System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Basic school work, surfing the web and watching streams.
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, OS.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Microcenter.
Country of Origin: U.S. New Jersey (Sales Tax Applies!)
Parts Preferences: Intel/Nvidia.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes, by this Christmas.
Monitor Resolution: Using a 19 inch Dynex T.V. so not sure. Could anyone figure that out for me?
Additional Comments: I'd like the build to run games like WoW, Skyrim, Mount and Blade, some RTS's, and possibly games like BF3 on high or max without it sounding like a jet is in the room and with good fps. I'm using an HDMI cable to hook it up to my T.V. to use as a monitor until I get more money to buy one.
Here is the added bonus. My build from Microcenter is below BUT I called up and they often times can pricematch Newegg! So if anyone can build a better Newegg build than this for cheaper please let me know! Remember, I have sales tax even from Newegg! Otherwise let me know how my final build works and if you'd change anything.
Well that's good news =D I'll probably upgrade the monitor for Christmas or soon thereafter. I'm pretty sure it will run well at even high resolutions =)
Anyone see anything else to change or a way to save some cash?
You could check out my build guide here just for some suggestions. Your build looks very good though for your resolution. Here's some of my suggestions (Go to the $850 build) http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
Looks very much like my build, so that I'm happy about =D So then you think I should go ahead and get mine then? I may get an SSD for X-mas, and I'm pretty sure I should be able to run games on even higher resolutions =)
Could anyone direct me to a decent PSU from Microcenter? Knowing that I may go SLI in the future, would the 650w PSU I have be enough or would I need to go 750w?
