Approximate Purchase Date: Tomorrow morning or afternoon
Budget Range: Right now with shipping and everything I'm just over$1100. I would REALLY like to keep it that way but if need be, I can afford to spend an extra 50 bucks or so.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Battlefield 3, Skyrim, The Witcher 2, Diablo 3 Arma 2/3, DayZ) internet, Netflix.
Are you buying a monitor: No, I have a 1080p Panasonic HDTV. I will be using a DVI to HDMI cable for video
Parts to Upgrade: Anything that needs upgrading
Do you need to buy OS: I don't think so, I purchased Windows 7 Pro Full version on Disc at a store.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com only
Location: Dallas, Texas, USA
Parts Preferences: None, really
Overclocking: Maybe, I would like to be able to overclock when I have more money for better cooling, etc.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 60hz
Additional Comments: I'm open to suggestions if anyone can think of any affordable improvements that would make a big difference.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I want to be able to play Battlefield 3/The Witcher 2/Diablo 3 on mostly very-high or ultra settings with maybe no or little AA if necessary. I also want to have a machine that will run Arma 3 well, with maybe an upgrade in the next year.
Here is everything I'm getting. FYI, I have to make the entire order at the same time, and everything MUST be ordered through newegg.com
Looks great! You did a good job. Everything is compatible. I don't see anything that's screaming out at me to be changed. You could save some money by getting a Seagate HDD instead of WD. You could also change your RAM and get something a little more flashy for around the same price, plus or minus a dollar. Since you don't plan on doing SLI or Crossfire, the PSU is sufficient.
