Can you give us an Idea of what you want to do with it?
What size case?
What features are you going to want? ie. SLI, overclocking, X fire,

Also were do you live?

Full Tower probably with good cooling system. Must have space for future Upgrades(Like cards 680/690 or later cards)
Sli and crossfire has many problems so i will avoid it...

The Processor should be best preferably intel(not extreme edition)
And MOBO with good on-board memory.

Onboard memory? Do you mean RAM? Should that be in the budget as well? And again, in which country do you live? Is there a prefered store? So we know what kind of prices we're talking. :)

What kind of applications are you trying to run?

Thread heavy applications, such as CAD and Photo/Video Editing?

Or, are you looking to game?

If your looking to do thread heavy applications I'd go for a i7-3820 (4core) (LGA 2011) with a decent ASUS motherboard and 4x4GB's of Memory.

Newegg Prices:
$299 - i7-3820
$369 - ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard
$129 - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
TOTAL = $797

That would be a the best setup for $800, but you could easily go for a lower end ASUS motherboard, or even a different brand, like AsRock to save some money and the performance would be exactly the same.

If your into gaming, and not thread heavy applications, definitly go for a Z77 setup as its alot cheaper and will perform exactly the same as the LGA2011 (X79) hardware in terms of gaming.

For this, I would recommend:

$229 - i5-3570k
$277 - ASUS Z77 Deluxe (LGA 1155)
$129 - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB)
TOTAL = $635

(ALL USD)

Goodluck, hope this helps :D

Personally I would not go ASUS $277 is a bit much. Get a $180 Gigabyte Z77 or $120 ARock Z77 and go ahead and figure in a new GPU also. That 9600GT has to go

Yeah, like I said. Don't stick with the Deluxe Motherboard unless you like to spend money :p Was just working to the budget.

I personally use the AsRock P67 Extreme 7 and have been very impressed with the reliability, stability and the features of the board.

Definitely look at AsRock if your looking for bang for buck.

@Razor

Watch your hard drive! May want to check to see if it's SATA or IDE. Most (95%) of the new boards no longer have IDE, I would set aside some funding for a new one.

I meant integrated graphics...
I live in india...
Just so u mentioned reminded me that my ddr2 ram will not work on ddr3 slot of new mobo .... so i can increase my budget to about $900.

Thanks.....

Even with $100 more dollars that wouldn't change my opinion, if your really looking to spend so much you could get a i7 - 3930k 6 core processor and a cheaper motherboard.

Yeah, like I said. Don't stick with the Deluxe Motherboard unless you like to spend money :p Was just working to the budget.
Invest extra money where you think you'll need it. The benefit of getting a good motherboard is the simple fact that it drives everything in your machine, same with the PSU. Those are the two things I wouldn't skimp on. I spent a lot of money on my P9X79 Deluxe and I haven't regretted it one bit. It has been the most solid motherboard I've ever used.

With all of that said, just invest money where you're going to need it and pick out the bare necessities, then start improving parts with the remaining money you have left (before buying it all that is.) That way you know what you need and you can shift money to things where it will be beneficial. A better motherboard is likely to have more power phases and stronger VRMs as well, so if overclocking will be a factor second guess your motherboard option until you find exactly what you want or need.

I got the P9X79 Deluxe, one of the reasons was the 16 + 2 + 2 power phases, the others were the BIOS, the number of features, and how all the expansion slots are PCI-E. I also got the 3820 because it was the only i7 that didn't cost 600 USD or more that supported VT-d and could overclock fairly well. (Since a lot of people wonder why I didn't wait for IVB or just go with SB.)

All in all, I guess the real thing I want you to take away from this post is to build the machine for what you need, not because parts are fast. Leave improvements until after you determine what you need, then go on to what you want.

So i should go for good costly processor and cheaper mobo??
Will it then support future upgrades??
Not the CPU if you go with 1155. 2011 still has IVB-E coming though.

$369 - ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard
I'm skeptical about the deluxe for this budget, a Pro might be a better option. You certainly won't regret the Deluxe if you take that option though. Even ask Cadaveca since he reviewed the board some time ago and gave it high praise.

The X79 platform (LGA 2011) will support the next generation i7 Ivy Bridge E processors (might not be a worthwhile upgrade, as its just a die shrink of the current Sandy Bridge E processors.

As for the Z77 (LGA 1155), the next generation CPU's for the mid range will not be compatible with the older Z77 motherboards (I would expect).

But in terms of futureproof, instead of future upgrades you will get a long period of use out of the current processors, they are powerful enough, depending on your use.

AND in saying that, you still haven't answered the question: What is the purpose of the computer? It is a crucial point when it comes to deciding what hardware to pick. As I stated in my previous post, you can save yourself a lot of money if your just going to be playing games. The LGA 2011 hardware is aimed towards CPU heavy programs such as AutoCAD, Video/Image Processing, NOT GAMING.

My 3820 does extremely well for gaming and both of my 6870s have a full 16 lanes each (not that is makes much difference for my cards, but someone with two 7970s, 7990, 680, or 690 might like that). X79 is an enthusiast level platform, not one that strictly focuses on CPU heavy tasks. That is what Xeons are for. The 3820 also has a little more cache than its SB/IVB counter parts which can sometimes help speed. For gaming alone though, the 3820 does just as well as the 2600k, 2700k, and 3770k while offering more options for multi-gpu solutions.

You may want 2011 just for the 8-dimm slots. Databases and programming always like the extra memory and cores if you're a fan of multi-processing and multi-threading. If you don't mind me asking, is this also for college, are you exploring a hobby, or are you using these applications professionally. If virtual machines are a possibility, then hands down go with SB-E, regardless of processor.

drop the VGA, get a better board, since he wants to still use 9600GT.


For those looking to keep your PC for a while, SKT2011 is hte way to go. 1155 will be discontinued when Haswell launches, but SKT2011 still has IVB-E to come.

I'd vote for 3820 like Aquinus says. Power draw is a bit higher, but being able to upgrade to a 6-core IVB-E, or maybe an 8-core if they decide to make those, would be great. Get a quad with HT now with 16 GB of ram, upgrade in teh future to IVB-E and 32-64GB, and at that time, make a ram drive.


I've suggest perhaps the ASRock Fatal1ty Champion board for a gamer. FOr a case, Antec P280 is a good choice...mine works well, and can be foudn on sale for less than $100.

the reason i picked this board is because he stated he won't use CFX/Sli so that saves some money and i think the HD 7850 would be great as he will be gaming too :D

Yes, there is also zero room for upgrading the CPU and you're short 4 DIMMs and two channels, PCI-E benefits aside. I also don't believe he is planning on wanting or needing integrated graphics.

I would go for this build it will be a good one I'm not for sure on the computer case I usually leave that up to the person what ever they like the looks of.
You may like the Corsair 800D case
Look for these.


I then would get these to finish off your build
