Hey guys as the title suggested I am ready to buy the components to my first gaming pc, but would like some approval first I am 16 so its taken me a while to save up, but the budget is around £1000. It will be used mainly for gaming and movies.
CPU: i5 2500K
Mobo: Asrock Z68 Pro 3
RAM: G-Skill 8Gb DDR3 1600MHz Sniper Memory
PSU: Antec TruePower New 750W Modular
Hard Drive: Seagate 1Tb Barracuda 6Gbps
Optical Drive: Liteon DVD RW 24x
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (OEM??)
Graphics Card: MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC
Sound Card: Asus Xonar DX 7.1
Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced
Keyboard: Cyborg V7
Mouse: Cyborg V3
Speakers: Logitech Z506
Is everything compatible and are they good enough? I'm hoping eventually to go SLI with the gtx. Also is a sound card a necessary expense?
Thanks in advance.
(also i'm new to this site so sorry if i did these in the wrong order or anything)
Yes you would be able to over clock and everything else looks great I would also get a CPU cooler for when you overclock the Hyper 212+ or 212EVO are good options very reliable and a lot of members on the forums will back them
Eh dont worry about what section it is in the mods will fix it if they want to. Also what Sam says is true I wanted to give you headroom for SLI possibility but if you never intend to do it then yes get a smaller PSU around the 500W area (dont want to go too low)
I would spend a little more if it meant i could save in the future if you know what I mean, I'd like everything to be fairly futureproof without putting me in debt for the rest of my life (I have university fees for that ) How will the current config run high-res games?
I think i will get that motherboard so i can upgrade in the future thanks, is asrock the best choice?
dan2222 I will get a blu ray player, but i was planning on getting it later on for budget reasons, and I haven't considered 3d monitors, would you recommend them? I can imagine the kits for them are fairly expensive.
I was planning on eventually on upgrading to 2 screens
