I am looking to build a gaming pc, but I am going to be buying it in the summer, am I better off waiting til the summer, to see prices drop? Or do they usually rise in the summer with new products being available? Also.. here is my current build plans:
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
GIGABYTE GV-R695OC-1GD Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Semi Modular High Performance ...
Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
That's a pretty good selection for the most part - love the Corsair Carbide. 16GB is unnecessary for a gaming rig however. The extra fan is also unnecessary - the Carbide is extremely well ventilated and includes plenty of fans to start with - but you should also get a Hyper 212 Evo if you're going 2500K.
I will consider getting the 7850, maybe the price will drop by the summer(3-4 months) This is my first pc, so I'm not sure about the spacing so thank you for the warning, do you suggest getting regular RAM cards instead of the ones with heatsink? I wanted to get heatsink/spreader RAM to just improve and insure no overheating will happen. Also the reason I got the 16gb RAM was there was a combo deal with the Intel i5 core, and it was only 10$ more for 8gb more of RAM. Ram can only improve your computer correct?
