What parts do you recommend for a good pc for around 1000-1200$
This is my build and it works fine with most games on high quality. Costed about 1300NZD which is about 1000USD
ZALMAN ZM600-GV 600W ATX PSU with MEPS Ready
COOLER MASTER Storm ENFORCER w/ Side window Mid Tower True Gaming Chassis w/ No PSU
Gigabyte GV-N760WF2OC-2GD Geforce GTX760 2GB GDDR5 Video card with WindForce Dual Fan , Daul DVI+HDMI+Display Ports
LG GH24NSB0 24X SATA INTERNAL SATA DVD WRITER Black colour , OEM package
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 SATA3 HDD 64M CACHE 7200RPM NCQ
G.SKILL Ripjaws X 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz (PC3 12800) High Performance Desktop Memory 240-Pin Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H Socket 1150,Intel B85 CHipset, mATX Form, 4 X DDR3 DIMM,VGA/DVI/HDMI,4 X SATA3,USB3
Intel NEW Haswell Core i7-4790 3.6GHz 8MB LGA1150 (B85, H97,Z97 Motherboard Required)
Get a "continuous" 600w+ power supply, i5 /w 1150 motherboard, 2133 speed ram, and gtx 970 gpu.. if you can find one lol.
It also depends on what you would be doing as well. Gaming? Video rendering?
^ This build is specifically for gaming btw.
The GTX 980 is out! Newest GTX GPU. i recommend that
No computer with a 1080p monitor should need a 980, it is really more for the 4k set ups.
The 970 would suffice for running every game on ultra.
Or a 760, lol.
Or wait a couple weeks for the 960 to get to market.
Or don't necropost.
Yeah, but I considered since they're selling the 760 on Amazon for like $250. The 970 is only $80 more. Might as well shell out the extra $80.
Without being too specific, the key things you'll want to include to maximize performance (1200 just for tower) is an i7-6700k cpu and a gtx 1070 (or 1080 if it fits the budget). For ram, unless you are going to be doing computational tasks such as video editing, you should 8 gigs. Most people will never hit that cap. PSU, I recommend any EVGA SuperNova models. HTH!
PSu: EVGA SUPERNOVA G2 MODELS. I grabbed the G2L for lights but got the 750 watts for extra nice looking cables. original price on mines was around 129? but got a deal that dropped it to $79.99. If I was you i would budget at least $1400... only because parts would be around 1000-1200 but the tax shoots it up to 1400+ lol!!!
