I am wanting to build my own custom computer, i'm new to building computers and need some direction on building a gaming rig. I'm wanting to play games like skyrim and farcry 3 on max settings, i'm also wanting to install graphical mods to skyrim to make it look more realistic, i don't know if this is possible with only a $1500 budget.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks
P.S I'm from the USA, and i'm wanting to get a new computer because i want to get into pc gaming i plan on using it quite often (about six times a week for 2-5 hours a day) the computer i currently have is a laptop made in like 2005, and i'm wanting a desktop so i can upgrade if need be. And i do plan to buy a monitor nothing extreme just a 17 inch monitor.
Also i don't plan on buying within the next couple of weeks i'm actually going to be buying the computer some time in mid-early summer,But i would still like some guidance on what parts to get now so i have everything ready to order in the summer.
Would easily max out any game at 1440p, and would destroy any game at 1080p. Try out overclocking, its a good way to add ALOT of performance in the tradeoff for power or heat. The power supply I selected will easily take care of the two 7950's.
Hey, the first thing is location. $1500 USD (That is an assumption) goes a long ways in the US (Also an assumption), but not as far in places like India (where parts simply cost more), or Canada (again, costs are not the same). I don't assume $1500 includes taxes and shipping, though I can easily be wrong, I am often wrong.
I want to say this, the build below was thrown together in only minutes. There are better combinations out there.
The build relies on the cooler which comes with the CPU. If you want to overclock, then you'd want to get an after market cooler. If you don't want to, then there is no point in getting a K series CPU, which is included. Also important is that PSUs are my weak point. I choose the one I did because it allows for crossfire in the future, which might not interest you. The motherboard should also support crossfire. Personally, I don't bother with SSDs, but I understand why people want them. Also, 3TB of storage might be overkill for you, but if you run out, well, I'd be surprised. I also don't bother with DVD drives, but I put one in. You can get a non GHz GPU, or an NVIDIA alternative to save money. I prefer getting all my parts from the same store, but that might not bother you.
