First off, this isn't really going to be a "Homebuilt" computer. I'm just looking for good enough specs to give to this electronics store (SmartBuy) and they're going to build it for me.
1. I have no idea how to build one and am a total computer noob.
2. I live in Jordan and i don't know if these websites you guys use to order parts actually ship to my country, and even if they did.. well.. there's some trust issues
Anyway, on to the good stuff:
Approximate Purchase Date: Preferably this month.
Budget Range: 1000JDs, so that's approx 1400$
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Programming (Need it to support Directx11. And yes, i do realize the irony), Graphics Modelling and Gaming (MMOs).
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse and speakers.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Now this might be a bit of a problem, so just go by average prices?
Country of Origin: Jordan.. You might probably need to look this one up
Parts Preferences: N/A
Overclocking: Uhm.. ok
SLI or Crossfire: I'm not sure.. depends on your GPU suggestion i guess?
Monitor Resolution: Nothing too big, nothing too small?
Additional Comments: I apologize for the lack of helpful information, i really have no clue! I did however do some research:
CPU: i7-880 sounds good (according to the charts at least) I also found this one:
Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 480 or is it overkill? maybe GeForce GTX 285?
RAM: do you think 6GB DD3 is good or more/less? (Don't know any brands though...)
OS: Windows 7. No idea which edition though..
Also please note, i don't know if my budget is good enough for a case + monitor.. is it?
