Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,  :D 

 

I'm in need for a new PC. I've got about $1250,-  to spend.

 

Things that should not be included in the build:

 

- Monitor

- Keyboard

- Mouse

- Headset

- Mechanical Hard Drive

- Windows

- Case

 

Preferences:

 

- a Intel CPU

- a nVidia GPU

- a Liquid CPU cooler

- 16GB RAM (if it's possible, otherwise 8 gigs)

- 512GB SSD (again, if it's possible, otherwise 256 gigs)

 

This PC is going to be used mostly for gaming, think about Skyrim, Gmod, Minecraft, GTA (IV and V).

 

Thanks in advance,

Canada uses Dollars, but not the US Dollar.

Question

You could go with a cheaper cooler such as the Coolermaster hyper evo 212. 

 

You can get faster Ram for the same sort of price i.e Kingston HyperX fury 1866MHz. You will be fine with 8GB though if you are just gaming.

 

The EVGA Supernova NEX is a pretty average psu. If you don't plan on SLI then go with a 500W or so psu. Something like the Rosewill Capstone, Seasonic G and XFX XTR are all very good. If you plan on SLI then look at the EVGA Supernova G2 750W model instead.

About the faster RAM... the CPU supports RAM speeds up to 1600Mhz, so buying higher clocked RAM isn't going to give me any extra performance...

 

Could you suggest me a motherboard that's around a 100 bucks?

 

Thanks in advance

Question

The i5 4690K supports Ram up to 2666+ MHz. I know it says 1600MHz on Intels website, but you can run faster Ram than that.

 

The Gigabyte Z97 SLI is $108.99 after rebate on Newegg
