im looking at building a pc for a girl i know, as her laptop is really a brick for gaming. iv been poking around ncix do to the fact i found out recently they have a store like 40minute walk from my house.
just kinda curous how this pc would stack up to current gaming trends (i skipped the OS as i plan to buy win7 x64 ult for her instead of the win8 they want to put on most of their systems at the store)
ideally i wanna make it as cheap as possible as she doesnt really like the idea of dropping 2k on a system (though that is currently her budget planned for it)
i know i can make it cheaper by switching out the vid card BUT frankly i love evga and well FTW cards are really that fking good IMO its also what im upgrading my current sys card to.
system i manually threw together stealing ideas from their "prebuilds"
case: $104.99 CAD
cpu: $349.99 CAD
heatsink: $79.99 CAD
psu: $159.99 CAD
HDD:gaming $104.98 CAD
HDD:os $107.99 CAD
dvd: $23.98 CAD
video: $424.99 CAD
|EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 1006MHZ 2GB 6.2GHZ GDDR5 SLI 2XDVI HDMI DP HDCP PCI-E DirectX 11 Video Card|
price without taxes: $1,591.88 (with 2 extra cooling fans its around 1600 which is a hell of alot less for the same system specs off their "gamer pc list" but then again ill be manually building it instead of paying the 50+ for them to build it)
the desktop she did have was at best cerc 2004 before it finally died last week on her. i am thinking of throwing some 120mm fans in the case extra but those are only like 19-25bucks each
every system ncix suggests to me has 16-32gb of ram which is just overkill and stupid IMO... im not super familier with alot of these "noname" brand products so their quality is kinda an X factor to me, but they seem to be alright price wise for her budget as well the system seems that it will support newer title games like the newer lara croft that she wants to play and possibly saints row 4 (more so, so she may kill me yet again in that game... while blaming system lag or something)
