Hello everybody,


hope you guys can help me. Im looking forward buying a new Desktop-PC
for around 700$. I just need the basic hardware: mainboard, memory, graphic, processor and power-supply.

My primary use is: programming, games and office

And would be great if you guys could tell me some websites, where its best to buy my hardware.
Thanks for all your help

cheers

If you plan to do some light gaming, then the iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE533FX would be capable of doing it.

thanks, but im more looking for hardware to buy and than put it all together on my own :-)
So im looking for parts of the computer and no good deals for buying the computer already.
Hope you understand.

In that case this may be the best way to go. Buy a kit of parts that should work together, or just find one that is close to what you want and make a note of parts. For example you like the motherboard CPU and memory and video but want a different case and drives.

Shop Barebone Kits
or
DIY PC Combos

Good Luck

Agree with Roger, but I would add Amazon as a vendor for price comparison on any components.

You might get a better deal if you buy separates and get those components on sale from different vendors instead of buying a "KIT". I also find that ready to assemble "kits" have a tendency to have at least one weak point, ie.. the GPU is not strong enough to play the games you want or the PSU is of poor quality, etc.- of coarse there are exceptions. Also what type of games are you planing on playing? Are we talking Battlefield3 or WOW?

For a computer that does decent PC gaming, you may need to increase your budget by $50 to $100. If you do that, I suggest the following...

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW - This is a simple case, but it should meet your needs until you need very large graphics cards. $54

Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 - Think of this as the base model of the AMD chipsets. If you think you will be using Crossfire, you may want to get a 990FX-based motherboard. $79

CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ - This is not an FX-8000 eight core CPU, your budget would need to be about $800 before I would go for that. Unless you are doing some hardcore scientific number crunching, this will do well, even in games. $139

GPU: HIS H785F1G2M Radeon HD 7850 - The price on this card puts in the entry portion of the gaming GPU bracket, you can consider the 7870 if you need a bit more power. $169

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W - This can run all but the highest end graphics cards. $69 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - This is a single 8GB stick of RAM, which should be more than enough. $32

HDD: Western Digital WD Blue WD7500AZEX 750GB - Should be enough, unless you store tons of multimedia. $84

ODD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - A basic drive is all you really need. $20

OS: Windows 8 64-bit - The under-the-hood improvements outweigh the new start screen. I rarely do anything to take me there. $99

Grand Total: $752

If your gaming consists mostly of old or Flash-based games, you can keep the above configuration, but remove the GPU and replace the following components.

CPU: AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 - This is an APU, or AMD's take on a CPU with a GPU built-in. It doesn't have the same power as the FX CPU and uses the Piledriver architecture, just like the FX, but fewer "cores". This does, however, have the best GPU you can get in a CPU+GPU package. $129

Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X - This allows the use FM2 APU's, but is very similar to the 970 chipset. Like the 970 chipset, it isn't ideal for Crossfire setups. $139

Grand Total: $632

OK...finally got around to building this computer for myself (listed below) and I'm very happy with how it came out so a big 'thank you' to DJBPace07!

I did substitute a couple components as well as adding a SSD for the OS (Windows 7) but basically I did this build and would recommend it!

With the added and substituted components my cost was just over $900

Thanks!
