Having received a lot of really helpful advice from the Tom's hardware community regarding my last computer, I was wondering if you guys could give me some feedback on my component choices for a new build I'm planning on assembling in about a month.
Approximate Purchase Date: approx one month from now
Parts Preferences: NVIDIA for GFX (bad experience with AMD cards in the past), Intel for processors
Overclocking: probably not much, don't have much experience overclocking
SLI or Crossfire: would be a plus, but not necessary
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200
Additional Comments: I know its a bit early to be looking if I'm only going to be assembling the build a month from now, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what I could get with my current budget restrictions.
After looking around a bit, this is what I came up with:
If you end up getting the GTX 560 no Ti, you might as well go with the 6870 for $30-$40 less. It has basically the same performance. AMD has actually fixed most of their issues. You probably won't experience any honestly. I've had my 5850 for 2 years and have encountered no issues at all really. So I don't really know where others go wrong other than bad driver installation and not fully cleaning out old drivers.
