So I'm about to attempt to build my first computer. To be blatantly honest, I know a little about computer systems; however, I am no where near the tech genius that most of these forum goers are. With that being said, I am looking to spend around $800 max (not including Windows 7). I am looking for an all around good computer with the primary focus being Gaming/Multimedia. To be honest, the system that I have created will be overkill for the game that I play the most, World of Warcraft, however I would like it to be able to handle some games coming out in future months (Knights of the Republic comes to mind) Anyway, any alternative or suggestions you guys can come up with would definitely be appreciated. Thank you.
Looks like a great build so far, If your looking into some serious overclocking, My suggestion is to go with the MSI GTX 460 Cyclone, amazing cooling and powerful OC ability. Also for more of a future thing I would look into the MSI P55A-G55 Motherboard, its like 10 bucks more, and buy another GTX 460 later on and you can run SLI 460's. Of course youd need a better PSU (700w+). Those are my 2 cents lol.
No according to the site that PSU only has one 6 pin connector and one 6+2 connector. The MSI cyclone takes two 6 pin connections. So you need a PSU thats roughly 650 modular to 750w depending on the money your looking at. The biggest thing to look for is that it has at least four 6 pin connectors.
