HI everyone. Posted this in the wrong forum, so I'm reposting here. Sorry about that.
I'm about to build a new rig. I have about 1100.00 - 1200.00 bucks (U.S) to build it. I have all the basic stuff, keyboard, mouse, monitor (1920x1080), 3TB drive, DVD, etc. I'm looking for input on what I've picked out for the meat and potatoes of the rig. Is there something you would change or do differently. I would prefer Intel right now, cause AMD doesn't offer anything A.T.M. for me.
It's going to be a gaming computer 80%, web serf 10% and I'll be watching movies/TV shows on it the rest of the time. Probably hooking it up to my 42 inch flat screen for the movies. I need to last about 5 years. Right now I play Skyrim, Mass Effect, SWTOR, etc. I see what I have picked out as being upgradable for a while. I'll probably mildly overclock it.
I'm going to use just one video card A.T.M. I can always get another one later on.
This is what I have picked out. I can't go over the 1200.00 mark. The one thing I see in this build that I might be able to do better is the memory, possibly. I like it's timings but I'm kind of concerned with the clearance between it and the CPU cooler. I'm looking at what you all might suggest to change, or if you think something might be better. I'm not totally sold on the SSD right now, I could do without it. That's just a bling item A.T.M.
Here's the build. What do you think? I don't need it to blow the doors off the house, I just want it to run smooth and be upgradable with decent FPS.
