Hey guys, this is my first time in the forum and well, i want to build a pc for my personal use. I’ve been doing some research to make the best choices for my budget which is 1000$ (more or less). Some friends advised me to buy a Mac. But I’m not sure and I really want to make the best investment.
I’m looking for a powerful pc, for video and picture editing and graphic design (I’m a design student) but I’m also interested in some gaming. I’m also a little concern about how long it will take for the pc to become obsolete, u know in terms of new techs coming up and stuff.
So far I’ve came up with this so far (need some help with the rest of the components):
Intel Core i7-600k (is hyper-threading really needed?).
4 Corssaire RAM (16gb)
Axus Z Genie motherboard
Nvdia Gforce-540 graphic card (the one recommended here)
I would go for the 2600k, IB is not an upgrade from SB.
Thanx man, yeah i think the 2600k is a pretty good choice, but im having trouble making a decision about other part, my budget is kinda low and i still need to buy the monitor. But yeah, so far the 2600k is my choice.
