Optical drive: $20
LG GH22NS50 DVD Burner
Network card: $13
TP-Link TL-WN350GD 54M Wireless
G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL 4GB (2x 2GB)
I Have done quite a bit of research on these components but would like to clarify a few questions.
Are all of these components completely compatible with each other?
Will all of the components fit into the case?
Am I getting the best price and value for all of the components?
Do you have any suggestions to change a component?

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.
I've decided that I want to build myself a gaming PC for the first time in my life and my budget is around around eight hundred dollars. To those who has experience on building gaming PCs, how would you budget on what to spend more of on the parts and less on other parts?
Mainly I need to get:
Is this a good build to play newer shooter games and games like the witcher 3

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!

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.

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

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.
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???

Dont need a mouse or keyboard or monitor, I am considering watercooling for quieter overclocking.
Is there supposed to be a question in there? Everything looks fine but it seems like you're over spending in some areas.
For all the money you're spending I would go with a much faster main drive and then maybe the WD 2TB for storage.
Something like a 600GB WD VelociRaptor or a single/RAID SSD.
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

A better ssd, use an air cooler like Noctua D14 or 15, phanteks,stronger psu for future sli or crossfire 750 or 850,something like a 450mbp dual band for wireless or something in the ac wireless class, 8gigs would serve you well but 16 is nice to have. Last but not least I7 for just gaming is really just paying far to much for just gaming. One of the newer I5s would serve just aswell and save you a dollar. While the build would run okay, Its price to performance is grossly off. You are building a overclocker that cant overclock.
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Freaksamcker/saved/BTwkcf As far as ram wise, the fastest ram within your budget.( 8gigs) Make sure the air cooler will fit in your case.

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.

Closing duplicate thread.
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?

Hi guys! as a general novice to computers, I jumped in at the deep end, and will try to build a gaming pc (or at least be shown to by my dad!). but as a novice, I would like some suggestion on what bits of kit to buy, with a few requirements:
EVERYTHING must play nice with each other
it must be capable to run diablo 3, guild wars, minecraft/tekkit, gnomoria, and TF2
the maximum budget would be around £300.
Any and all suggestion will be appreciated, and thanks in advance
PS: sorry if this is in the wrong place, rather noobish to this site
First thing's first, £300 is a pretty damn tight budget for any computer, let alone a gaming pc, so don't be expecting anything too mind-blowing.
to get you started, I'm gonna assume you live in the UK so we'll be using www.SCAN.co.uk for your purchases.
Before we go any further, could you tell us a few things:
- Do you already own peripherals? (monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers)
- Do you have a copy of windows, or will we need to buy one?
- Do you have any parts you can re-use from elsewhere? (HDD, Optical drive, etc.)
- Is there any way you can raise your budget? like I said before, £300 is pretty darn tight.
Try to give us as much information as possible - help us help you
Well, I am looking to build a gaming pc that runs fairly demanding games like Grand Theft Auto IV and BattleField 4 on high settings with at least 60 FPS.
What do you recommend for parts?
I had posted a long time back that I was looking to build a new PC http www techspot com vb really do I buy some advice Build PC? could Gaming or with topic html However I put the whole idea off due to finance and other priorities I wish to now do this for real but I have little knowledge I m an amateur And I m not sure how much Build or buy Gaming PC? I could really do with some advice I should spend My budget is and I d prefer to buy the parts separately and put it all together But how much money will this save me Realistically Is the learning curve steep I m also aware that the following companies websites sell pre-built machines but there s so much choice it kills my brain My last PC had a Pentium GHz Tech has developed so much since then I just don t know where to start alienware co uk meshcomputers com scan co uk overclockers co uk novatech co uk microdirect co uk cyberpowersystem co uk cclonline com pcspecialist co uk slayerpc com kobaltcomputers co uk easypc-uk com arbico co uk advancetec co uk yoyotech co uk nbsp
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.

With that budget, you can easily get an Intel based system. I think AMD is a better choice though since it leaves room for a better GPU. This is what I recommend: http://goo.gl/JW4Tt6. If you need Windows 7, I will need to downgrade some components.
I don't know if this is the topic/forum. I was wondering if this pc build could play all of the following.
Grand theft auto V(GTA5 for when it comes out)
Grand theft auto IV
battle field 3
battle field 4
all metro city's
And a lot of games like that to medium-high-max settings.
If I posted this on the wrong forum i'm sorry.

If you're looking at the best possible single card solution, price no bar, then the Radeon HD 5970 is the one I would choose.
Else the GTX 480 is definitely worth considering. It does provide better performance, albeit at a higher price point, than the HD 5870. You'll be paying a 20% premium for approximately a 15 - 20% performance boost.
As for cons, the GTX 480 is slightly inefficient having high power consumption and temperatures.

If you are not planning on overclocking the CPU, then you can drop off the Arctic Shield 5 Thermal Compound (which you have listed twice by the way). Thermal compound comes with most CPU's, and it works just fine as long as you are not overclocking too much.
You will need to up the RAM to 8GB (4GB is just meeting the minimum requirements on most newer games). Having 8GB of ram will give you that "Buffer" zone to be able to play all the games for at least a couple years.
You only put in a 120GB SSD drive. You will have that filled with the Operating System and maybe a couple games and not have enough room for anything else. I would suggest for now, dumping the SSD drive and getting at least a 500GB to 1TB 7200rpm hard drive.
Should also get a DVD/Bluray drive.
You will also have to factor in the cost of an Operating System.
Those are my few suggestions, I know other people will be adding in theirs too. Hope this helps you out some.
Hello I was wondering what graphics card/CPU and mobo are cheaper and better for my new theoretical gaming build (im in the uk)
AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor
Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card
If you're serious about gaming....I'd go with the GTX 970, you'd be much happier with it in the long run. Plus it will play any game out there.http://www.pchelpforum.com/computer-diy/126892-new-gaming-pc-build-advice.html
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.
A friend of mine is wanting to build a computer for himself,
he wants to find the best possible system he can make for £600.
He's planning to play a lot of games on it as well as the usual e-mails,movies,music etc.
Whats the best combination you can come up with,
Just to start him off with the Motherboard and Processor combo would be very useful.

Looks good to me. All reliable, and all will work together. I might quibble over the Q8200 vs 8400, but only if the prices are decent. You are overdoing it on the Power Supply, but I am a strong believer that the power supply deserves all the quality that you put into the motherboard.
Please let us know how it all works together when finished.

If you're going to dish out some money on a nice graphics card like that, and you want to leave your options open for the future, I'd go for a 600W power supply which should cost you at least $60. Don't buy bad quality PSUs.
Your graphics card can more than handle a 20" monitor.
Cooling shouldn't be an issue providing you install the CPU fan correctly and have a 120mm fan or 2 80mm fans in the case

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

Hello and welcome to the forums!!
Memory[RAM]: Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory, Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
I am a little confused with this line. Are you going to get two 4gb sticks of ram for a total of 8gb or are you getting both 4gb sticks and 1 8gb stick for a total of 16gb?
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 all I m thinking of building a new PC I bought an Nvidia GTX to get New Programs for PC 3D Build & Gaming my graphics up to date along with a Watt power supply from Corsair but now I m looking for a motherboard with a decent amount of RAM and a good processor I don t need a new hard drive as I already have a TB internal hard drive and New PC Build for Gaming & 3D Programs a New PC Build for Gaming & 3D Programs TB external hard drive so I should be good in that department I also have the biggest case possible for a PC I was just wondering what motherboard processor and RAM I should go for I m wanting it to last at least years before I have to upgrade again I m using a quad core AMD processor with GHz but even though New PC Build for Gaming & 3D Programs it s good I feel like it suffers a lot particularly in MMOs and processing videos I m studying video game design as well so I have access to UDK and Unity and often use Sony Vegas as well as Photoshop CS Obviously I don t have them all up at the same time but I have about tabs on Chrome open as well as iTunes and a D software package So my questions are what should I buy And will the new equipment be powerful enough for the things I want to run Obviously gaming-wise I want everything to be on max graphics The real issue I have at the moment is that rendering for D packages takes an age I made a small wave motion on Realflow the other day and it took hours to process a -second clip Granted the thing had about a million particles but it shouldn t take that long I m also considering buying a motherboard bundle just so that I don t have to worry too much about compatibility etc I just want to plug it in and play nbsp

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.
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
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.
Okay guys, instead of upgrading my pc, im going to build a budget gaming pc.
My current choices are,
OS- Windows 7 64bit
RAM- i need a good(cheap) price on 4 Gigs of RAM, that fits this motherboard. Link please?
HDD- Does http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2795126&CatId=139 fit the motherboard? if not,
Can someone please give me a link on what HDD fits, thats around 500GB and in between $50-$100?
I cant think of anything else besides a video card that i need, anything else thats cheap and will make the build better will be very helpful.
Why not get everything from newegg, comes with the same single shipping costs, also lower prices... The same hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136073
You will need a power supply, and on deciding what kind of one, we'd need to know what kind of a graphics card you're going to use. Without knowing, I'd just recommend something that will power just about anything you might have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005
If you don't absolutely want an orange case, you could cut 10$ off by getting the black version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146025

Those specs are solid for a Gaming PC. However, I'm positive you will save money if you just built it yourself. Also, that list doesn't include a PSU. So, you will need to pick a PSU for your build. The PSU is one of the most important parts. Thus, you always want to pick something with good build quality.
Is your budget $1275ish?
If you're open to building the machine yourself. I am sure myself or someone here could help you build a machine best for your budget.

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.
So I just decided to become a PC gamer I ve always been a console gamer and I hear that it is cheaper better than one you can buy online so anyways I ve watched tons of tuts on how to build one and I m pretty confident in myself so I went on Amazon com a website I use all the time and looked up all of the essential parts for my budget and here are the specs keep in mind that this is for Battlefield GTA V ETC is a Think this PC gaming good build?

Question: What is your budget? This info will go a long way in helping us help you. If you are going hard drive I suggest the Western Digital Black Series over the Seagate.
Also, consider NewEgg.com's site as you research.

what do you want this to do
media ,what you mean ,watch or make or edit.
is this just the box or the monitor and speakers/keyboard/mouse
I saw a deal on a Emachine pretty good
if you like to build them
you must start with cpu work your way back
any top end video editing would use a dual cpu or at least dual core
nothing under 2ghz 1mb cache 800fsb
with ddr2 533 or abouts 2gb memory
sound card ok make sure board takes pci-e 16x
watch out for olde sound card like sb090 audigy can be hard to install drivers
go with Sound Blaster X-Fi
wd is ok but I use seagate I don't use any over 200gb eggs i none basket so to speak
dvd burner 20x nec sata
and a good 600 watt PSU
I think you'll find it fast enough
ASUS is a good maker of boards
I put together a list of parts for my first gaming PC for under here is the list of parts http pcpartpicker com user Linkin saved jTfRsY What do you guys think Please tell me if all the parts are compatible good quality and what settings this build is able to play Dying Light The Evil Within Skyrim Minecraft Max Payne Metro Last Light Bioshock Infinite and a few other games and how much FPS I will most likely be able to get this PC and everything else like the monitor OS optical drive keyboard mouse and anything else in July because right now I have and my birthday is in July I usually get around - from my whole family I will also sell my laptop for because on a site it said it is worth that much I might make a few extra bucks through that time so I will have about - I might be able to get better parts if I do get that much Anyway I hope you guys can help and PLEASE as best as you can try to estimate how good it can handle some of the games I listed above it will be a HUGE help thanks a lot guys nbsp
Get a SSD drive for the boot drive, it will make things load faster, keep the hard drive for u'r down loads, program files, and things that do have to load as fast. and I would advise getting a modular PSU it will make keeping the wires in the case a whole lot cleaner, because u do not have near as many wires connected that way.
I m building a new system completely from scratch and I have two main questions I want to make sure that I don t have any hardware compatibility issues Also it would be good to know if everything will fit in the case I picked out It will be a family computer but I also like to game a lot Laptop has hard time with Dishonored I want a powerful yet quiet system Also my wife isn t too into flashy or huge cases which is why I picked out the one I did My soft budget is about but I m willing to go a little above that if needs be In the past we ve been using laptops I have a Dell XPS -L x for all our computing needs but our kids are getting old enough to need to use the computer as well as me and my wife so it s time to get a desktop The only component I already have is the OS Other than that will need to buy everything I chose to not get a liquid cooling system as I m not very savvy when it comes to those If you guys have any upgrade suggestions please let me know Here are the specs all pricing from Amazon com--free shipping and slightly cheaper than Newegg Motherboard ASUS Sabertooth X LGA Intel X SATA Gb s build advice PC Gaming USB ATX Processor Intel Core i - K Quad-Core Processor Gaming PC build advice GHz MB Cache LGA CPU Heatsink Fan Cooler Master Hyper Plus Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX FTW GB GDDR Thermal Paste Arctic Cooling Arctic MX- Thermal Compound Optical Drive LG BLACK Internal SATA x Super Multi DVD Blu Memory Corsair Vengeance GB x GB DDR MHZ PC Network Card Intel PWLA GT PRO GT PCI Network Adapter Wireless Network Card TP-Link TL-WN N Mbps Wireless N PCI Adapter SSD Crucial m GB -Inch Solid State Drive SATA Gb s HDD Western Digital Caviar Green TB SATA III MB Cache Bare OEM HDD Fan VANTEC HDC- A Aluminum Hard Drive Cooling System Sound Card ASUS XONAR D - Channel PCI Audio Card Sound Card Case Corsair Carbide Series Black R Mid-Tower Computer Case Case Fans Arctic Cooling ARCTIC F PWM mm Fans x for max cooling Anti-Vibr Gaming PC build advice Fan Mounts Any Anti-Vibration Fan Mounts enough for all fans Power Supply Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold SPG Watts Modular Power Supply Power Supply Gasket Any Power Supply Anti-Vibration Rubber Fan Gasket Speakers Creative Inspire T Multimedia Speaker System Monitor Asus VS H-P -Inch Full-HD LED Monitor x p Camera Creative Live Cam Chat HD P MP Webcam Black USB Expansion NZXT IU Internal USB Expansion Mouse and Keyboard Logitech Wireless Combo Mk With Keyboard and Laser Mouse Total nbsp
A couple things:
Firstly, you have a MOBO & CPU incompatibility. Your MOBO is for socket 2011 CPU's while your processor is LGA 1155
Here is a compatible motherboard for your build.
Asus Sabertooth Z77 LGA 1155 ($239.)
Secondly, I wouldn't waste my money on the: Network card, extra case fans,HDD fan,PSU gasket, and fan mounts. I would put all that money in your CASE budget and look for a more solid case. All those fans would do the exact opposite of what you'd like to achieve. You want a quiet machine, you do not put 9+ fans inside of it.
Thirdly, Id recommend buying something like the Corsair H100i for your cooling needs. I did notice you said you're not "Savy" enough for liquid cooling. However, these closed loop solutions require no real experience to install. Furthermore, they require zero maintenance.
Also, I wouldn't grab the 4GB 670. You will not need all of that VRAM. Instead, go with the 2GB version it's much cheaper.
Your power supply is also overkill. Unless you plan on running 3 GPU's 1000 watts is not necessary. I would go with aCorsair HX Series 850W. This will give you some room for future upgrades.
Even then, If you want. Id grab the 650 or 750w variation of that PSU. It will save you some money.
EDIT: Added GPU recommendation & PSU recommendation
