Thank you for taking the time to take interest in this post. Looking for some advice and other general ideas about a build I am thinking of going with. Bare with me, please, I do apologize in advance for me indeed being a beginner ( a noob if you will on more advanced computer knowledge. )
So, let's begin.
Approximate Purchase Date: Not extremely soon.
Budget Range: 1,500$ or under; after rebates/shipping
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming,surfing the web, skype/other applications
Are you buying a monitor: Yes / No ( Any suggestions? I am thinking about doing double monitors of: Monitors139.99$ )
Do you need to buy OS: Yes / No ( Windows 7 Home Premium OEM | Any different suggestions? ) Windows 7 Home Premium99.99$
Parts Preferences: Going AMD for first build.
Overclocking:Yes / No / Maybe
SLI or Crossfire:Yes / No / Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution:1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 ( The monitor I'm looking at is 1920x1080. )
Additional Comments: I'm wanting it to be a quiet, long lasting, fairly decent gaming PC. I would like to play MMORPGs on high/semi high settings as well as games like Diablo 3 on fairly good settings. As for sound cards, I don't really know if I will need one, depending on onboard audio. I don't plan on having multiple games/streaming up at the same time, but I would like to be able to have a game up along with skype/Internet browser up. And if I do end up overclocking, will I need a different fan?
Total w/o rebates/shipping: ~1,240$ Total w/ rebates/shipping: ~1,250$ Total w/ rebates/shipping & both monitors: ~1,530$
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Wanting to play games and always be impressed.
Keyboard/Mouse: Looking to get a new mouse and keyboard as well, if anyone has any suggestions!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this very long ( atleast to me ) post. I would appreciate any advice/suggestions I can get! Thanks in advance.
