PostSubject: Should I get the PC?   Thu Dec 20, 2012 8:00 pm

I'm going PC hunting, and I don't know much about computers So I'm asking for help. Price isn't much of a problem, but I don't want to over do it. I might get this PC VVV

Intel Core i5 3470 3.2GHZ (3.2GHz, 1155, Quad Core 4 Threads, 6M Cache, Integrated Graphics CPU)
ASUS P8H77-V Motherboard
8 GB RAM
Hitachi 1TB SATA HDD
Dual Layer DVD Burner
ASUS ATI HD6570 Graphics Card (PCI-E 2.1 1GB 128-bit GDDR3, 650/1800 MHz, DVI, HDMI, D-Sub, DX11)
Hytec 500W Power Supply
Internal Fan
Internal Card Reader
Wireless PCI Adapter
Black Gaming Case
Keyboard & Mouse
Logitech Speakers with Subwoofer
Logitech C120 1.3Mp Webcam
Headset
Colour Multifunction Centre - Print, Copy, Scan, Fax
24" LCD Widescreen Monitor
UPS/Power Filter
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 - Word, Excel, Powerpoint & One note
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Escan 3 Year Virus Protection Included

Any good? I'm looking for a gaming one. Not serious gaming, just somehing that could get me 150+ FPS on Minecraft, or at least run Counter strike, and trouble in terrorist town withou lag. So is this good enough for what I'm looking for?

You should get a mobo with a Z77 chipset if you plan to overclock

I just purchased a PC for the holidays to build myself, I went WAY overkill with the RAM but here is the list of parts I bought.

EVGA 02G-P4-2680-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770K

AZZA Genesis 9000 CSAZ-9000W White 0.8mm SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case <-- I really like this case, its the same as the cyberpowerPC.com 's Black Pearl Computer. + It supports water cooling, wich is good since this computer is going to be reallly loud already since it has 5 fans.

CORSAIR XMS 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX32GX3M4A1333C9

Western Digital Red WD20EFRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - OEM

GIGABYTE GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Thermaltake Black Widow W0319RU 850W ATX 12V v2.3, EPS 12V v2.91 CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM - OEM

Rosewill RTK-090 90 Piece Professional Computer Tool Kit

Granted I went a bit overboard with RAM, I dont see how I will need 32 GBs in the near future, but Hey, it means this PC will last longer and I dont need to buy more ram later. Plus it only add about 70 bucks to the total cost.

PS. I think you are going to need a bigger power supply, Although I'm not quite sure what alot of your things will draw. But you might want to invest in a 800w or greater suply just in case.

Dont worry about shoking yourself, worry about shocking the motherboard or the memory cards, Because if you so much as have a little static on your hands when you hold them, thats 400 dollars down the drain, ruined because of carlessness. Now, those were the older peices, the new ones might be better when it comes to static electricity. But Im still not taking any chances.

The more RAM the better, Honestly, I would fill as much of your excess budget with RAM as possible. I have 32GB of RAM but anything over 12GBs is good.

OH I already play 120 FPS on minecraft, but Im hoping to get more than 20 FPS on games like Planetside 2 on my new setup.

Also, my Computer Case just came in.............. IT IS THE BIGGEST COMPUTER CASE I THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN! Im not sure if thats a good or bad thing XD this thing is a good 2 feet tall. But at least I will have NO heat problems.
