I have saved what I think is a decent amount for a Gaming pc. I'd like for it to be as future proof as possible seeing as it's expensive to build new pc's. So I'm asking you all to help with your knowledge and experience to build me a pc of such quality. I'd do it myself but it's my first build and I want it to be as close to perfect as it can be.
I'd like to stay on one monitor at well i'm not sure what resolution.
Sli/Crossfire i don't know to be honest that's why I'm here asking.
I don't need a keyboard or mouse I already bought some Razor products.
There is also a used Smilodon ( I think that's what it's called) case with a 550w? Psu i can get for free. If I need better please say so.
Gaming and casual browsing is the only thing i will use it for.
Here is where the plot thickens. I was thinking about helping my buddy by buying him a new mobo/pcu/gfx card/ram since he's the one who wants me to play with him and he's in a bit of a rough spot. He's using some old E-machine. Is there anyway to build me a great gaming pc and still help him out with future games? If not I can always help him out later. Primarily I just want to have little to no issues running games for the next few years.
I appreciate your time and opinions and await your comments.
Oh I see. So the dual 580's would be the better choice if and when i needed to get a second.
Yep...if you plan on adding another one later on. A lot of people plan on adding a second card later on but don't for one reason or another. You can't go wrong imo either way. Two now or one big one now and add another one later.
