Please let me know if this is a good build for extreme graphics, hardcore gaming, and general net browsing/homework. Also please point out any flaws in the choice or compatibility of these parts. This will be my first time putting a system together. Thank you very much...Gum
Will the performance booth be worth the $15? Probably not. The Mushkin is definitely not worth it, imo. But the silver (aka platinum) should be cooler looking through the case window at the very least.
And Windows 7 Release Candidate... can't you just get that online for free?
About your motherboard... do you really plan to get more than two graphic cards? If not, there are cheaper alternatives out there...
Okay, so now it's time to do some calibration depending on your needs.
1) What is your monitor resolution?
2) What is "extreme graphics" and "hardcore gaming," or in other words, What games do you want to play, with what settings? With or Without AA/AF maxed out? (Please mention specifically what you plan to do with Crysis)
3) I don't get why people put "general net browsing/homework" on these computer requirements when they just said "extreme graphics" and "hardcore gaming" before hand. "I need a pistol that will leave nasty exit wounds on the backs of people's skulls. Oh, and I need it to shoot through that piece of paper, too." Just messing with you, btw. xD
