$800 gaming PC for 1080p - can you help me?

Hello! I have an $800 budget to spend on a new gaming computer! This budget does not include moniter, keyboard, mouse, or OS. I will be gaming at 1080p, so I figured $800 could get me a nice computer for my needs :)


Thanks for any help you can provide!

This is what I would get:


Much bettter performance-wise than the other two builds above me.

Basically the same as nregner's build except i found a cheaper case and threw in an ssd with the extra money. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1bxsb

PSU : Corsair CMPSU 650TX

MotherBoard: ASUS H87-Pro

CPU: Intel core I5 4570

Memory: Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3 - 1866 CL9 (2x4Go)

GPU: ASUS Geforce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC

CPU cooling: Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Edition

System HDD: WD 500Go 10000 RPM SATA III WD velociraptor WD5000HHTZ

box: CoolerMaster Force 500


That title gave me cancer. Vortex's build seems the best, if you have an ssd and only top out at $801. You seeem pretty much good to go.

I grammared the post.

Vortex88's build is a really good build for $800


Took Vortex's build, found a less expensive case and cooler, and put an 8350 in it. Couldn't ask for much more.

I can and will ask for a better PSU. Drop the aftermarket cooler and get a Rosewill Capstone 550 or XFX Core 550.

Yes, I just saw that thte 550w XFX was the same price, Stupid me. I know the Corsiar CX series is pure crap.



XFX Pro series, Lepa, Antec HCG, NZXT HALE, Corsair TX and above, Rosewill HIVE or Capstone... there are many options. Also, stay away from Thermaltake. My old TR2 RX 750w would give up at about 600w.

Here's a good reference site http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/page/power

This is what I would get http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Killerfrenzy96/saved/1RRS. Managed to get a 7970 in there. Game's only use 4 core's so 6 is anough. You can invest in a CPU cooler later on and maybe an SSD. PSU is a 650w Gold+ SeaSonic you should be fine. I went over budget $15 but your getting a 7970.

This is interesting thinking of just starting off here salvaging a hdd/os, ram & case then going with this for myself over my previous ideas (and assistance) yet I think I'd feel better with the other setup in the long run hmm.
