first time posting on here been a lurker for some time now anyways here's my situation; I'm in need of a computer to do multiple things:
- gaming (CoD, Crysis, Wow, Aion, Etc.)
- video editing
- class work for college
- extensive fraps use
currently on a computer that's way outdated can hardly run the internet (relic from 02) in need of a monitor also mine has a short in the vga cable(non replaceable) where if you walk too hard on the floor and it vibrates it goes all rainbow colored on me and i have to readjust the cable to see . anyways I've got 1250 right now to spend on a computer including all parts shipped to my door + OS (poor college kid).
I'd like to upgrade to crossfire in the next month or so near Christmas but i need a complete computer before then. i can deal with the monitor for now off a DVI adapter as I already have a replacement coming by December.
I've been reading up a lot but I'm still new at this. pretty excited as this will be my first build ever. already have all the peripherals and a creative surround sound set up
Approximate Purchase Date : ASAP
Preferred Site For Parts : Newegg
so far i have the following parts going off what a friend has advised me to get but I'm open to suggestions/input
I would like this computer to last me atleast 2-3 years and have the potential to be upgraded in the future. I plan to add more ram in December also would like to go with atleast 8gigs
Do you all think this is a decent build that I should go with or no, am i forgetting anything, and are all the parts compatible? Like I said I've never done this before so I'd like to get a second opinion before i go dumping all my cash into a build that won't work.
Thanks for your time any input is greatly appreciated
