I've saved up for the past 3 years. The time is now. I'm ready to drop around $1,000 - $1,200 on parts for a new computer. I just don't know what the best product would be to get.
Right now I already have a monitor, keyboard, headset, mouse, cd/dvd drive, Win 7 64x, hard drive and video card.
I have a 24" Acer LED Monitor.
Megalodon 7.1 Surround Headset
G15 Logitech Gaming Keyboard.
EVGA GeForce GTX 470
1.5tb Western Digital HD
I LOVE my 470 a lot. I need a rig that can bring out the most of it.
What I need is:
A large case with excellent cooling/air flow
PSU (At least over 900watts)
Mobo (I was thinking Asus Rampage???)
Processor (I'm thinking Intel quad core)
I think that's it. If I'm missing anything, let me know. Oh, and should I go ahead and grab a bluray player?
What I'm asking for here, and I know I'm asking a lot, is for someone to make a list of those parts that are compatible and are meant for gaming. I'm looking for some hardcore stuff here. Like I said, I have around $1k to spend.
I have to ask is that WD 1.5 TB HDD a Green edition by chance? If so you will NOT want it as a primary drive. If it is a Black then you are fine but if it is a Green it will only be a 5400RPM drive and will be SLOW. I suggest a WD Black or Samsung Spinpoint F3 in 500GB, 1TB 1.5TB ect to take advantage of the newest 500GB platter designs. You may also look into a good SSD if you want real speed.
