System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Game Development
Parts Not Required:Keyboard, Monitor, Mouse, Speakers, Headphones, Mic, Webcam
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Not too sure, I suppose the most reliable and best priced
Country:United States of America
Parts Preferences:Not too sure if I should go with an AMD CPU or a Intel CPU? I hear most are going with Intel so most likely an Intel CPU, Idk what particular Mobo either so any suggestions on the best Mobo and CPU for Gaming and Game Design would be great, same going for the rest of the parts, Case, RAM, Harddrive, (CD/DVD dont have to be the best or most expensive), PSU, GPU, Fans, I need the best suggestions for all. If I left out any parts that would benefit me greatly in my need for Gaming and Game Development then please add in with the build suggested.
Overclocking: I would like to say yes since I plan on not only using this for gaming but game design (if you disagree or suggest diffrent please let me know)
SLI or Crossfire: If it is relevant to Gaming and Game Design then yes ( same as overclocking, best suggestion on this subject would be appreciated)
Monitor Resolution: 1366x768 (may get a new monitor than what I have but dont know yet, will post if do)
Additional Comments:Well Ive pretty much made clear that Im going to mostly be using this for Gaming and Game Development, so whatever the best build anyone can suggest for my particular want, need, and price range, then I will feel simply greatful and helped. Thanks to all who read.
Well lets just assume im going the way of Intel and that im going the way of Crossfire without overclocking what would be the best CPU, Mobo, GPU, RAM, Hard Drive, PSU, Fans, Case for Gaming and G. Development? (again if I missed out any parts that would benefit me towards those needs please add in the new build suggestion) Thanks!
This is a respectable build, will do games modern games at a medium-high performance and demolish older ones. As for game development, no idea. If it involves doing lots of rendering (character models, textures, Photoshop) you might want to bump up the RAM to 12 or 16gb.
EDIT: Dont know what Operating System your using, if its a 32bit OS, you'l need to upgrade to 64bit if you want to use more than 3.5gb of that RAM. Windows Home 64bit is something around $100.
