Hi guys, I am a noob at building PCs and I wanted to upgrade mine. I have saved for a long time and I need some advice before I decide to spend all that money. This will include two monitors.
Approximate Purchase Date: this weekend or next weekend
Budget Range: $3,000-$3,100
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming ( I play Skyrim, FSX, WoW, BF3 and others)
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, 1x HDD ( I do want to get an SSD and another HDD though, and the current one is a WD Caviar Green 500GB)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: scan.co.uk , aria.co.uk , and ebuyer.com (UK Site) are all ok
Country: United K. (Britain)
Parts Preferences: by brand or type : I would like to have dual monitors. I would also like an Intel CPu and probs the new 7970. I like the looks of the Tt LEvel 10 GT case
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 X2
Additional Comments: I can't go over budget. Reminder this PC includes 2 mons.
Current parts are:
