Hey all, I'm pretty new to PCs and I've decided to build one from scratch. I've done some research and had a really awesome employee at Micro Center help me out big time. Here's what I'm currently looking to get along with prices. Let me know what you all think; if prices are good, pieces are good etc. Thanks!
Processor: Intel i5 - 3570 $189.99 Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Pro4 1155 ATX $69.99 RAM: Corsair 8GB (the Blue ones) D3 1600DIM C9 <- don't know if you need that info HDD: Seagate, 1 TB 3.5 SATA 7200RPM Case: I have a few in mind; any suggestions? (around 50 dollars or so) Power Suppy: OCZTECH 600W MODXSTREAM PRO APFC $74.99 Disc Drive: is 16.99. Nothing special. Video: EVGA GTX560 1 GB $199.99 OS: Windows $99.99 --- (b^_^)b Snake "A strong man doesn't need to read the future. He makes his own."
hey there. I made some changes/suggestions for you:
Processor: Intel i5 - 3570k $189.99 Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 1155 ATX $89.99 RAM: Corsair 8GB HDD: Seagate, 1 TB 3.5 SATA 7200RPM Case: NZXT Source 210/CM HAF 912 $38/$60 Power Suppy: antec HCG 520w $79.99 can save on a psu buying online Disc Drive: is 16.99. Nothing special. Video: EVGA GTX560 1 GB $199.99 - choose another card for $200 OS: Windows $99.99
it would be to your advantage to buy the gpu, power supply and maybe the case and ram online. you'd come out a bit cheaper or with better stuff or both. --- "There is nothing new under EA." - Fony http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2363251
