Overclocking: Overclocking CPU for sure, everything else... maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (depends on the new gpu lineups)
Monitor Resolution: Probably 1900x1080 or 1900x1200 (is 1200 worth it?)
Additional Comments: I'm looking to build a gaming computer that is going to run all of today's games at the highest settings and hopefully be quite future-proofed for about 2 years.
I have everything except the Monitor and HDD picked out so far and I'd like some people here to check to see if it's worth the money or if there something I've missed, or ... hopefully something better for cheaper.
Thanks in advance for all advice, tips, and suggestions.
Absolutely all help is appreciated! Preferably help that will save me money without sacrificing performance haha
Is a 1900x1200 really that much better than a 1900x1080?
I'm also wondering if a 50$ sound card is worth it for gaming??? what do you think? Which is the best?
Thanks for the response, I do have a question... why the crucial m4 over the mushkin?
It has slower read/write (especially write)
The SandForce controllers the Mushkin has isn't as stable as the controller found in the Crucial M4.
They have stability and failure issues (though it may not be as significant as an issue it use to be).
You really won't notice the difference in performance.
It's really peace of mind, but you can't really go wrong with either one.
The Mushkin seems promising though, so never mind the SSD suggestion.
