Build rig for 1080P gaming on LCD TV Tags: New Build Systems Last response: May 27, 2012 10:40 AM in Systems Share CaptainOrgazmo May 26, 2012 7:56:41 AM Hi all PC gaming gurus I've recently decided to join the PC gaming scene after having had enough of console's inferior performance for years. I am looking to build a dedicated gaming PC to put in my bedroom. Setup aim: - Run games smoothly at 1080P on a 37 inch Panasonic LCD TV - Fairly quiet and compact, will be placed in corner of room I did as much research as I can, and here's wot I got so far: Graphics: I already have a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 OC, so i guess that'll do Motherboard: The smallest board possible which will support another 7870 card for Crossfire 1-2 years later Currently considering AsRock Extreme-4, but not sure if I should go the M or normal edition CPU: Probably an Ivy-bridge i5 3550 or 3570K Memory: Not sure which is best match for my setup Case: This is the hard one... need a small compact one that'll fit Crossfire Maybe something from Antec? PSU: If case doesn't come with PSU, then probably Antec Trupower 550W. Sound: Hoping for a mobo with onboard sound for my Corsair Vengeance 1300 set. Controller: No idea, maybe adaptor for using PS3/Xbox360 controller? Wifi: Not sure if I should use a PCI adaptor or USB dongle? OS: I assume Windows 7 is best for games?
