Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! Im thinking of building a computer. I want it mostly for gaming. I live in Sweden so parts here are quite expensive, but my budget is 6000 crowns, thats about 900$. I was looking at one Pc I putted together:

FX-6300

Corsair 200R

Corsair CX500M

GIGABYTE 970A-G43

Nvidia GTX760

Seagate barracuda 1TB

Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 8GB

 

I would like some opinions about this build. Suggest some changes and I will look it up if its a good choice here in Sweden(price wise). Thank you!

 

 

P.S. Dont mind my english.

That budget build is fine. That costs about $650 in america though... Never count on conversions for price points. Is there a Swedish PC customizer?

What do you mean by Swedish PC customizer? (oh wait, is that question even for me?)

In the US, AU, and most of Europe, we use PCPartPicker, which allows you to select parts and put them into a virtual build, then it finds the lowest price for each component on the internet. Is there something like this in Sweden?

Probably not, cause there is just 2 major shops that sells computer components, as far as I know.

Screw it, I tried, and I cant read Swedish. Go for what you have, but see if you can find a cheap Radeon 7950. How much was the total cost of everything, and how much was the GPU? I can use math (guess it isn't useless  :D) to then find out how many crowns you can use for a GPU.

Everythin is 6000, the gpu costs 2200. 7950 is 2500. Damn it , I made a mistake in the 1st post, gpu is 680 not 760.

Thats about $320. Excellent deal on the 680 my friend  :D keep that. It will outperform the 7950, but the 7950 will outperform the 760.
