Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Loyal Newegg fan
Country: FL, USA
Parts Preferences: Whatever is most efficient and cost effective. Im a fan of Radeon GPUs for budget PCs.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe. Hope to be able to have this build be upgrade-able in the future.
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 Max
Additional Comments: Would like it to be heat efficent, it will be in a small room.
Also, this isn't my first build, by far, I always enjoy the wisdom of these forums.
So anything with moderate difficulty/tech I can work with.
Main focus of this for gaming will be Guildwars 2
ALSO: Important, If at all possible, a wireless PCIe card would be amazing if its within budget and fits, it will save me from routing a wire about 200ft.
if you want to shave a few $ off a psu, something like this or this can work in a low power gpu build. the 7770 in crossfire should not take much power
edit: Mobos should not bottleneck gpus, especially if they are new gen ones. mobo price really is what you want on it as the more you pay, the more features it has. and has a very small affect on actual fps. if you are not an overclocker, this gap is even smaller.
that is a solid build AS IS. if anything you can go DOWN to a seasonic 520 since that rig won't come close to 450 watts MAX. the difference in cost can get you a wireless card BUT if you're playing online, stay wired so no lag or connection problems while playing your MMO - geez 200 feet though . . . .
