(tried to move this post from cpu to prebuit but didnt found it that's why i now copied it into here)
hey guys i'm going to build a new pc very soon. I don't game alot but i will be playing some call of duty black ops so now and than and every evening a few h of wow.
i do watch alot of movies in full hd and i unpack alot of archives with winrar.
i like to do the following things:
-call of duty black ops so now and than and WOW
-good winrar unpacking
-full hd movies
-video converting (most of the time avi-jpeg or wmv-divx)
-i will be using 2 screens (dvi outputs)
-youtube/internet pages always open and also movies are most of the time always open and some times photoshop/ world of warcraft all active at the same time.
i'm not willing to spend alot of money because i don't want anything special but i want a system that will not lagg alot. games do not have to run on the highest settings but it would be nice.
Not sure I'd spend the extra to get the 6 core vs. quad. How ofter do you encode, and can you find an encoder that uses your video card (GPU cycles) instead of CPU?
The video card is another matter. The 6750 to 6770 upgrade (absolutely). The 6750 to 6850 upgrade depends on monitor size. ("i will be using 2 screens (dvi outputs) ") what resolution will you be running when gaming? If 1920 or higher you need better video else stay with 6770.
