This is my first build and I've been trying to read up as much as i can to build something good and make sure it's all compatible. I'm building it to play games like World Of Warcraft , call of duty black ops and maybe crysis 2 with good fps. I am going to be playing on my 42' hdtv tv for awhile until I can buy a monitor and I'm not sure it that makes a difference or not.
I was looking at the AMD phenom ii x6 1090t but I can't make up my mind if I should get that or an intel i5 2600k sandy bridge or even spend a little more if its worth it for the i7 2600k sandy bridge. I have a budget of $1000 but would go maybe $100 more if I needed to because I still have to spend 100 on an OS. I don't need a keyboard or mouse so that cuts a tad bit out.
I'm having trouble choosing the CPU and motherboard so any advice would help. The rest of the components I'm thinking of are these but I'm open to any suggestions on a build for around $1000 for maximum performance for the games i listed.
you don't trust an XFX build with 44 amps? a 560 needs 24a for the whole system.
a single 560, in Tom's review when it came out, used 283W for the whole system. second will add about 200 W, a total of about 483W. But a 600W 80+ Bronze PSU is not good enough to handle 483W to you? really?
