I've Priced out and "assembled" a computer, at least in idea.
Just hoping that there is no logical fallacies or any problems I might run into on putting it together with the components I've chosen. Please feel free to Question All choices.
All peices the best price I've found (within reason due to Changes in S&H with other companies or other companies not having what I'm looking for.) have been with Tigerdirect.ca
It's not the cost of the components I'm worried about, just the components working together.
Primary use: Gaming, General internet Surfing. Possibly a Second monitor for General PDF/Firefox Reading use during gaming. (P.S. I'm not a gamer that always needs to be BEST GRAPHICS GAME OFFERS POSSIBLE. I'd just like to be able to run some newer games at higher graphics that Lowest)
Case: Cooler Master RC-932-KKN5-GP HAF 932 Advance Full Tower Case - ATX, Black, SuperSpeed USB 3.0
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe
Intel Z68 Motherboard - ATX, Socket H2 (LGA1155), Intel Z68 Express, 2200MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, 8-CH Audio, Dual Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, CrossFireX/SLI Ready, Bluetooth
Hi! I would change a few things around, such as your motherboard. It costs $270, which is extremely expensive for a motherboard. In these days a motherboard is just a "docking station" for all the components of your PC, so I would get something that is around $125-$150, since they will do the same job and have similar quality. You can go with something like the MSI Z68A-G43 (B3) . With the money you saved, you could buy another gtx 560 for a little more money
I get what your saying. PSU is Probally Overkill.
I'll look around for something more suitable. though I like the Idea of the Modular Models...Less cords sticking everywhere.
as for the 16gigs ram. I forgot to mention that I'm getting 16gigs for a ...well good reason imho.
Ram is always the first thing that dies on me. Every single computer I've owned. So I decieded I'm going to buy 8 worth to install and 8 for backup (or possibly my brothers computer which can use it to should he have ram issues)
Not to mention it's always there if I ever need more ram...
The reasons I chose the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe is: I was actually intrested in some of the features it offers that other cards don't seem to, or at least advertise they do.
Like... Smart Response Technology, Lucidlogix virtu, BT Go!
Would getting a second videocard (SLI?) Be that much of a upgrade it's pointedly worth it? (To my poor understanding, the Second card isn't touched unless the first one is being run over a certain level..which seems kinda redundant to me)
I'm hoping to be able to just lightly upgrade this thing for a least a decade instead of buying a whole new system again.'
On a funny note. Pulling up the Asrock MotherBoard. it suggests to me to get the most out of it is to buy a better motherboard..*facepalm* nice show newegg.
