its the last few bits i want to get right,mobo,card and cpu,
my minds been changed from a AMD phenom 11 965 to a i3 2100
will it be worth steping up on my cpu to the next stage or will a i3 be good for me?. there will be no o/c, will the card i picked go with the board i dont want to bottleneck things. think i covered all so ill leave it to you guys,and ill be happy to take other options, remember i have all apart from mobo,card,cpu, my max cost is £800
Unless you have some burning desire for that case, your wayyyy overspending. Get yourself a decent mid-Tower ATX for around £50 and pump that extra £60 into getting the next level GPU (6970 or GTX 570).
i had the case for the fans and the airflow,as i can put some stupid hours in gaming some times 16hrs + aday, ok maybe alittle over kill but still i think it would do the job,(plus i have it allready) as for the bits i had joined 1 site (e-buyer)and they seemed to have all that i needed and the cheepest, so i just stayed with them,like i say i have all the bits apart from the mobo,card,and cpu
Get the case you want, dont buy a cheaper case then regret it each time you look at the case.
I did quite clearly say "Unless you have some burning desire for that case".
You would be amazed how many people think they need to buy a FULL Tower case for a standard build. Full towers are generally aimed towards watercooling and e-ATX motherboard sized builds. Just putting the facts out there.
ive been thinking and reading on forams that i might need to upgrade from the i3 to an i5 im not going to o/c so i wont need the k version i waiting for bf3 to come out and i want to run it on medium-max settings will this set up run bf3 and future games ?
so the i3 wont run with the 6950 card smoothly ? i know the i3 2100 is the min for gaming but i want to run them without loss of performance, thats why im thinking of the i5 and a 6950 card, im currently useing ebuyer for parts so if you could link a i5 along with a good mobo thks
