I'm open to suggestions, but this is what I'm thinking about getting so far:
Corsair 600T white
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz
SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 2.5" 128GB SATA III
Things I need your help with making the best decision:
I am thinking of getting dual GPU's. Having said that - I will need to get PCIe 3.0 cards right? What do you suggest? I'm leaning towards 680s.
Acer GD235HZbid Black / Orange 23.6" 2ms(GTG). I am an avid gamer. I don't want to sacrifice anything here - is there any 'gotchas' I should be aware of when choosing between this and other 120hz monitors?
I also have the above RAM. very good stuff. and not overpriced like some 'high speed' memory.
You don't have to get a pci 3.0 GPU, any will work. the PCIe standards are back compatible.
As for the gpu, either a 7970 or 680 would be an amazing choice. they are virtually identical performance wise (when taking overclocking into account) so just get whichever is cheaper. I will most likely be getting a 7970, but in my country they are a fair bit cheaper.
Also about the 2700k , Idk when your planning to buy your rig , but ivy bridge is coming out soon and id swap the 2700k with the Ivy Bridge 3770k , its said to be faster more power efficient and at the same price 320$ range im guessing, If your not in a immediate rush, wait for the 3770k as its close , April 29th (Supposedly)
