My 3rd Gaming rig Need help

October 29, 2012 6:04:32 PM

Hi, Im currently building my 3RD rig and i got a couple of choices ill post later but now, im going to fill this application to make you guys understand what i need/want :) 
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)

Budget Range: 400-550$ (AFTER REBATES)

System Usage from Most to Least Important:HARDCORE PURE GAMING (i have a laptop with good specs for watching movies and surfing)

Are you buying a monitor: Yes I am but this would be bought locally from another budget that i put, No thanks i don't need advice about which monitor to buy ^^



Parts to Upgrade: Everything ALL PARTS :p  i may be able to put my hands on an hdd but please include that incase i couldn't :D 

Do you need to buy OS: Yes but this would be from another budget that has no interference on the PC Budget.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: My Dads friend has this company, it has basically all the parts you can think about and it can order any parts soo it doesn't really matter post any site :) 

Location:Asia , Jordan

Parts Preferences: AMD/INTEL i just need a good rig and im going to listen to both amd and intel lovers trying to know wich one is better and wich parts i should use and wich parts i shouldn't use.

Overclocking: Yes it's definitely an option i will OC down the road

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe :D 

Your Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024, 1440x900 I wouldn't be exceeding these its one of those :p 

Additional Comments: Well. The computer im going to build is totaly dedicated to gaming like WoW, Bf3, Online games, Crysis 2, Batman Arkham, and all those HIGH-END, and ill definitely be playing FPS the most then MMORPG although im going to spend quite alot on WoW xD

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have a nvidia 520MX -.- that should be enough...
