Hello to everyone. This is my first time building a gaming rig. Any comments or suggestions to what i have to change to play all the current games and upcoming games in Ultra High Settings is welcome. I also plan to overclock. I need help choosing a monitor and a speaker, I'll mostly be playing games so I need atleast a 1920 x 1080 resolution 23" monitor and a 5.1 surround sound speaker. Also do i need a ups/avr? If so, what brand, voltages, VA or watt do i need? I'm not good at electronics.
Here's what I came up so far:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Intel 335 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk and Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Gunmetal/Black) ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast 850W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Lite-On iHOS104-08 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Drive Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional (OEM) (64-bit) UPS/AVR: ???? Monitor: ???? Speaker: ????
Oh yea.. I live in the Philippines so I will just look for parts in stores near my area. My budget is around 100,000 PHP or equivalent to 2,200 USD.
these headphones are very good for gaming, and when used in a good audio set up, have an amazing sound stage. If you are used to playing on bad audio set ups, it will feel like cheating when hearing footsteps behind you at super precise angles when using artificial surround sound.
as for monitors,
I am pretty sure the best priced monitor in north america (where i live) wont be the best in the Philippines. There are just so many different brands and companies making monitors that basically all do the same thing. Just pick whatever you feel suits your needs and is a good price.
I would not be the person to say something about ups/avr options.
