Default Re: Looking for a Custom Built Gaming PC For 1000?

The standard right now is ATX form factor. ATX motherboards have 7 expansion slots. There's also micro ATX, which has 4 expansion slots. (it's longer)

A micro-ATX motherboard will fit an ATX case, but for obvious reasons an ATX motherboard will not fit in a Micro-ATX case.

Pretty much any good case you get will be ATX....


Here:

OS- Windows 7 Home Premium Retail- 95 (OEM was only 20 cheaper..)
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/168373

CPU- Intel Core i7 860- 223
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172754

Mobo- Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4 iP55- 137
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173537

GPU- ATI Radeon HD5850- 250
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/194363

RAM- G-Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB- 95
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/180490

Case- NZXT M59- 48
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173550

PSU- Corsair 850W TX Series- 100
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152604

Hard Drive- Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB- 60
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173804

DVD Burner- LiteOn IHAS124-19- 18
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/176026



If you want to save a bit, change the cpu to a Core i5 750.

It'll be about the same in gaming, but slower in video encoding. (although, if you're using Adobe software to do the video, the 5850 can handle the workload anyway)

Excuse my ignorance but would all the above items be everything I would need to build a PC?

Default Re: Looking for a Custom Built Gaming PC For 1000?

the case is OOS, here's a case that's a little bit more but probably better than the original...

Antec 902



or this is a good combo deal on a case and psu which would be cheaper than the two parts you had listed...

CM Scout and CM Silent Pro 700w modular psu

That must have just gone oos. It was there when I posted it, lol.

NZXT Beta EVO- 36
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191831

Same chassis as the M59 and Lexa S, but with a different side panel and faceplate.

It only has one fan, but it should be ok if you're not overclocking or anything. It has great passive cooling.

The 902 ans Storm Scout are better, no doubt, but only because they have more fans. This one supports 6 fans, so if you really need more it's possible to add them.

Nice build plan

I like the look of the Antec 900 as I have built 2 PC's using it, but the inclusion of air filters in the 902 is a nice feature

There is a onlne company that can really help with making custom PC's. You can request for a custom built PC for a price that probably fits your $2000 price range.
http://http://www.buydirectpc.com/cu...ice-quote.html
Here is the custom request. You can also see the computers in the home page. They look pretty shiny!

Default Re: Looking for a Custom Built Gaming PC For 1000?

So why would I need more fans? Sorry this is all education to me. I would be inclined to go with what 'Mutant Corn' has detailed, could this setup be upgraded easily. What I mean is would the Motherboard support higher end CPU's etc?

Right so brought "Building A PC For Dummies", and it seems like it isn't totally beyond the realms of possibility for me, so gonna give this a go in a couple of months when I get some cash together. And getting more help off you guys. So sticking to the detailed list of hardware would this give me the best for games and rendering, compressing videos etc?
