I would like to buy a gaming or high performance pc. Im looking to spend around 800 euro and was wonderign could anyone build me a pc online one a site that will build it with the specs youve specified and ship it to ireland. Looking for at least 8gb ram,1tb hdd,a wireless network card, itel based,nice case with blue fans etc,3.0ghz + ,graphic card capable of running 2-3 monitors and thats really it.
AMD FX 8120; 8 Cores @ 4.21Ghz On Liquid (AMD is a better choice)
ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ 990GX Chipset
SLi Nvidia GTS 450's
Dominator 8Gb DDR3 @ 2100Mhz (With Spreaders)
SunBeam Acrylic Glass Case
Antec 880W Gold 80 Certified
These are my specs but i only paid like 800$ for it... YOu'd save alot!
AMD "bulldozer" is really impressive, but they aren't available here yet.
The 8-core Cpu's don't even match up to Sandy Bridge COre i5 2500.
it's actually worse then it's Previous line of six cores to =/
Really? sad thing, i had some hopes on AMD.
Don't know, but now a days i believe even the integrated graphics card on a laptop computer using the second generation core architecture is capable of doing that, it isn't so high end anymore.
Recently I actually made a build for someone on another forums, I happened to make it on Komplett.ie, a great Irish computer part retailer which is owned by a Dutch fellow. Now this is a bit over your budget but it can give you an idea of what I would build and what it comes down to, in fact it's actually pretty much the same as my PC asides from a more powerful graphics card I have.
You could definitely save money by cutting out the SSD, downgrade the processor to an i2600k, get a less powerful graphics card, get a cheaper case and maybe a slightly lower powered PSU. Then you could easily bring it down to your budget level without losing much performance power.
Typically AMD is a better choice for saving money, but Intel would give you far more bang in every case, plus the over-clocking capabilities of the new Sandy Bridge processors is amazing. I would go for Intel if I were you and save money on the graphics card being ATI instead of nVidia.
I think an 1TB hard drive or 2 in Raid 0, would be a nice replacement.
