Building a Computer, opinions needed :)

Recommended Posts

Okay so i have a slight budget on this particular build and im trying to make a general short coming gaming rig.

Now my original Idea was to use the i5 intel Ivy Bridge Processor shown in link below:

But then I see the i7 Sandy Bridge, and I am not sure which would better suit the build. Link below is the i7

I've also never been good with picking out mobos, but this: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131837 is my current pick for use with the i5, but if anyone has any opinions on which processor or mobo would fit better with the build, I would love to hear any and all opinions with reasoning.

 

Tech Specs of build:

8GB DDR3 Ram

1.5TB HD Storage Drive

120GB SSD

750W Power Supply

GPU undecided (between http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814127608 or http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130593

 

 

Im not trying to break benchmarks, but make a lasting system for a mid range gaming rig.

 

Thanks in advance

I came here to suggest getting an SSD, but you already have that covered. =D>

 

I'm not very well versed on the finer points, but that seems to be quite good so far with the choices you have left.

Yea I was originally iffy on a SSD but after looking more into it they definitely improved on performance and stability, and price thank god lol.

 

But yeah CPU, Mobo and Graphics card are what im trying to figure for my last bit. Also not too sure if I go with the i7 and a different Mobo if my 750W PSU will be enough to power it all on heavy loads.

i5-2500k would still be good unless you want to do video editing then getting the new line would prob be best. ASrock z68 mobo and those gpu's look fine.

If you're planning on gaming only then go for the i5 3570k, if you plan to use programs for video edditing and such then I would go for a 2600k. The motherboard you chose is good for the i5, supports SLI/Xfire, usb 3.0, and has a 3 year warranty. As for the GPU I would recommend going for the 570, it is more powerful compared to the 560 Ti. Don't forget to add an aftermarket CPU heatsink, if you plan on overclocking that is.

I'd rather get the Radeon 7850 as it can OC to the level of a GTX 580 without a hike in power consumption (well, not enough to be not worth it).

Really? Cause as I recall it was you who was the one cussing me at base. Also, re-read what you just said: one 15 second delay (which is an exaggeration to begin with) ruins floor times? You are beyond ridiculous.
