My Pc Parts

Hey guy just want someone's perspective on my new pc :). This is very much enspired from YouTube videos.

This is my Build...

Thanks :D

You are spending way to much to be using a pentium 

Your current list  is in no way cost effective: that is 10 times faster for the same price

if u want to do online gaming, i would go with an amd fx 6350 ( and a compatible mobo) and go with some corsair 1600 ram instead of 1866 because you have a dedicated gpu, therefor theres no need for very fast ram

The 8320 is cheaper than the 6350 right now


yeah i know... i do intend on upgrading when i get the money... do you recommend anything? :) the only reason i chose the pentium is cos i know it will work with my pc and i was on a budget :L

This is WAY better cheap intel is no where near as good as cheap AMD

im just sain guys im a noob at building pc's and this ids my first and just want to make sure all these parts will work together??? thanks

I agree, that build is pretty overpriced for such an old processor.  You could go with an AMD setup if you want something cheaper, but it's up to you.  AMD will have great performance for cheaper, and Intel will give you better reliability and stability with no performance loss for a much higher price.  I use a Pentium e5200 dual core from 4 years ago, and soon I'll be switching to an AMD FX-4350.

If you want to try AMD, check out this CPU (you can find whatever motherboard that has the socket for this CPU):

A little cheaper, with much better performance, by far.

It's got integrated graphics, but you have a GPU in your list so that'll overpower the integrated graphics in the CPU.

Also, if you don't mind spending another 9 bucks, you could get Arctic Silver thermal paste to keep your CPU a little cooler here:

thanks for the advice i have decided that im gunna stick with the cheap processor and upgrade early next year...and can someone who is smart with building pc's confirm that when all these parts are together it will work because im a noob lol :L

Go AMD and get a HD7870 or Gtx 760 for your graphics card. The Gtx 660 is not a very good card and both of the other cards i listed are better, at around the same price :)

i really, really dont reccommend going with that cpu for gaming, because it will botleneck the rest of your pc, but is is up to you

ok thanks what do you recommend instead (for around the same price) ???

Changed some stuff up.  I sincerely hope you read this post and learn!

Your build:

My build for you:

It appears you REALLY like Intel.  So Intel it is.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor.  This is much, much stronger than the Pentium you chose.  It has 4 cores which will be very helptul, especially in future games.  The i5 is a great CPU for gaming.

MOBO: ASRock Z75 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard.  This board has a better chipset and better cooling.  It's also a full size motherboard so you can have slightly better expandability.  With some H61 motherboards, you may need to perform a BIOS update, and that requires a older CPU which you may have to purchase.

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory.  The memory you chose was just plain overpriced.  Having higher clocked memory does not help your gameplay framerates when you have a dedicated graphics card.  G.Skill is a reputable brand as well.

HDD: Western Digital RE3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive.  It's cheap, and an RE3 drive at this price is really good.

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card.  The price to performance ratio of these are great.  Sapphire has a great Dual-X cooler on this card, which will often cause this card to run under 60c.  It's faster than a GTX 660 as well.

Case: NZXT Source 210 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case.  This case is a great budget case.  It's clean, simple, and cheap.  Sure, you can always go with a more expensive, "blingier" case, but you'd never use the computer as you spent so much on a fancy lookin case that you cheaped out on what really matters, which is the hardware that the computer runs on.

PSU: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply.  This is a pretty good power supply for  the money.  I try to stay away from Corsair's CX line as they're kind of cheap on quality.

I hope this helped you.  My build is also cheaper than yours, both up front and after discounts.

did you allready check Logans $650 build movie? its a very decent gaming setup he put together there, i would only change the motherboard for an Asus M5A97 R2.0 but for the rest its decent. you only need to add an OS and your good to go. By the way i realy Love that NZXT Phantom 410 RED case you selected orginaly.. ☺

yeah guys i have decided that im gunna stick to my current build and sometime in the new yeah upgrade my processor to an i5 or i7 (depending on how much i earn) 

thanks for all the advice :)
