Hey guys, a few days ago I went to TigerDirect and got my gaming rig parts, the system is up & running and is great! I would just like some advice on what i could have done or what i can upgrade.
The specs are as follows:
Intel Core i5 2500k running at 4.7Ghz
8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600mhz
AMD Radeon HD 6870(XFX) flashed to the black editon's BIOS
4 80GB Intel X25-V SSDs in RAID 0 and a Seagate Barracuda 1TB for storage
Windows 7 PRO 64bit
Cooler Master HAF 922
Cooler master Hyper N520 CPU Cooler
ASUS P8P67 PRO B3 Stepping Mobo
Diablotek PHD Series 750w
For my periphirals(I think i spelled that wrong)
Logitech G500 Gaming mouse
Razer Arctosa gaming keyboard
I forgot the brand but the abbreviation is CA
and those are 2.1 channel speakers
And a Dell E228FP 22" Monitor @ 1680x1050 75Hz
I think i could have gotten better RAM and Corsair SSDs instead of Intel SSDs
but I think it is great, I can run CRYSIS maxed with 8xAA on 1680x1050 because my monitor can't do 1080p
I would really appreciate it if i could get some advice
Kingston HyperX is good RAM, and 1600 is a good speed for Sandy Bridge systems.
I would have saved quite a bit of money by only getting one 120GB or 160GB SSD and using it as a boot drive with only the OS and the most-used games/programs on it. Then the Seagate drive would have been for the rest of the programs and data.
I would have used the SSD savings to get a 23" or larger monitor for at least 1920x1080 (1080p HD) resolution and a Radeon 69xx graphics card for better gaming.
