I am looking into buying a new gaming computer as I am giving the old one to the girl to play Diablo and Guild Wars 2 with me. I am also getting these parts at cost +6% so I am not sure what is marked up a lot or not; so I was hoping I could get some help on picking parts and as to what would be more worth it with the discount.
This will be a gaming rig, so just need performance and some future compatibility in case of SLI in the future.
I’ll be purchasing everything from Memory Express in Calgary.
Here is what I have so far:
Approximate Purchase Date: when decided.
Budget Range: $1300-$1700
System Usage: Gaming, Movies
Preferred Website for Parts: memoryexpress.com only
Overclocking: Light duty
Video Card GTX 670 EVGA Or Gigabyte OC $400-$425 (whichever is available, if ever lol) eVGA GTX 670 Gigabyte GTX 670 OC
EDIT: Also added Asus cards to the possibility. Will rank 1)Asus 2)eVGA 3)Gigabyte in the order that I am willing to get them. Whichever is available I will grab.
I want to stick to Memory Express as that is the place I am able to get the cost+6% price tag.
I changed the SDD to the M4, seems to be the more reliable choice. Thanks for the input!
How are the ASrock motherboards in comparison to the Gigabyte one I selected on the website?
Anything else I should take a look at?
I guess my last questions are what power supply should I use? Modular would be best but if cost is a lot better on a regular one I'm willing to grab that.
I'm considering: Corsair TX750M
What is the alternative to the M4 SSD if it is not available?
