(Just so you know, I'm not buying a monitor, and my budget is around $1600)
Alright, I am a console player. Now, I want to join the PC Community . I'm really excited to build a PC, since this shall be my first time, but! I need your opinion. How would this build work out for you (I plan on playing BF3, Skyrim, Left 4 Dead 1/2, Borderlands 1/2, GTA 4, Diablo 3, LoL, WoW, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, etc. on High-Max settings.)
Intel Core i5-3570K Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Crucial M4 128GB SSD Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case Raidmax 850W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V/EPS12V PSU Samsung DVD/CD Writer Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit)
I like what you're going with here. Only problem I have is the keyboard. I have tried the K60 before, and it really didn't feel like something I wanted to buy. Anyways, what are your thoughts on the Cooler Master HAF 922?
has brown switches. a good balance between the extremely tactile blues and the quietness of the reds
Yeah, it looks like these switches will be handy, considering I'm not living alone so my typing won't be bothering anybody too much.
Then keep the overclocking stuff. Overclocking is fun
Thanks for the reassurance! At first I thought that if I was going to overclock that my build would short out and Murphy's Law would be flying everywhere. Now that I realize that if I know what I'm doing it, overclocking can be fun
