would this http://www.alternate...X4_965/141595/? work too?
Background: My boyfriend will try to build me a PC with what i get as birthday and x-maspresents. But that will not be enough for a highend-machine, the i53570 is too expensive. I will need a CPU, MB, RAM. I don't know what the specifications of the graphiccard is, will have to take the previous from my boyfriend. Basically i have graphiccard,harddrive, tower and that thing for power (i cannot remember the english word right now -.-). I have been frustrated with weak CPU's for my complete gaming-carrier, i never had one that was "enough".
So i want to know, is the one my boyfriends proposing enough?
965BE may have enough power and if you feel unpleasure, you should over clock this CPU by using K10stat.
But if your PC 's CPU socket is not AM2+ or AM3, AM3+, and you want to make a new PC, I think you should chooce http://www.alternate...2/?event=search.
Using K10stat,this CPU's power is equal to 965BE,and This CPU has Graphic ability which 965BE dose not have.
You should chooce it, and chooce DDR3-1866 memories 4~8GB.
A8-3870K is very reasonable.
If you want a middle-hi PC, you should choose used-i5-2500K and GTX650.
However Intel M/B is not reasonable,this selection is good costperformance .
And I think this online shop's PC parts are not reasonable.
You should buy a PC in another shop.
