Hello people of the interwebs.
After being on a macbook for 4 years, I think it's time to move back to windows and build my own computer. The main uses of the computer are for the occasionally gaming, video and photo editing, programming and just browsing. These are the parts that I've selected so far since my budget was about $2000. I just wanted a couple tips and opinions on this build, whether all these parts are compatible are not. I dont want to screw up hahaa. I really just aimed for a kinda future proof computer that I can stay with for a long time. I didn't really want to move to a 2011 mobo.
i'd look at a samsung 830 SSD, not sure about that sandisk . . you really do not need more than a 650 watt PSU but no harm in what you picked. and that 570 is out of stcok, you could get by with a less expensive one but stick with nVidia 5xx series for the cuda support from the fermi gpus.
Thanks alot for the replies, I might keep the 750w psu incase I want to expand in the future. I'm not gonna do professional video editing just the occasional for projects, not any extreme rendering. But it still is a viable option. I'll look into the 670/480 if I can afford the $100+ more
Well thats his benchmakrs but for me, it depends on the game. With Battlefield 3 i get around 64c if its not overclocked. and my idle temps are around 31 with my side panel off and 34-37 with the side panel on... I also have benched Metro 2033, Bad Company 2 and a few others if youd like to know what kind of frames i get
