I'm pretty "noob" with computers and i don't know like anything about them so i need your help with this :( ty!
2013-04-24 19:20:05
gpu can be better.
2013-04-24 19:20:41
nvidia gtx 460 any better?
2013-04-24 19:23:44
video card is not so good.
2013-04-24 19:22:14
but how much fps in csgo with this specs? :o
2013-04-24 19:25:55
enough :D
my specs i7-3612, 4gb ram ddr 3, and GT 645m
my average 130-140 fps.
2013-04-24 19:28:03
ok ty
2013-04-24 19:29:10
not bad but this composition is terrible:) how much $$ you have ?

you should take i5 2500k instead of i7 imo
8 GB RAM is enough for games
this GPU is not good, take 6870, 460 if you dont have money, or better 7850 if u can.
350W u should take someting stronger and from good producer...

power supply 350W?!!!
2013-04-24 19:30:48
not enough? :D
2013-04-24 19:31:16
on my old pc from 2005, power supply was 400w. i think it's not enought for that specs.
2013-04-24 19:33:00
I had 350w on my pc about 7 years ago. I am pretty sure it is not enough. i have similar pc with the one you mention and i have 1000W. It is not necesarry, but i would recommend about 600W atleast.

it depends - good PS like "be quite!" 350W is enough for this configuration.
Mentioned CPU ~ 80W max, GPU ~ 80W rest ~100W = 260W on 12V line.

but noname PS like "take me" "Tracer" etc is not enough ( low 12V line )
2013-04-25 00:10:37
Two things i would like to change:-
1. Gpu - Take smthn in ati they are good at budget prices
ati 7770, 7850 2gb, powercolor ati 6950
2. As for smps u are running an i7 plus a gfx card, go for
coolermaster, antek or corsair and atleast 600 watt.

2013-04-24 19:38:14
For gpu buy gtx650ti boost,and for cpu if you have the money buy 3770K if not then i5 3570K,also you should really find a better psu.
2013-04-24 19:43:37
i have i5 3570K, 12gb ram and shitty nvidia 9800gtx, 250-300fps
2013-04-24 22:45:11
yeah and i have gts250,3570K,8gb ram,he is buying a new pc a 650ti boost is not expensive and quite good for a couple of years.
2013-04-24 23:06:13
yeah, im looking for new gpu also 660,670, depending on my money situation :D
2013-04-25 00:19:17
Well theres a big difference between those two,660 is decent,670 is great,660ti is currently best buy midrange gpu,whatever you do try to buy something with two fans on it(like msi twinfrozr,gigabyte,asus etc.)
2013-04-25 01:20:15
How much i will get fps with these specs in cs:go? Please give your estimate :)

Over 9000.
2013-04-25 14:30:59
If your budget is limited:
- Core i5 instead of i7
- 8 GB RAM instead of 16 GB

+ GTX 660 intead of GT 640
+ 600W PSU intead of 450
2013-04-24 22:53:13
its good for gaming man, gogo!
2013-04-24 23:26:22
640 is a major bottlneck for 1080p gaming
2013-04-25 00:00:15
Cost - 660 euros:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K /3.4GHz, 6MB, LGA 1155, BOX/
MOBO: MSI ZH77A-G41 /intel H77/
RAM: Patriot 8GB (2x4GB) 2133MHz CL11 Viper3
SSD: Intel 330 60GB (500/400MB)
HDD: Western Digital Blue 1 TB 7200rpm 64MB cache SATA600
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD7770 1GB DDR5 /128bit/ DVI/HDMI/DP
Audio: Asus Xonar DG
PSU: bequiet! PurePower L7 430W
2013-04-25 00:18:44
h77 chipset with 3570K?He couldnt overclock it,so why buy K cpu,also ssd is not necessary,better buy 7870 instead imo :D
2013-04-25 01:22:33
Ssd not necessary nowadays? drugs, drugs everywhere...
2013-04-25 01:32:45
Yeah the difference between starting up system is SOOOO CRUCIAL,see that wd blue?It is really good.

Its not just starting up. It's in every program that you open. And no one use the computer just to play cs. If you need image edit, heavy programs, play games with many loading screens the most important thing to boost that is an SSD.

never try to go full retard thinking that you are right.
2013-04-25 14:25:51
so for games ssd is more important than gpu,i guess you are right less loading time is better than higher fps,and btw its easier to add ssd after buying the whole thing.

Difference between I7 or I5 for gaming it's almost nothing. SSD give you speed. Gpu 7770 more than enough for gaming. That computer is well done-
2013-04-25 17:34:48
nigga you just went full retard.
2013-04-25 17:38:38
who was talking about difference between i7 and i5,i was talking about difference between 7770 and 7870 which is how much an 120gb ssd costs,and you should know this is the year ati8000 series and gtx700 comes out,also new consoles,so a low end gpu from previous tier wont do much.
2013-04-25 17:47:30
yeah - my bad.
But almost the same price - MSI Z77A-G41 ( OC enable ).

SSD is not necessary but it very usefull ( very fast and quiet ).
For cs go 7770 is good enought.
2013-04-25 11:32:59
Yeah but for instance ssd wont give him anything in csgo,as for a better gpu might,7770 is good enough now but what if valve start increasing hardware requirements like they did with 1.6 for the last 6 years with every patch,i recommend atleast a gtx650 ti boost.
2013-04-25 14:06:23
650ti OC price ~ 7850 1GB ... so 7850 of coz ;-)
2013-04-26 02:14:33
It beats 7850 in every test,but the price is not the same everywhere:S,check out some reviews of it.
2013-04-26 02:20:27
you dont need that much RAM,8 is fine,you need better motherboard for that processor,from saved money from ram you can afford better graphics,and you need better power supply for sure.

Change Power Supply and Video Card, the rest of the PC is fine.
2013-04-25 01:06:35
If you don't mind spending $20 more, get the 3770K. You'll be able to overclock it to great speeds, unfortunately the gpu will probably bottleneck your speeds.
2013-04-25 01:26:01
NO! Build pc dont buy a hp pc etc etc. Graphic card is catastrophic.
