Price cant exceed like 1700$, Im in Canada so make sure the price stays the same
t exceed like 1700$, I
everything is fine
apart from the fact it's blowing his budget :3
it's 1703.. :p
haha oops i was looking at the grand total :3
With taxes it's over budget.
Yea. When I was ready to buy my PC I went to the shop and gathered all the parts only to realise afterward (at the till) that I had to downgrade a couple parts significantly to make up for the money I had to pay in HST :P
Hi, I made this parts list for you which is just under 1700 dollars.
Taking into consideration your budget, I made some noteworthy changes that I would like for you to keep in mind and use as a basis for your future decisions.
Please let me know what you think! Thanks :)
What was wrong with op's original cheaper ram? His gpu was better too. Good move to corsair psu. Which you had posted the build link to see estimated power use.
Does having a Cooler Master PSU change much? I'm not nreally sure about this stuff, I'd be willing to blow a few extra bucks to get a better psu if it's really that much of a difference.
A bad PSU can fry your whole system. Cooler Master isn't known as one of the top brands for PSUs. Some reliable brands are Corsair, Sesonic, Antec, XFX.
This better? And it's cheaper than the other PSU too.
Looks good to me :)
Seasonic make the components for Corsair's PSUs.. fyi :P
Another point was to get an Asus motherboard. Asus make more reliable motherboards in my experience.
Also another point to mention is the fact that I removed the ODD. Of course this is just a personal decision being that I find them too slow and that they create too much unnecessary heat :3
His ram was like 5 dollars more... You can probably ignore my RAM and GPU suggestions though anyway :P hehe
Also, what motherboard is good, and around my price range? I want SLI support, just in case I go mental and buy another 780. It needs to support Devils Canyon as well.
I want it to be similar price to the MSI one I have now.
Optical Disc Drive.
I'm afraid there isn't an Asus motherboard which supports SLI in that price range. The next model up which can directly compete with the MSI one is:
Ah, well how would I install Windows and such without the ODD?
I remove it after?
