New pc

Hello, I live in Canada eh and am planning to build A 500-600 dollar build for Mainly gaming and a little bit of editing. I would put windows 7 on it and that would not be included in the price. Anyways if someone could recommend a build that would be amazing!

Thanks, Brenden

Brenden? I'm Brennan. People always get my name wrong, and call me Brenden. I blame people like you.

However, I will post a rig in a moment; I'm going to practice the Glazunov concerto, first.

I'm sorry Brennan, but if you can make a build that would be awesome!

This is what I'd look at:

* CPU the best you can get at this price.

* Mobo supports front USB 3.0 ports (I have a case that supports this option below).

* RAM has LOW PROFILE heat spreaders and runs at stock voltage of 1.5v.

* GPU is one of the better ones in this price range (trades blows with 7850 at stock settings).

* Case has 2 x front USB 3.0 ports and has good build quality.

* PSU supports the GTX 660 or 7850. If you want more wiggle room I would spend a bit more and get a 500-550w quality PSU from Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, PCP&C, and XFX.

if I were to eventually upgrade the video card would something like this be okay?

The problem with that build is that you have an "unlocked" CPU on a mobo that doesn't support OC'ing, so that wouldn't make sense. My build above allows you more options and gives you a pretty good build for gaming also. Obviously we can tweak it to meet your expectations, but it's up to you.

I apologize I meant to put a normal 3570 but the problem is I don't want to be using a lot of power an with the build that I put together saves 100 watts, Thanks for replying


Okay I have tweaked the build for you, since your not going to be OC'ing the CPU:

* Changed the CPU (it has no integrated GPU, so it'll consume less power)

* Kept your Mobo, RAM, & Case

* Upgraded the GPU, so you have more gaming performance.

* Changed the PSU to a better one for similar $.

I would at least get an H77 motherboard, for some modern features, such as CF/SLI and USB 3.0.

For this build, which H77 board would you recommend?

Smething like this?

Yeah that will work! The Corsair CX 430w or even the CX 500w, but the 600w looks priced pretty good right now.

Okay! Thank you Lunyone and brennan for your time!
