Well I have been planning to get a new computer for some time now but until now I haven't really had the money. The problem is that I don't really know what to get and since i am in Australia, the prices are much higher and the range is much smaller.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next two weeks
BUDGET: AU$1000 (can get a couple hundred more if needed but would rather it stay around 1000)
SYSTEM USAGE: Photoshop, Games, Video Editing (have a laptop for office and all that)
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Only things I have are a mouse (ms x5) and a mouse pad by Razer
1. The HD 5670 is nowhere near a gaming class card vs HD 5770
2. At your budget concentrate getting as much frames your $$ could buy you not about mobos unless its trashy hehe
3. That ION line is not 80+ certified so even though u seem to fork out more for an 80+ PSU in the long term it pays for itself via power bill savings ^^
You are welcomed
Hmmm interesting, I dont pay for the bill though. Haha, that's bad i know.
I just really want to keep this to $1200 and lower.
Also I need a keyboard and am keen on a headset.
When it comes to the 5670 vs 5770 I am not sure but honestly I am not much of a gamer. I do enjoy them but sacrificing a few details on current games is something I am willing to do. Still open to the 5770 though.
If u do not want to crossfire i would say the $86 paid for going to the Asus 770 to Gigabyte 790X is a complete waste and if u willing to up your budget i would have tried to hit a nice 22" as a bigger display is often under estimated w.r.t the joy of using one's rig
I have i5 750 and with CM Hyper TX3 my temps is now much better.
here dude comparation,
With stock cooler (ambient 18c):
With CM Hyper TX3:
LOAD: 53c im soo surprised with this cooler, but Hyper 212+ is much better if you want coolder CPU.
