So this is the very first computer I have ever put together. I would love have you guys take a look at how I'm doing. I wanted to make it somewhat cheaper, for sure under $1,000 I wanted to get it closer to $700-$800. My main use for this computer would be gaming, I would like to have it be able to run Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, GW2, Skyrim, and other games like that on some pretty high settings. This is what I was planing on getting so far:
Basically anything over 8GB of ram is overkill. You don't really need an Hyper 212 EVO unless you're overclocking, and the 560ti will not get you max settings on BF3, my guess would be High and some medium settings
Can you provide any documentation to your claims? Because I think system lifespan is a pretty big deal.
I am not saying it will not help with the overall lifespan, yes, it probably will. My point is that you don't really need one that powerful if you aren't overclocking. They have fans come with cpu's for a reason.
