Greetings! This is my first post here on the forums but I have been a loyal reader of tom's hardware for quite some time. I am about to pull the trigger on some components for a new build and I thought I'd share with the community. Any tips/suggestions will be very much appreciated. This is my first build!
Total (after promo codes, discounts, rebates + shipping): $830 US
I should add that I will be reusing the dvd rw drive, keyboard, mouse, and monitor from my old system. Anyone see any potential issues with these specs? I plan on doing some casual gaming at lower resolutions (< Full HD).
Mmm. I'd get the ASUS P7P55D-E LX if you're not intending to CrossFireX, the P55A-UD3's second 16x slot is bottlenecked badly, if you are then I'd get the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro. I'd also get a SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB, and the RAM that jbakerlent suggested, if you're doing more than mild overclocking though, I'd keep the current RAM.
