I am currently pricing out a gaming rig upgrade, mainly to play PlanetSide 2 in all its glory, but I also want to build in as much future proofing as I can afford. I have done quite a bit of research but if any guru has any suggestions or tweaks to the setup then i'd be more than appreciative
Note: I already have a Coolmaster case with 2 3.5" rear case fans and a 5.5" front fan, and a Sata 6gb/s HD. I plan to go with stock CPU fansink for the time being and add watercooling when it gets to the stage I need to overclock the CPU. I know I should add a SSD but i'm going to wait a while as the prices are still falling pretty steeply and I reckon its worth waiting for a wee bit.
I am pretty fixed on budget but could maybe scrape together another very small bit if it would make a tangible difference. Any ideas welcome
will you use the hyperthreading in the 3770k? is it only for gaming? you probably wouldn't need more then 8GB of ram. whats your total budget? need an os?
i was so disappointed in planetside 2. everyone is in a tank. it should be called vehicleside 2. i wonder why they even let you by a soldier with a gun.
I already have win 7 ultimate, case, HDD, monitors and external sound card. Upgrade budget is about £950. Yes i use hyperthreading for development work. I know the 16gb might be a bit excessive but I do some sound and vid editing and want a bit of future proofing
