Hey guys like the title said I am going to be building my own system in antipicipation of Diablo 3 . If you guys could let me know if my specs all look compatible that would be amazing. And also if you have any info on if this setup will be able to run everything on max settings that would be greatly appreciated!
A couple other questions I have:
1) Would the i5 2320 have much a difference on my experience compared to the i3 2120, it would only be a $50 difference to go with the i5 compared to the i3? ( I do like to listen to music while I game)
2) Will all the parts I listed fit into the Mid tower i have selected? ( A friend of mine said I should buy a full case because of the space needed)
CPU-Intel i5 2320 or Intel i3 2120
MOBO- MSI H61M-E33
Ram- 8 GB 2x4 GB Corsair Dominator
HDD- Western Digital Caviar Blue 640 GB 7200rpm
Disk drive- SONY Black 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM
OS- Windows 7
And here is a link to the tower that comes with a 500w power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thanks so much for your time everyone! I just really want to do this right and not make any mistakes that I will feel like *** about.
imho for your gpu i would go for the 570 gtx or higher and upgrade your psu to a 700-850w just for later upgrades with psu. I have a 460 gtx and its a decent card but doesnt pull the fps i would like in bf3, skyrim, wow, and tor. and even with d3 beta it wasnt up to par =P
Would I need anything else or does that seem like all the parts I would need?
Do you need a LCD screen? Other than that...everything should work. One last thing though, those Corsair Dominators have massive heat sinks on them and usually people who like to overclock get them. Plus they are wildly expensive for what they are.
Since you won't be able to overclock I would reccomend these sticks instead:
