Total Price w/o monitor $543.95(w/ 460GTX vid card)
Monitor: (don't know if i need one for sure until i determine if mine is fixable, gotta tear it apart and check the caps but here is one that i'm interested in...) ASUS VH236H Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Please review and critique this combination. Thanks in advance.
*edit for afterthought... i dont think the cpu/mobo combo i selected comes with a cooling fan,...and i'm drained after hours of "Newegging"...so if anyone has any suggestions on a good cooling unit i'd love to hear it and see a link. thanks again. And i changed my mind from ATI to Nvidia after reading all of the driver issues.
Id probably spend a little less on the GPU and a little more on the CPU. The CPU plays a much larger role with FPS in 25 man raids than the GPU. A RL friend of mine is running 40+ FPS in 25 mans on an i5/5670. Although, if youre going to be playing at higher resolutions then id definitely go with the 5770.
