im looking to get a new pc soon and need some advice and feedback, heres what i've got so far.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within two weeks (hopefully) BUDGET RANGE: $2800 AUD roughly $2900 AUD absolute maximum.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (Crysis, Crysis Warhead and Wars, COD4 Both Company of Heroes, S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of Chernobyl, and general FPS games.), Browsing the net, listening to music, downloading, movies and general office use (word processing i.e Homework)
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speaker, OS and HDD.
OVERCLOCKING: Yes but i have no experience in this. SLI: Yes
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Big thing is that i live in Australia and things are a bit more expensive over here, so i am unable to use newegg (very pissed off about) also i have been searching for these parts for months trying to get the best rig for my money. With the motherboard is that better than an ASUS p6t Deluxe v2, cos i was recommended that one, also does eVGA E-LEET utility work with non-eVGA products?
Also just any SATA DVD/CD Burner. BTW i posted Newegg links for the products but i cant use newegg as previoulsy stated i just like their site. I'm also not sure wether i should eVGA or XFX for the vid card.
i was thinking about going along the lines of 2 gtx 260's but i will be getting a second 285 later on this year atm i'm really stuck for the motherbaord choice between the ASUS p6t Deluxe V2 or the eVGA Non-Classified x58.
To PhillipV, I have now idea where you got your info from but a single GTX 285 shits on a Radeon 4890, and with that Asus p6t Deluxe the V2 is cheaper and only has the SAS HDD option removed. As for WR2 thanks for the advice but with the case and PSU I will not be changing those to quickly as I need those for future upgrades and SLI options, But I'm still not sure whether i should get the eVGA or ASUS motherboard, as nobody can definitively tell me which one is better.
