I am looking at upgrading my current computer its a HP so basically have to get all new parts. I currently have a AMD 64x2 4800, ati 3870 2x1gb, ddr2 800 and a 17" monitor this is the rig i am looking at getting.
Wasting money on an ugly cheap case. Get this for just 10 bucks more, looks WAY better, has AMAZING features like rubber grommets for cooling and cable management, magnetic bay cover, bottom PSU mount, 4 fans (1 x 140mm and 3 x 120mm (one w/blue LED) and much much more
Thanks for quick reply. I was actually looking at maybe logitech G15 keyboard.
I would highly suggest the Razer Lycosa over a G15 man.. 108 backlit fully programmable macro keys, USB, headphone and microphone jack IN the keyboard, grip surface on all keys, touchpad media controls, VERY fast response and much more. G15 has a mini monitor thing on it, in MY opinion it's retarded. If you wanna buy it feel free to, but I would highly suggest thinking that over.
Dont get be wrong but wouldnt it be better to get the A-Data ram that is faster for the exact same price.
It's faster, but it has a CAS Latency of 9. You can easily overclock the Ripjaws to 1600, or you could get a 1600 Ripjaws model too. The CAS Latency of 7 vs 9 is a nice thing to have. Plus I don't really know much bout A-Data, they look ok, but I haven't heard of them as a trusted brand. I'm not saying they're not, but the G.SKILL is trusted, has heatspreaders, CAS Latency of 7, looks nice, and yeah. You can always overclock the RAM.
Def gunna go with that case good recomendation.
No problem, glad you like it, it's a beautiful case and well made, not plasticy or cheap.
As far as the monitor Acer just seems like a cheap brand to me(dont know much about them) also the ASUS is 2ms response time
Acer is not a cheap brand, I used to think so but they have great deals on monitors. 5ms vs 2ms? Getting things to your screen 2 ms faster is more important than increasing your screen size and getting a better monitor?
And i already have a Logitech G5 BF2142 mouse that has been serving me well for a while now.
I'm not a fan of Logitech when it comes to mice or keyboards, Razer is where it's at, so if you're lookin for peripherals, check out Razer. Their mice and keyboards are just amazing.
I apologize if I sound rude or anything, I'm very picky and defensive about some stuff, I'm just tryin to help out as I hate seeing money go to waste. It's like spending 400 dollars extra to get a LITTLE bit of performance boost. It's just a waste. So I'm trying to prevent that for people.
Hope I helped you out, best answer is appreciated once I've answered all your questions
