Building a Gaming PC Help? I am not an inexperienced gamer, but I have never actually BUILT my own rig before. Here's what I need: A good tower with enough space for upgrades, 8GB DDR3 (gonna get 16 later, so need enough space in tower), at least a GTX 570-580 (again, gonna upgrade to 680 later), 750GB to 1TB of hard drive space, and whatever else I need to build a complete PC. Liquid cooling with an overclocker would be nice, but i'm trying to stay around $1300-$1500 if possible. I need a monitor, preferably 2ms, but this is not necessary. I already have a keyboard and mouse picked out. Please put a list of links for all of the items (newegg preferred). Thanks! Forgot to add! I need a 7200 rpm drive for my games. Thanks!

Building a gaming PC? 1. I am planning on building a PC, but I don't know where to start. Would someone recommend a good guide to building a gaming PC. 2. I was thinking of buying an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 3,2 GHz for about 1500 $. While I am planning to build a very powerful gaming PC, is that just overkill and I should go with the 2.66 GHz Core 2 Extreme? 3. I am not sure what graphics card to buy. I was looking at the ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB. Is that too much. Should I rather buy an Nvidia GeForce 9800 or 8800? Thank you very much. I am planning to play Crysis, Far Cry 2, BioShock, Dead Space and maybe some NFS. Money is not a problem. I was looking into 24" monitors.

Need Help Building Gaming PC.? Alright so I know very little about computer but I did research and I found these specs. Im looking for a PC that will be able to run mostly low quality games but at the same time it will be able to run graphics heavy games on at LEAST medium settings. I have a 1680x1050 monitor, if that matters.

$900 Gaming Computer? Hey, i have a $950 budget for my gaming computer (that includes tax/shipping if its not from Microcenter since i live very close to one). I was wondering if any of you knew any pre-built gaming computers in that budget that were decent for gaming? (Play games like Battlefield 3, SWTOR, GTA V,Skyrim, etc) It does not have to be on high/ultra settings. I'd just like to play them on whatever settings with little to no lag and good fps. I built what i think was a great computer for my budget at Cyberpower.com. It had the AMD 7770,8gb ram, a quad core processor and 800 watts. I don't know much about gaming computers but i always heard those are important for it, and it seemed good for the price since it said i could play quite a few games on Ultra and Battlefield 3 on high. The problem is however is that i have heard some pretty bad reviews from that site, and the ibuypower site also and it makes me worried to do business with them. I should mention that building the computer myself is out of the question, however, Microcenter builds computers for $200, what would be a good build, includeing that fee, that would put me at $950? Thanks :)

1st Gaming PC Build Help? I was thinking AMD but it sounds like Intel would be a better but so here is what I came up with. I want to know if it is good and if everything is compatible. Case: Sentey Arvina Extreme Division Mobo: BIOSTAR TZ77B Intel 7 Series Motherboard Video card: Asus Gefore GT 640 2GB Power supply: 750 Watt Optical drive: Samsung 24x DVD burner Hard drive: Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Processor: Intel I5 3470 quad core Sound Card: Don't think I need one to run a gaming headset. I have $800 to spend and this puts me at $757 so I don't really have much room to add more expensive parts to make it better. I plan to run Call of Duty, SimsCity, Sims 3, Sims 2, and maybe WoW and Skyrim. Memory: 8GB(2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Modular vs non modular power supply? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3232816&CatId=7387 better video card?

Here is what I am buying Asus Radeon HD 7770 2GB video card, 8GB Corsair Vengeance memory, Intel I7 3820 quad core processor, BitFenix Shinobi mid tower case, BIOSTAR TZ77B Intel 7 Series Motherboard, 750 watt power supply, Samsung 24x DVD burner, Sabrent internal floppy drive and card reader, Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM hard drive, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. Puts me about $130 over budget but I think that it is worth it and is a good build well better build.

Build myself a gaming PC OR Buy HP 390t with $500 discount? Okay, I need help with deciding whether or not I should build a gaming PC or just buy it from HP with good $500 discount. Let me list different parts of my build vs HP build so all you people can help me on which one is better. My build: CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme 980x, 3.33GHz (Six Core) 12000K CPU Fan: Intel Socket 1366 CPU fan Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Extreme X58, DDR3, SLI & Cross Fire,SATA3, GB LAN, USB 3.0,iEEE RAM: 12GB (3x4GB) PC3 10600 DDR3 1333 Triple Channel Graphic Card: ATI Radeon HD 5970 2GB PCI Express 16x dual head DVI, HDMI Hard Drive: 1000.0GB Western Digital Green SATA2 UDMA 300 32m cache DVD: LG 22x DVD Recorder Dual Layer +R/RW -R/RW Case: Antec Twelve Hundred Black Case, Full Tower, Side Window, front USB & iEEE Power Supply: Antec TruePower Quattro 1000w Extra Quiet ATX Power Supply SLI & X-fire ready This come out about $3400 with shipping fees and taxes after I use price check with Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com HP build: CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme 980x, 3.33GHz (Six Core) 12000K CPU Fan: Intel Socket 1366 CPU fan Motherboard: Pegatron IPMTB-TK http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01901210&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us%E2%8C%A9=en&product=4#N825 RAM: 24GB DDR3-1066MHz SDRAM [6 DIMMs] Graphic Card: 1.8GB NVIDIA Geforce GTX 260 [2 DVI, HDMI and VGA adapters] Hard Drive: FREE UPGRADE! 1.5TB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive from 1TB DVD: Blu-ray player & Lightscribe SuperMulti DVD burner Network card: Wireless-N LAN card Media Card: 15-in-1 memory card reader, 1 USB, 1394, audio Case: HP case with dimension of 16.85"(L) x 7.05"(W) x 15.79"(H) Power Supply: 460 watts OP: Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64-bit This comes out around $3100 after taxes (free shipping). $2,902.99 before taxes (initial price $3,402.99 before $500 discount) As you can see HP build is cheaper than mine even though I have concerns in a few areas. First of all, their Power Supply is only at 460 watts so if I want to upgrade something in future, it will cost me more with building a new Power Supply. I don't know much about their motherboard so if someone knows about it, please help me explain. Another thing about is I can't get much information about their 1.8GB NVIDIA Geforce GTX 260. I know you can only buy 896 MB GTX 260 outside. I talked with HP live chat agent and he said 1.8GB GTX 260 is only made exclusively for HP 390t and you can't buy it outside. Well, beside these few points, I like HP build. I think my build has better motherboard, Graphic card, and power supply. It's more expensive. HP build has better RAM, more hard drive, better media card readers, and cheaper than my build. So which one should I go with? Thanks in advance for help.

Build me a Gaming Desktop/PC? A rather big ask i know, but I'm new to "building" computers and sick of buying computers that are simply crap. I'm willing to spend anywhere up too $3,000 Australian dollars for a computer that is specialized for 'extreme' gaming. Links to sites that allow you to build your own computer would be okay, but it would mean a lot to me if you could post an actual build. Cheers!!

I'm using a i7 980x cpu, Asus rampage 3 extreme motherboard and a 4gig Radeon 5970 graphics.

Please look at my custom gaming PC build, need feedback? I've looked at two different builds for a gaming PC's that were updated for October 2011. One was a little under what I wanted to pay and the other was a little over (My budget is around 1500.) So I decided to mix the two and hope there's no compatibility issues. PLEASE POINT OUT ANY ISSUES! Also, if you think there's better choices out now for the parts, please leave a post below. Here it is: Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme B3 RoG Edition CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K (Will my GPU get bottlenecked if I get an i5 instead?) CPU Cooler: Corsair CWCH80 Hydro H80 CPU Liquid Cooler (Where would I go about overclocking my CPU to get use out of this?)

Is there anything that I might be spending too much money on and not need? Remember, it's a gaming computer and I want it to last at least a year without having to swap out parts. Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Some of it may see overkill but bear with me, mostly I just want to know if its all compatible.

PC gaming build - Need some more help please. - GPU, Motherboard,? Hi guys, just want to start off with saying thanks for all the answers that people have given to my questions. They have been really informative and helped me alot in putting together my Custom rig. I'm so close to having it completely finished and all I will need to do is buy it, but I have a couple more questions. So down to business. My questions are: GPU: I've been watching Linus tech tips on Youtube, and one of the video's he had a gaming rig (dream machine it was called) that had two 7950s in cross fire, saying that these two though less powered then the GTX 680 and HD 7970 single cards will out perform these top of the line single cards in cross fire. Is there an equivalent Nvidia SLI set I could use. I don't Mind AMD GPUs because of the price, but prefer Nvidia Also should I stick with the two 7950s in Xfire ( or equivalent nvidia GPUs in SLI) or just scrap the two GPUs and just go for a single gtx 680?. Second Question; Motherboards In the specs below, I've gone for a ROG Maximus extreme V Gene - It can run SLI or Xfire and is made for the new IVY bridge. Is there another mother board which would be better..I've read some stuff about the Sniper G1? I think but I'm not sure which is better. One description said that the different between the Sniper and ROG is one is for online gaming and the other is for OC gaming and high end graphics?. I'm basically going to be playing games in this rig and OCing it but I still don't know which is better..(Stuff like online SC2, Diablo 3, Skyrim, Metro..and WOW and BF3) Third question: I've added the spec for the rig I've put together myself below. My budget is £1500 or $2310 if your in the US, I really want to make this a Kick ass gaming PC (it's my first obviously) In that price I want to include the OS as well. Basically is there anything that you would maybe swap out to improve the rig or change anything for something that's better or more efficient? Case - Coolermaster HAF X Full tower CPU - i5 3750K IVY bridge (I'm going to OC this to 4Ghz) Mother board - Asus ROG Maximus extreme V Gene Z77 (can I OC this?) RAM - 12GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz CPU Cooler - H100 corsair liquid cooling GPU - x2 HD 7950s in Cross fire (Reference cards - not after market ones) HDD1# - 60GB Intel SSD HDD2# - 2TB Seagate Barracuda Optical drive - LiteOn iHAS124 24x DVD±RW PSU - OCZ ZX Series 850W 80+ GOLD PSU Fully Modular PSU OS - Windows 7 64bit home premium Also could someone please suggest something that explains Motherboard OC and GPU over clocking because I was under the impression I would only have to do the CPU and not the rest of the components as well Look forward to hearing from you, Thanks for your help and time
Need help- custom build gaming pc? Sup guys so heres my first Attempt at building a custom gaming pc. My only questions are- 1. Will these parts " fit/work" with each other once its built? -2. Is there a better case i should get? -3. The graphics card i am getting is a evga nvidia gtx 560 ti 2gb and it requires PCIe 2.0 x16 so should i get another motherboard that only has one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot instead of Two 2.0 x16? -4. I dont over clock nor do i wish to, so would these parts be good for me? I am only planning on playing arma 2 ( at least on high- ultra settings with decent fps) will i get this performance with these specs? - my " soon to be custom gaming pc specs- ///// Graphics card- EVGA geforce nvidia gtx 560 TI 2gb //// Cpu- intel core i5 3570k 3.4 ghz LGA 1155 processor ///// Case- Corsair obsidian series 550d mid-tower atx computer case ( will i be fine with a mid tower or should i go for a full tower?)///// Power supply- Cooler master Extreme power 700 watts power supply//// Motherboard- gigabyte ga-z77x -d3h LGA 1155 z77 ATX motherboard ( like i said this motherboard has two PCIe 2.0 x16 should i just get a motherboard that has only one PCIe 2.0 x16? Btw the graphics card i am going to use EVGA geforce nvidia gtx 560 ti 2gb says it is a dual slot card that requires PCIe 2.0 x16, so i assume i only need a mother board with one PCIe 2.0 x16 right? I am a noob at this sorry) ///// Ram sticks- kingston hyperx DDR3 -1600 ( pc3- 12800) CL9 dual channel desktop memory kit ////// Hard drive ////// western digital Caviar black 1TB 7200 RPM sata 3.0 GB/ s 3.5" Internal hard drive- So is this a good build?

Some questions on my first build on a Gaming pc? I just bought all the parts I need to build my first pc. Now I know I'm a little late to this (building a pc and buying the new hardware), there are i'7's and i5's that are leading the way and I decided to buy the discontinued lga 775 motherboard and cpu. Heres a list of what I have so far. Case: Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP Motherboard: Asus Extreme Rampage X48 DDR3 Cpu: Intel core 2 quad Q9550 2.83 Ghz (EO) Stepping 1333 fsb Memory: Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB (2 x 2GB) 1600 MHZ PDC34G1600ELK Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 640 GB Cpu Cooler: Zalman CNPS 9500 A Power Supply: Corsair TX 750 Watt Cd/dvd Drive: Lite on DVD Drive Video Card: Asus Dark knight 4870 1gb OS: windows 7 professional 64 bit Now I know I could've bought something better (like the new i7 with x58 motherboard) and I'm an idiot not for buying the new stuff, but I've been stuck with a crappy dell xps 410 with a old core 2 duo and a 32 bit vista. There are some things that are running through my head and I was hoping someone could answer this. 1. I know that the extreme rampage is really picky when it comes to memory, as you can see from the memory I chose, I was wondering if that memory, being at 1600 mhz already, is compatible with a cpu with only 1333 fsb. (Im planning to overclock it,so that way it can remain stable but I'm wondering if the computer will boot into the bios safely without having any problems) 2. I know there arent any drivers in the asus website for windows 7 but the generic drivers can be found on a disc or website correct? 3. For overclocking, Should I download the latest drivers for the motherboard first? or should I do that after I overclock. 4. What will I expect after everything is put in? There are other questions but I can't think of it atm. I know I'm a noob, I admit it but I've always wanted to build a pc with those components and I haven't gotten the chance to buy it when they first came out. Hopefully someone can answer my questions and help me in the later future. Thank you! Hey Josh, thanks for replying, um I want it overclocked to like 3.5 ghz, I know I need to raise the fsb from 333 to like 402 or something, but does that mean I have to leave everything on Auto or manually change everything else?
is iBuypower Gamer Extreme 924i Gaming PC - Intel Core i7 920, 6GB DDR3, 500GB, DVDRW, 9400GT 1GB, 580W, good? An employee at compusa suggested this and 2 other gaming computers. The problem is though is the graphics card good? I know its not the best, but with all the other components (including core i7) would this be able to run for example games like Crysis and Gears of war? here's the link http://www.compusa.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4508970&csid=ITD&recordsPerPage=10&body=REVIEWS#tabs The employee said it was pretty powerful, but some reviews on the website say the graphics card isn't too good so they either got a new one or a better powersupply Is this good for gaming? If not, could you give some ideas for a good gaming computer that is around the same price? Thanks also, I was thinking about building my own, but this one is around that same price as if i were to build mine.

Just a for fun kind of question: given a budget of around $4000, how would you build your Super-Gaming-PC? I think the question is pretty straight forward. Just use your imagination, but please base them on facts :D My ideal super-gaming-PC would be: -Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 3.2GHz -Intel X48 Mainboard/Motherboard chipset -4GB DDR3 RAM -Dual GeForce 8800 Ultra GPUs, each with 1GB DDR3 VRAM -Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit (for the DirectX 10 compatibility)
Help me finish my PC gaming build? Ok so first off, I don't want to spend that much money. My use of the computer will be for gaming on MAX graphics and normal internet use. I don't want a computer built for super excessive speeds and power that I don't really need. In case I need to upgrade or downgrade, please let me know. Thanks. Here are the parts I've chosen so far: Case- RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156078 Motherboard-ASUS M4A89GTD PRO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131631 (I'm iffy about this because I'm not sure if I'll really need something like this. Correct me if I'm wrong) OR GIGABYTE GA-790XTA http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128416R CPU- AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727 Video Card- MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127565 RAM- suggestions? Power Supply- suggestions? Cooler- suggestions? Hard Drive- suggestions? I prefer SSD. Optical drives- I already have 2 from my other computer that I will simply switch from. Oh and for my monitor, I'm buying an ASUS ML238H 23-Inch.
Building gaming PC.... please help? I want to build a gaming pc, i'm not a HUGE gamer, but i would like to run the sims 3 maxed out(which im sure wont be a problem) as well as the new star wars game, The Old Republic, when it's released. I dont plan on playing many 1st person shooters online except maybe Team Fortress 2 which i would like to play at a high resolution with very very little lag. I already have a SAMSUNG 2494HM Glossy Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor. So here's what i'm thinking about........... Case: Thermaltake Element-T Mid-Tower Case CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-930 2.80 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1366 Venom Boost Fast And Efficient Factory Overclocking: Pro OC Performance Overclock 10% or more Cooling Fan: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) Motherboard: * Asus P6T SE Intel X58 Chipset CrossFireX Mainboard Triple-Channel DDR3/1600 SATA RAID w/ eSATA,GbLAN,USB2.0,IEEE1394a,&7.1Audio Memory: 6GB (2GBx3) DDR3/1600MHz Triple Channel Memory Module (A-Data Gaming Series with Heat Spreader) Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Card Power Supply Upgrade: 700 Watts Power Supplies (XtremeGear SLI/CrossFireX Ready Power Supply) Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® 7 Professional (64-bit Edition) Now this appears to be running about $1200 Also.... I know very little about motherboards and RAM, my monitor has HDMI but i'm not sure if the motherboard I selected has it. Is there a huge difference in running my monitor DVI and HDMI?? Also the RAM i'm getting says 1600Mhz but i thought RAM ran at 667Mhz standard, do i have to change some type of setting or will it run at 1600Mhz automatically or am i an idiot? I would appreciate any help or advice. Is my video card good? Thank you for any feedback
