I'm updating my system gaming system and would love your input.
I'm in Australia and my price range is about 1400AU (about 1300USD). I can stretch by about 50 dollars if necessary. I'm doing most of my purchasing from http://www.pccasegear.com so availability there is strongly preferred but not necessary.
The system will replace my current ageing system which will mostly be used for the latest and greatest gaming, so future proofing for another 4+ years would be fantastic.
I plan to keep most of my peripherals from the old system, including the 2 monitors I'm currently running.
So, onwards to the build (In AUD):
Corsair CMX8GX3M2B1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 $89.00
Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Retail Box $189.00
Antec Three Hundred Two AB Case $85.00
Intel Core i5 4670 $249.00
ASRock Z87-PRO4 Motherboard $145.00
Antec High Current Gamer 620W Modular HCG-620M $115.00
MSI GeForce GTX 770 Gaming Edition 2GB $499.00
A few additional notes:
I am completely unconcerned with case aesthetics.
Is there any reason to go an i7 over an i5? Is it worth the extra cost?
I don't know if I really need a $145 motherboard.
I am bringing the HDD over from my old system.
Thankyou in advance for your time, you are a wonderful person.
