    Default Help building a computer.

    Well my hard drive went and I need to make a new computer.

    I have no experience but I want to give it a shot; ive done SOME research and picked out some parts.

    I just want to double check that they'll all go good together and some suggestions if there are any better parts for the same price range.

    Graphic Card-

    Mother Board-

    With all this what else would I need/ what would you recommend.


    Btw I'm taking the Graphics card and power supply (650 Wat) from my old computer.

    I'm a bit lazy atm (spent 1h30 switching every part to another case), but get an i5 2500k, an asus p8z77v-lx and a 1tb wd 7200rpm 3.5" hdd (should go for about 120usd).

    The Radeon HD 5770 benchmarks extremely low. It's a little bit more but http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161396 this one passes a benchmark with nearly three times the score. Other than that the rest looks good enough.

    Well the Radeon Hd 5770 would be pulled from my old computer and upgraded later. I just want to know if anything on that list isnt compatible with each other and if there are upgrades for each part around the same price.

    Not acting like a disbelieve you or anything lol; but could other people other confirm?


    Would be a drag to buy all the parts and find out one of them doesn't work.

    Skepticism is understandable.

    It will work perfectly together. However a 300USD motherboard and an i7 is thrown away money in 90% of the cases.

    Gaming doesn't need multithreading, thus rendering an i7 pointless. An i5 will do a better job at gaming.
    300USD motherboard sort of speaks for itself. The motherboard I mentioned in my previous post will do its job as good as a 300USD one.
    You're better off with a 3.5" 7200RPM motherboard. It's not for a laptop thus there's no need for a small and slow HDD.

    This ^

    Personally, what I would probably go with (not saying you should or that I'm right or anything, just saying this is the setup I myself would go with)

    cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115073

    mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131821 (really good cooling system)

    memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231445

    HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

    That is no less powerful of a cpu and minor improvements in other places, and you save over $200 that you could spend on a video card like the one I mentioned; or just have $200 extra that you didn't spend.

    I know you didn't want my input anymore.. but I couldn't help it..

    (also if you aren't in the US, Puerta Rico, Canada or China then Newegg doesn't ship to you, but if you are in one of those countries I would highly recommend it. Otherwise just use the links as reference for the parts.)

    I'm in US so no Newegg.

    But I took in both of your input and switched to this.

    Cpu: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...161&CatId=6988

    Mobo: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...300&CatId=6976

    HDD: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...44346&csid=_61

    While keeping everything else the same. How do you think that would work. Also I never said anything about not wanting you're input I just wanted second opinions.
