Video - ATI Radeon HD5770 GDDR5 SDR 1024MB/256bit
(planning to add a second one at some point)
HDD - 2x WD CAVIAR BLACK 640GB in raid 0
PSU - ANTEC PSU 750W 12CM ATX 80+ EPS CBL.M BL
(some spare watts for the future upgrading/oc )
Memory - DDR3-1333 4GB in dual channel..not sure which brand to use (??)
Case - ?? i have no idea what case to buy im lost on this one ( i dont fancy those flashy "kool gamerz rig" looks, would prefer simple and functional one )
Usage : im planning to use it for quite a while (3-5 years) ; primarily for games, music production/recording and general stuff like web surfing, watching movies, music ;
im not a very hardcore gamer ( i am in regards with starcraft:broodwar but i dont think it matters ) but i really wanna try out gta4 and maybe some other demanding games. it wont be an issue if i couldnt run my games at best resolution and settings, im more of a gameplay quality over cool graphics kind of guy.
thinking to oc it a bit later on ( prolly when cpu/ram warranty expires )
parts not needed : keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, audio card
going to run it with win7 64bit @ 1280x1024 res (maybe a bit bigger res)
price range is quite irrelevant here as prices in my country differs quite a bit, but i think this configuration would cost around 800USD so i would like to try to stick to this price.
looking forward for any sort of input from you guys ! cheers
thanks, banthracis! case and hdd advices are interesting, definetly will do more research on spinpoint and seagate! but as im from lithuania special deals doesnt concern me, hehe ;] and asus mb is actually cheaper than gigabyte at my place, but i appreciate your help! oh and btw, g skill runs at 1600mhz, will it operate with this configuration? this mobo doesnt seem to support it..
