Hi guys, I'm building a PC for a friend of mine. The main aim is to build something future-proof that can play Battlefield Bad Company 2 and most of the latest games on 1900 by 1200 at a good level of detail, apart from that it's fairly open. Here is what I've gone with http://i.imgur.com/A0rrn.png and I would really appreciate any comments or improvements from you. Thanks for your time. Ant.
Thanks for the replies. The main use of the PC will be gaming. I completely forgot the PSU tbh. Overall price was going to be about 450-500 but it seems to be rising :-). With a decent PSU I guess it'll come to about 630 overall. Any ideas for shaving a few pounds off? I was thinking of a 500-550W PSU, do you think that will be enough? Thanks again. Ant.
I haven't built a PC for a couple of years now and was just assuming LGA775 was the way to go. Why would you say "it's dead". Do you think, for the price point, it is worth going for a X4 630 or would it be wise to spend an extra 30 and get an X4 955?
