In my actual build I put some ideas that I had as well as thoughts of ideas for some of you to help me with if you don't mind
Approximate Purchase Date: Probably the next few days/week.
Budget Range: I’d like to not go over 1500 I think.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming being all I mostly care about, I will use my 2nd monitor to browse the internet while gaming and I’d like it to not hinder performance if possible.
Parts Not Required: I’m think about getting a new mouse, I’ve used this Microsoft intellipoint mouse for literally 12 years, I may buy a naga. We can ignore mouse/keyboard though.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I live near a tigerdirect, but mostly I buy from newegg
Country of Origin: United States
Parts Preferences: Intel def and for obvious reasons at this time. GFX wise, I would have said only Nvidia (I had a bad ATI experience awhile back…_) I’m open to whatever now though.
Overclocking: Yes definitely
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: Current monitor is 1680x1050, but I’ll buy a new one….Is 1920 x1080 worth it?!
Additional Comments: Semi Quiet would be pref, my current computer is pretty quiet. ---A silly request but, maybe possible to find a case that my cats can’t jump on and turn the power off. My case’ power button is pretty hard to hit for their paws….I know this is silly, and its not a big deal…Just saying!
3) Graphics Card:
a) Radeon 6950
b) Geforce 560 ti
c) I'm thinking that one of these two are amazing for their price and both have solid reviews.
a) Havnt thought about this, not sure what is best. It will depend on my motherboard a lot and I know I want atleast 8gigs.
5) Power Supply:
a) No idea?! Depends on all the rest Im sure
a) I want a case that is pretty good, not something really expensive, because the one I have now is really awesome. (Antec 900, and its only 100 bucks) ---I was wondering about the dust treys some come with, do they help a lot? Ive never had one before so Im not sure. Also Id like something pretty quiet as well.
a) A good one is preferred but I'm sure that's really standard now? 1tb atleast
a) I definitely want one to atleast have room for my Operating System, and maybe a game/two? What would you recommend?
