So after spending most of last night and all of today reading through countless threads, articles, and charts. (Note: This is my first time building I was trying to understand a lot of the lingo) I want a gaming computer with some longeticity 3-4 years.
I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to build with a Sandy Bridge i5 2500K with January just around the corner and the promising data I figured waiting is well worth it.
I'm planning and having 6-8 gigs of RAM ( I was looking through the previews of the GIGABYTE and ASUS mobos and it looks like the they're gonna have DDR3)
And a graphics card from either the Radeon HD 6000 series or the Geforce GTX 500 series
Trying to keep the budget 1000-1200 USD range and speculating from current price projections I will be spending between 300-500 on the mobo and the CPU, so I'd like some opinions I know a lot of you out there are hoarding components for the big day. What are some of your guys opinions on what we can buy as of now?
ive done the exact same thing. Its my first build too and was gonna make it this next week till i did my research on SB.
I have bought everything but SB the mobo and my video card/cards...
So where did you find the predicted prices on Mobo's?
