my original rig was a 3820k in a rampage IV Extreme, 3 gtx 670 FTW sli'd, and 4x4gb of corsair vengeance, 1000 watt cooler master PSU, all water cooled. times got tough and i had to sell. now i have a couple dollars and im looking to buy another build, im looking between 600-1300$ i know i will not have anything close to what i had before and ill admit that i am an intel/nvidia fanboy but AMD is peaking my interest lately.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week-jan
Budget Range: 600-1300
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet, wifes school work (MS office)
Hi friend! I've edited my post that reflects the build. Yes it is very cheap compared to your 3 GTX 670 build but it can play most games at max with your 1920 x 1080p monitor. Although if you get a 27 inch monitor, it should already be 1440p.
2 more questions for you, why Z75 vs Z77, and is HIS reliable? i know everyone loves the price. but is price your reasoning? i forgot to mention i have a 250Gb SSD, and 2500GB's of HDD's and its going in a DD torture rack for now, i have a level 10 gt but i like the test bench set up
Here's a couple of builds you might want to consider. The first build is AMD based, the second is similar but with Intel CPU, mobo. Both fall within your $1300 budget. The peformance should be fairly similar.
