Solved

I can't decide!!!

Hey guys so after many days i would say weeks but its only been a week :p
so I having a hard time choosing what parts to buy. I know i want to buy a good gaming computer
but there are so many choices so i came here :D
should i get a really good gaming computer to future proof myself ( im really lazy :na: )
or should i get a low-budget gaming computer and upgrade later <------------------- dont pick this option.... jk :lol:
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
AMD or Intel: I was planning on AMD since its cheaper and very reliable but many people say Intel is very good for gaming (preferably 2500K )
^---------^

GPU: I was going for the 6950s but people also say the 560s are good too. so which one or neither :lol:

Motherboard: this depends on what cpu im choosing so i guess ill wait and see.... unless you guys want to recommend a good Intel/AMD board?

I think the rest of the build i pretty much have it covered but if you have any suggestions please tell me!

  1. You should wait for the Bulldozer and 7XXX series to come out if you can wait a month or 2. They'll probably cause price drops and help you save money. But if you can't, you should get a gtx 570 as it is one of the best graphics cards in the market but if you can't afford it, the 6950 is best for peformance per dollar. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html As for the cpu, waiting for the bulldozers is a good choice because Intel will finally have competition against their Sandy Bridge CPU's as the Bulldozers have a good chance of at LEAST matching the i5 2500k and beating it in price and that will cause a price drop in practically the entire CPU market. The case, if you want a good looking case, then get an AZZA case they have beastly LEDS cases for low prices. For the mobo, get a Gigabyte 990FX if your going for AMD and a Gigabyte Z68X will work great for Intel.

    I cant thank you enough for at least caring :love:
    But I dont know if i CAN wait im a very impatient person
    but i guess good comes to those who wait
    anyways, do you know exactly when "bulldozer comes out"
    cause while everybody is playing all the new games ill be stuck here deciding if i should wait or not :(

    I kinda did give up on xbox to switch to pc gaming
    so thanks if you reply ;)

    thanks thats not very far away :D
    but it'll take 6 weeks for me to get my dough :(

    @ScrewySqrl what do you think?
    do you think i should wait for bulldozer or should i buy my parts now?
  5. They're already delivering some Bulldozer models , so the Oct 12 release is credible

    if you have to wait 6 weeks anyway, sure, go ahead and wait
  8. Best answer
    waiting for bulldozer to come out is like waiting for duke nukum forever to come out which just happed close to 10 years later and even if it does come out it may only be a small percentage better then an i7 anyway
