It is time to upgrade and I want to take advantage of Black Friday sales. My main interest is gaming. On a much lesser priority, I might do video editing but maybe not since I have a mac for that already.
My current setup is an intel core 2 dual 32 bit procesor with an MSI board that I dont remember the number, Nvidia GTX 260, and 4gb of ram which will probably get upgraded because I think they only run to 1066.
I am keeping 750 corsair power supply, thermaltake Amror MX ATX mid size, 2 monitors HD LED 24".
I was reading articles and I was thinking of this set up.
I have been reading some articles and I am not sure if this is a setup that will survive for about 5 years. Should I be getting something newer? I am interested in spending less than $1000. Is this too old school? Do i need to read more articles and find newer stuff? Also, I am not into overclocking, so I dont need nothing special for such. my main worry here is the CPU and MOBO. The rest can be adjusted
I am choosing that MOBO because of the Thunderbolt since I do have a MAC for work and it will be good to have the similar technology. I like the WIFI too but not sure if that will be able to replace my wireless router.
So just using amazon for pricing this looks like $973. I am still open for more suggestions, speacially on the MOBO too. Thanks in advance.
