HELLO, new to the forums. So after 6years of using my laptop, I have finally decided to build my own desktop. What I am aiming for is decent gaming (by this i mean, i can run new games today at high and be able to run games down the road on mid/low settings)
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within next week or 2.
BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: 600-800) Before Rebates 1-1.2k Canadian.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Strictly gaming.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel, but honestly, i don't really care.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Not sure yet.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: With all that being said, I haven't really looked into any hardware related news or performance for last 5-6years since i last bought my laptop. Now I am looking to build a desktop with decent gaming abilities. The list below are what I am planning to purchase and for some components I just don't know what I should do (price vs performance).
So there it is. It equates out to be roughly 1-1.1k cdn. I would really appreciate if you guys can answer some of the questions I have above especially regarding ram and such. Also if you guys can give me alternative hardware to replace what I have down and can save me money for same performance or if you guys can give me suggestion to enhance my system by just increasing it 30-40$ i wouldn't mind adding a bit more.
