  1. It depends on the games you want to play and what rez you want to play them at, Do you have any parts ATM ? OS / MOUSE / KB / MONITOR / SPEEKERS ?

    For the PC only with a OS for a rez of 1080 your looking at about 700 to 1100 for a gaming rig.
  2. sorry i guess i got ahead of myself there, i only need an OS, I have a 22in 1050p monitor and would try to use it on my 46in 1080p tv. I have a keyboard and mouse, just need the parts and os really.

    What kind of budget do you have ? and what games ?
  4. Are you into OCing ? do you want a option to Xfire or sli down the road or a single GPU setup is ok ?
  5. i don't think i would want to go over 700, mainly RTS and FPS like Empire and crysis (a bit old I know, but a favorite)

    single GPU is fine for me as long as it does the job. Seeing as I;ve never OCed before I'm kinda hesitating on saying yes, however I could look into it.

    I was only playing with you :)
  13. the GPU wont be bottlenecked
  14. With the CPU at 3,2 you will be fine.
  15. Plus whatever overclocking you decide to do.

    CPU will not be a bottle neck
