    Cool Budget PC Build | For Gaming

    This is just a build I wanna post. It is a $700 build. This computer build is strictly for gaming and maybe for recording. I have had a lot of help on this build and I want to know if it is really good. Please tell me if any parts could be downgraded to upgrade other parts. I really need the best build for $700. Try to keep it around there. I think I have pretty good parts. Can I stick with this? Look:

    Please Help out as I need the most suggestions as possible!

    I know I have been bothering you guys so much, I just need help.

    Get a bigger HDD, 250GB is NOT going to cut it. Possibly a 1TB? There really cheap now if you look around.

    Not with 7200 RPM. Also, the Power Supply and Keyboard just ran out of stock.

    Because I would recommend buying a better cooler than the stock one.

    A couple decent Powersupplies since that one is out of stock:

    SeaSonic M12II 520W Bronze SLI Ready Modular Power Supply

    SeaSonic S12II 620W Bronze Power Supply

    >Not with 7200 RPM.
    Are you implying there are no 7200 RPM 1TB Harddrives?

    I don't know why you included a power caple, Powersupplies come with one. ._.

    This XFX 7870 is also cheaper than that Gigabyte card (so is this Sapphire Card), but I guess get the one you like the most.

    Tysm. This is so useful. Do you recommend the Sapphire or the 7870?

    If saving a little bit of money is really important to you, go for the Sapphire. Otherwise, I recommend the XFX.

    They both have slightly different display ports. The XFX also has 50 megahertz less Core Clock than the Sapphire.

    Though I think the XFX has better aesthetics, also a lifetime warranty.

    EDIT: The Sapphire also comes with a DVI to VGA adapter, and two 6 PIN to 4 PIN Power Cables. They both come with Crossfire bridges.

    Personally i would go with the sapphire. I've had two Sapphire cards and a XFX Card.
    The XFX was loud as fuck and the Sapphire's are quiet and OC well.

    I'm too poor to afford expensive things like that to have any experience with it, so I'm going off personal appeal (as I said, I love XFX's aesthetics).
    @Utazchet If Genesis's experience with Sapphire video cards is the same with that card, you should probably opt for that one, as it is cheaper as well.

    I own two Sapphire 7950 DualX Boost Edition cards and run them in CrossFire, they come with a stock core clock of 925mhz and i've OCed both cards to 1125mhz core / 1500mhz memory clocks with just a little bit of voltage tweaking. Fan speeds run at 65% for the first card and 60% for the second card. None of them go over 65*C even in summer like it is now.

    Probably the two best purchases i've made in a while.

    Explain Crossfire to me.
