System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, PVRing console gaming, Game development, internet browsing, Watching videos
Are you buying a monitor: Yes, looking for 27 inch with HDMI switch for consoles to play on. Just want one, as my other monitors now will be the left and right monitors.
Parts to Upgrade: Looking to get all new, donating working old ones to friend's comp.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: memoryexpress.com preferred, but not essential
Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Parts Preferences: No preference. Prefer good balance between performance and price
SLI or Crossfire: Yes
Your Monitor Resolution: Need 1920x1080 or better for best console gaming experience.
Additional Comments: I need a PC capable of handling alot of intense debugging processes from UDK and Unity game development, but mostly would like it to be able to play any PC game slated to come out in the next 2-3 years on high performance. Cost really isn't a huge factor, but I would like to maintain something reasonable. I'd like to have a 3 monitor set up (new one for the middle and then my old ones for the sides)
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: PSU and motherboard fried in power surge. Video card becoming outdated.
All help given is greatly appreciated. I have a basic understanding of most components I'd need, but I would like a bit more of an experienced voice to help guide me in my buying decision.
