So, guys here i am, ready to venture into the unknown of compiling a gaming pc on my own..... strike that, with your help guys. I would appreciate any assistance. Below you can see all the info that I can provide for you to advise on the proper specs for what i`m looking for.
Approximate Purchase Date: August 2013
Budget Range: around 700-800 USD
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, video/picture editing, surfing the internet, watching movies
RAM: I`d love to have around 16GB... I suppose windows 64bit can support that right?
Overclocking: not a priority
Parts I DO NOT need to buy: monitor (have a 19 & a 26 inch monitor standby), keyboard/mouse, case (have one), optical drive (have), network card (motherboard must have one), O/S
SLI or Crossfire: options are open, but for my limited bugdet probably not right?
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: any as long as they can deliver to Denmark and have affordable pricing
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Parts Preferences and other comments:
I would prefer an INTEL, but i`m not fixed on that - i`m more into the best my limited money can buy. If AMD does it better at the same price, then why not?
Possibly an SSD drive for main drive? - not a necessity thought.
I would love if the motherboard can support RAID...
Also i would love if the GPU can support 2 monitors which I plan to plug in. Can the graphics card be used, at the same time with the motherboard GPU (if there`s such) on two monitors ??? does this impair CPU speed and performance?
Games that i`m running or planning to run: Rome Total War 2, Paradox games (EU4, HOI3, CK2 etc etc), Starcraft 2, Supreme Commander, Supreme Ruler
I dont need to have all of the games at max detail... I`m a reasonable guy
Programms that i`m using or planning to use: Adobe PremierPro/Photoshop, Corel VideoStudio, video editing, picture editing programs etc etc etc.
