Hey just starting to get into IT and been doing bit of studies in Hardware,
so as an exercise I went to www.msy.com.au and made a computer build.
Its what I would buy currently if I had an extra $1,200 sitting around =P
Just wondering what views might change to make it more affordable without loss of grunt.
Its meant to be Gaming PC that can keep out with the Times for the next few years.
I might also have over killed something... Learning Curve =)
Processor is perfect, RAM is perfect in size, Graphics card is good, SSD... I don't know about that one, so it may be good, case is good, PSU is good, but more power than what you need. However, if you where to upgrade in the future with top end graphic cards, you'll be set. Fan is good, wireless card is okay, HDD is good but prices will drop in 6 months. Blu-ray is good, extra RAM is overkill for gaming, graphics card for SLI is good.
Honestly, I wouldn't change anything. Well, I would change a few things to better suit my needs and education on hardware, naturally. But what you have selected would make a relatively high end gaming machine.
Not necessarily. I've seen people push DDR3-2133 RAM on that processor. But it is overkill in terms of speed in what you'll see. I'm not against it by the way. Just do some research via Google, or even here in the proper forum area.
