hello im building a pc for the first time.
i only play games and browse a bit, so it will be a gaming machine.
the main goal of the build is to be able to play arma 3 decently, i know the game isnt out yet, so speculating on specs is a fools game, but lets do it anyway XD
yes a change of the ram would not have a big impact on my budget, searching for alternatives atm, i thougth HIS where a respected brand, hmm the thing is there is a good sale going on, and at full price i simply cannot afford both an i5 and a 7870.
you can get the i5 for now and when the prices drop, get the 7870. the his card has a great cooler but i dont know too much about the company since they are not a major brand. im basing my opinion off of others so you might want to take it with a grain of salt
you can power 2 7870s with 650w easily. if you ask me, id get the SSD first since you wouldnt have to go through the hassle of reinstalling windows on the SSD and copying all the necessary saved files from the hard drive. you will also have to reactivate windows if you transfer from a hard drive to a SSD. so it is better off to start off with a SSD and when you need more storage, you can get the hard drive and just go to task manager and get windows to recognize the drive
yes the thing is however, i own a 750 gb hdd so there is no need for me 2 purchase more atm, i woul much rather buy an ssd when i can afford a 250gb ssd for windows + all my games, but thanks for the thougths on PSU´s. btw is there anyway for me to close this thread again ?
1: do you have the antec 302 in denmark? its a cheaper case that has the same features as the corsair 300r
2: agility ssds are unreliable. get something like a samsung 830, sandisk extreme, or crucial m4 instead
the g43 was perfectly fine. best value for money on the market, imo.and think twice before buying a ssd and sacrificing performance for it. it wont give you 1! frame more and if youre rly on a budget..., buy it later on.
the here so called "hassle" with reinstalling i would see as tidying up
