For my first post, I'm asking for your help on my first build ever
I'm searching for a gaming rig not to pricy, not to cheap. I've done some research and this is what I created for now:
Purchase date: beginning July
Propositions: Case:Antec Nine Hundred II Power:Tagan TG900-BZ PipeRock 900W Motherboard:Asus Rampage II GENE Ram:Kingston ValueRAM DIMM 6 GB DDR3-1066 Tri-Kit Graphix:XFX HD4890 Black Edition 1gb Processor:Intel® Core i7-920 Hard disk:Samsung HD103UJ 1terra 7200rpm dvd-reader/writer:Samsung SH-S222A
Crossfire: Maybe in the future
(website: www.alternate.be (Belgien website))
My plan is to buy another HD4890 in the future and make a crossfire with the first one.
But.. being a noob in at building rigs I got some Questions:
- Is the motherboard well enough for a gaming rig or should I go for a more pricy one (like the P6T Deluxe V2 X58 from asus)
- Should I buy Ram memory with more mhz and try to clock the 920?
- Should I wait for the graphic cards with directx 11?
I hope you can help me with some good tips and some help optimising my rig, because I don't have a clue if this is going to furfill my needs ( I'm aiming to play GTA 4 at top quality )
