  • Want to build new computer

    I don't know how to build one or what parts I need but I am willing to spend about 5.5k on it. PLEASE HELP ME = ).

    Re: Want to build new computer

    5.5k is A LOT of money for a computer. To build a great rig I'm sure you can use half that money. I recently built my first computer rig and it was surprisingly easy. I won't g out and give recommendations as there are more people qualified to do so.

      Yeah, you can pretty much build an absolute top of the line rig for around 3k.

        An absolute beast of a machine can be had for $2500-$3000.

        What are your specs/wants?

              The current i7's can be OC'd pretty hard stock, so there's no real need to drop a grand on a processor.

                i don't like to overclock - it shortens the cpu's lifespan, and someone handed me 5500, remember

                  You forgot to add in a 1200W PSU that'll cost you around $600.

                  Then there's one of those super-big and super-expensive Lian-Li cases that could run upwards of $400.

                  You could probably do Tri-SLI with a 3rd GTX285/295. ;)

                  Anyways...back on topic.

                  AlphaMarksman,

                  What do you want to do with the rig?

                  How long do you plan on keeping it as your primary desktop?

                  Do you want a portable small form-factor system or do you not mind having a SOHO tower next to your desk that requires wheels to move around?

                  Do you need a complete computer setup (monitor, peripherals, speakers, and PC)? Or do you just need/want a new rig?

                    I gave 700 for case, psu, keyboard, mouse, and BR

                    I did forget the two dual ATSC/ NTSC TV tuners for the media center...
