I asked awhile back about a ~$1000 gaming build, and it took me quite a bit longer than I originally anticipated to get the money for it. This is the thread
. I had to change motherboards because the combo deal went away, and was wondering if this was still a solid build with the new mobo.
This acutally looks very good, very solid. probably exactly what i would have done.
only thing i would change probably is the motherboard combo.
I think you should stick wtih the top of the line mobos, 890fx chipset. mobos are heavily underappreciated, and saving a few here and there might not get make the most out of your other high end parts.
i like asus, so i might be a bit bias to them, since they havnt failed me ever.http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.470477
Middle end 890fx mobo, usb3.0 and sata6gb/s. not bad oc features, you can read some comments and reviewshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.445508
This has the game, if you want. MSI mobo, also usb3.0 and sata6. Also, mid endhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.470499
The top of the line Asus am3 mobo. Very high quality design, very OC capable, very stable. If you read the reviews, it is fast, reliable, and got nice features. Personally, I would spend the extra $$ here for reliability and an excellent brand. But if you dont plan to OC, the otehr asus board will be just fine.
Theres a combo with the game too: $389.98http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.445497
