Hey there. I've been planning to build up my own gaming rig for a while now, but never put the time into it. I'm finally putting some effort into it now, and need some assistance. I've been doing some research on bits and pieces, which i will be pasting below for commenting.
Basic Summary for what i'm looking for: i want a rig that will give me high-end performance. Some of the titles i play are Star Craft 2, Guild Wars 2, Aion, Mine Craft, couple Strategy's and a few more MMO's. From what I've heard, these games are far more CPU consuming than GPU consuming. I don't play any FPS on PC, so I've heard that will save some buks on a SUPER Graphics card i dont need for lets say overclocking BATTLEFIELD 3, or Black Ops 2. -.- Um, "overclocking" is another topic i'm not too familiar with, but i don't think ill be needing it for myself since i might not be straining my video cards. (In any regards towards that comment please criticize) Yes, "Cards", as in more than 1-, because i also have my heart set on an Cross fire Eyefinity 3 Monitor set up. about 24"- 26". 1080p. HDMI, Native Port [whatever that stuff means]. umm, really im looking for something that will last, will give me an awesome experience, and that will give me a significant satisfaction towards my goal Now here's the fun part, Im really hoping to spend round $1,500, seeing how that's my budget, But if for a significant performance boost id need to hit maybe 1,900 or 2,000, i can squeeze.
What i have so far: ( If i can save $$ anywhere please comment )
