Hey guys, I decided that I will be building an i5 rig as the first computer I will ever build myself. However with my limited knowledge of computer hardware I need some advice from you guys. I've done a lot of reading and research so I came up with this list but I want everyone opinion whether its good or bad what to change etc. I'm still in the process of choosing my parts so here it is. My budget is around 1000$ to 1200$CDN.
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supplyhttp://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
-As for the graphics card I will be getting one of the new ATI5000 series either the 5870 or the 5850.
I will be using my current case, optical drive, hard drive, key board, mouse and monitor. I will be using windows 7 at 64 bit. I will be playing at the resolution of 1920x1080. I don't think I will be overclocking anything since this is the first computer i will build. My questions are
you think this setup last for 3-4 years?
Are they all compatible with each other?
Is the motherboard good or should I pick the cheaper ones?
Is the power supply good enough I have a feeling its too much but I might decide to go sli ro xfire in the future?
Is the ram good enough?
Is the setup, windows 7 64 bit compatible?
I also want to have the option of going SLI or Xfire in the future when the prices of the new card goes down dirt cheap. Any suggestions?
