Hi this is my first time posting and my first time building my own PC. I really came into this having no idea what was what in a computer but I've spent quite a lot of time reading around and I think I now have enough basic knowledge to accomplish this task.
Anyway the computer I am trying to assemble will be used purely for Gaming, nothing else just Games from offline to online pretty much every type of game you can imagine. My budget to accomplish this is well unlimited, the only exceptions is that the parts must be available for the UK apart from that I'm willing to spend a lot of money.
So far I've come up with this:
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advance ATX Full Tower Case $159.99
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Black Edition ROG Motherboard $599.99
CPU: Intel Core i7-990X $999.99
RAM: Corsair CMZ12GX3M3A2000C10 Vengeance Desktop Memory Kit $224.99
Hard Drive: Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 Hard Drive $59.99
Hard Drive 2: Intel 510 Series (SSD) $284.49
Cooling: Corsair CWCH70 Hydro Series H70 CPU Liquid Cooler $108.99
That's around $2,500 but I'm still missing a few things which leads me to my questions:
What is the best combination of Graphics Cards? This motherboard supports both Crossfirex and SLI so I'm not sure and this part is the most important.
Do I need a better power supply? If so which one?
Can I used two SSDs to store everything on? They seem to have a lower memory so I thought I'd need a HDD as well but I'm quite confused on this part.
Is there some essentials I've forgot about?
Is there anything that can be improved on the stuff I've already posted?
And the main question is, will all this actually work?
Sorry for the late reply, I don't know about that specific monitor but I will use your advice and buy more than one. The monitor and speaker system were the only two things I thought I had enough knowledge on to pick myself =P.
As far as OC goes, I assume that's Overclocking, I have never done it before but I would like to push it as far as I should go.
for gaming i think 4.2-4.7 ghz is good (i actually think 4.5 is overkill). you can go up to 4.4ghz without touching the voltage and just turning up the cpu multiplier to 44x. that is the easy way overclock.
