Hi, I'm going to build my own PC soon, I will use it mostly for gaming and surfing the web. As this is my first "real" PC I don't know much about which parts are better or what, but I have done some research and I have come out with this two builds that are around the same price:
The games that I would play are StarCraft2, The Witcher 2, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, Call of Duty 4, and stuff like that at a resolution of 1920x1080. So I would really appreciate it if someone could help me choosing between these two.
as striker indicated in your other thread, the best solution is a combination of the 2.
an i5-2500k + 2x 6950's is the best way to spend $1250.
Now would be a great time to buy ram. Gskill ram is extremely cheap right now and there is 15% off all desktop memory with promo code DM15JN11US. You can therefore purchase 8gb 1600mhz cas8 ram for $64. its a no brainer for either build: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Two 570's are overkill unless you got money to burn.
It might be at the time being but how I live in Mexico it's not easy for me to get the parts at a reasonable price. So I want this PC to be able to run most games that are coming out the next year or two at least at high settings =P
