Hello everyone, I am looking to build my first Gaming PC. I have never built a computer before so im just going off of some research I have done myself. Would really apreciate any Input and advice you all have.
Approximate Purchase Date: Feb - march most likely
Budget Range: $1000 -$1100
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, web browsing
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com but anything will work I suppose.
Parts Preferences: I am pretty much set on the i5-2500k and some type of the Geforce GTX 560. Also a moniter 21- 24 inch.
Overclocking: Maybe depends if it is easy enough and worth it.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 is the good standard now yes?
Additional Comments: I am looking to get the best build for the price range im looking in. This will be a gaming computer that I hope to be able to use for at least 4 years to come and hopefully upgrade later on if I must.
I have some idea on what parts I would like and have put together a list. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated from everyone, would also like to know if there is anything else to shave down and some suggestions on the moniter and case selection. I am open to change anything though as I do not entirely know what I am doing.
You have chosen good parts there natey!
1. I agree, without SLI plan, an 750W PSU is way an overkill you will need only somewhere between 550-650W. You can save a bit of money here.
2. You might want an SSD to come along in your new PC. Let say Crucial m4, Samsung 810 or Intel You will really like the SSD, I guarantee
3. You might also consider to get a BR-Burner too
Thank you very much fr your input, I decided to go with a 650W CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650. I figure I will have a good amount of power for later on if I need to upgrade. What does the SSD Drive do exactly? Is it just an extra/ faster HD basicly?
well you need it as where you install your OS, so if getting it later means you need to reinstall everything (OS) at least and then install games on that SSD, just put the games you normally play, in my case i have BF3, MW3, Hon,Lol, scII then my OS
