Parts Preferences: Best long lasting, reliable brand. Thats not going to mess up any time soon. Something like a Toyota for instance.
Overclocking: Maybe, I hear this decreases computer life expectancy.
SLI or Crossfire: SLI means single graphics card and Crossfire means running two right? One sounds safer so ill go with SLI
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200, but aren't i buying a new monitor? What's the best one for games to run smooth?
Additional Comments: Its obvious I'm novice and cannot do this without some pro opinions. I would like to make a gaming system that can run most games on max-graphics and get the best possible fps, but i also like that crazy feel you get when you look around at the environment in an MMO and it looks amazing.
And Most Importantly, Games like Planet Side 2 and bf4 are causing lag spikes and a below standard 15 or 20 fps, if im not standing in the middle of a battle. Other games like Minecraft & space engineers have to be played with caution. I cant go into heavily populated servers or build large scale space ships to my preference. Arma2 is just unacceptable on 20 fps on the lowest graphics settings & i have not even had a chance to enjoy Arma3 since it came out. Cant play a game as big as that with only 500m view distance and 10fps.
Is that a good enough reason? Lol I speak as if my beast hasn't served me well over the 4 years she's lived. I love her but i need to change, cant take this any more.
