Parts Preferences: Nvidia GPU as I play IL2 and it likes the improved openGL performance. Intel CPU I guess
Overclocking: Yes once I get an aftermarket cooler, though the cost of the cooler should not be considered in the initial build
SLI or Crossfire: Yes but probably not initially. I may consider a separate GPU as a PhysX unit.
Monitor Resolution: would like LED 1920*1080
Additional Comments: Not too concerned about aesthetics. How it works > how it looks.
I currently have somthing roughly in mind which involves the following:
CPU: i7 950
MB: ASUS Sabertooth X58
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 460 1MB
Memory: unsure maybe 6 gb corsair dominator 1600 ddr3 CL8
Case: Antec 300
Storage: 1 or 2 Samsung spinpoint f3 1TB
Optical Drive: Samsung DVD R/w with lightscribe
Budgeting £200 for monitor - undecided make/model. Must have speakers built in.
Unsure of PSU - I'm thinking of a corsair somewhere between 650 and 750w
Will get sound card in future
Did I miss anything?
Go easy....it's my first build and I'm new and sensitive
