I wanted to build my own PC but I'm not too knowledgeable in this area. My budget is <$2500. I'm mainly going to use the PC for gaming on the alienware optx aw2310 3d ready monitor. I'd like to play games on highest settings and don't want to upgrade anything for another year atleast. I did some research and so far I decided on
G.SKILL Ripjaws series 2GB X3 (6B)
GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GTX 570 X2 in SLI configuration (want only Nvidia graphics cards)
Intel i7 processor 2600k 3.4 GHz
I was wondering if you guys could help me for the rest? Thank you so much. This is my first time on this forum.
It is OK to buy PSU which generates more power than you need by 100W, even I recommend it to be honest. There will be money increase, but it's OK and worth it. Because to have that extra 100W power, you can use that to overclock or to upgrade your parts to other higher end parts.
But it's a good idea to see what PSU are you getting, because you should be very careful when selecting PSU. Not popular brands of PSU might have written '1000W' while they can only provide 300W and takes 1000W from your wall.
