Solved 1 Week till I Pull the Trigger On Build Tags: New Build Systems Last response: June 28, 2012 7:47 PM in Systems Share zerokontrol April 25, 2012 3:41:50 AM Approximate Purchase Date: 1 Week Budget Range: $900 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming. Ie. bf3, HoN, LoL, Diablo III Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, speakers Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Canadian websites like newegg.ca , canadacomputers.ca , ncix.ca , tigerdirect.ca etc. Country: Canada Parts Preferences: Intel CPU no preference on gpu company. Overclocking: Don't think it will fit budget SLI or Crossfire: No, but leaving the option for the future might be a good idea. Monitor Resolution: 1024x768 for now, will upgrade in July or so to 1080. Additional Comments: Was originally going to buy in June but have decided that I might aswell pull the trigger next week if I can figure out what I want. The $900 CAD is somewhat tight it seems. Would a higher processor (2400/2500k) with a lower GPU (6870) be a smarter choice over a 2120 with a 7850? What I have come up with thus far.

One other thing, how is the PSU? What is do you think would be a good PSU for future proofing in terms of crossfireing? More about : week till pull trigger build niknovacain April 25, 2012 4:09:25 AM I would go modular with the power supply and get at least 600-650W if you want to future proof it. Maybe even get a 750W just to have peace of mind. Best solution azeem40 April 25, 2012 6:08:32 AM Modular helps somewhat, but is never needed.
