Not to much of a difference. IT really only is used when you play a game with a huge draw distance. But by all means get the 4GB
Looks perfect. If you cut the price you would be taking away it's reliability. If you plan to crossfire you will need a more powerful PSU
Looks like a good build. Way out of my 650$ budget XD
Usually it does not matter which brand you pick, they last about the same age. It would help to get a extra 120mm fan to help cool down the Case, since heat is bad for circuits. SLI and Crossfire is when you get 2-4 of the same GPU and "combine" them. Some games support it and some do not. SLI is for nVidia and Crossfire is for AMD.
You won't be able to go higher than medium on most games, if that, because you have no dedicated GPU. The specs you list are already bad to start out with. If you do want to go through with this and not save up more money to where it is actually worth it then i suggest instead of 1x4GB RAM you get 2x2GB RAM to utilize the duel channel. And the operating system, you should use a friends disk and with the money it takes to buy the OS you go get a AMD GPU which will do semi-crossfire with the IGPU on your CPU. It would be worth it.
Looks perfect to me. Any cheaper and you would be sacrificing reliability.
Just checking but, you are planning to upgrade that system right? or get a new one.
O and do you already have a HDD because 60GB SSD will not not it :P
Sure you need 32GB od RAM? Sound card is included in the motherboard. As far as GPU's go, AMD ones have been noted to to be better for multiple monitors.
For HDD's i trust Westerd Digital and Seagate. For SSD's i like corsair or Kingston.
Your build looks good but for $7 more dollars you can get ram that's DDR3-1866 instead of your DDR3-1333 on your build. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/calderhutchins/saved/1Cp7
Made you a build that is in your budget and is costly. It's about $1600 and has one GPU with enough watts on the PSU for crossfire. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/calderhutchins/saved/1CoY If you want any changes just ask :)
I'll go build you one. Is there anything you already have, like a keyboard,mouse,os ect?
My parts don't make sense, they make dollars :p
Sweet, thankx for that info :)
Thought it was copy/pasted.
Then i suggest the 2nd one i mentioned.
Was just for lols. And if it was the worst build i would not have a processor.
Was just for lols.
Nice, let's see what is mine. Standard 101/102-Key about 11 years old :|
No the one that gives you a permalink for example: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/HC6s Unless you are using it and just posting a different way.
Ok so it was hard finding a good case for much less. But here ya' go
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-case-blackbone That one is good but has a bright from LED light, just warning you :P. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-case-challenger That Case is just a litle cheaper but it is VERY good. It comes with two 120mm fans and a 140mm fan.
I'll research you some good cheap cases :)
Why not get this bad boy if money is not a issue?
Talk about a budget...
You do not have a Optical Drive, do you plan on installing the OS through USB then?
It's good for starters but do you really need the 1 TB of HDD space? If you get a 500GB you can shave off 20$ to put into 8GB of ram instead of two . Are you planing to OC your CPU? if not then take out the CPU cooler since your CPU comes with one.
Please use the wonderful pc builder this site offers, it would be way easier for you and i to comprehend.
Give yourself enough PSU watts to upgrade :)
Looks good to me. The 550 TI should play most games on high settings at a reasonable 38-49 fps.
Well i did say "may i suggest" . Since you are set on a apu You might not know but if you put a AMD GPU in your system the dedicated GPU will hybrid crossfire with the APU to provide greater performance.
Can you link to a editable build?
I myself prefer GIGABYTE but it's not the company that matters it's the quality.
I agree with moxie. The new Intel HD Graphics are not that bad and perform quite a bit better than some dedicated GPU's. As for your RAM it is good you picked that speed but it would be more economical and improve the speed if you got two sticks of 2GB now one stick of 4GB. Now if you go with your build then Your GPU should play most games on medium but no higher. Some more intensive games will have to be on low. Other than that i see no problems.
Just in case, you never know he might get into gaming more.
I said 800Wats for a crossfire. He currently ahs a 2GB 7870 and that is no card for light gaming.
May i suggest a 3rd generation i3 processor, they are more up to date and quite a deal more efficient. Get the one that you like most, it should be about the asme price as your one on that build. The GHz is not everything :)
So what games will you be playing? What settings do you want, what fps? And what resolution is your monitor?
That's how the forum works? I thought it just bumped everything i comment on for me.
CAS 8, impressive. Anyway i am skeptical with your CPU since it is a pentium. If i were you i would go for a 3rd Gen i3, they only cost about 136 $ for a good one and are pretty fast.
Please do not buy local. Most parts come with free shipping and at lower costs. The gas to get there would cost more than shipping lmao.
Anyway i notice you have a motherboard that is not very good. I would suggest a H77 or Z77 AsRock or Gigabyte motherboard. Also if you plan to do crossfire your PSU would not be able to support both cards, i suggest a 800W PSU.
New and better than before.. 51k XD
It's 51k now :P I ended up running out of PCI-Express slots XD
Yes two sound cards, one for sound one for looks :P
Those are some sexy cases
