I need to build a PC for about $500 US Dollars. It will be used for gaming in general.

 

I don't need an OS, a monitor, a mouse, keyboard, etc.

 

My friend gave me this:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Tqtjgs

He said to make this, but replace the 860k with a 760k due to some incompatibilites. I also wanted to change the case to something that's in stock. Adding it all up, it came to about $515, including shipping and not including rebates.

 

I was just wondering if:

-The PSU can support everything safely

-If there is a better build for the same price

-If there is any incompatibilites

 

Any and all replies are appreciated. Thanks!

check that out. You want to overclock the crap out of that intel CPU.


Planning on trying StarCitizen (Highly recommended)? STAR-NR5P-CJFR is my referal link

Going with Intel will be the better choice I'll start working on a build....

-$499.80- Aren't you a ninja.....

 

I'll let the thread sit for a bit and wait for a general consensus on what to do.

Never overclocked before. I just don't want to have any issues with heat.

 

It seems like most people are in the same general area with builds, but I'll hold patient.

BAM! http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Tb2tRB

 

Vishera Processors are sick. I'm a huge fan of my 8350. You won't need a processor upgrade for a while, plus it is overclockable.

The FX-6300 is indeed sick.

 

This looks to be the best build so far, but I'm just worried that the rebates won't go though. It's not the end of the world if they don't, but still.

 

How easy is it to get rebates through?

I'm not too sure to be entirely honest. I never have really bought with rebates. I'm sure it'll work out though. It is a bit of work, but you basically send them proof of purchase and they'll send you back some money. (I think.)

That's not true. AMD processors are very good and reliable. I'd like to see some evidence that an i3 can beat a Vishera processor.
