APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: I Would like to purchase the parts from New Egg anywhere between November 5th and November 30th, I'm willing to Spend 2,000 but from what I'm reading I shouldn't have to.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Listening to music, Porn, Playing Movies, Browsing the web, Chatting Messenger systems, Burning CDs.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, monitor, Speakers, web camera. I don't need anything really except the tower i guess.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: NewEgg.com
PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type: I don't care about Brand, As long as it works well with the other parts and makes a sick computer.
OVERCLOCKING: I will not be Overclocking. I don't know how.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster T240. It's 24 inches. The resolution i use is 1920/1200. I would like to use its HD features.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like to use windows 7 as an operating system(don't account for it in the price). Other then that you have free reign. My friend will be building this for me out of the kindness of his heart. I would just let him pick everything, But he said from lurking this site and posting a build of his own a while back that the expert opinions on this site were outstanding and very helpful and 2 heads are better then 1 Etc.
Thanks in advance and i truly appreciate the time you put into helping me.
Edit: Additional Information I chose November 5th as the starting date because i need the grace period to take the money out of my mutual fund.
Also Have fun with this treat it as if you were buying it for yourself thanks again <3
its a good deal, but would it be better to use 2x2 to take advantage of dual channel
because for $20 extra another 2 gigs of ram is worth it, plus its faster clock speed
but i dont know if you can use dual channel with 3 chips?
And itisravi has a good suggestion there about the graphic cards...
But I would still go with HD 5870 for now because it can easily max out any games @ 1080p resolution and you wouldn't have to worry about crossfire issues for sometime...So when more demanding games come out, then get another HD 5870 for crossfire...
But if you want to go full guns on the graphics front, then like itisravi said, you might want to check out the 5850X2/ 5870X2 and they should be available by end of Nov...So decide on the graphics card at the end...
