I want to buy a PC mainly for gaming.
I have come up with this build:
Thermaltake ToughPower Power Express 650W Power Supply
Memory: Corsair DOMINATOR DDR3 3072MB (3 x 1024) 1600MHz CL8
Antec NSK4000B II
Motherboard: MSI X58M
Processor: Intel Core i7 930 BOX
Graphic card: Diamond Radeon HD 5870 1024MB DDR5 Dual Slot
I will be playing the latest games on a 32'' HDTV at full HD resolution. How would this PC perform?
Thank you in advance.
The thing is, in the USA, you can get a 1000 Euro (= 1250 dollar) i7 930 gaming build. But with computer hardware being so much more expensive elsewhere, Euro 1000 will only get you $1000 worth of stuff in Europe. So a 930 means a cheaper GPU.
Basically, 1000 Euro doesn't go as far in Europe, as it does in the USA.
the rampage gene is about 150$ more than the MSI in my country. the evga is about 135$ more. are they worth the price?
And why did u recommend me the GTX 260? isn't the HD 5870 better? (I can afford the 5870)
Depends on the resolution, the game and what settings you wanna play at.
At higher resolutions and settings, the HD5870 is better but if you're on 1680x1050 or lower then the 460 is more than enough, it should even handle games like Metro 2033 at High and DX10 at that res for example. Also, the GTX 4xx cards scale very well in SLI.
