APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: One Week BUDGET RANGE: $1000 - $1200 SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Light Web Development, Office Use PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor (Dell UltraSharp 2709W 27-inch WideScreen) PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes (Future Date, purchasing one card now) MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Important factors are that it runs cool and quiet, I don’t need flash I’m looking for a good gaming PC that will last for about 2 years before needing an update. Below is what I am looking at purchasing I would like your assessment. For the HDD I plan on the 500GB one for OS and the two 750’s for applications running in a Raid 0.
Total price with out optional items is $1292.83 a little over my budget but that is ok, I think the wife will let me spend a little extra =) I would appreciate any comments I plan on running Vista 64bit until Windows 7 hit the shelves then picking that up.
Yea I was thinking about upgrading the PSU, I guess I was just trying to get off cheap.
I guess for the price, the 640GB HDD would be a better choice.
As for the cooling, my office gets a little warm sometimes as it's on the second floor and my wife hates the cold, but in her cold I'm still sweating. I figured I go for the little extra cooling and who knows down the road I may overclock.
