Price

Notes

Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 Six-Core

Newegg.com

$579.99

This is Intel's newest Hex or 6 core CPU.  We recommend a 6 core CPU with an eye to the future.  Most current games don't use more than 2 cores, so with this processor, the other 4 cores will be dormant in your games.  In the next year games will begin appearing that can use the extra cores. There are lots of current programs that can use all 6 cores.  If you do video editing, video conversion or mp3 conversion, the programs you currently use, would probably love having 6 cores to operate on.  There are faster CPUs in this line, but keep in mind this CPU has a lot of overclocking potential.  You can overclock this much cheaper model to be just as fast as the other models.

alt CPU Coolers - The Intel CPU above does not come with a CPU cooler.

CORSAIR H90  High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Newegg.com $79.99 This is water cooler for your CPU.  It's mounts where you cases rear 120mm fan goes.  As long as your case has a spot for a 120mm fan this cooler will work for you.

Newegg.com

$49.99

 

Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

Newegg.com

$8.99

If you are going to use one of the 3rd party CPU coolers above you should include this thermal compound in your purchase.  This provides the best possible seal between the CPU and the cooler.  This will greatly improve the heat transfer, keeping the CPU as cool as possible.

Notes

AMD FX-9590 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ Eight-Core

Newegg.com


$339.99

If you are an AMD fan and want a 8 Core CPU, this is it. AMD FX-9590 is AMD's top of the line 8 Core CPU.  Its clock speed is faster than the Intel's, but the performance lags behind.  Intel is still making the most efficient CPU.

alt CPU Coolers - These are optional.  The AMD CPU above comes with a cooler.  The coolers below will improve on the cooling of the CPU.

CORSAIR H90  High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Newegg.com $79.99 This is water cooler for your CPU.  It mounts where you cases rear 120mm fan goes.  As long as your case has a spot for a 120mm fan this cooler will work for you.

ZALMAN CNPS9500A LED 90mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler

Newegg.com

$42.99

This has been a favorite CPU cooler for a few years now.  The reasons for this are that it cools very well and the fan doesn't make much noise.  It's a great combination.  It doesn't hurt that it looks really cool.

Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound 

Newegg.com

$8.99

If you are going to use one of the 3rd party CPU coolers above you should include this thermal compound in your purchase.  This provides the best possible seal between the CPU and the cooler.  This will greatly improve the heat transfer, keeping the CPU as cool as possible.

Notes

Western Digital WD Black 7200RPM 1TB 3.5" SATA 6.0Gb/s

Newegg.com

$89.99

We've all had good and bad experiences with hard drives failing and we might individually prefer one maker over another.  Regardless, if you have important data, get two of these so you can set up an automatic backup of your most important files.  That way if a drive fails you still have your data on the other.

See the hard drive component video lesson for features and specification to look for in a hard drive.

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" SATA 6.0Gb/s

Newegg.com

$64.99

You might consider getting 2 of these.  One for your operating system and regular programs and one just for your games and as a backup drive for your important data.

It has 2, 120mm fans.  Power Supply Not Included.

Corsair Obsidian 550D

Newegg.com

$139.99

This is the same case we used in the 2014 Home PC Builder videos.  It is extremely quiet, has great cable management  and cools very well.  Power Supply Not Included.

See the case and power supply video lesson for features and specifications to look for in a custom computer case. 

Corsair HX750 750W Power Supply modular

Newegg.com

$139.99

This PSU has about the same features and specs of the Antec PSU above. See the case and power supply video lesson for features and specifications to look for in a power supply. 

Corsair HX 850W ATX 12V v.2.3 Modular 

Newegg.com

$169.99

This PSU has 850W of power.  It also is a modular design.  This means all of the cables can be removed from the PSU.  The advantage of this is that you wont have a bunch of unused cables to tuck away inside your case.  You only attach the cables you need for your hardware.

Notes

Antec 761345-75120-9 120mm 3-Speed Case Cooling Fan

Newegg.com

$11.99

The cases we recommend above already have fans but there are spots to add more. This Antec 120mm cooler is very quiet, which will help keep down the noise level of your computer.  It has 3 speed settings and even the fastest is still very quiet at 30dB.

Notes

Creative Sound Blaster Z

Newegg.com

$104.99

The sound built into the motherboard is very good.   Some people can hear a difference when using a separate sound card.  The input source and output, either head phones or speakers make a difference as well.  I would try using the onboard sound first and if the sound isn't up your standards then get a separate sound card.

For a PCI computer sound card comparison see the computer sound card component video lesson For more on the Network card component see the Modem and Network card component video lesson.

 

The motherboard includes a network adapter so you don't need to buy a separate add on card.

ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms (GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor

Newegg.com

$169.99

This monitor is a little on the pricey side because of its an IPS panel.  If you need excellent quality color it is worth the extra cost.  This is the same monitor we recommend for the $800, $1200 and $1800 Computers.

Testimonials

"I just built my very first PC and I could not have done it without your tutorial.  I learned so much about what to do and not do, what to look for and what to avoid.
Your tutorial is very thorough, precise, detailed and easy to understand.
My PC is up and running very well and it is all thanks to your video. 

Check out the computer I built!
Thanks again!
