So that is what I was thinking for a new system. Monitor and Headset don't really matter. Its the rest of the parts really. What do you guys think of that for gaming on cod4 and the next cod6. Don't play any other games, but I do design websites and coding.
By COD6, you mean modern warfare 2? COD 7 is already in development.
But that rig will tear the fps out of COD4 like nobody's business, capable of more graphically demanding games too if you ever decide to play something else. As far as design goes, its fine, the I7 and the 4890 will be just fine.
One little thing though, the HD is a little weak, only 160 GB, if you can afford it go a bit larger (the law of bigger HD's states, the bigger they are, the faster they respond) its a strange law but its very true. All in all, a good setup.
Yeh I will never be SLI or Xfire so I was told that a smaller PSu is fine as at first I had the 750HX but wasn't sure if it had the correct power pins to fit the graphics card as it needs 6pin but the HX dont have any 6 pin connectors only 8 pin. Also I'll put a bigger HDD in it then, I thought small would run better and as I don't use alot of space went with that, but I'll put a 1T in the system. Thanks for your advice
So would you suggest I go for like a Dual Core or maybe a Quad Core as games dont use the 4 cores yet. I mean what would be the best way to spend 1200 to make my gaming experience perfected for a few years
Thanks Proximon, I'll go down the quad core route then so it can be upgraded in the future.
Rescawen. I know Mw2 isn't out yet and comes out end of year some time, but I can't wait till then for my new system as I work from my computer and my laptop is failing and need a new system within a month. Thanks for your advice tho.
If you have faith in what the forums are saying, you might want to stick with an HD 4870 or a GTX 260 Core 216 as these can both be found very cheap right now, and they should hold you over very nicely until the next series of cards comes out, which is just rumored to be Q4 this year. I'm just assuming that you'll be playing at 1680x1050, which is a very reasonable resolution for either the GTX 260 or the HD 4870.
