Windows 7: New Build for 650$

New Build for 650$

I want to Build a new PC for my gaming.But here are my views about how the build should be

1)Already have 4x1 TB HDD, Monitor,Keyboard,Mouse,DVD Writer

CPU-I already had really bad experience with my fx-6100 series.So i must say i would prefer intel over AMD.Im not heavy gamer but i really want my games to run smoother without any hiccups.Im never gonna over clock it for sure

SSD- Plan on taking SSD 120/240 gb for better Experience for gaming.

MOBO-It should Support my SSD with USB 3.0, Min of 6 sata ports (Due to more HDDs),No Internal Grpahics needed on MOBO,4 ram Slots.Overall it should compliment CPU the best way.

Ram- I think 8gb RAM is more than enough for me.i even thought of one.Here is the link
Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more -

I think there are rams with different frequencies.So does taking a higher frequency ram effects the performance or is it negligible.Other ram

Cabinet- I even came up with Cabinte myself

GPU- As i said Earlier Im not a heavy gamer but im gonna use it alteast for 3 years before upgrading iy.Simply saying that it should be able to handle the next forecoming games also

PSU- NO idea what to take and How many watts is needed for all this to handle.

OS- Im not gonna buy OS but suggest the best Platform to play and which OS and bit should i install

Please Select so that all over it should be good enough to handle almost all pv games at meduim settings

$650 is not enough for a gaming pc, but 4 things I could recommend.

Asus Sabertooth Z97, a Z87 would be cheaper if you can find one.


i5 4690K

EVGA or Asus GTX 960 4 GB GPU (don`t get a 2 GB card)

at least a 750 watt PSU, EVGA or Corsair

Corsair €” High performance DDR3 and DDR4 memory upgrades, 80 PLUS certified power supply units, computer cases, CPU cooling, gaming keyboards, gaming mice, gaming headsets, SSD drives, and USB flash drives

You could try gaming without a card for awhile, just use the cpu graphics.

With $650 I would just look for a pc without a graphics card to start with.

But it has to have at least an i5 :)

You could also strongly consider jumping to AMD's A series chips as they provide a sound graphic's platform on chip, then later augment with an additional GPU to work in concert with the onboard graphics.

AMD A10-5800K Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) Trinity Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX -

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
