Additional Comments: Just a simple gaming computer that will be usable for many years. I got almost 5 years out of my current rig so I would like to get that out of something new as well. Based on the case I am not sure if I need to order additional fans or not? ALso, I had posted about a new build about a month ago but I was encouraged to wait until the 7970 card came out to make my build... so I have incorporated it here.
Processor: Intel 2600k
PSU: Corsair Professional Series Gold 850-Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified High-Performance Power Supply - CMPSU-850AX
Graphics Card: VisionTek Products Radeon 7970 3 GB DDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Cards 900491 (I like this one because of the limited lifetime warranty as opposed to some 3 or 5 year warranties from other cards)
Case: Corsair CC600TWM-WHT Special Edition Graphite Series 600T Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case - White
The total comes to Just a hair over $2000 on Amazon... plus free shipping and no tax. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
