I am looking for something I can use for games, as well as have 3 monitors going at once. I have 3 24inch screens right now, all running at 1920x1080. Mostly I just want to be able to have a movie running on one, and be able to use the other 2 for reading.
Once the HD6000's hit I will most likely look into either 2 5770/ 2 58xx's (depending on price) or a single 6xxx (depending on how much better they are). Until the cards drop I have a 5770 on loan from a friend. I think all other issues are covered by the template below, however if i overlooked something (quite possible) I will be more than happy to elaborate.
Approximate Purchase Date: Week or Two max
Budget Range: I would like to keep this under $900USD after mail-ins.
System Usage from Most to Least Important:
3+ monitor support (i assume this is mostly a video card thing, just wanted to make sure the RAM/CPU etc would have this in mind) for web/media
World of Warcraft / Starcraft 2/ plethora of FPS's, although none really cutting edge
movies/photo editing (nothing series, just stuff i do for fun)
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, sound card, Monitor, Hard drives, OS, wireless internet card, Blueray/dvd/cd drives, floppy drive, video cards (waiting to see what effect the 6000's have)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg/tiger/amazon. Others if the price is lower, however these are sites i've noticed are most trusted.
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: N/A
SLI or Crossfire: When new HD6000's hit - maybe
Monitor Resolution: (1920x1080)
CPU/Motherboard (combo): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
I went with the I7 due to the multi-tasking. If the I5 is still better bang for buck I am more than willing, however I would like to stay away from AMD on this build. As for the Motherboard, I would like USB 3.0, other then that its really just anything that can xfire 2 HD5xxx/HD6xxxs.
The notion of no power issues, and possibly the ability to upgrade internals with out worry, as well as seeing how high THW rated this brings me comfort. If 850w is just stupid I am open to any ideas as well, just something i noticed.
I would like to stick to a full size case if possible, other than that really just worried about heat? This one just seemed to look nice, have good reviews across different websites, and (as per what the reviews stated) deals with heat quite well.
In closing, its been a while from my last build (any opinions and or corrections are MORE than welcome. The items I provided are really just examples of what seemed right given the price and the reading I have done, my heart is not set on any of them.
Yeah, I cant say that I WANT to spend that much haha, it just seemed like everyone loved it. I really know nothing about cases, so that pick was just the ultra safe pick (I've done quite a bit of reading, but every post I come across seems way too subjective for me to trust, if that makes sense?). Do you by chance have any cases you could recommend that are cheaper?
