Hello, I wanted to get a little feed back on this planned build I have for playing Starcraft II on High/Ultra graphical settings. Any feedback would be great, thank you for reading my potential build.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within end of Summer or beginning of Fall 2011.
Budget Range: Not really sure now. Definitely under $700, but minimum would probably be $500.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mainly gaming (SC2 on High/Ultra settings), Usual web browsing, and minor uses of Photoshop.
Parts Not Required: Have a eVGA nVidia 9800GTX+, Reusing OCZ 700W PSU. No need for other parts yet, but anything recommended would be great.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com or any preferred reputable website.
Country of Origin: United States.
Parts Preferences: Preferably what is compatible with my current parts (9800GTX+ and OCZ 700W). I have been an Intel user all my life so I have a little biased towards them. Will to try AMD though, whatever is recommended.
SLI or Crossfire: Slight Possibility (Most likely not).
Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 or Higher.
Additional Comments: None, just would like to keep in budget range. Planning to get a Bitfenix Shinobi Case, not sure though.
Note: If you are buying late summer/ early fall watch out for deals, you can get stuff for extremely cheap if you see them on sale and order them, no need to order at the same time.
Note 2: You can go with this MoBo: ASUS M5A99X ($155) and supports SLI/Crossfire in the future http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Total w/ the ASUS MoBo: $674
