Default Re: Please help good gaming pc

I like your build so far, but it seems like it goes against your goal of saving a lot of money. You could go with a much cheaper tower
Newegg.com - Xigmatek ASGARD II B/S CPC-T45UD-U01 Black / Silver 0.8 mm SECC / Aluminum and Aluminum Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Casea

cheaper processor
Newegg.com - Intel Core i3-530 Clarkdale 2.93GHz 4MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80616I3530

and an ssd is not a requirement

What is your ideal budget? You might be better off buying a cheap gamer pc and upgrading a few parts.

Default Re: Please help good gaming pc

thnx, ye i just started looking into parts so I'm doing a lot of editing and seeing better parts for my build,
ssd is requirement because i want the super fast speed, and maybe i will downgrade the cpu/mobo but not sure yet, i rather have a better cpu then a better gpu,
im not sure about the budget yet because I'm still learning how much this will cost me, i don't have a budget but i want it to be the best possible parts for what i need,
I'm doing more research now and ill come up with better ideas soon,

what do you mean buy buying a cheap gamer pc and upgrading a few parts?
I'm trying to build a cheap gamer pc, but with optimal parts in areas that i need.

I suggest if you want a quality build for <$1,000 go AMD, >$1,000 go Intel.
Here are some builds that have already been suggested to give you some ideas:
Intel Suggestions.
AMD Suggestion.

I keep these bookmarked and tweak according to budget for what people need.

Default Re: Please help good gaming pc

is it better to go with 4gb ram cas 6? or 8gb cas 9
is there any games that use more then 4gb ram?
and is the cas difference from 9 to 6 great difference?
(games like wow and sc2, diablo 3)

also will a better cpu make a huge difference in gaming? like from the and phenom to i3 to i5 to i7
will sc2 or see noticeable differences according to those cpus?

also for gpu, I'm guessing something like hd6900 series are really good cards? in range of 250$ for those games

I'm learning more

I'd go for the Corsair CAFA70 CPU Cooler, pretty much the same performance as the Thermaltake Frio, just less expensive. Also, you need thermal paste if you're applying an aftermarket cooler Tuniq TX-2 or Tuniq TX-4. Reviews say theres a 3-4c difference between them.

Everything else looks good to me. Make sure you look for combo deals before you order, might save a few bucks.

For $30-40 more you can get the HAF 922 instead of the 912. I use the 922 and love it. It has all of the same features as the 912, but offers better airflow IMO.

Plus the front intake fan glows red, if your into that kind of thing. It has an LED on/off switch next to the main power button to turn it on or off as you please.

Default Re: Please help good gaming pc

nah i like the 912 look more,
and with the cooler i dont like those flimsy clips to clip on the fan,

heres what i got final build, trying to see if i can shave off 100$ because that would be perfect, but looks like nowhere i would want a downgrade,
anyone can think of anything else i might need, or anything i left out?
