Additional Comments: This is my first time building a computer and I'm looking to build a solid gaming computer that will last a while. Also want the ability to upgrade GPU and CPU when deemed nessesary. Also no CPU heatsink is included as I will not be trying to OC my cpu right away. I still need to do some research as I am also new to trying to OC. Also do you think that video card is able to run most games on high video settings? And if not what would you recommend around same maybe a little higher price range.
Alright thanks for the recommendation on the PSU. Also I'll go a bit above budget if I have to on a video card. I was planning on upgrading to a new 7xxx card once they come out. Was looking for something that would fill the spot with decent settings for now. Thats why I had chosen the i5 2500k, because I figured that cpu would last me much longer and out perform better than any other could for some time to come. What are your thoughts on doing that?
If I was to go SLI or Crossfire and also OC my cpu, how many watts would my PSU need to be 650 or more? And is SLI or CrossFire really worth it? I'm still trying not to spend too much so whats the best video card I could fit in at 200 or less?
