Build your own you lazy bugger! If not get a mate to. That way you'll know what you're getting and you'll also get moar for yuor moneyz.

Even the ones near $1000 won't be much good for gaming and are a ripoff

You could do a barebone system from mwave.com. Select the case, motherboard, processor, etc and have them assemble and test. I got tired of assembling from scratch after I built my first two systems and have been going back to them since. The case selection for their barebone systems isn't what it used to be, ugly Apevia cases is pretty much it for aluminum. For my last upgrade, I decided to keep my current Super Flower 201-S case and just did a motherboard bundle, had them put together an E8400+MSI P35 Platinum, yanked out my old board/cpu and tossed in the new one and a new psu. You may be able to just put all of the components you want into your cart and tell them to assemble the whole thing, probably for a higher cost than the standard barebone assembly charge of $20 or $30 or whatever. That should get you access to some of the better looking cases, like a PC-60A Plus II from Lian-Li.

I really like the ICH-based boards, no problems with AHCI and hot-swap and pretty good performance with a software raid5. Newegg has tons of good reviews for Gigabyte's GA-EP45-UD3R. That plus an E8400+, 4-8GB ram, maybe a Corsair HX520W PSU, and a GTX260 could be pretty decent and should be well under $1000 and allow you to add in an X-Fi sound card or whatever. I was specing something similar for work (onboard sound though) and that was about $1000 with 3 hard drives and an internal hot-swap enclosure.

Getting the good stuff like i7 and a high end graphics card is over 1g at the moment so I'd recommend getting a decent mobo and a i7 920 with a crappy graphics card to start you off,

I wouldn't build a new rig now with 775 (or buy one) as its on the way out, The 1336 CPU's will be cheaper and faster in no time and you would be left with an incompatible dinosaur.


Don't build an E8400 or Q6600 system unless you want to upgrade everything in a years time.

So once again , i7 920/Good Motherboard/Some cheap ass ram/****ty Graphics Card

Default Re: Which one of these would you pick?

Maybe you could get the prime components first.....

Mobo, CPU, RAM, GPU on the understanding you already have PSU, case, dvd-R.....If you dont already have those then i can only suggest waiting for prices to come down a little....


mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131346R

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145224

DVD-r - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136152

CASe - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129043

PSu - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139007

GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130433

total price $1304 approx

That was just a quick look on newegg im sure with a little searching you could get the price under a $1000 with cheaper components.

Ehhh...

Corsair Dominator memory is way over priced and pretty much useless. A $260 1000W PSU is total overkill. And Open Box motherboards aren't a good idea. You could knock probably $300 off of that without losing any performance.

Let me try.

EDIT:
mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128386 (Gigabyte X58 with SLI support)

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115202 (Core i7 920)

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227375 (6GB OCZ DDR3-1333)

DVD-r - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827151171 (Samsung 22x SATA)

CASe - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137 (CoolerMaster RC690)

PSu - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139009 (Corsair 850W)

GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143155 (BFG GTX 260 216)

Using a free shipping promo code on the case it comes out to $1025 shipped.

If you'd rather save a little more money you could get a Gigabyte P43 board, a Q9550 and 4Gb of DDR2 to knock off around $200.

I highly recommend overclocking with either system though, since that's where the CPUs really shine. A top of the line cooler would only cost you $40.

Thanks. Keep the suggestions coming. I will probably be needing the works as my old system probably doesn't have much swappable or worth swapping over thus I will probably just keep it in intact in xtra room for internet, pron storage, ect...

Edit: too many probably's, wtf you can tell I'm totally lost. Damn 4 years without following the new hardware and I feel like a newB.

Ye Captn, im not familiar with Newegg it was first time i used it, as im english and use scan computers mostly, but yes most of the components i picked are overkill...was just a quick example that a new I7 build could be had for around $1000 easily.

Your choices are far cheaper and more priced around what Lazer needs.
