Hey guys I'm planning on building my first computer i've been reading these forums for a few weeks now and it convinced me to build my own.
My budget is 1300$.
Approximate Purchase Date: Mid June
Budget Range: 1300$ after rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Diablo 3, Surfing the internet..
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Case (Corsair 500R)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference, I know that memoryexpress matches every prices/shipping/bundle and beats the difference by 25% so might go with them.
Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, Nvidia GPU
Overclocking: Yes (Not Now)
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Planning on OC'ing but not now I'll get a better CPU cooler when I decide to OC. Needs to include OS and Monitor. I'd like it to be futureproof
if possible. I also really want an SSD
So far thats what I came out with I'd like some comments on this, I'm open to suggestions.
Wow thanks for the fast answers! I have another question though.. Soon I'll be moving in a new appartment with my gf so this might cut the budget a bit (about 250$). Do you guys have any suggestions on a cheaper GPU that would run Diablo 3 on max settings? I'll just wait until everything settles down before getting a better quality GPU.
You can get a GTX560Ti for ~$240-260 and that will shave off some (it'll handle all new games on high settings), but you'll need a case which will add some expense. I'd look at the $40-70 cases like the Antec 300, CM Haf 912, and Lian Li First Knight.
