Right now I am planning to get a components to build a Gaming PC for Christmas. I was wanting to know if this would be a good plan?
Ok, this is my first build, and I need EVERYTHING. OS, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, and Mouse Pad. I already have headset. I am looking for any other suggestions I can get, also, do NOT suggest Newegg. I live in Tennessee which is a place Newegg charges tax.
The things I plan to do are: Gaming, Possibly Video editing/rendering, Web, and Schoolwork. The games I plan to play are Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Black Ops 2, maybe Starcraft 2, and some other upcoming titles.
Alright, here's what I'm thinking. I can get that EVGA 560 Ti now, and then in about 2-3 years, get another one and SLI it. I already put a 700w SLI Ready PSU in the build and the Motherboard is CrossfireX/SLI ready. Once I SLI the 560 Ti my computer should last a couple of more years right? I don't really want to max out games, I just want to play them at better than console quality, smoothly. Please tell me if this is a good idea? If not, please share your ideas with me, I would be more than willing to read and consider them. Thanks
First off you do not need a mouse pad, that is a waste of money. Don't include software in your builds - and this includes anti virus programs and games. You want your computer to be about hardware only, get the software and the little things later.
For $1400 including monitor - I'd go with a completely different build. I would have suggested this last year, but that was last year.
