    Default Building my own Computer

    Hey guys
    I am going to build my own computer for gaming. I will not be expecting maxed out settings because my budget is $450. I need your opinion on which PC I should build. NOTE: I am buying everything from Tiger Direct.

    First Choice
    Motherboard: BIOSTAR A780L3G AMD 780L Motherboard $59.99
    Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition $109.99
    Memory: Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 4GB DDR3 RAM $28.99
    Video Card: Radeon HD 6850 Video Card (Gigabyte Edition) $119.99 (on SALE)
    Power Supply: Ultra Limited Edition 450W Power Supply $24.99
    Hard drive: Some 500GB hard drive I previously owned

    Second Choice
    Motherboard: MSI A75MA-G55 AMD A Series Motherboard $89.99
    Processor: AMD A8-Series AD3870WNGXBOX Quad-Core A8-3870K Black Edition $119.99
    Memory: Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 4GB DDR3 RAM $28.99
    Video Card: GeForce GTX 550 Ti Video Card (Gigabyte Edition) $144.99
    Power Supply: Ultra Limited Edition 450W Power Supply $24.99
    Hard drive: Some 500GB hard drive I previously owned

    The case that I am using is a Sony case. It was used by a previous computer I owned but it stopped working so I sold the parts and kept the case. Tell me if I should change some parts and which choice is better. Thanks

    I wouldn't limit myself to one site...I bought ram off of newegg and the price difference from tiger direct (8GIG) was about 13 bucks..that was including shipping. save a little (it adds up) and buy better parts maybe or just have cash in ur wallet.

    TIger direct also has barebones pcs ...and you can call them when you place the order and exclude parts to get a lower price too if you dont want or need them.

    Really? :O I knew about the bare bones kits, but I never knew you can exclude items. Thanks!

    I got most of my parts off of Amazon, and got my graphics card off of Ebay for $165.

    Everything looks good, seeing as you're not expecting maxed out settings. The graphics card's good, I almost got that one myself. Just turn off AA and you'll get decent frames. A 450w should be fine, but that seems a bit cheap for a PSU. Remember, you get what you pay for.

    Which option are you talking about? And thanks I am thinking of doing a bare bones kit on Tiger Direct and excluding some parts. I might edit the post if I find something better around the same price
