Hey guys, I've been lurking here for the past couple weeks trying to figure out a good build that will allow me to play any game out there and be upgradable for Vista gaming in the upcoming year. Overclocking is not a necessity for me, but I may try my hand at it sometime in the future. Here is the build that I've come up with:
I already have a monitor, speakers, mouse, and keyboard. This is my first try at doing my own build. All together, the above parts come in around $850 after shipping and rebates, which I'm very pleased with.
dont buy the raptor its to expensive and you really wont notice the performance unless you really check for load times. i would buy 2 cheap storage disk with 16 mb cache and put them in raid0. anyways thats what i did and my load times are very low.
