Ooi fellas,I am a Canadian resident looking for a strictly gaming PC. After being a avid console gamer for 20+years,I finally got fed up with the sub-HD gaming experience on PS3 and XBOX360 offerings. So please help me get out of this mess.
My budget is $2000-$3000 (over/under NP)
My current PC is badly in need of upgrade,I purchased it in 2001,with minor upgrades since then,RAM,graphics card.
I plan on PC gaming with Panasonic Viera LCD 1080P model TC-37LZ800
I hope PC can hookup through HDMI if not,then it does have 15pin layout VGA terminal.
So basically the Pany can handle max res of 1920x1080/60p/24p through HDMI and VGA max at 1280x1024@60
!!!PLEASE KEEP IN MIND,MAX resolution is 1920x1080!!!
Processor: Intel or AMD
Mobo: MSI Big Bang X Power/Gigabyte X58A-UD9
RAM: NO CLUE...big NOOB
Graphics Card: Radeon 5970/GeForce GTX480
CASE: MEH,keep cool
PSU: Is this thing on?
DVD/BD: Burn baby,BURN!!!
All other BELLS&WHISTLES like cooling accessory,mouse,keyboard,controllers,(XBOX360 pad work). I would appreciate your input on those as well.
Hmmm just one month you say...if that's the case won't Radeon HD 5970 take a price hit.
Now onto more pressing matters. The RAM issue with Intel Core i7 900 series CPU's only support DDR3-1066 memory type. With that said,it limits my choices in RAM selection. Furthermore it has tri-memory channel with 24GB MAX.
