Alright, so I am going to attempt my first computer build in the next month or so. This topic will mostly be focused on the components of my build so I will tell you all what I am looking for. Basically all I intend on using the computer for is gaming. I would like to have 3D capabilities so that I can play games in 3D and watch 3D blu-ray movies. The only other tasks I will be performing will be very undemanding, using the internet and typing school papers mostly.
I will list all of the components I intend to buy below. I would really appreciate it if you guys would take a look and tell me: A) Is that all I need? If I order all of this, will I have everything I need to put a computer together? and B) Am I getting the best investment for my money($2k budget)? Are there any components you guys think I am spending too much on? Is there something better that you recommend?
Basically I would like it to be good to go out of the box(es), but still have room for upgrading later.
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 - I am pretty set on this part. I really like this case. ($89.99)
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1090T black edition - Went for the AMD instead of Intel because of the price difference, but I went for top of the line AMD because I figured this would be the hardest thing to upgrade later. ($295.99)
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 460 Superclocked - Decided not to go for anything higher because the prices for the new models are out of control. Figure I can always upgrade later or go SLI. What do you guys think about this particular manufacturer/model of the 460? ($249.99)
Wow, thank you for the quick reply. This is exactly why I asked. I knew with the budget I had I should be able to do a lot, but I didn't know enough to do it . I will definitely swap the memory, cooler, hard drive, and video card. And I'll see if I still have enough money to go for the Intel as opposed to AMD.
I don't have the 3D glasses/monitor, but I am actually hoping to get that as a gift for Christmas, so I am preparing well in advance.
