Trigger ready to be pulled; Requesting assistance

#1Sparta19Posted 9/24/2013 10:16:33 AM
I don't know if anyone will remember my old topic but I came here earlier this month asking for help to build a PC with a $1200-1400 CAD range. After some discussions, gastaman came up with this list for me: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/1xjfi

I couldn't get it right away due to lack of funds but I have saved up the money now. However, over the passed time I realized I don't necessarily need a computer that powerful right now and it would be nice to save those extra bucks. So with that said, I would like to request for some help to build a PC with a $900 budget.

Request: Would like help in building a PC with a $900 CAD budget, willing to raise to 1K if needed.
Goal: To run Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn on respectable settings with that budget.

Notes: I prefer Windows 7 as my OS. Monitor, speakers, mouse, and other misc. hardware is/will be taken care off elsewhere so no need to include them.

Big, big thank you in advance and to those who have helped in my past topic.

gastaman, you deserve an award for the work you do on this board. I notice the "compatibility issue" at the bottom though, isn't that something to worry about?

It isn't a big deal, but if it bothers you, you can change the RAM out with the one in the build from you first post. Only raises cost about $10.

Hey guys, going to set my orders tomorrow, turns out I may be able to squeeze a few extra dollars in there. I'm going by gastaman's list he gave me, all I did was replace the case with a Zalman Z11 Plus (i'm a sucker for LEDs):

If there's a MUST upgrade please say so now. My first instinct was to upgrade the CPU cooler but i've seen praise for the 212 EVO on here so I assume it's fine as is, but please, if there's something I should upgrade right now rather than later (for both safety and convenience) don't be afraid to say so.

Do you overclock and/or plan to use Crossfire?
#7Sparta19(Topic Creator)Posted 9/26/2013 4:15:38 PM
I'm going to be honest, I have never overclocked any computer ever in my life, and no I don't plan to Crossfire.

If you have enough extra in the budget, get a 7970 instead of a 7950.
