|I'm looking to replace my five-year-old HP Pavilion Laptop. I'm techno-illiterate, but I still have an idea of what I want in my machine. A colleague of mine helped me assemble the following list of components for building the best Gaming/3d Rendering PC that my $800 budget will allow: |
>>Gigabyte Z87 LGA 1150 CrossFireX HDMI DVI ATX Motherboard (GA-Z87-D3HP)
>>Intel Core i5-4670K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ 6 MB Cache - BX80646I54670K
>>EVGA EVGA GeForce GTX 750Ti Superclock w/G-SYNC Support 2GB GDDR5 128bit, Dual-Link DVI-I, HDMI, DP 1.2 Graphics (02G-P4-3753-KR) Graphics Cards 02G-P4-3753-KR
>>Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply
>>Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit for Core i3, i5, i7 and Platforms SDRAM CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
>>WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX
I trust his judgement, but I still want a second opinion. Is he right, or are there better cost/performance deals to be had? This is a big deal to me. I consider $800 to be mad money. I don't want to drop it on just anything. This list is slightly over budget. It is excusable if unavoidable, but if there are lower prices on similar components, I would appreciate any leads.
