Im about to build a new computer for gaming/media. I work in retail so I have access to Intels bundle of E6300 and the Intel Board DG965WHMKR and Vista ultimate for only $220. I dont plan on SLI since I have heard it is waste of money for now...and tight on money. Here is what I have roughly planned out, please give suggestions and explain why.
What advantages would getting new MOBO other than overclockking and SLI?? My biggest debate is for the Video card..is DX10 gonna give me crap or will update be fine..or should i wait til more video cards with direct x10 are availabe OR penny pinch and get 8800 GTS..
Did I read that right? A 32 inch LCD? Didn't think you could penny pinch and buy a 32" monitor.
Seriously, if money is a concern... That monitor will be expensive.
I agree about SLI. The 7950GT should last you a while, and there shouldn't be any issues with dx10. If you wanna save some more money, drop down to the X1950Pro. Doubt you'd notice the difference, and it saves the hard earned moolah.
Tv is already boughten... got it for 527....thats why i have to penny pinch. If the games to look like crap i can always take it back. But as for the build how does it look? Also should i use RAID if so what kind? im not too familiar with it.
monitor already looks fine at native res. as PC monitor havent played any real games on it tho...
