$2k Gaming Rig Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Last response: April 11, 2012 12:53 AM in Systems Share Mhk8302 April 11, 2012 12:19:18 AM So I'm coming home from a deployment and I'll be gifting myself my first true gaming PC. End goal is to clip along in ultra settings in all the high-end games in eyefinity playing on my three 23" monitors. If you'll see the link below you can take a gander at my build and let me know what should be tweaked. My biggest fear is creating a bottle neck in the system somewhere. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... The second big use for this PC will be for ripping DVD's and converting their format. That's why I included the secondary DVD drive along with the Blu-Ray drive. I RIP a lot . . . I have plenty of storage on a HTPC that will house all my media. So I'm not in need of much space on this new one. Would love any critique on this build as I'm going to be spending a good amount on it. So I'd love to get it right the first time. Hopefully I did good! But I'd love to hear from the masses if anything should be added or if something is simply just overkill to the 3rd degree.

Use that $ on a 120 Hz monitor. logan77 April 11, 2012 12:38:34 AM All you need is a CPU Cooler Related resources New Gaming Rig W/Monitor...trying to keep it under $ 2k - Forum Gaming rig under 2k need advise - Forum New gaming rig <$ 2k , compatability check or parts suggestions - Forum 2k to build gaming rig for next 2/3 years need ideas - Forum New 2k Gaming Rig post 4870/280 Release! - Forum Can't find your answer ?
