I'm new to this forum, but I've lurked and done research here previously. I am going to be buying parts for a new budget build for Starcraft 2. I have done a fair bit of research and I'd just like final comments on this build before I order the parts. I have read the Tom's article on SC2 performance.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next 3 days
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Starcraft 2, windows movie maker for school, school work (light)
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I'm buying everything new
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I am in Canada, so Newegg.ca looks like it has the best prices
PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type: I've gone with AMD/ATI because they seem to give the most value at this price point
OVERCLOCKING: Light at most. and no need to for xfire
MONITOR RESOLUTION: The selected res is 1600 by 900
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I have the W7 64 bit. first time I'm building a PC myself but I'll just follow online guides. I'd like to play on ultra settings, but if I cant push completely ultra that is ok. My price range caps out at about 800 with monitor and parts, my current build hits 783 with shipping.
Wow, I'm actually going to do this lol, it's only $390 before rebates and really good for crysis, also, is the motherboard crossfire ready? And just to be sure can I disable the onboard 3000 and just install a dedicated one?
