So I was meant to make a gaming pc a while ago but was putting it off over and over again Now I'm determained to get it up and running. I'm going for a Blue/Black or Red/Black colour scheme, my budget is anything under $1450 Hopefully a little lower (AUS)
To start off with I'm live in Australia to all my parts will come from http://pccasegear.com/ - http://mwave.com.au/ , I wil be overclocking this machine and hope to play on 1080p so a solid 1080p monitor is a must!
Here is what I have so far!
CPU: AMD FX-8320 - $192.00 - I would love to know if it would be better getting a 8350 or even the i5 3570k, and how it handles with OC
MOBO: This is the part I'm stuck on the most, I don't know anything about AMD mobo's so I would love some input on what to buy. I was thinking getting the Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk CPU Cooler - $45 - This is manly for looks and it preforms well
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD7950 - $339 - I've heard this card is a beast and willl handle over clocking
Ram: G.Skill Ares F3-1866C9D-8GAB 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 - $89 - Just the normal kinda ram, hoping for black!
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB - $119 - I'm pretty positive about this choice
HDD: Western Digital WD Blue 500GB - $62 - This will be for games and general stuff
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider Plus 600W ST60F-P - $119 - Another part i'm ot 100% sure abou, I would really prefer a modular/semi modular PSU
Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 - $135 - Awesome case!
Monitor: ASUS VS229H-P 21.5in - $169 - I'm half sure I got the right monitor but advice on monitors would be awesome!
Total Cost: $1269 Without mobo and shippping.
I hope the community could help me out with this one! Any kind of help suggestions would be really great! p.s Just mention if I missed any parts I should have Cheers.
