Hey guys. This is my first gaming PC and I would like some advice. I would like to keep my build under $1,000.
Here are my current plans:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($219.99 )
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($45.99
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($88.98)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($407.98)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.49)
Power Supply: Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($136.98)
Optical Drive: LG GH24LS70 DVD/CD Writer ($28.12)
Total: $1092.52 (including shipping)
As you can see, that's over $1000.
So here's my question: Should is it worth waiting another month (that's when I'll likely have the money for the build posted above) to get the 670 FTW or should I drop $100 dollars by getting the GeForce GTX 660 Ti . Or maybe i should change something else? I welcome all suggestions with my build.
Oh and I do not plan to over clock. I really don't want to do that with my first build....at least not yet.
You have a board meant for a single card and a psu to run two of those cards. Either size down on the psu or find a board that that supports SLI.
