I'm currently pricing out a new system using parts from a local store. I'm in Canada, so newegg is no good for me to use.
I was originally thinking of going the i5 750 route, although a recent incident with my car has left me with a slightly tighter budget for the time being.
I play mostly FPS games at a 1680 x 1050 resolution and would like to maintain decent frame rates without having to turn down my settings to low (such as is the case for me with Battlefield Bad Company 2 at the moment). If this is possible with $900 or less that would be great, although if the performance increase is dramatic enough I could go up to $1000.
I already have a case, hdd, dvd drive, and was hoping to re-use my current Corsair TX650 watt psu if it'll be able to handle this. EDIT - I have an OS as well, sorry I forgot to mention that
I want to eventually crossfire the video card and I'll definitely be overclocking. The only place I'll be getting parts from is a local store called memory express. Any thoughts?
