Hello, im setting my new gaming pc and im pretty sure of some of the choices ive made, but not too sure about the motherboard, the PSU and the processor that will suit best for me. im going to give you a list of what ive been considering for my new gaming rig, and want you to tell me wich one is the best choice.
basically i want my pc for lot of multitasking, and gaming like call of duty, counter strike, left 4 dead, crysis, portal, warcraft.
i can spend about 700$ to buy online from my country, and im only going to buy with this 700$:
the other components ill buy them locally, like case, monitor, and stuff.
well the rig ive made is thiis
processor Intel quad-core q6600 or AMD Phenom quead-core 9950
gpu EVGA Nvidia GTX260 896MB or Radeon HD 4850 512MB
i dont know wich brand of memory to choose. i do know i want 4GB DDR2, im looking here for the best price/performance range out there, preferibly memory from OCZ, g skill, or corsair, so i leave this one up to recommendation.
im totally lost in here, i dont know wich motherboard to choose, im looking for a price/performance product here aswell. i would like recommendations in here about mobos to support each of the components i mentioned before, lets say the q6600, the evga gtx260, and ocz ddr2 memory. im open in here, but if you can recommend me a ASUS mobo that would be perfect, altough if you think a gigabyte mobo will do it better, dont hesitate to tell me. im really looking for to try an asus mobo since ive heard theyre awesome. also if theres a mobo with wifi card integrated would be perfect, i dont like usb wifi sticks.
ive been reading great stuff about corsair and OCZ psu's, im also really looking forward to try one of these. you think a 750 watts psu be enough?
looking here for two 500GB disks or one 100GB for windows and linux, and a 1TB one for my data. i also want to know if buying a velociraptor 10.000rpm of about 60gb harddrive just for my operative systems to run faster will be a waste of money? since maybe the gaining performance wont woth it.
fans and coolers
wich brand and wich one will do the job to keep it nice and cool. price/performance apreciated here aswell.
also if you want to recommend me a cool case to fit all this .
Personally i'd go with the Q6600, single socket P45, GTX260 or the GTX260/216, any of the 3 power supplies listed, any 2x2 GB DDR2 1.8v RAM and the western Digital 640GB hard drive. I would not spend the extra money on the velociraptor. I like Scythe fans, but more for the quiet then anything else.
nice. im glad i posted here, now im getting a more clear picture of what i can get. thanks a lot, if theres anyone else with recommendations please post them, they would be as helpful as the ones from previous users . thanks
