So I'm going to be building a new pc for my parents so yeah, The budget is around 800$. Here are the parts that I'm thinking about http://pcpartpicker.com/p/b8KpmG [Yeah, I know that I didn't include an OS, I have one already]
Any body have any better recommendations or is this about it?
Thanks for the help ~
Are your parents going to be gaming? Because otherwise the 270x is probably overkill and you could use that money to get a better processor or more ram.
Strangely enough my mom actually does enjoy skyrim and a few other games i figure the 270x should be able to max those and have a few mods.
Cheaper and higher clocked RAM.
R9 270. It's the same GPU as the 270X, but at a lower clock speed. OC it to the 270X's normal clock speeds and you should get exactly the same performance.
Overkill power supply. I've picked a semi modular one of much higher quality.
I agree you don't need the 750 watt power supply, the 270 is a great card, I own it myself and it runs Skyrim fine, and yea you can get cheaper, higher speed RAM.
Thanks guys. All of this has been taken into consideration and I will probably order the parts this week.
Thanks again :D
