    Tips and Information

[Automatically do not include products that have many poor reviews]
[some baseline requirements : Video better or same as 450gts]
[Allows for most 1 year old games to run at full settings easily
And Will run new games with slightly lower settings]

•Added Prices on Detailed breakdowns
•Personal findings. Readyboost usb drives dramatically speed up boot time & PC responsiveness, even with Huge RAM blocks.
Finding a decent USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 Flash drive requires research of reviews. As the USB 3.0 drives rarely perform as fast or faster than USB 2.0 drives.
•Windows 8 benchmarks from professionals show slight decrease of fps across many games, however I found a 15 fps increase on my machine in many games.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

$125.99 GTX 650 Superclocked – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 3.0 – 1813 G3d – Link

For AMD Motherboards (PCIx16 2.0 cards)
[This video card maybe used in a pci x16 3.0 slot with no increased capabilites]
[Recommendation: Use a pci x16 3.0 card in a pci x16 slot]

$89.99 GTS 450 – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1520 G3d Link
$134.32 GTX 550 Ti – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1912 G3d Link

-109.90 is used in Total prices per recommendation to use PCIx16 3.0 card instead of a 2.0.

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.

Final DIY Combo Post

I have chosen to abandon this article.

However, if you would like to have it ran for me sometime in the future. I have no problems doing a write up for that occasion.

Email: anaheimofmanheim@gmail.com


29th Weekly ‘Anaheim – Cheap’ DIY Desktop Combos.

(shopping sources: Tigerdirect.com, Newegg.com)
***I also recommend cross-shopping ebay, amazon and the sales of these sites.***

•Note: Intel’s 4th generation CPUs were released recently. Yet the cost of the motherboards start at 70.
Until those boards drop in price you will not see them in these combos.

•Maintaining FM2 AMD builds & FM2 CPU/GPU builds.

Note: The 400W PSU Non-Gaming case may suffice for a gaming build. However without PSU benchmark and verification its not definite.

    Tips and Information

[Automatically do not include products that have many poor reviews]
[some baseline requirements : Video better or same as 450gts]
[Allows for most 1 year old games to run at full settings easily
And Will run new games with slightly lower settings]

•Added Prices on Detailed breakdowns
•Personal findings. Readyboost usb drives dramatically speed up boot time & PC responsiveness, even with Huge RAM blocks.
Finding a decent USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 Flash drive requires research of reviews. As the USB 3.0 drives rarely perform as fast or faster than USB 2.0 drives.
•Windows 8 benchmarks from professionals show slight decrease of fps across many games, however I found a 15 fps increase on my machine in many games.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.

***I also recommend cross-shopping ebay, amazon and the sales of these sites.***

•Note: Intel’s 4th generation CPUs were released recently. Yet the cost of the motherboards start at 70.
Until those boards drop in price you will not see them in these combos.
•Dropped HDD size to 250GB
•Still working on template link issues ……….
•Maintaining FM2 AMD builds & FM2 CPU/GPU builds.

    Tips and Information

[Automatically do not include products that have many poor reviews]
[some baseline requirements : Video better or same as 450gts]
[Allows for most 1 year old games to run at full settings easily
And Will run new games with slightly lower settings]

•Added Prices on Detailed breakdowns
•Personal findings. Readyboost usb drives dramatically speed up boot time & PC responsiveness, even with Huge RAM blocks.
Finding a decent USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 Flash drive requires research of reviews. As the USB 3.0 drives rarely perform as fast or faster than USB 2.0 drives.
•Windows 8 benchmarks from professionals show slight decrease of fps across many games, however I found a 15 fps increase on my machine in many games.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

$129.99 GTX 650 Superclocked – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 3.0 – 1813 G3d – http://bit.ly/14vcBwe

For AMD Motherboards (PCIx16 2.0 cards)
[This video card maybe used in a pci x16 3.0 slot with no increased capabilites]
[Recommendation: Use a pci x16 3.0 card in a pci x16 slot]

$89.99 GTS 450 – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1520 G3d http://bit.ly/XBEYTM
$119.99 GTX 550 Ti – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1912 G3d http://bit.ly/171wgX5

-109.99 is used in Total prices per recommendation to use PCIx16 3.0 card instead of a 2.0.

    Tips and Information

[Automatically do not include products that have many poor reviews]
[some baseline requirements : Video better or same as 450gts]
[Allows for most 1 year old games to run at full settings easily
And Will run new games with slightly lower settings]

•Added Prices on Detailed breakdowns
•Personal findings. Readyboost usb drives dramatically speed up boot time & PC responsiveness, even with Huge RAM blocks.
Finding a decent USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 Flash drive requires research of reviews. As the USB 3.0 drives rarely perform as fast or faster than USB 2.0 drives.
•Windows 8 benchmarks from professionals show slight decrease of fps across many games, however I found a 15 fps increase on my machine in many games.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

$129.99 GTX 650 Superclocked – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 3.0 – 1813 G3d – http://bit.ly/14vcBwe

For AMD Motherboards (PCIx16 2.0 cards)
[This video card maybe used in a pci x16 3.0 slot with no increased capabilites]
[Recommendation: Use a pci x16 3.0 card in a pci x16 slot]

$89.99 GTS 450 – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1520 G3d http://bit.ly/XBEYTM
$119.99 GTX 550 Ti – 1GB GDDR5 – PCIx16 2.0 – 1912 G3d http://bit.ly/171wgX5

-109.99 is used in Total prices per recommendation to use PCIx16 3.0 card instead of a 2.0.

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.

25th Weekly ‘Anaheim – Cheap’ DIY Desktop Combos.

My post template broke , will fix next week.

(shopping sources: Tigerdirect.com, Newegg.com)
***I also recommend cross-shopping ebay, amazon and the sales of these sites.***

•Note: Intel’s 4th generation CPUs were released recently. Yet the cost of the motherboards start at 70.
Until those boards drop in price you will not see them in these combos.
***Going camping this weekend, required a day early post***
•Next week I am adding a low level AMD gaming desktop.

Note: The 400W PSU Non-Gaming case may suffice for a gaming build. However without PSU benchmark and verification its not definite.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.

24th Weekly ‘Anaheim – Cheap’ DIY Desktop Combos.

(shopping sources: Tigerdirect.com, Newegg.com)
***I also recommend cross-shopping ebay, amazon and the sales of these sites.***

•Note: Intel’s 4th generation CPUs were released recently. Yet the cost of the motherboards start at 70.
Until those boards drop in price you will not see them in these combos.
•This week a PCI-x16 2.0 GTX 460 card is going for 79.99 on Tigerdirect – Could make for a decent low level gaming rig.

    Video Tip

*Intel does not make any Dual-core CPU’s that support PCI express 3.0.*
Recommendation: Use a PCI express 3.0 video card in a 2.0 or 3.0 slot,
and deal with the performance loss due to the CPU limitation.

The PCI express 3.0 video cards run for the same price or less than the PCI express 2.0
cards that do less even with the limitation.33

“PCI x16 3.0 card maybe used in a pci x16 2.0 slot or with non-pci3.0 compliant cpu with reduced capabilites.”

(Personal Recommendation to surpass the dual core and PCI 3.0 limitiation – get Unlocked and O.C. the Videocard)

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.

***I also recommend cross-shopping ebay, amazon and the sales of these sites.***

•Note: Intel’s 4th generation CPUs were released recently. Yet the cost of the motherboards start at 70.
Until those boards drop in price you will not see them in these combos.

    *Choosing between AMD and Intel

Typically AMD cpus require more full load power than Intel.
Computers that will be running @100% cpu load, choosing Intel may save on power cost.

The AMD motherboards that support PCI 3.0 video cards are currently pricey.
PCI 3.0 video cards also use less power than a PCI 2.0, while doing more.

When purchasing a integrated video gpu on a CPU the AMD versions perform much more
at the expess of electrical power. It is possible to play some games like Skyrim with low fps on
integrated AMD gpus while intel integrated gpus won’t allow playable fps.

If browsing the web with high speed scrolling, online video content, flash, and multiple tabs is required
a Non-gaming pc with an AMD integrated GPU will likely perform better than its intel counterpart.

Cross Referencing CPUs onhttp://www.cpubenchmark.net/ is also a good idea.
