This build is exclusively for gaming, mainly multiplayer games, WoW, D3, GW2 and I would like to run everything on Max without any hiccups!
Being as is the my first ever build, and I intend to do it on my own, I was hoping for some assistance/verification that all parts are sound and compatible as well as some advice on a good mobo and GPU.
I was hoping to get a mobo that would have room for Crossfire/SLI even though I dont intend on using it right away (as the games I play right now dont support more then 1 GPU), I hope to in the future.
As for the GPU I was looking at either an Asus 7850 2gb or a GTX550ti, this is where I plan to invest the big bucks as it will have the most impact on my gaming experience.
My main concerns are:
- Compatible mobo
- Case doesn't need to look better then a cardboard box but a quite PC is a huge deal for me.
- Performance on high settings is of absolute necessity, this shouldn't be too difficult as the games I play aren't very demanding.
Current running total is $422.80, I would LIKE to keep it under $800.
Thank you for your time and I greatly appreciate everyones advice and input. If you would like to suggest a completely different system, be my guest, I am open to all suggestions.
Meh, I'd go for 1600MHz memory. RAM is so cheap these days. PSU: Corsair tx series would be great, cheaper, and more efficient. 650-750 watts will be plenty. I'd look at an Asrock z77 extreme 4. Fairly cheap board. Not sure about the GPU though. Although, I'd look into aiming for a radeon hd 6870 or something of that sort. You may have to sacrifice a bit on the cpu in order to keep it in budget. Good luck.
