I am looking to build a new gaming system and I am trying to spend right around 800 dollars. My problem is, right now there are so many "experts" out there throwing around their opinions about which chipset is best, which architecture to go with, and how to "properly" configure a crossfire or SLI setup, it can leave one confused and frustrated. Please help me throw together the best rig i can for this price.
Parts Already owned: Mid ATX case, 850 Watt power supply, mouse, keyboard, monitor.
Help spending my remaining 800$ on the best setup i can get would be much appreciated.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next couple of weeks
Budget Range: 800$ After Rebates.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming.
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, PSU(850W, Cant remember the exact model). ATX Mid Case
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: If the parts are quality i don't care where they come from.
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: No preference, whatever the best is.
Overclocking: Yes, if you more experienced users would recommend it.
SLI or Crossfire: If it will give me the best performance, Yes.
Monitor Resolution: The higher the better. As long as the game looks nice, i'm not fixed on a number.
Additional Comments: I want to make a system that will give me performance that i can enjoy for a few years. If i absolutely must spend a little more to get that kind of performance and lifespan then i am willing to do so, but if i can stay under 800$ and still get a machine that is amazing and takes advantage of some of the latest technology that would be great.
