I priced out a killer rig complete less, monitor. keyboard and mouse and a wicked AMD, ASUS, SEAGATE, G SKILL, SEASONIC, ASUS, NZXT rig was pricing at just under 1,000.00 usd. I was a discounted top flight gaming rig with 7950 GPU.

That's a great spec there for the price.

Hi Rain08. looks like a good rig but any reason for opting on Haswell? also are you looking to overclock the rig? if not then no need to spend the extra on a K series processor.

maybe you could get yourself a better deal if running an ivybridge processor with a 1155 socket motherboard.

also windows 7 ultimate is probably overkill for your needs. are you looking to backup your computer using a network? if not then home premium will do just fine for now.

just a thought.

linnemeyerhere option of the AMD would be a good option where cost is concerned.

Well linnemeyerhere's option is actually good, but the only problem is that it's more than my budget and the CPU and GPU is almost similar to the one on Forbes. I may use his specs because as time passes by and the last time I checked, the Peso to Dollar exchange rate is getting lower. It means that less Peso is used to make a dollar; less used is equal to getting a Dollar quick. Anyways here's the specs (I edited it) on the link if you haven't seen it.

Quote:
CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5FGHz 6-Core Processor | Currently $109 at Amazon

Motherboard: MSI 970A-G53 | Currently $59.99 at Newegg

System Memory: 8GB Kingston HyperX Blu (2 x 4GB) | over at Amazon for $68.74.

Storage #1: Sandisk ReadyCache 32GB SSD | It’s available for $48.99 at Newegg. However, if you have an extra $40 to put toward this system, I’d strongly recommend a full-blown 120GB SSD, specifically the Kingston SSDNow V300, which can be snagged for a very reasonable $87.31 on Amazon.

Storage #2: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive | pick this up for $68.06 at Amazon.
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB | $199 after mail-in-rebate. (newegg)

Case: Corsair Carbide 200R ATX Mid-Tower Chassis | for $49.99 at Newegg with mail-in rebate.

Power Supply: Corsair CX500M 500W Modular PSU 80 PLUS Bronze Certified | at NewEgg for about $55.99.

OS: Windows 8 64-bit | currently available for $86.99 at Amazon.

Optionally, you can buy a 600W or higher power supply, since the motherboard we’re using is CrossFire compatible. Add a 2nd Radeon HD 7950 down the road, alongside some additional case fans, and you have an absolute beast on your hands.
The total is $788*; it's good to me but I want to squeeze every penny on my budget to upgrade the parts to a better one.

*I included the 120GB SSD and rounded-off the numbers with decimals to a whole number.

Drop the SSD. I'll say again that an SSD really is a luxury and if you're on a budget it's definitely not essential. Use the extra cash to upgrade your other components.

Thanks again for giving a help. I'll drop the SSD and W8; I'm thinking of putting the extra money on an external HDD (1st) and the rest is for the cooling (2nd) and keyboard/mouse (3rd). Any suggestions (please put those that can still fit, if not, then leave it)?

Don't buy an external HDD out of your initial budget, save up for one after you've bought your rig.

Cooling? As long as you have a decent case with front intake and rear exhaust fans you should be fine. The only additional cooling you'll need is for the CPU, and if you don't intend to overclock then you can pick up a decent triple copper heatpipe air cooler for around $30 or so.

Keyboard and mouse, Microsoft Sidewinder X4 and a Gigabyte M6900. Cheap but more than adequate for gaming, may knock you back $70 or so for both.

I think with some careful shopping and maybe backing down some on the GPU you could be in budget or real close? I can always spend other peoples money.....sorry ! lol

Look at my specs. My rig is barely passable as a gaming rig. I find that most games, don't even use 30% of the CPU. It's all about the Graphics card, and the RAM. My buddy spent $7,500 on his rig. Needless to say, it performed only 20% better than mine did.


I would have to say, listen to linne when it comes to building a pc on a budget. He's suggested to me different ways to maximize performance. He's also the guy who suggested I wait for computer parts, and you know what? I listened, and I love my new system.
