I'm going to purchase some PC parts in the next week or two.
And I was wondering which parts would be best for:
Gaming and video-editing for Youtube.
I won't be needing:
Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Headset, Operating System
I have a budget of $1000 (more or less).
I am currently waiting for the release of the AMD R9 290 non-reference to come out,
because I'm very interested in the Mantle idea. It would be great if I could keep playing all games on 1080p for the next 6 years or so (If Mantle would be that powerful :0)
But I'm also interested in Nvidia Shadowplay because it would let me record a ton of footage without taking up too much space like Fraps does.
I also wonder if it would be better to get an all-AMD system because of their hardware being in the Next-Gen consoles. And the FX-8320 is pretty cheap and has those 8 cores that might be essential for Next-Gen games like Battlefield 4.
With the release of Battlefront 3 in 2015 by DICE in mind, I would like a PC that could handle that game (should be as intensive as Battlefield 4 because they have the same engine: Frostbyte 3)
Is it possible to fit in an 120/128 GB SSD instead of an HDD? If so I'll buy a 1TB HDD a week after the other components).
Hope you guys know a good configuration,
I'll be using this PC a lot once I build it (haven't played any new games this year because I was saving up)
P.S. Yes I will also play Skyrim, I want to experience the difference between PC and Xbox 360 with that AWESOME game Anyone else also hyped for Battlefront 3 ?!
Thanks for the suggestions, but after collecting some more than $1000 I went the Intel way
for the single core performance, and the NVidia way for the free games and the better cooler compared
to AMD's high end cards. I hope I didn't make a big mistake, but it's AMD's fault for not showing the
efficiency Mantle has to offer on time. Also think it's taking them too long to make 'dem non-reference coolers'
for the R9 290(X)
