I'm looking to build a good all around pc that will primarily be used for mmorpg gaming, but also a little bit of everything else. I'm hoping to have a somewhat future proof computer that I'll be able to upgrade and still be happy with 4 years from now. (hence the empty ram slots and room to SLI or CF in the future)
Im looking for feedback on A. does everything I've picked out actually work together and B. any areas Im gunna cause a bottleneck or I am spending too much money. My budget was $1200, but i forgot to factor in the OS so my new budget is $1400ish. I already have an LG IPS236 23inch monitor.
Also, I should point out, I've just been picking my parts so far, havent done any shopping around to find the best deals yet, or look for any combos.
After many hours of reading/watching reviews heres what I've come up with for my first build (or should I just copy one of the budget builds from this forum...)
I don't know what your logic is in buying a blu-ray drive, but you might want to just skip it. Technology to play blu-ray disks on a computer is very poor right now because of drm and other annoyances. One day games might come on blu-ray, but dvd/cd writers are $20 so you might want to wait a year or two until the brice of blu-ray drives comes down and they're more useful.
