Hey, I'm new to this forum. I recently have been considering purchasing a new system. I want to connect it to a 27" monitor which I have. Therefore, the native resolution of games would be 2560x1440, I was just wondering if I would encounter any issues with the following specs:
This is basically a prebuild from http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/INTEL-Core-i7-2600-GAMING-CO... with the H67 altered to a Z68. I have never built a PC before but from what I gather I could save some money. If you really would like to help, I'd love if you could help find the best prices for such a system. However I would like an i7 CPU . Thanks for your quick response
HDD are a crap shoot with prices. You have to pick the size you want and a few brands and watch prices here. I am not even including one in my newest build, just using a 128GB SSD until prices come back down.
Thanks for your help. Did a bit of research and found that the 6950 is more an excellent card for high resolutions, due to its memory. Turns out the cost of the prebuilt off ebay is the same as your suggested build (+an SSD), with the addition of the i7 2600k over the i5 2500k. So for once, I think a prebuild may actually be a better option. Thank you for your help!
