Need help with first build, 1100$ range including monitor
Approximate Purchase Date: Before June Budget Range: About 1100$ System Usage from Most to Least Important: Primarily Gaming, some movies Are you buying a monitor: Yes Do you need to buy OS: Yes Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon or newegg Location: CA, United States Overclocking: Maybe (not initially, maybe after I get more comfortable with it) SLI or Crossfire: probrably not
Additional Comments: First Build, no prior experience to pc building. Primarily plan to play a heavily modded Skyrim with high settings and good fps. Also want to play Shogun 2 on high settings as well as Rome 2 when it is released, maybe BF3 also. It seems like a lot of people are claiming that the video card for modded skyrim should be 3-4gb as opposed to the cheaper 2gb ones??
Looks great, thanks, one more question though. Do you think it is worth it to get a cheap 64gb ssd and maybe pair it with a 1tb hd or just hold off until I can get a better ssd?
64gb is pretty small. If you can wait, it would be much better to wait until you have a bit more money for a 128gb SSD. The price difference between the 64 and 128 is pretty small considering the 128 is double the size.
