Default $1300 dowlar boild

lol guiz i need a tirteen hundred dowlar build

WANTED MONITOR IN BUDGET:
Dell UltraSharp U2311H






In all seriousness, I need a 1300$, included with a 24-27" monitor. My currency is United States Dollar. It will be used for rendering, gaming, modeling, and Adobe Photoshop. I'd like a Corsair 700D if possible. And yes, I will be overclocking my CPU and my GPU. No parts are going to be used, so I need everything new.

For the nerds:
1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
Quote:
Gaming, 3D Modeling, Rendering, Video Making
2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
Quote:
$1300 USD
3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
Quote:
Obviously the United States.
4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.
Quote:
No, but I do enjoy corsair.
5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
Quote:
No.
6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.
Quote:
This thread is more specific.
7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
Quote:
Overclocking.
8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
Quote:
Sometime.
9. What resolution do you use?
Quote:
Don't have monitor yet, planning on 1920x1080 or 1920x1200.

Wait a minute... Your budget is $1300, you need to have a monitor included and you want a 700D full tower case? I will confess that they are nice but you'd be cutting yourself short on parts there... I will give it a shot though. I enjoy building budget systems (which this is quickly turning into...) I will see if I can find you a deal to make your case of choice sting a little less. I hope that newegg works for you. Be back in a few. :)

Obviously you didn't read. I pretty much explained everything, its just that you were too lazy to read it in one sentence. I said what I need, what I prefer, what its for, and if I'm going to overclock.

So if you need everything you need to drop a least the case or going cheaper on a CPU mobo combo.

If you want something decent you have to go something like that but you have to drop the case and in this price there is no tax, no shipping and no windows ( which is needed ). Yo will DEFINETLY have to increase you price range or decrease your want.

But well with what I listed here you definatle have a good computer to do what you want. You acn also try to find another retailer that might have cheaper price then newegg.

Ok, I won't go with the 700D, but I do want a similar looking case [possibly w/a window]. And one of you read, I'm gonna be doing some 3D modeling, a phenom isn't gonna cut it.

Oh and for the nerds, I used the format.

A phenom X6 is a bit over a I5 750 and near a I7 860 so it's gonna do it no problem. If you want to go intel then add a 20-30 box for a less powerfull CPU like a I5 750. We have few user here that use AMD CPU to do 3D modeling,rendering and 3D animation with these CPU and it work pretty good. I also few week ago upgrade my best friend computer with the exam same CPU and mobo to replace the dying Q6600 P5K-E he add and the result for 3D rendering 3D animation and modelisaton is nice ( working for Beenox here in Quebec City ) But well, if you absolutly want to go intel then your budget wont do it for sure. Sorry to bring you in the real world. GL
