You should make some for international users.
I live in Australia and a gaming computer that costs less than $1000 would be great.
Cos I'm broke as ****, but could probably get together about $1000 for it

If you're willing to spend the money, go for the best cpu you can get, probably i7 4790k, get a titan from nVidia, and 16Gb of good quality RAM. The thing to remember when building a PC is that to get the full worth out of your parts, you have to have ALL good parts. If you have quad SLI Titans, that doesn't mean **** unless you have a good CPU etc as well.
If you haven't built a PC before, you might want to go to one of those sites where they build them for you, check out some of their builds, and check out loads of guides telling you how to do it

The **** you want a Titan for? That ****** only for the MOST extreme of builders.
Just get a 780, they're only a small step down from a Titan, and nowhere near as expensive.

Yeah, I have a 780, and it does me fine, but if you really want to push everything to be able to play at the highest settings and actually get use out of your 144Hz monitor, or even a 4K one, you would probably want to go for something better.

Yeah, but even quad-Titans can barely handle 4K qualities.
That being said, nvidia's GSync system is looking very promising for gamers as far as going to help GPU performance, and may may 4K gaming much more viable.
So personally, I think joining the 4K gravy train now is a tad premature.

Oh yeah, I agree completely, I think higher refresh rate monitors with GSync are way better than 4K right now. Especially since 4K isn't actually supported in anything higher than 60Hz at the minute.
I only use a 24" monitor on my desk, so I don't think I would see as much of a quality difference between this 1080p 60Hz and a 4K 60Hz as I would between it and a 144Hz GSync monitor.

Number 1: Never ever use the stock CPU cooler.

Number 2: Pentium is a bad choice, FX really has the best price performance ratio in this range, though an i3-i5 is also fine.

Number 3: Why the hell would you use a 144 Hz screen when the graphics card wont run anything modern past 60 fps on high-ultra settings?

Number 4: You don't need 16 GB of ram for gaming. This is a gaming rig. Why recommend it?

Number 5: The graphics card is really kind of weak, if you want to game at 1080p, good settings, decent framerate, R9 280x (or the Nvidia equivelant) is really a minimum. You spring 80 extra bucks for a 25%+ increase in gaming performance.

Number 6: If you really need a wireless adapter that's really the very extremely stupidly last place where you should try to save money, just pay the extra 20 bucks for a proper one.

stock cpu cooler is just fine if you aren't overclocking.

The cpu listed is a devils canyon cpu, and is meant to be overclocked, so there's that. I would rather have the G3258 over an i3 anyday. Then again, I would also rather have an Athlon ii x4 750k/760k over the G3258.

Also, I built a rig with an r7 260x + FX6300 for my little brother, and it runs games like metro: last light just fine on high (not ultra) settings.

In fairness, Intels run cooler and require less power than AMD do, on average.
All monitors are expensive at this point, and none of them are really worth their price, IMO.
No, you don't, but RAM is cheap, so he's trying to get people to buy something, so he's got to put some more expensive options up that would make some more money.
It's not for gaming at 1080p, it's supposed to be a low-medium end rig that can handle most older/less resource intensive games IE TF2, WoW, LoL, CoD, etc. , it's not supposed to be a high-end gaming tank.
Wires are ALWAYS the way to go with internet. ALWAYS.

Admin, why don't you safe on the monitor and upgrade the CPU and motherboard a bit?

I get that you want the commision, but this is not the way it should be done. Give people something fair for their money.

G32584 ($59) + H81M-LE ($69,25) + XL2411Z ($230) = $358,25
i5 4460 ($190) + GA-B85M-D3H ($75) + BenQ VA GW2450HM ($160) = $425

This small difference will impact your performance positively by quite a bit.

144hz monitor is way overkill at that price range. you shouldn't get a 120hz+ monitor unless you have a 280x or above.

the case fan at the end is unnecessary.

and the highest end AMD gpu is not the r9 290, it is the r9 290x2.

www.amazon.com/XFX-Closed-Cooling-Graphics-R9295X8

though you probably want the highest end single-gpu card, that would be the r9 290x

I'm not saying what you've got set up here is necessarily bad, but I would like to point out that Sims 4 is recommending a quad-core CPU and a GTX 650+ GPU.

www.pcgamer.com/2014/08/26/the-sims-4-recommended-system-requirements-revealed-hope-you-have-a-core-i5/

Like I said, I'm not trying to stop you, I'm just pointing this out.

I would also like to take this time to point out that platter hard drives are cheap as dirt, and cache does seem to help loading performance in games.

Personally, I would choose this HDD: www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Cache-Desktop-WD100
It's a little more expensive, but it should be a very solid hard drive.

uwotm800?   
 Actually, I wish gamers could get like 10 or 12 GB of RAM, that'd be the just right amount, not way too much, but not too little in a few more years as resource demand increases. Hell, modded Minecraft with increased render distances can cause Java to take up over 5GB of RAM on my PC.

actualy 8350 is better than 4670k acording to this

Also AMD may be onto something with the whole more cores .
Intel realy excels in single core performance that AMD just cant compare ,
but if more games start to support Multithreading like minecraft , amd may be the way to go for gaming .

But i realy want to see some real benchmarks on each CPU's watt usage ,on idle/regular/heavy loads , i realy dont understand why it doesnt exist .

Well, that's just with CPU stuff, not where CPU and GPU have to work together.

Where did you get 1440p from? It says 144Hz, which is refresh rate. Its a 1080p monitor dingus

I read that line wrong, not sure how I managed to misinterpret it as 1440p. Point still stands with that though. Why splurge on a 144hz monitor that costs half as much as the build itself when you wont be seeing much over 60fps in any recent game?

Do you own a 144hz monitor? It's a myth that a refresh rate higher than your frames is useless, it really isn't.

It has its benefits, yes. But that doesn't mean you should get one. Getting a framerate that isn't as high as your refresh rate increases screen tearing iirc (I could be completely wrong on that) so I don't really recommend buying a monitor as high end as that unless you plan on running an equally specced PC.

Sadly, that dual core does benchmark better than AMDs X4 lineup and is half the price. That really is the best choice cpu for a gaming pc with extreme budget limits.
Plus, the socket type allows for an easy upgrade down the line. This is really just a startup machine.

I do agree with the strange choices in HDD, wireless adapter, and monitor, though... There are clearly better options out there for a similar price, with the exception of the monitor. That 1ms response time is ***********.jpg

Oh, and the refresh rate is 144Hz, the monitor does not support a resolution of 2560 x 1440. It maxes out at 1920 x 1080. And even if it were, it's not like you're FORED to run it at max res.

Ok guys stop this with the AMD vs INTEL .
IMO Intel is the way to go ..WOOOO there AMD Fanboy hold your pants and get that raging bonner away from me .
The only reason i choose intel over AMD is the power consumption and the fact that the benchmark charts are heavily populated by Intel .
www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

It is true that they are WAAAAY cheaper than intel when you compare them performance wise , but you pay it back in the electric bill . Especially in Greece were electricity is quite expensive compared to other countries .Unless AMD gets their **** together and lowers its power consumption INTEL (at least for Greeks) is the way to go .

TLR
If you are okay with high power consumption , AMD is the way to go .

I remember a video that I saw that compared the full load draw of two computers, one witrh a 3770k, and one with an fx 8350, and they figured that if one were to leave the computers at full load for 2-3 hours a day, 365 days a year, one would pay $20 more for electricity for the amd build over the intel build.

I do not remember who published this video, but many on /g/ refer to him as the "amd shill"

Stop right there criminal scum .Each country has its own pricing on electricity .
So telling me 20$ means jack **** .You want me to see the difference ? Give me the KwH consumption of a full load pc .Then i will multiply that by the cost of each KwH in my country and see if it realy is worth .

Just looking at the TDP on avarage AMD , its 3 times that of an Intel .That is probably due to the fact the avarage AMD cpu has double the cores of an Intel of the same price .
BUT HOLD ON RIGHT THERE . If there is one think that i learned from Linus is that more cores doesnt mean better performance .Multithreading is a thing but most games dont actualy benefit from it at all , and unless you are going to be running 3D rendering or Video editing more cores will not give you that much better performance .
Example of a game benefiting from multithreading is MINECRAFT ...ooh yes the block world has done it again , adding multithreading by using different cores on each dimension (overworld/end/nether) And some other things that i didnt understand about chunks .Still 4 cores should be enough but who am i to tell you different .

The TDP of an FX-8350 is 125w, that's less than twice that of the 3770k's TDP of 77w.

The AMD cpu's that have a TDP of 220w are actually overclocked FX-8350s. If you want to compare the TDP of those chips to an intel cpu, then the intel cpu must be overclocked to the same degree.

And I already know that whole spiel about AMD cores vs Intel cores, so shove it.

Too bad not a single modern game only runs on one or two cores.
4cores or more is the standard nowadays, and with the next-gen consoles using 6-8cores, all of it will start to support 6-8 cores.

Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, Warframe and Watch_Dogs are all examples of games that utilise 8 cores (yes, all goddamn EIGHT)

I think I misunderstood you then, I think you were listing games on 2 cores and then nothing that BF4 doesn't use 8.

Sorry for that.

But they still use 4 cores, in which the 6300 smokes the Pentium.

A good question to always ask yourself is "how much time do I spend on my computer"

if the answer is "most of my time", then spending $750 on a computer is a good investment. I'd even say that you should invest more than that. If you're going to do something for most of your life, then might as well do it properly.

Ignore the anon. Yes the stress mainly goes to the GPU. I have a friend with a 290X and a Q9650 from the 775 socket and he gets roughly the same framerates as anyone else with a 290X.

The 270X is the most sweetspot GPU at the moment.
And you can get a 740 with 2GB, doesn't mean the card will actually fill up those 2GB.
You need enough power from the card to be able to utilise them.
