My computer crapped out a couple days ago and is not worth salvaging. I've been doing some speed research and this is what I've come up with. I'm looking for a solid gaming rig that is fairly future proof. Just wondering if anything should be switched out or if I've missed some compatiblilty issues. I am planning on overclocking the CPU/GPU.
Thanks for all the input guys. I'll definitely be using the suggestions for ram and psu. I read up a bit more on my GPU selection and realized I probably won't have use for a 2gb card (res will only be 1920x1200), so gonna stay with nVidia It is now between these two and I'm wondering if the difference I'll see is worth the extra cash. The games I'll be playing are SWTOR, Skyrim, BF3, and others.
