G'day people, put together a build for gaming/home theatre..
its probably $300 over my preferred budget especially considering i have not added in a keyboard yet.
SO really just asking for a couple sets of fresh eyes with some tips/advice for some cost cutters and perhaps some improvements on hardware that can be made for a cheaper price?
also wondering if the water cooler is even needed at all?
On top of all that, i do have a question about adding a wireless adapter, which will i get the best proformance out of?
(current residence is wireless only)
any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated! thanks every1 who posts in advance!
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Playing World of Warcraft at max settings as smooth as possible.
Also being used to connect to 55inch HDTV Samsung smart tv for a bluRay player and to watch HD downlaoded movies and storing movies ect. (gaming will also be done on TV until monitor is bought
Are you buying a monitor: at some point yes tho will be using 55' HDTV LED Samsung smart tv.
Depends on the game and usage.
Some games are coded toward Nvidia cards, so you get better performance from them compared to an equivalent AMD. Same the other way around. If you start raising the resolution above 1080p and enabling heavy AA effects, the superior memory bus on AMD cards will pull ahead. If you want 3D gaming, the Nvidia card is better.
Then factor other misc things like overclocking and power usage,
Then you get more professional factors like AMD's superior OpenCL performance vs Nvidia CUDA. OpenCL can help in computational programs, while CUDA can add performance when video rendering.
All comes down to the cards being compared and what you are going to use them for. I would read some reviews on the cards and decide which is better or you.
That Antec High Current 620W should be plenty and give you room to upgrade to a more powerful card later.
Well the main use will be for World of Warcraft gaming .. perhaps mechwarrior online when it rolls around and well watching HD movies on my 55inch tv..
thats about it really
as for overclocking, still new to this all and dont no much about it hah
