So I've never built a computer, and honestly I'm not very good with the hardware specs of them. As of right now I'm in Afghanistan looking to have a new desktop ready for me when I come back. And I want it to be a bombshell.
I need everything from the internals, to keyboards, mouse, and I would like duel monitors.
If it can come prebuilt, even better. But I have some friends that say they can put it together from scratch.
My budget is about 2k for the internal of the computer.
And about 500-600 for everything else.
I mostly play MMORPGs but I do play some shooters too, and I have a lot of movies on digits to so it will be something like my theatre.
I'm new to this forum so if I've misplaced this thread or additional information just tell me and I'll be glad to add anything or make any corrections needed.
This build should be plenty for you. If you wanted to you could get a second gtx 670 and play every game at 60+ fps easily. As a suggestion, I would stay away from pre built pc's. I find that they are generally overpriced.
For the keyboard you could do better like a razer black widow but I can't see a reason you would need a 110$ keyboard for you needs.
Awesome, thanks for such a quick response. I saw the format a little late I apologize for that.
Is there anything I can add to make it run quiet? And a friend was telling me that I should be getting a new 'heat sink'? Whatever that is.
A heat sink is a CPU cooler. The CPU comes with a CPU cooler otherwise known as a heat sink fan. The stock heat sink fan is not very good at cooling and can get very loud. The noctua CPU cooler is consider the best CPU air cooler on the market and is practically silent. Other options are closed water cooling systems like the corsair h100. But a watercooling system can leak and ruin your 2000$ pc so I tend to stay away from it.
As for silent the case fans itself are actually pretty good at keeping quiet. Since there are 3 230 mm fans they can spin at low rpm and push a lot of air. (Typically, the higher rpm the louder).
I am not aware of "big" new products that are going to come out. There is the idea that nvidia will come out with a gtx 675 and a gtx 685 in march but I do not see a reason to get it. There will be limited stock a ridiculously high premium. You can always get the latest and greatest new hardware but is it worth the price vs performance? Hope this helps and you should have tons of fun with this once you get back.
Thanks a lot for the help, if you think of any other configs, or if anybody else has a different one by all means please tell me. And err... explain why it would be better. Just looking at the specs doesn't really tell me much.
