New gaming build, $2000-$2500 Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: December 9, 2010 3:09 AM in Systems Share chedderslam1976 December 8, 2010 10:29:57 PM Hi, guys. My soon-to-be brother in law wants a decent system. He plays fps games. Approximate Purchase Date: Next month or so Budget Range: 2000-2500 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming maxed out Parts Not Required: Need everything Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, but others like tigerdirect are ok as well Country of Origin: US Parts Preferences: Core i7 950, corsair psu(850 or 1000). I was thinking the crucial realssd with a mb that can use it, perhaps two large drives in raid 1 for media. Overclocking: Yes, would like a decent air cooler and a case that can fit it. SLI or Crossfire: Maybe now, definitely down the line. Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200, considering ATI for 3 monitors in eyefinity. Strongly leaning towards the dell ultrasharp 24", but concerned about the cost of three of those. Additional Comments: I'm not sure if I should wait for the new ATI cards to come out before buying, when are they due? Would like three monitors, max settings, and 100 fps if possible. I know 100 fps is silly but this is for a relative and that's what he wants.
