Help with Build
 
I need someone to help me configure a build with a budget of 1000-1500$, I need everything monitor, mouse, keyboard and all. I would prefer all the parts be from the same website. This pc will be used for gaming (bf3, WoW and such). I appreciate all the help I can get, this will be my first pc I will build, and I need all the help I can get.:blush:

I like the 1200$ one, but I would prefer a little better graphics card, but if that would push it over the price range with every item included then I will deal with that graphics card.

Re: Help with Build
 
I would also prefer on the 1200 build that the hard drive would be 1tb

Re: Help with Build

If I have this correct you want:
  • Better Graphics Card

  • Keyboard
  • Windows OS?
If theres anything else you'll need, please let me know.

Also are you looking at the AMD build or the Intel build?

Re: Help with Build
 
I am looking at the intel, and yes that is it. Yes to Os. Thank you.

Re: Help with Build
 
Ok it the price is going to come close.

Since you want the $1200 build plus extras it came out to be a bit more.

I kept the graphcs card the same due to that is a high quality graphics card. It should handle gaming just fine.

It looks good, now I just have to wait and see if my money comes in before the sale ends, how long do i have?

Masterchiefxx17 02-25-2012 05:22 PM

Re: Help with Build
 
Not sure. Maybe a month or two? Could be more depending on the item.

baddison44 02-25-2012 05:33 PM

Re: Help with Build
 
Ahh I'm getting it in a 5-7 days so I should be good. Now just comes with building it...lol

Ask for help along the way if you need it.

Masterchiefxx17 02-25-2012 08:22 PM

Re: Help with Build
 
Also will you be needing Speakers for the computer?

Re: Help with Build
 
For gaming purposes, you would get more benefit keeping the CPU at an i5-2500k and purchasing either a more powerful video card or a second monitor. Otherwise I think Masterchief's example is spot-on, like his aim with plasma grenades.

Re: Help with Build
 
I would also suggest the i 2500k and save $100.
If no OC'ing will be involved you can drop the aftermarket CPU cooler and save another $40.

Wouldn't two monitors instead of three be distracting since you are looking directly towards a bezel?

Re: Help with Build
 
I don't see any mention from the OP about using more than one monitor.

Not for Eyefinity, just to have a second monitor. Having a second monitor is an immense improvement for multitaskers like myself. I like to keep my hardware monitors, web browsers, voice chat programs, etc. open on the second. You keep your focus on the primary monitor, most likely a widescreen, then have a cheap 4:3 monitor off to the side.

I don't either! Needlessly pushing stuff the poster does not require!
