Hello all, I am new to the community. I currently have an Asus G73 for my gaming needs. It just hit me, that this is nowhere near the performance I need, especially for the price I have paid for this guy. I am planning on selling the G73, and switching over to a performance desktop setup. Now, I have done some research and picked the parts that I figure would work out for me within my budget. I am very new to PC building, so any suggestions and alternative solutions would be greatly appreciated!
Case- Antec Nine Hundred Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window Mid-Tower (Need enough space for support tower size / $99)
HDD- Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s ($59.99)
So, I am actually already running on my new system. I changed up a few things. I decided to keep the video card as a GTX 570 for personal reasons that I would never even figure out. I did switch the HDD to the Samsung F3. I also added an Intel 320 120GB SSD as a boot drive and daily use software. I stuck with the H60, and am happy with it. I switched my mobo over to the Asus P8P67. As for the case, I went with the Antec 902 v3.
I don't regret my decision, and am very happy with my current setup. The only thing I have done so far is OC my 2500k to 4.8Ghz and Prime95'd it for around 3 1/2 hours stable. I am also going to OC my 570 to SC speeds.
