Im about to build a gaming rig in about a month and I need some input on the components I chose. Maybe if there is some things I can upgrade to be cheaper or things I can upgrade that are a little more (which i dont mind). Components I plan to buy at Newegg:
And thats it so far, I'm open to upgrades/cheaper things but I prefer Intel and Nvidia GPU's. My main things I will be doing with this build is gaming on Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, and other major games. Thanks! any input is really helpfull
I'd spend another $15 and get the WS Revolution ..... the NF200 chip gives full x16 x16 GFX bandwidth (as opposed to x8 x8) and while it doesn't affect average FPS to a great extent in most games, the impact on minimum fps is more pronounced.....however in some games (i.e. STALKER, the increase can be as great as 10%.
The Barracuda XT is a fantastic drive .... the Barracuda w/o the XT, not so much.
I was in love with the idea of the 560-448 pre-release....but at that price, I can't make a case for it. And as a limited edition product, gonna be real hard to find a 2nd one when ya wanna SLI. I'd get two of these instead which will give ya about 50-60% more fps than the single 560-448 ....and 40% more (for $40 less) than a single 580
