I was wandering if someone could help me piece together a gaming comp.?
Topic: Pro case samsung
June 17, 2019 / By Neas Question:
I was wanting to build(Or possible buy) a gaming comp with as minimal expense as possible with these requirements. Doesn't have to be extremely budget just I'm not looking for a fancy case or lights or anything.
i7(Or what evers best... I know the i7 is best but I don't know why)
And a good graphics card
I am wanting to be able to record minecraft no lag and be able to play on full settings.
I also am interested in playing mw2 no lag.. High settings and maybe record it.
I'm also wanting to be able to run future games no problem as I am looking to start a YouTube channel.
So could someone with more computer tech knowledge than I have piece togther a computer that meets those requirements? As in all the parts to the full build?
Dom - are all of those parts full replaceable?? Meaning could I upgrade them later/add more ram?

The i5-3570k can be overclocked to frequencies over 4ghz. You can upgrade to an i7-3770k for an extra $100, but the performance increase is not worth the price, as most people (if not all), will not be able to tell the difference. The parts in this computer are high-end and will remain high-end for about 2 years for the graphics card and 4 years for the CPU.

I would suggest that you not buy a XPS or an Alienware. You will pay at least 20% more than it's worth. If you really don't want to build it, velocitymicro, in my opinion is the best. Check their website: www.velocitymicro.com. I recommend that you build it yourself. You can build a decent machine for about 1300. The law of dimenishing returns applies to gaming systems; once your exceed the $2,000 mark, you spend more money and don't get much more performance--especially since anything under 2,000 will play ANY game for a long time. I would recommend the Core 2 Duo E8400. Right now, it's only 209.00 from newegg.com and any nvidia 8800 GT (512 mb of video mem). If you have a bit more money, go with the 8800 GTX. I wouldn't recommend quad cores because current games can't fully utilize quad core, AMD's quads perform slower with games than their dual cores and Intel's don't offer a good price/performance ratio (with the exception of the q6600). The fastest affordable harddive is the WD Raptor. You could get one as your master and a cheaper drive as slave for storage. As for the RAM, case, PSU and Motherboard, it's really up to you (although I would get a PSU with decent product ratings and a motherboard that is of a reputable company--e.g., ASUS and MSI--my dad has used MSI for all his machines and thinks they're the best for the $). But, RAM, you want high voltage, low latency and min of 2 GB.
It took me about 4 hours to build my first computer--and that includes tying wires, etc. But after it was finished, I enjoyed how distinctly mine and gained an understanding and appreciation for computers.
Assuming your budget is around $1000-$1300 you can build yourself a pretty decent PC.
Intel Core i5 3570k or 2500k. The reason you want to go with these processors is that the i7s have Hyper-Threading and games don't use them so you'll be just wasting money. Besides you can overclock the hell out of these (especially the 2500k)
MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCIe. Actually this varies due to what monitor you'll be playing. But this card is a beast and is the same as the GTX 670 with a lower memory bandwith(256-bit vs 192-bit), but you will be saving money ($100!) and it should be able to max out any game at 1080p (check geforce.com-performance tab for this card)
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155. This is a really great Mobo for the price.
SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W 80 PLUS GOLD. You don't want your PC to be out of fuel, and by my experience SeaSonic makes one of the best PSU.
Corsair H60. Enough with the air cooling. This should be enough for the CPU you want.
Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 128GB. This is where you want your OS to be
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM. This is where all your media and games are going.
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB or just lower it to 8GB, games don't require that much anyways.
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Case. Pick whatever you like, I don't care
Add a $10 DVD drive and you get a beauty at a price tag of $1230. Obviously you can change whatever you'd like in here, like throwing away that SSD and getting a better GPU, like GTX 670 FTW. Anyways, good luck and a word of advice: Don't use AMD GPUs. Yes they are cheap, but I've had multiple problems with their drivers

I haven't built a computer yet but I beleave I'm capable, if you want to hear these points then go ahead:
I heard i7 only has hyper-thread compared to i5 so if your program don't support then its pointless. If I were you, I would pick at least a quad core with a .1ghz higher than the recommended for my games(but I would go with at least 3.0ghz nowadays).
Before deciding for a GPU, you should always decide what monitor your going to be playing with because the resolution of the monitor is a critical deciding factor.
Picking the power supply at last is better imo because you have to factor how much each component needs and if you want more watts for a future upgrade.
The hard drive speed(RPM) I think it only affects load times. I haven't heard what else it affects but increase in FPS I doubt it.

Yes the parts dom recommended are upgradable and interchangable, the difference between i7 and i5 are the i7 has more hyper-threading capabalities meaning it can run more tasks at the same time, and it also has more cache to store info that is repeatably being used

it is possibility to place the products mutually back , yet , it is basically not the unique one back , never . except you return on time , i recommend return and forth in time ,and back to the time that factor occurred , and don't permit it take place ,otherwise , as quickly as broke , ( or in spite of else call you placed ), there is not any thank you to deliver it back to the unique , the way it become , never .

Nooooo problem bro(i wish I had $2k) You can play anything full speed on that baby.
I'm not very happy with the size of the video card. I think you would be better off with about 2gigs, but for games out now 1.5 is plenty. Anyway, even though the capacity of the card is low, it's pretty damn fast.
Ram is great, although i think you could have got about 12GB(for future games only not present ones!!!) once again because it's ddr-3 it's really fast.
NO probs bro. Now you just gotta get urself a set of gaming headphones or if you have any cash left over, a 5.1 sound system!!!!!(just make sure the response rate is really high, especially for multiplayer shooters)
