Anything that will basically let me play skyim on ultra/high settings and crysis on high/ultra, and CoD.
Just to max out games pretty much
Overclocking: Yes /
SLI or Crossfire:Maybe in the future... I have a small overview of what this is so if someone could explain
Monitor Resolution: Im on a vizio 32 inch... So whatever that would be... would I need an HDMI to connect it all?
I would definitely recommend getting a 64 gig or 120 gig solid state, and using the 1 TB as a backup. If you are going to play Skyrim, a Solid state would increase performance quite noticeably. If thats too expensive, then perhaps a 10k rpm drive. Skyrim isn't internet based, so since its going to be a system based game and not lag city like WoW, hard drives play an important role.
I am using an Intel 510 Elmcrest 120gig and I have near instant load times. Its the best upgrade you can possibly buy for anything...and Windows 7 Trim helps, along with Intels Toolbox which tracks and keeps the drive in tip top shape.
