Hey guys, this website seems awesome for computer advice so I decided to ask for some advice on a new gaming system that I want to build. I built my current rig that decent parts, so I do have experience, but I want an upgrade to play future games.
Approximate Purchase Date: In 1-2 weeks
Budget Range: ~$500-700 after tax and shipping, and before rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, FPS games), multitasking.
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca, ncix.com, tigerdirect.ca
Country of Origin: Canada
Parts Preferences: AMD or Intel is fine. Would like a good case. Not really looking for a lot of upgradeability; definitely want this to last without upgrading.
SLI or Crossfire: Preferably no.
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, 24" monitor
Additional Comments: From Canada so I'm only going to buy from canadian sites/stores. I'm looking for a fast overall computer in general mostly for gaming. Thanks for the help!
don't get an gtx 560 fermi, it is leagues behind the 6950,
you can ggo with the rosevil challenger case too if you want.
^ I'm confused at what you mean. The GTX 560 no Ti is competing with the 6870 and it is on par if not better. The 560 Ti is competing with the 6950 and both are comparable with the 560 Ti running cooler and quieter most of the time. He doesn't even need more than 550w since he's not going to need heavy graphics.
huh., ^ you specified a gtx fermi and not ti version, you editted your post, clever. ;D
? I didn't really edit it. I did always specify 560 no TI since many people get them mixed up.
