I want to build a gaming rig to outlast the next generation of consoles.
I am in India so shipping from US sites/stores is not an option.
Approximate Purchase Date: July 13, 2013 - Can wait 1 month if something great is on the horizon.
Budget Range: $800 - $900
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Photo-editing, Watching Movies, Surfing
Are you buying a monitor: Yes / No No.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: India -
Location: City, State/Region, Country - Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
Overclocking: Yes / No / Maybe Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1440 x 900 - Current
1920 x 1080 or 1920 x 1200 - In October 2013
Additional Comments: Looks don't matter. Performance at justified price does.
As PS4 and XBOX One 8-cored with GPU ~ HD 7870, need something to play games at High Settings for next 3 years.
GTX 760 or HD 7950 with boost? (3 GB 7950 - More Futureproof)
FX-8350 (8 Cores - More Futureproof?)
Seasonic s12ii 620 watts or Corsair TX 650 V2?
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR3 1600
Corsair 300R or HAF 912 Combat?
Softwares - Photoshop, GIMP, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Skyrim, Hitman - Absolution, Tomb Raider, NFS Most Wanted, COD, and Half Life 3 [/i]
And Most Importantlre You Upgrading: Upgrading from 6 year old working Core 2 Duo E6550/8800 GTS PC
Which would be best for my build? (HD 7950 + CM Hyper 212 Evo + Moderate Overclocking)
1. FX 8350 + Asrock 990FX Extreme 4 (12800 + 11025 = 23825)
2. FX 8350 + Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (12800 + 11232 = 24032)
3. Intel Core i5 3570k + Asrock Z77 Pro 4 (15300 + 8925 = 24225)
4. Intel Core i5 3570k + Asrock Z77 Pro 3 (15300 + 7500 = 22800)
Never heard of bitfenix.
Is Bitfenix Shinobi as good as 300R or HAF 912 Combat?
