Le new stash


That's a lot of mooney, you can get a great rig with that. Even better if you build it yourself.

What about this.

You could substitute with an Ivy Bridge i7 or indeed the newer Haswell chip might be better with a combo deal if you can find it. But this spec. overclocked would play EVERY game out there right now at >1080p at great FPS...

Assumes you have a monitor KB mouse combo of course

Kreah, are you super keen NOT to build it yourself ? It's easy and will save you money - also means if something goes wrong you can easily fix it yourself and will not have to go back to pay someone else to do it ?

The spec you have loaded is an odd one. The Motherboard and CPU combo are top spec - but overpowered for games. That CPU is more useful for Video editing, etc as it runs quad channel memory, 8 cores etc.

For Gaming an i5 or i7 is what you need. Will save you a ton of money.

The memory is ok, I like crucial or Corsair - they've always performed flawlessly for me in every machine I've built.

Intel Air cooling sucks - say no more.

The GPU is good. But I think BEST BANG for Buck right now is a pair of GTX 770's (MSI ones seem the best clocked for cash) that combo is KILLER and for the money <800 will outperform ANYTHING else -WAY WAY faster than a TITAN

Absolutely HAS to be a Samsung 840pro SSD - no comparison. (preferably 2 !)

WD Green HDD is their economy slow version. But to be honest I'd run 2 SSD's one 120gb one for windows and another 250g Plus one for games. then have your HDD's for file storage etc. - so it's less important.

DVD players are Meh, just makesure it plays Blurays.

If you have a little more cash to spend then I will Mod my build to get it up to my ultimate i7 rig build and see what you think.

Well building it yourself is most of the team much cheaper then buying a completely finished one.
Just saying.
