Building me a new pc to game with. Mostly D3 and LoL right now but want to future proof it.
I have 1k to build with maybe a tad more.
What parts do you guys suggest. I have people telling me i7 with a 570, but some say get an i5 and a 670.
Personally I would get something like this. Not all the parts are from newegg but the prices should be similar. I did also put the potential for overclocking there just because it's a nice option if you ever want to change your mind, but if you don't want to OC and would like to save the cash for another part or something then you can drop the K version of the cpu, get an H77 mobo, drop the PSU down to 500W, and get rid of the aftermarket cooler, but that's if you don't want to OC in the future
I love that build! Just one thing, I haven't really liked radeon cards since i last tried one in 2004. It was just garbage compared to an equally priced nvidia. Have they made huge improvements? IS that card mentioned better than a 570gtx?
I also used to love Nvidia cards, but the ATI 7800 series in particular are simply amazing. The 7870 trumps the 570 in almost all cases and even gives the 580 a run for it's money. It also uses less power and is slightly cooler. You can check out full review from Tom's Hardware right here:
