Just a few questions in regards to the PC I'm looking to build. The build I have so far is as follows:
Motherboard:MSI 890GXM-G65 (Retail, FW, RAID, Gb-LAN, VGA, Sound, µATX)
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T (Boxed, OPGA, "Thuban", Black Edition)
Ram: GeIL 8 GB DDR3-1333 Kit (Light-Retail, GE38GB1333C7DC, EVO ONE)
Primary HDD: Apacer 120GB SSD (boot drive, already own this disk)
Secondary HDD: Samsung Spinpoint 7200RPM 1Tb
Graphics Card: Radeon 5670 Passive Cooled / Radeon 6750 Passive Cooled / Radeon 6770 Passive Cooled
Power Supply: Hyper 580 Watts (already own it, PSU has 2 fans in it which seemed quite nice?)
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster BX2450 (1920x1080)
Keyboard: Logitech G15 (old one, already own it)
Mouse: Logitech G500 (already own it)
I already own some of the parts I want to use, but a few things have been very confusing for me and I don't know what to do.
I have a budget for up to around 700-800 euro maybe, (residing in Sweden at the moment). The main purpose for this computer is some gaming, nothing too heavy (final fantasy 11, starcraft 2, americas army online, some newer shooters probably too). I'd like my computer to be somewhat silent, so the passive cooled graphics cards seem like a good option. I'm currently writing this off my dads computer which is a similar build and works quite well (even in starcraft 2)
There are a few questions I have.
1. What graphics card should I go for out of those 3? I'm not too sure about the difference in them. I know the 6770 won't be available in Sweden until august so I'd have to wait, but I think the mobo processor will run FFXI(final fantasy 11) without much trouble.
2. What case would you suggest? I had my eyes on a cooler master centurion 2, but I'm not sure how good these are.. I see a lot of computers have a PSU slot on the bottom now... Is this good? I'd like my computer to be silent like I said above.
3. Hard drive: this will be just for storage really as I'll be using the SSD for booting. 7200 seems faster, but 5600 more silent/eco friendly? What would be a good option here?
I think this is everything I'd like to ask for now... If I think of anything else, I'll try to edit it in later on Thanks in advance.
