Hi everyone, first time poster here. I'm looking for some advice on compatibility and price effectiveness of the build I'm setting up for gaming.
Approximate Purchase Date: this week
Budget Range: $800-$900
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming. I intend on playing Battlefield 3 and SWTOR.
Parts Not Required: monitor, keyboard, mouse, hard drive, OS, speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Country of Origin: United States
Parts Preferences: Intel cpu, asrock mobo, inwin case
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: basically I would like to rest assured that the parts I've selected are compatible and not cheaper from other sources, or have alternatives that could be more efficient, future-proof or cost effective. Also, If I crossfire 6870s, would I need a bigger PSU?
The only reason I am suggesting this one is because it is on sale with free shipping , so you could get an 850w power supply for $119.99. Also be advised that on that motherboard the third Pci-e slot is only a X4 slot and if you use both of the others in crossfire or sli they drop down to X8.
