Not sure if you would call this a mid end gaming pc or what so...
Usage: Gaming (games like COD MW2), school work, internet and a small amount of video editing/music editing
Resolution of screen: 1920x1080
Budget: $1500 AUD (1,351.14 USD) but i really dont want to go that high, i only will if it is needed. Not including the screen.
How much i want to spend: $1250 AUD(1,126.01 USD). Not including the screen.
Refer to the thread "How to Ask for New Build Advice." We really need a budget and resolution is THE factor for the video card.
First, don't get Corsair RAM. It's overpriced. Pick up a set of G.Skill DDR3 1333 mhz 7-7-7-x sticks. There are some Eco sticks with 1.35v that I like to recommmend.
Second, you should be getting the Spinpoint F3. This is the fast drive, not the F1.
Third, depending on the resolution (and budget) and if you're thinking of upgrading your monitor, you should also consider this 5850. At very least, you should be getting the 5770. It's a lot better for only marginally more.
We can do a whole lot more if you follow the guide to posting...
