I've never built before, but ready to give it a shot. I will just be building the computer as I have the keyboard, mouse, monitor and speakers. Other than Windows 7, I have no need of other software.
I am looking for a cost anywhere between $1500 and $2000.
The most important things to me are speed of regular use (surfing internet, running programs), gaming performance, and a computer that will last.
I use my computer mainly for gaming/internet. I'd love to be able to run games on max visual settings. (The game I am playing now is Star Wars The Old Republic)
Approximate Purchase Date: Next 2 weeks
Budget Range: 1500-2000 before rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/surfing web
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference, I've been using newegg
Country: US, California
Parts Preferences: Intel, Cool looking case
Overclocking: Maybe... I would do it but I do not know how
SLI or Crossfire: Eventually yes.
Monitor Resolution: Currently running 1680x1050 (Going to upgrade monitor)
Additional Comments: Would prefer a quiet PC
I am working on NewEgg finding some killer deals and found these items for my new build for about $900. Could someone take a looks and please let me know if they see any problems or components they do not think are good?
NOT INCLUDED IN DEALS:
CPU Fan: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU: I am planning on using a GTX680 (when they come back in stock) and running 2 monitors.
I am looking for a case now. Trying to get a roomy case that's a little sexy.
Anyone able to check this build to see if it makes sense?
