So for the first time I am available to create some gaming computer for myself and I do not want to build total non sense so I seek for some wisdom from the experts :rolleyes:
So far I have been suggested 2 choises :

Choise 1 :

Case :Case
Grapchic card :Grapchic card
Processor :Processor
Motherboard :Motherboard
Ram :Ram
Power supply :Power supply
Cpu cooler :Cpu cooler
SSD : SSD
HHD :HHD

In this setup I struggle a bit about the motherboard so would be nice to hear some opinions.


Choise 2 : https://www.1a.lt/or...+42xtdMtC0BV3sB

This setup is intel based , but the grapchic card is a bit cheaper.



So I seek for advices/opinions on what maybe I should change in both setups or if they are good which one should I choose. I do not want to get dissapointed on my first gaming computer as I cannot afford much for myself.
Anyway if you look in both setups and see maybe something could be changed please choose components out of this site : http://www.pccoste.e..._2#.UnAkxfnnlM4 I appreciate it a lot !
Thank you and awaiting for words of wisdomn :<

Change your Tower Case. If you want for gaming then you need to get with more slots. Also, don't get AMD processor because that processor is easy to get heat. PSU must be 800w and up. You also don't need a CPU cooler, that's only a waste of money. If you can get a tower case with atleast 7 fans like Antec 9 hundred that would be great. Motherboard should be ASUS brand as well as Video Graphics Card (Nvidia but Asus brand).

Good Luck

Perhaps you could link me to the PSU I should consider of buying in my provided website ? I am very confused and dont know where to put money or how to put them. The choise is limited in there , but I still want to stick buying everything from there.
The setup 2 seems to have everything you talked about expect PSU could you advice , thank you

Option 2 is fine but you need to add and change a few with this specs below.

Tower Case
PSU 850w or higher up to 1000w
Memory Stick 2x8 (16)
Optical Drive
VGA Card 2x (make your VGA card double (2x) since that your motherboard is an SLI ready/enable). The copper bridge/belt is included in the package, so don't forget to link those 2 VGA card into one with that copper belt.

Take note that if you really need a PC gamer then you should need to have an SLI ready motherboard and a dual VGA card.

Good Luck

Gday SpookyGhost1.
Thanks for the information.

the site I was searching for advice was a lithuanian one


Posting on more than one site then cross referencing them is likely to cause confusion for us and for you so please keep them separate.
I note that you had already posted seeking help for a new build and I did respond with a comprehensive configuration for you but did not get a reply.
Your first post. > http://www.geekstogo...aming-computer/

You say that your budget is limited to 1,300 euro in this thread and you want to prioritize it for gaming.

But in this new thread you says that...

"I do not want to build total non sense"
and this
"I do not want to get dissapointed on my first gaming computer as I cannot afford much for myself."
Lastly you say...
"I am very confused and dont know where to put money or how to put them. The choise is limited in there , but I still want to stick buying everything from there."

As I've said before that you need to remove the unnecessary specs like the SSD and Cooling Hydro.

If you're a heavy gamer then your budget should be open and not to be limited into an entry level.

My 2 PCs (Desktop and Laptop) are both for gaming. My Desktop PC is a customized and build it myself and I can say its a beast for gaming with dual VGA Card while my laptop is also customized for gaming known as an "Alienware-17" and it's only for use if I'm traveling and need to play away from my home. In regards with PSU don't waste your money of getting lower than 850w trust me.

Sub I really appreciate your help ! Anyway so far I was adviced to create this machine :


Case :http://www.pccoste.e...L3#.UnAj5PnnlM5
Grapchic card :http://www.pccoste.e...07#.UnAj7fnnlM5
Processor : http://www.pccoste.e...61#.UnEvu_nnlM4
Motherboard : http://www.pccoste.e...97#.UnEwDPnnlM4
Ram :http://www.pccoste.e...80#.UnAkDfnnlM5
Power supply :http://www.pccoste.e...99#.UnAkGPnnlM5
Cpu cooler :http://www.pccoste.e...07#.UnAkNPnnlM5
SSD : http://www.pccoste.e...21#.UnAkP_nnlM5
HHD :http://en.pccoste.es...78#.UnAkR_nnlM5 OR http://www.pccoste.e...21#.UnDXNfnnlM4


After reading your post it helped me a lot. Look so the motherboard I am planning to buy and is for my budget with SLI and later on put that other VGA as you say. http://www.pccoste.e...30#.UnFI7fnnlM5
About PSU maybe you could help me choose out of http://en.pccoste.es..._2#.UnE97fnnlM4 I would appreciate it a lot !

About CPU cooler maybe you could help me choose cheaper part ?

Thank you a lot man !

For your PSU. As I've said before, don't lower the watts of your PSU, it should be 850w or higher. I have experience of using 750w before and it will not stay longer if you're a heavy computer gamer.

A CPU cooler will give you a crowded area inside your tower case and that's why a CPU cooler is a waste of money. Your processor have fan on top of it included in the package. The tower case link that I've show you above is perfect with 4 bigger sizes of fan, and that would be enough to stay in good shape your rig.

As of now you don't need an external SSD because you already have a 1Tb internal hard drive. What you need to include is the internal DvD/Blu-Ray player, without it you can't set-up your OS and other software that you need to install unless someone will install it for you in the shop.
You can buy the SSD later since that is not important at this moment.

The case that you've shown us is not for gamer besides that's only a "Midi-Tower" and not a "Full Tower" (You need to be very careful of choosing the tower case and make sure that it is a full tower case and not a midi-tower case).

"Anyway so far I was adviced to create this machine"
Tell him/her that he/she was wrong by giving you a low quality of specs for gaming.

Good luck,


Excess:
I know that your budget is limited to 1,300 euro but don't end your dream to build a gamer PC into a nightmare.

By the way...get this kind of keyboard. That's the one I am using right now. I'm sure you will love it!
Here's an additional specs...get this speaker too! That's what I'm using on my desktop PC. Once you do that, then make sure that you will have enough time to sleep!

I am already paranoic 1 person say mine setup is okay other say it is bad :< ! By the way have you noticed above that I have changed processor and motherboard ? I went from AMD to Intel processor which is considered to be gaming processor.
Well I suppose it hurt your head to look at my setup as you seem to have amazing one , but at which part should I look ? Because for me grapchic card seems to be alright , processor alright , motherboard alright others by me considered alright. Ehhh this building ... :(

Yes I have noticed that and that should be OK. I don't believe with the MSI graphics card, for me I prepare ASUS because it's tested and you will see the difference.

Okay means middle answer
Bad means a garbage specs.
Low quality specs means you need to upgrade your rig again in a higher-end one and maybe every 6 months to 1 year which is a waste of money.

Yes much cheaper than the new link that you've shown me.
Here's the link from Asus.
Here I found what I'm looking for, for you to have idea and another link.
Lastly this link as your reference.
