So i have around $2500-3000 I want to spend on building a new computer, I only build every few years, usually buying higher quality products that will last for some time. I had a few builds I've done and re-done on newegg a few times, but was still just not confident in my picks.
If anyone has the time or wants to, please leave feedback on the system that you would build with a $2500-3000 budget.
As far as usage/storage goes, I'm currently play Starcraft 2, CoD: MW2, and waiting for Final Fantasy 14 to come out. I also do a lot of complex C#/C++ work and Video Editing/Production. So I need a beast that can play hard and work harder when I need it.
Well my question being, does anyone have experience with the new SATA III 6/0gb's SSD's? Is the technology reliable or is it going to be touch and go. Having A lot of my core apps and OS open/boot in a few seconds compared to almost a minute in some is very nice. Also is there a distinct advantage now in getting a new Nvidia CUDA 480 vs ATI's 5870 platform?
