Right now I'm selecting parts for a build that I will do. I will be using this build for gaming (mostly), video editing (some, not alot), and everything else (web surfing, school work, etc.). The parts include:
- Cooler Master Storm Sniper Black Edition - GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel i5-2500K 3.3 GHz Quad-Core - Cooler Master v8 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - MSI GeForce GTX 560 TI Twin Frozr II/OC 1GB - Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 Memory - OCZ ZX Series 850W Fully Modular 80Plus Gold High Performance Power Supply - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32MB Cache HDD (Main Storage) - Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 90GB SATA III SSD (Boot Drive) - Rosewill RNX-N180PCE PCIe Wireless Adapter 300Mb/s - ASUS DVD/CD Burner Combo Drive - SABRENT 68-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal Card Reader w/ USB 2.0 port
Now I have a few questions about something's: 1) Should I SLI the MSI GTX 560 TI? I will be running a minimum of 2 Monitors, I havent decided if I'll be doing 3 monitors or not. I do realize if I do 3 monitors I will need to SLI (I do not want to use the integrated video in my CPU) but I was wondering If I should go ahead and do it.
2) Is this a good selection of parts? This will be my first build and I want advice from a wide range of people
Feel free to suggest anything like changes to the selection, additions, etc. Thanks for the help guys!
More aboutneed advice build
the resolution of the monitors is critical in helping decide the graphics power of a gaming computer
Without that information any answers will be guesses
I don't fully understand what your asking, are you asking what monitors I will be using? Or what resolution I will have them at?
