First and foremost this is my first ever build. My questions regarding this build that I am looking into is that for a grand total of $1361(excluding costs for monitors, keyboard, OS) is this computer worth it? I did much research and I believe it is definitely compatible as far as the parts go. I also did research on the parts themselves to see if they had good reviews and they all seemed to have great consumer reviews on newegg/forums. Another question I have is, are any of the parts going to in essence become the bottleneck, holding back the rest of the parts from reaching their potential?
One tough decision I had was the MOBO. I was deciding between the Asrock Z68 and the Asrock P67. I figured because I am not going to be utilizing an SSD for awhile, the Z68 probably did not hold anything more in terms of value for me except another $100 on the price tag. While I'm speaking on SSDs, I saw that a lot of people used them for boot drives which does not really help me as I don't intend on rebooting often. But then again will using an SSD improve my gameplay (i.e. make the game run smoother or faster)
As far as the GPU goes this was probably my hardest decision because I found that their were just so many of them I didn't know where to go. Eyefinity or Nvidia Surround? EVGA or Sapphire? Hell if I know. I saw reviews on the GTX 560 Ti, and they were good as well as the price for two of them didn't make me cringe, as many of the others did. I am planning on running 3 monitors and kind of wanted to run some sort of SLI/Crossfire so I figured this was a decent route to take. But I'm not sure if two of these are going to offer a good picture across 3 monitors.
In conclusion, if anyone can give tips or advice on whether or not this build will be viable for future upgrades and work efficiently, I would appreciate it so much. Also if you think that I should swap a part for something else for performance purposes or upgrade ability please do say. Before I forget are there any wires or accesories I need to include to put this thing together? Thanks for your time and consideration.
Ok, well if I upgrade to the 570 2.5gb SLI setup. I guess my next question is will the monitors I'm buying do justice to the GPUs, as well as will the rest of my components. Will the PSU be able to push this?
I thought I had a good plan but I keep getting more and more indecisive lol. I guess when it comes to deciding what to get it comes down to what is going to have the best performance. Will the two o/c 560s perform as well as the 2 570s? And if not is the difference worth $240? Again thx for all help!
I mean damn should I just all together scrap the surround part of the build go with a 27" monitor thus saving $200-$250 and use that to upgrade the mobo etc., and relieve the price of getting the two 570s, which at this point I can go down to the 1.25gb version and save another $120 dollars roughly. Also thinking about it would it be worth it to say "F" the 570s i just cut off $200 from the monitors I can just take that and run SLI 580s. I feel like there are so many options i just have no experience in this so it is hard to pull the trigger.
