Hello once again guys, slight change of plan!
I'm in need of a new pc build or somewhat cheaper for gaming that could run high-ultra perfectly fine
but I'm not sure if my graphics cards that I have that my bro left me could do the job.
If it can would it be a hassle to build a pc around the graphics card and the power supply or pc partpicker for me?
 

 

The graphics card is 

XFX CORE RADEON 7850 860M 2GB D5 2x mDP HDMI 2x DVI ( I have 2 of these)

http://www.amazon.co...M/dp/B007MJURAA

 

The power supply is

Corsair TX750M Enthusiast Series TX 750W ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze PSU

http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B005DGEOJO

 

Please if you could build a pc around these 2 that is capable of running high end games (new ones) on ultra/high at good fps that would be amazing but if the gpu cant handle it please say so.

Gday KingJamieGrant.

We can configure a build around those parts but do need a budget.

PSU is good and will handle a high end build. > http://www.kitguru.n...eview-tx750m/2/

Crossfire will work but heat output will be quite high, so a quality case with excellent airflow will be needed. GPU specs, > http://www.gpuzoo.co...-785A-CNL4.html

Thanks for the fast replies, sorry I took so long, maybe around 500-700 (700 pushing it, but if it could mean running these new high end games on ultra/high - I wouldn't mind splashing out more).

Thanks for the information provided on the psu and the specs on the gpu.

Hopefully a good build can come out of this and if you could include in the budget a monitor also that would be sweet.

 

Once again, thanks Iammykyl for the help.

You are welcome, :thumbsup:

If you are still intending to to use the computer for video/photo editing, (your previous build enquiry), this configuration uses a Xeon E3-1241 v3 CPU, same architecture as an i7 but no iGPU.

It just pips the i5 4690K in gaming and outperforms it in aplications.

http://www.pc-specs....i5-4690k-3-5ghz

1st build. > http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/B3qpkL

 

I will post another one later and try to get a monitor in as well.

Evening,

Thanks for the information don't stress too hard im available all day so take your time. I think I would mostly use it for gaming to be honest as I'm a novelist video/photo editor.

 

Once again thanks for the information regarding the build, looks great so far.

Thanks Iammykyl.

Hello, I was wondering would this build be any good here?

http://www.amazon.co...st/T9GV157DD09O

 

This is not including the 2 graphics card and power supply I already have.

My apologies KingJamieGrant, I did configure a second build but must have forgotten to click the post button.

Your selected MB gets good reviews, > http://hexus.net/tec...-krait-edition/but, does not support the i5 4690K tdp (thermal design power) of 88 watts.

it will support the i5 4670K with a tdp of 84 watts, list, > http://hexus.net/tec...-krait-edition/ Options, a different MB, or use the i5 4670K.

 

 Selected RAM is OK, but not best practice as it is 1 x 8GB stick.   RAM does go west and if that single stick has issues, you have no working computer, best advice is 2 x 4GB kit = 8GB, if one stick fails, you still have a working system.

 

An after market cooler is not required.   The stock cooler is tested and designed to support the CPU, even if you use the Turbo key, also, where a cooler is supplied with a boxed retail CPU from both Intel/AMD and you use any different cooling solution, you have voided the 3 year warranty.   If you need to return the CPU for any reason and support is made aware of the altered specs, you could be denied a repair or replacement.   I advice using the stock cooler and if not satisfied, consider an aftermarket one, but you do so at your own risk.

Note, I have changed the RAM but not the MB or CPU. let us know which you want to change.

Not included the monitor as it is not one I would consider.   With your Crosfire GPUs you should be going for a 144Hz monitor. > http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B00B2HH7G0

Thank you ever so much for the hefty reply!

I think I would just stick with the new motherboard you insisted, as long as it good!

As for the after market cooler if it voids warranty I won't be buying it then.

I will also factor in the 144Hz monitor - shouldn't add too much the price.

Thank you also for the new updated pc part-picker build.

 

Also what would have 16GB of ram allow me to do? Is it necessary for a "more" better

gaming experience and a "faster" computer? Or is 8GB ram perfectly fine.

 

Thannks once again Iammykyl.

Just so there is no misunderstanding.

You want to keep the slightly faster i5 4690K CPU?

You want to change the MSI MB for a different one?

 

Re. RAM.   8GB is more than enough for a high end gaming build.   If you are going to dabble with photo/video editing or run multiple virtual machines, then 16GB or more is very desirable.  A person writing programs for, say games/development, would use one or more VMs for testing.   "Different virtualization techniques are used, based on the desired usage. Native execution is based on direct virtualization of the underlying raw hardware, thus it provides multiple "instances" of the same architecture as a real machine is based on," source, > https://en.wikipedia...Virtual_machine

 

You are very welcome :rockon:

Actually, keep the slightly faster CPU i5 4690k and change the motherboard? 

If that's aright with you.

Also thanks for the explanation of the more ram and etc. Very insightful and helpful ;3

 

Thanks once again Iammykyl

Thanks for the update, gotcha.

I will sort an alternative good as or better than the MSI for as near to it's price as possible..

 

In the meantime some  :headscratch:  :headhurt: for you :whistling:

Gday.

I have selected the Asrock Exreme4 as it has everything your build requires and the high end components will cope with the stress of crossfire GPUs.   Colour is black, so changed the RAM, to match, same specs,  > http://www.asrock.co...e4/index.us.asp

Your case is still white, possible you chose it to go with your original colour scheme, do you want to change it for black?

 

Added an optional monitor, gives an idea of total cost.

 

Revised build, > http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/97JXzy

Thanks for updating it and changing it around!
If I'm honest I don't really mind what colour the case is so I might just keep it white.

Thank you for all the information provided I think I'll start purchasing all the stuff soon.

I'm just making sure I have all the right equipment and accessories added to the list

so I can make sure the PC is top notch and the cable management will be too.

I'm also right now just finding software to install the pc and etc.

 

Thanks Iammykyl

Gday.

Take care with the time period over which you purchase parts.   You can check for damage when you  receive a part, but not if it works OK.   Many parts have a 30 day DOA (dead on arrival) return policy and if issues outside that time, then you have to go though the normal RMA warranty path which can take a long time. 

 

Your parts will come with all nec cables and hardware, except, you will need,

1 additional SATA Data cable, example > http://www.ebuyer.co...e-uk-lsatarnd12

1 mini speaker which allows you to hear hardware error beeps generated by the BIOS at POST, (https://en.wikipedia...er-on_self-test) example > http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00GQPBMMI/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=569136327&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B002W4M0DW&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=0KV4J5W9Z3AD333H2180

 

Can you tell us what cables you have that came with the video cards? 

 

Download and familiarize yourself with your main hardware.

This section is about software.

What software do you think you need or are looking for?

Re. GPU.   I would be best not to use the installation disc/s you have but to download and install the latest one, automatically, from this site, > http://support.amd.com/en-us/download 

 

Your welcome.  :rockon:
