New PC built

Post by devestator_x » Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:11 pm

For all the tech guys in here, I just assembled a new PC last night. Went about it trying to get the most for my money without spending a fortune. Here's what I got... all from TigerDirect. Started with barebones kit and added a few parts to it.

Gigabyte Micro ATX AM3+ motherboard

AMD FX 6100 chipset

Patriot Viper Xtreme 4gb DDR3 RAM

WD Blue Sata3.0 500gb HDD

Zalman CNPS7000 CPU cooler

ASUS HD770 AMD Radeon HD 7770 gfx card

LG 24x Sata DVD RW

Ultra Xblaster case

CoolerMaster 500w PSU

under $700 after shipping and taxes. It's not a hardcore gaming rig by any means, but again, Im not a hardcore gamer. This is actually a whole lot more machine than I really need, but after burning up my laptop playing Diablo 3, I wanted to make sure I had plenty of extra room performance wise that I could do whatever I wanted without breaking anything.

Just an example, my laptop currently runs at 49 degrees C at idle, 75 degrees C while watching Youtube videos, and has spiked all the way up to 95 while trying to run a 3d tech demo last week (water boils at 100 C btw). Anyone who knows computers, knows these temps are borderline nuclear and this machine should not be running anymore.

I havent played it in over 6 months, plan on reinstalling on the new system and hoping my barb is still on the servers. Heck last time I played, the auction houses were still up and running and I have no idea if they actually took them down or not. Once I beat the game on Inferno, I stopped playing.

Somehow I managed to play it and beat it on a 1.9ghz AMD A4 system... of course now that system is toast.
