APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP. My current computer is driving me insane.
BUDGET RANGE: Around $1000 for everything (before/after rebates).
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming (SCII, Just Cause 2, GTA IV, NFS: Shift), watching movies, multitasking.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Need everything including monitor, keyboard, mouse, and OS. No speakers needed.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg and Microcenter (Kinda far for me though). I never shopped on ZipZoomFly or NCIX but if you can find good prices for parts I need, please use them.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: New York City
PARTS PREFERENCES: I prefer AMD. Socket 1156 is dead anyway.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1080.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I used Batuchka's build from my previous thread to find more combos to get all the parts I wanted. (b^_^)b I don't know if 600W is enough for this build. Thanks to everyone in advance.
Do I need a anti-static wrist strap or can I just touch the case/power supply after it is plugged into an outlet to discharge?
Just touch the case and you should be fine.
Honestly I actually never cared about this and all I did was work barefoot and have yet to break anything (I think lol), but if it makes you feel safer, a $10 anti-static wrist strap is definitely buyable.
