hey everyone, through all suggestions and everything i have got from the people on this forum,
i have a revised and i believe a great build for a computer.
To reiterate my old threads, this computer will be for gaming, internet surfing, and music.
Here are the list of the parts:
Video card: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
I already have a monitor, a 24" 1080p monitor, and the case is a cooler master haf (so air flow is not a problem)
+ i got a dvd-rom and burner already
All extra parts i will buy later, for the people who looked up the specs of these parts and saw that the processor's FSB is not rated for the motherboard, i have researched it, and that board will push it to 1333fsb, essentially overclocking it to 3ghz anyway.
Also, i want this computer to last a good few years without turning into a crap machine, i figure everything is good, but when the graphics card starts to not be able to push out the newer games, i will either crossfire it, or buy a new card down the road.
-games i will be playing-
fall out 3
My question for anyone reading this thread is.
1: Is this a really nice build for only 800$ (US) ?
2: Will it last a few years? (with some adjustments like a video card).
3: I had this build isntead of a i7 for a reason, most sites show the i7 is more powerful,
But for the price, is a waste. Unless your a enthusiast, you should not HAVE to go to a i7
This is just for the people who are goin to flame me for not going i7. lol
Although, if i build a i7 computer, when they come out with more i7s i could just upgrade to a newer processor while keeping my memory, motherboard, and even my heat sink? Thus justifying buying one now for only 100-200 more than a quad build
