Help with my build!!!

Hello everyone!

I'm using the label from TH to describe my needs.

Approximate Purchase Date: End of January 2013.

Budget Range: 900 Euros- 1050 Euros. No Rebates. No Shipping (I'm going to get it myself).

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: Fully new build

Do you need to buy OS: Yes => OEM

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (I'm letting the PC be build for me)

Location: Brussels, Belgium.

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, the rest: no preference

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: ? Don't really know what this is? I'm not using multiple monitors.

Your Monitor Resolution: A good gaming resolution (not too expensive monitor)

Additional Comments: I don't need a really fancy case or anything, just good bang for my buck within the budget range. Games in mind: Skyrim with mods, BF 3, AC3, COD BO 2, Far Cry 3, Just Cause 2, etc.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have a laptop from back in 2008, absolutely not suitable for gaming. I really want to game again (modern games).

Thanks in advance for all your help!

  7. 2 months is way too early to really be set on the exact components. Prices change daily so may change what you get. But there is nothing wrong with anything you chose.
  8. Ok, thanks. I'll make a new topic then in about two months :p .
