New gaming rig in Lebanon
Hello everyone,
I am planning on building a new rig based on HR article for mainstream gaming PC.
I currently live in Lebanon, and the only option I have for a decent computer hardware shop is this :http://www.pcandparts.com/price.htm
So I am kinda restricted to buying all my parts from here,My budget is around 1100$(USD),give or take.
I already have an idea of what I need to get ,but any suggestion ,would much appreciated as this is my first try on building my own PC Big Grin
These are the parts that I need :
1-Motherboard (I choose Asus P8P67 (REV.3.0) ATX) 183 $
2-CPU (i5-2400 ) $197 /w stock cooler
3-Ram (2*4 GB Kingston DDR3-1333 ram) 54$
4-GPU (still not decided ,I am thinking something between the lines of a GTX 560 Ti,6950,...)
5-case (also still not for sure, ThermalTake Armor A90 case) 98$
6-Monitor (totally lost here Huh)
7-PSU (most probably a ThermalTake ToughPower XT 775) 180 $ (I know its an overkill,but there store is out of stock of the 675 and 575 models ,XFX is still another option XFX P1-750S-NLB9 750W PSU for 125 $)
8-HDD (Samsung 500 GB 7200 RPM) 79 $

Total:792$ (with around 350 $ left for the GPU and monitor)
Any suggestion would be helpful
Thanks !!

RE: New gaming rig in Lebanon
From what I could see, you are using a single memory stick and thus not taking advantage of dual-channel which is supposed to provide better performance.

Quote:3-Ram (1*4 GB Kingston DDR3-1333 ram) 27$

Won't comment on the rest as other folks here know much more than me Tongue

I think if your getting that processor which if I'm not mistaken, can't be overclocked, you also won't need such an expensive motherboard.

Well I don't fully know how to gauge a motherboard on price/performane Tongue I just realized that you picked out a pretty high end/priced motherboard for a processor thats not even overclockable.

RE: New gaming rig in Lebanon
I'd say you could go down to "Asus P8P67 LE (REV.3.0) ATX (DDR3) (LGA1155) $152.00 b4-2" (not entirely sure of the differences with LE, non-LE) to save a little money but since those are your only options I would just choose between the those 2 Asus boards. You'll want to have the P67.

You could also consider an SSD if you have extra money.
