Hello everyone, I am in need of your expert advice on building my teenage kids a Gaming Rig..Mostly they play Amnesia, minecraft and produce videos with sony vegas. They currently use my ASUS G51 laptop and its accumulating alot of apps and games that are slowing down the system.
Approximate Purchase Date: Nov or before Xmas
Budget Range: under $600
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, movies, video production
Parts Not Required: Windows7,monitor(samsung P2370hd),keyboard &mouse, case kinda??
Additional Comments: OC or SLI might not be necessary but I would like for it to last them atleast 2-3yrs before I have to upgrade the parts again. Also are all these parts compatible and will it fit the case? I just want to make sure the PSU will fit and MOBO and GPU...
This is what I have so far on newegg...Please feel free to suggest other combo if needed.Thanks
Don't use an i3-2100 for a gaming system, that's more for low budget workstation builds, and that sort of thing. Check out this configuration. It's a little bit more but it'll last you quite a long time:
