I'm tuning in from my little cave in Sweden looking for some advice on this piece of hardware. Mainly uncertain about the power supply (want a "large" marginal so i can add/change parts in the future), and if the motherboard/processror/and the graphic card sympathise with the case and that everything fits and can be connected properly.
I've never build a computer before, fairly technical and friend with a computers nature overall. Hard? Mostly worried about what comes after it has been put together (drivers, setting the BIOS correctly)!
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 plus
Not sure, been thinking of it. Is it worth it? Afterall they are kind of expensive when they're not really needed.
I've been thinking about getting a Mac OS, how would that affect performance wise for games and more heavy programs like photoshop when running on a self-built PC?
If not Mac Os, a normal windows license will be needed!
Approximate Purchase Date:
A month before Christmas or so, perhaps its better to say around Christmas.
2 000 USD
I live in Sweden - Gothenburg.
Absolutly, perhaps not in a while, not to happy OC'ing when the parts are all new. But later when its more "needed".
No, i'll never bother using SLI/Crossfire.
1920x1080, might use a 2:nd monitor when using photoshop for example.
I want to be able to use this build as a foundation for future upgrades (I.E upgrading the parts that needs to and keep the old ones instead of purchasing everything new again).
