What to Use in My Christmas Computer Update.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Everybody Christmas is coming up and i always upgrade my computer. But this year i only need a few thing but i could not decide what to use. 

 

I am mainly looking to spend around $500 and since i already have MOSTLY everything here are the things i need.

Graphics Card

NEW Monitor

Peripherals: Mouse & Keyboard.

 

Now my main issue is what graphics card to get. I was looking at a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Windforce and i really liked it.

for my monitor i had no idea what to choose. I was really looking for a 20" - 23" monitor that was from ASUS or ACER. 

For peripherals i really dont need the highest grade Gaming keyboard and mouse, i just needed something that was comfortable to use and was good looking.

 

So My Current System is:

 

CPU: Intel Core i5 3550 3.3 GHz

GPU: NONE

Motherboard: ASRock B75 Pro 3

RAM: 16 GB of Corsair Vengence

PSU: Rosewill 600W Performance Series

Case: Sentey Arvina Extreme Division

Keyboard: Logitech(thats all i know i dont know what model)

Mouse: HP (Its old but it gets stuff done.)

 

So if you guys could help me pick some parts for my upgrade that would be great!

I can help you for the GPU:.

There are a lot of options, but i think that the beasts are:

-GTX 770 2GB SC;

-R9 280X Sapphire Toxic Edition.

 

They're really good and pretty cheap :)

For the monitor you could also look at Dell, they have a nice and good priced FullHD 24inch monitor (P2414H I believe) and TFTCentral has an excellent review on it.

For the GPU indeed, the 770 or 7970/280x are good options. I would try to get a 7970 if they are comparably priced, the 280x only gives never settle silver (vs gold) and the 770 only has 2GB. Especially sinds AMD now has Battlefield 4 and Thief in the bundle. As for the keyboard, you could try to squeeze a cheap mechanical one in (like the Steelseriew 6Gv2). 

 

Can you possibly put a link in your post?

If you put it in google you will find it too.

I'd get a 770/7970 with that money, then get a VA panel with a mech keyboard and a G400/Deathadder 2013

that won't work out by a long shot!

Is the system just for gaming?

If you're shopping during Christmas, I'd recommend planning/asking later. Parts and prices change frequently.
