Approximate Purchase Date: Anytime before June 21st
Budget Range: $1300-$1500 will spend more if I must. Ive always been bad at estimating prices.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming is the very main focus (I am a BF3 addict), then movie watching next.
Parts Not Required: Gotta be honest..I am starting from nothing here. The only thing I wont need are speakers. Whats everyones opinions on wireless mice and keyboards? Is it bad for gaming?
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com I guess, but any site is fine.
Parts Preferences: Intel and Nvidia preferred please! But I will certainly hear you out with an open mind.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe. Right now Id prefer to just have a single card. But a MOBO that can SLI would be nice in case I ever change my mind in the future.
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080+! I am really bad with imagining sizes in my head, but I wanna say a 24" is optimal? Its hard for me to say because I have a gorgeous 40" HDtv in my room that I game on with my PS3 (yes I am a PC gaming noob, newly converting! Teach me your ways!) and I so I cant imagine gaming on a 24"...ive been jaded!! Would my tv even work alright for a monitor? Has anyone done this? Only problem I can see is that id be using my pc on my bed and not a desk, so that may be awkward and uncomfortable with a kb/mouse set up.
Additional Comments: 1TB-2TB preferred. Also looking for a very small cheap 30-60gb SSD for putting my OS and favorite applications/games on. Id like to be able to play BF3 on ultra, but If it makes a significant drop in price to play it on high, ill compromise. Also, the Intel i5-2500k seems perfectly fine, I think. Thats about the only part ive officially decided on. The rest is up for discussion! Thanks!
Thank you, I appreciate it! Like I said, im completely new so even this information is very helpful. Monitor it is! Ill go into an actual store so I can actually see each monitor size in person, but for the convenience of this thread, lets say im looking for something around a 24"
