I’m not sure exactly what you are asking: either is this setup good or is there a way to keep the same performance and go cheaper.
That is a good set up for a gaming pc. The PII 955 will not bottleneck the gpu hence you will be playing game at very high settings. I hope that your cart has at least 4gb of ram in it. If you looking for input on your parts and ways to save money on your build please list all of the parts that you are buying.
@ blackhawk1928, Im sorry for inapropriate posting, im a Forum Neewbie (as you can probably tell)
@ Taco, Thanks, from what I read, I believe, on my budget, with the demands of modern gaming being centred Incresingly on the GPU in high specs, I am better saving money on my Processor and board (AMD 955 is still a darn good processor) to spend extra on my Video Card so long as my CPU isnt lagging with bottlenecks as Pro Llama was saying? --Stop me if Im wrong here--
So ill start again as best i can..
Im looking to buy and build my gaming rig within the next 2 week period, £750-1250GBP (Including UK P&P) is my budget but only because I am not convinced i can atchieve my gaming system for less than £750 but I am open to ideas if someone has a genie-mouse suggestion?
I will use this system virtually Exclusively for High End gaming, may do some benchmarking and overclocking if required but im not to keen on messing too much with a pricey gaming system ive just baught for that sort of ££££, but I need the system to be Amply capable at 1080p on new releases, future releases and as far into the gaming future as is possible for this budget. (As im sure you all would too!)
I have a 1080p Panasonic TX=P42G10B that i shall use as a primary/gaming display and an old analogue DVD surround system that will suffice for my sound from an onboard sound device, otherwise I need all parts for my tower system.
Ok.. Im aware there is no PSU or aftermarket cooling for the CPU, and the monitor may be OTT for a LAN monitor but i would like 1440x900 on the fly for this machine if possible? I need advice on all of the above if possible here
Lastly, I post here to ask for general input on the system build regarding both price (£1207 and 'fit for purpose' as described) Comments and Critism (Justified and fair) are welcome on any aspect of the build.
