Hi! I've posted a little bit earlier in the year asking for advice, and now that a few months have passed and new hardware is either out or coming out very soon, I have tweaked the build I have been working on. This would be my first build. here is the link. I am looking to start purchasing early next month. Is there anything I could change that would give me better performance and bring it within my budget? It's not a strict budget, but the cheaper the better. One side question: Is the 680 worth it, or would it be better to just go with the 670? Is it easy to overclock? I have never done it before.
This build would only be used for gaming, as I have a laptop for everything else. I want to be able to play games like BF3 or Crysis or Skyrim on Full Highest Settings. By the monitor, you can see I will be playing on a single 1920x1080 monitor. Would these components achieve that? As I understand, they should, but it's always best to get a second opinion.
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated and is strongly encouraged, and thank you all in advance!
Would work no problem. Just stick with Home Premium 64 bit. Should only be 100 + or - 20 bucks. I would go with Why_Me's advice for case, PSU, and MoBo. Yours wil have alot of features that will not help you achieve what you really want. I think the gtx 670 is a very good choice. Price and performance, I thinik it is a better GPU than the 680.
