I need some builds in the Mid-Range with todays current hardware. Trying to figure out a list of good parts known to work well together and capable of delivering gamer happiness.
This information will go into my Builders Guide.
for a mid end video card get the hd 5770 it has dx11 and is pretty powerful.
whats your cpu budget
I don't have a budget. Just trying to gather data on hardware parts for a mid-range gaming system.
The 5770 1GB is looking like a good Mid-Range Video card as you said, dx11 and is pretty powerful.
The CPU can't be too much, but needs to have the most power for the buck with games in mind. 180 to 300 dollars would be my guess. Anything beyond 300$ is probably less of a return in game performance. What do you think of the Intel Core i7 2.8 GHz Processor or Intel Core i7 2.66 GHz Processor. Is that too Elite for Mid-range? LGA1156 or LGA1366?
I have 2-3 mid range builds on my website which I could share but gime time to upload em(website under construction).
Have yet to upload rigs-Let alone make a java menu for dropping in components.
CPU: Intel Q9550
MOBO: Asus P5Q Deluxe
RAM: some G.skill 4-8GB (depending on user needs), 1000MHz DDR2, 5-5-5-15 (somthing like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231145)
CPU COOLER: CoolerMaster N520
CASE: CoolerMaster 690I
ODD: just some x22/x24 DVD-RW, dosen't really matter.
HDDs: x2 WD Caviar Blue (any sizes) - in a RAID0 config.
I've been looking at getting the CM690, wasn't sure if i should go with I or II. Any advise would be helpful :)
i'd get the CM690II if you have the budget for it, but in this case (mid range build), when you wouldn't need much more space for an extra GPU (cuz there might just be x2 HD5770s, if he were to CF in the future) the CM690I would be ok. the reson to go with the CM690II is for mcuh better cooling and much more practicalty, but this is a low budget build and thats why the CM690I would be ok.
That's the problem with mid-range is that you have to pick everything that has the most bang for the buck and spend a little extra to get things that greatly improve the gaming experience. The COOLER MASTER CM690 II is at or under 99$ and this is perfect for a mid-range!
i think im gonna go with the CM690II (actually have a topic about it if any of you wanna check it out, it'll help me), but its a bit to expencive in my opinion for an eniter computer that would cost you, what? 700-800$? thats mid range right?
