Building a new PC. Current one is being given to mom for 350$ and decided to use that + more to build my own. I want to wreck games like WoW but also be able to play SC2/D3 when they come out at high.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Tommorrow BUDGET RANGE: 1000$, 100(200) or so either way won't kill me. Before any mail-in rebates.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA, NYC
PARTS PREFERENCES: None. The tower can look horrible for all I care aswell. It'll be sitting in a desk where the back is cut out to vent properly. I simply wish for a tower where all the parts will fit comfortably. Having to play operation with cables is annoying.
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe(one day)
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Quiet if possible. Doesn't have to be silent but I'd prefer not to have a jet engine under my desk.
I need a mobo which I'm having trouble with. And a tower that can comfortably fit this all in while also being great for ventilation. Also wanted atleast 4gb of ram to go with it.
Not sure if I'm missing anything else. Was also wondering about how RAID words with HDDs(Got recommended by someone to get 2 of the HDDs I have and RAID it. Also wanted clarification on the OS and OEM vs the full thats on newegg.
Edit: Im also not stuck on the AMD. I dunno about intel and my budget of 1-1.2k makes all of this weird. =/
How does OEM work with a OS? o.O; No disks? Im confused. D= And I picked the 850 just cause.. future proof mostly and cause It wasn't much to expensive. I have a 650 in my current PC and the minor price upgrade doesn't bother me. I'd prefer to always have the juice at hand. Unless overkill literally can overkill.
And looking though that now. Though it it sort of confusing but enlightening.
That said. Intel vs AMD? For gaming and at my price?
