Ok so my best friends dad build computers for a living (well used to any way) and is willing to build a brand new gaming computer for me if I buy the parts but he isn't one to help me look for the parts.
So far I have the:
ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard for $299.99
I have no clue which Hard Drive to choose I know it is going to be SATA and not SSD (too expensive) I do want at least 600 GB but would rather have 1TB any suggestions on that would be greatly appreciated.
No idea on power supply or case I just want something that will insure no over heating but wont break the bank but I am willing to spend some extra cash on higher end ones. In other words some choice would be appreciated if you guys could throw me some.
As for graphic card my friend is giving me his old one and I want to buy a really good one once I have the money for it so some suggestions there would be great too!
1tb Western digital black or Samsung Spinpoint F3.
Need to know if your overclocking, SLI or crossfire in the future, and what graphics card your using in order to recommend a psu.
Whats better the DDR3 1333 or 1600 I would assume the 1600. Also When looking at timings what is better lower numbers or higher or just how do you read it?
No I won't be over-clocking until I learn more about computers in general didn't really know what a processor was or didn't even know what all the parts were in a computer 3-5 days ago. But yes eventually. I am going to research SLI and crossfire I dont know what that is at the moment.
As for the graphics card I am using my friends old one for right now which is a really low budget one but I want to set up a system so that I can use a high grade one like I am willing to spend 200-300 price range if that helps with the psu? if not ill look up a more specific one.
I just asked the person above should I change the motherboard or processor is 1366 better than or more up to date than the 1155 bc if so ill change the processor.
