So I have all the parts that I believe stay basically in my four hundred dollar range budget. If anyone has any ideas to better or cheaper pieces, I'm open to suggestions. Also I will list the hardware of my laptop in case it is beneficial for me to take apart my laptop also. Thanks.

Hi there well If you plan to be gaming I can only recommend an Intel based System

 

See a benchmark comparison of yours vs the build I put together for you.

 

Of course it costs a little more but I think you will be happier.

 

My 2cents.

Slightly confused on why you chose an I7 with only 4GB of RAM. I would change it to an I3 or I5, but thats just me.

Here would be my suggestion; a souped up APU.


Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.

N00b,

 

I see your build is good... but is it good enough for gaming purposes?

 

I don't know.

 

I mean... don't you think that instead blowing money on a SSD, there should be an upgraded graphics card to handle the demands of the games that the client might play?

 

Just my 3 cents...

** Rest of post deleted for brevity **

Jackson,

 

My recommended build is $150 over your $400 limit. Yes, that is true, but if you really wanted a true gaming platform computer build, this build gives you that plus you can upgrade the processor to an i5 4690k or to an i7 4790k.

 

You can get up to 32 GB of RAM.

 

The motherboard has a Z97 Intel chipset that enables you to upgrade either processor that I just mentioned plus the chipset pairs very nicely with any of those 3 processors that I mentioned in this thread, in which that gives you maximum performance all around.

 

What you want to prevent is bottlenecking the computer in any form, because if you run into bottlenecking, then you are not getting your money's worth. That's why it's important to try to pair up processors with compatible motherboards to maximize your computer investment.

 

The i3 4160 dual core processor that I picked has hyperthreading which gives you the maximum performance from that processor.

 

As for the hard drive, I picked one of the better hard drives made by Western Digital, the Black Series running at 7200 RPM, which is more than suitable for your needs.

 

So... bottom line... save up another $150 and you'll get a gaming computer that can be easily upgraded in the future without breaking your bank account.

Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Superclocked Video Card  ($139.99 @ Amazon)

Power Supply: SeaSonic 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply  ($55.98 @ Newegg)
