    Default Since everyone's doing it ..

    I'm looking into building a PC this summer just for the hell of it. That way I can have my laptop dedicated to school and then a rig to fuck shit up

    Basically what I want is list of the basic necessities of what I need. I'm probably going to have a $1000-1500 budget (for now). I'm basically want to use this rig to able to play any game I really want/ be able to shit out graphics lol. Basically do whatever I want without having a problem whatsoever (so-to-speak) .

    Here's a good build, you will be able to max out any games with decent FPS at worst. If you want to go Intel, switch out the 8350 for a 3570K and get a Intel mobo. Also, the case is a bit pricey and is just a preference of mine due to how it looks, there are many cheaper cases out there. With a monitor, OS, shipping, etc. you will be looking at around $1500.


    CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Amazon)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($32.86 @ Amazon)

    why the fuck would you just swap out the board and processor without swapping the card. Mixing intel and ati is stupid.

    Why is it stupid? Using Intel + ATI does not make it any less stable or hinder the performance in any way.

    If you've got a budget that high, I recommend a 3570k for your processor.

    Considering it's a gaming rig, the 3570K would most likely be a better choice. The 8350 isn't very far behind the 3570K when it comes to gaming (most games the FPS difference would be so miniscule you wouldn't notice) and wouldn't bottleneck the 7950 except maybe in Skyrim. The 8350 really puts use to its 8 cores in video rendering and editing applications, that's where you'll really see the difference. So, if this is solely a gaming, go with the 3570K, but if it's going to double as a work place, the 8350 may be a better choice.

    Interesting. Cause I've been looking in getting into more video editing and get into 3D modeling and junk. I'll definitely keep this in mind

    No shit, ive built computers before. Why would I reply in this thread if I didnt.

    if you want the best performance possible, dont mix intel with ati, or vice versa.
