Through the advice of this forum, I have a pretty solid build set up. I have a couple of questions about the cpu/gpu. I am staying with intel and nvidia. It will be on a 23 or 24" monitor at 1900x1200. I do not want to overclock. Only for the upcoming simcity. I know that the game is over 4 months away and I have seen the projected requirements. I am looking for some thoughts and ideas based on this forum's immense knowledge of gaming and computer processing. I know there are no benchmarks, but how does your knowledge apply to my questions. I don't need ultra settings, med to high is fine. I do not want any lag, even with large cities and regions.
1. Am thinking the i5-3450. Do you feel that I will need more or that I can save a few bucks and get less?
2. EVGA 2 GB GTX 660 (non ti). Do you feel that I will need more or that I can save a few bucks and get less?
I understand that these "answers" are based on your feelings that are in turn based upon you experience. That is exactly what I am looking for, not someone telling me to wait 5 months for benchmarks.
Thanks again Tom's forum visitors.
