I'm looking to build myself a new mid range gaming computer.
Ive already done research and think I'm close to buying
My budget is about ----$1000--- for the computer (my build has about $230 in peripherals).
Going to keep for ----3.5 YEARS----
I plan on playing -----mostly strategy----- games but not exclusively (these may be more cpu than gpu intensive?) .
Examples of games--- Spring engine, Minecraft, league of legends, Dwarf Fortress(this is important), skyrim..etc (for any higher end games or newer games high graphics settings aren't too important medium or high settings with good fps is fine)
1) Should I plan on overclocking( Ive never build or overclocked a computer before and everything is kinda confusing. I got low profile RAM so getting an aftermarket cooler is an option although I probably wont OC at least right now)
2) Everything compatible?
3)I want to go with nVidea most likely( a game i play often supports it better) but will the 660 (non ti) be enough to last for 4 years and perform fairly well with strategy games? Or should i step it up to the 660ti? (Again ultra or very high setting arent important--- i want good fps on medium/ high though for sure)
